Alpina Valve Cover Paint Color & Finish?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I'm currently under the investigation phase of my resto.

I'm about to restore the engine and now have a couple of questions.

I'm restoring a early Alpina engine and I'm not sure which way to go with the finishing of the valve cover.

Were Alpina valve covers painted in flat black, glossy black or black wrinkle finish? (with the raised letters polished and the Alpina logo (which I have)).

I'm just trying to get it right, doing it the closest to the way it originally came so maybe some of the Alpina experts here can chime in.

The valve cover I have is the one in the pictured below...

Anyway, any info is welcome.

Thanks in advance,





Ok, Let her rip!

my guess is it's satin black

not gloss or flat

Wurth sells it - hint - interior plastic trim panel


you'll get your texture of wrinkle from the rough

aluminum surface

and there maybe no 'correct' finish as it may have been

what ever the flavor of the day was? - perhaps member
