  1. If you copy the car in the picture, you make a clone of a copy :-)))
  2. ....no, I believe I have never seen that or a similar instrument live in a car......I used the "normal" Alpina instruments, shown in your first post, before I re-designed my instrument cluster with the stack rev-counter in the middle. Cheers W.
  3. Yes, AMS or RallyeRacing. I had only the pic, found somewhere in the internet. I never had the focus on rim manufacturer history (too bad) and I have no longer any old AMS issues. I have only a few of these rar "ONS-Mitteilungen" of 1971 laying around. My research for "group2 1971" is finished, so I do not need these things anymore. But UAI has still old AMS issues. I think you know him from the 911Reg, so ask him, maybe he has more infos.
  4. No no, not Lemmerz. This is another company.
  5. Yupp, it is the well known S caliper. 89mm Yes, the Andexer car.
  6. Ask Andy Andexer, the german cabrio restauration guru, he owned or maybe still owns an Alpina racecar with the Alberts! If you google andexer and alpina you will find pics of the car with that wheels. The green one with that particular orange front. But now I remember, the wheels called also Limmer. Maybe Limmer was the manufacturer and Albert the design or the reseller... somerhing like that. The name is well known, but never did any research about that history.
  7. I have also the 71 Hack edition. There is one or two really important pics in it. For group2 period g2 (group2 1970-1971) appendix k racers, the pic with the aluminium ATE front caliper and the adjustable sway bar. This pic was really important for me at the beginning of historic motorracing with the 2002.
  8. Ahm , yes that is for sure, the Albert was before the Alpina. But I do not know exactly when the Albert came on the market and if the Albert was the first 3piece in general. I believe that, but there is no evidence.
  9. Yes, early use by Alpina Group5 cars in the 1600cc class and if I remember correct, the 2002 Turbos in the "big" class.
  10. I have to say, I do not know much about the history of these Albert centers, but these are one of the first 3 piece wheels, if you do some research on photos of the BMW race history. I believe they came on the market in 69, also possible 68. Difficult to say. The next 3piece wheels could be the Alpinas.....I do not find the papers at the moment, but I believe 69 and in 1972 came the BBS E30. Maybe BBS bought the production know how of Albert or maybe they did only a similar design, maybe the Albert production is Ronal as Alpina could be possible. Maybe someone did that research, it would be interesting. Cheers W.
  11. Hi, this is an Albert center. Dimensions similar to E30 BBS. Regards W.
  12. early TII instrument cluster in good condition.
  13. The threaded is thicker, for sure, or better my threaded ones are thicker. I have several sets of both variants. You are playing funny games here :-) Great and interesting. Let us try to find the answer. Bilstein was the only manufacturer for upside down struts. Do you really think they produce for Alpina another strut design? Makes no sense. What kind of Bilstein struts were sold by GS Koepchen or Schnitzer? Alpina sold also Fichtel&Sachs (see my ex Alpina A4 car) with negative camber and lowered spring plate. They look exactly like a normal TI strut. But no wonder, Fichtel&Sachs produces also normal TI struts. A solution can be the production year. This could be the simple answer. If I remember correct, if you buy a set of upside down at the moment you get the strut variant with this edge. I will check a few old catalogs, mayybe the pictures are good enough. Do you have threaded ones in you car? I believe yes. Cheers W.
  14. Hi Jonas, Hmmmm. The yellow ones in your pic shows the Bilstein strut without spring plate. These are a bit thicker than the other. The left in your pic have a spring plate. Here a sample of mine, there you see the difference.
  15. To be correct, this is a Bilstein Upside Down strut, maybe sold by Alpina. If the vented disks have 20mm then the disks are Alpina. Most of these disks have less than 18mm and are not longer usable. Springplate lowered or not? Negative camber? What is about the numbers on the shocks? xxx/xxx Bilstein makes these kind of struts new, but only adjustable in height not with springplate and not longer with negative camber. The parts could be interesting for someone with a historic racecar. W.
