Picked up my new Alpina XB7

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Finally found the perfect XB7 for me. Purchased what I believe to be the first Alpina Blue XB7 day after Christmas. Came from an '18 X5M...loved that car, but this one is another level of luxury. Glad to be part of the X7 community now!

These 21's remind me of AMG wheels. The 23's are very good looking also but I agree with others that ALPINA should have went with a lighter shade of paint similar to these 21's to go with the chrome trim pieces.

Depends on the exterior color, this Tanzanite Blue XB7 looks really good with 23's. ALPINA Blue is more sporty looking.

Beautiful.. love the wheels

Rear tires are $786 a piece and only one option currently. I hope no one is in a rush for a tire replacement.

Have you checked the lease program on this? No one should think about leasing this car right now... 38% residual on 36 mo 12k miles.

They look amazing and proportioned to the vehicle but no dedicated winter tire available as of yet. Would have to use the 22 or 21 off of other X7 for winter. Considering the cost one should consider the tire/wheel insurance regardless if lease or finance or outright ownership.

It could be worse. You could have rain and wind on top of that every day if you lived where I live.

Is it possible to get the XB7 with the M Sport Steering wheel or something similar? I absolutely loathe the standard steering wheel.
