We are not licensed by Alpina or BMW to reproduce the Alpina logo and none of the keyrings listed here for sale in this website shop feature Alpina keyfob badges with the Alpina logo which have been made by us.
The badges mounted onto the keyrings in this listing were bought by us from an Alpina dealership in Europe. These badges were not made by us or made for us.
We now have just a few more of these original Alpina hard enamel on chrome plate badges which we have remounted onto our classic rectangular keyfobs in premium black hide as can be seen in the photos.
We have been out of stock of the badges for some time waiting for more to arrive.
These badges were bought in from an Alpina dealership in Europe and we had to pay full retail price as apparently they are very limited stock & Alpina do not expect to relist this keyring – so that is sadly reflected in our listed price.
These particular badges are the later version badge which are larger than the early version badge .
The badges are brand new old stock from the dealership so are in mint condition.
These badges came to us mounted onto the original rectangular leather keyfobs which would not have stood the test of time as well as the badges themselves.
The leather used was more akin to upholstery hide – far too supple – and the badge mount of the originals would soon have parted company with the main fob.
In our remounted examples we have used full grain black hide of the highest quality which now results in a superb keyfob in all respects.
The photo shows the badge remounted onto our classic shape leather fob in full grain black hide – just like the original Alpina item but much stronger.
We have had very favourable feedback from customers who have bought this keyring.
Thank goodness Alpina make their vehicles of rather better materials than the leather which was used by the Company who made their keyrings !
When all the keyrings with these badges have been sold – this listing will be cancelled.
