Ok - here you go the new D3 Bi-turbo Touring - world launch car:


So D3 Bi-Turbo - most of information was already known.


However to clarify - identical in looks to the B3 - so quad pipes.
Option of 19inch wheels (20's standard)
* Note 19 inch wheels are NOT an option for the B3 as the 19inch wheel/tyre combo is not certified for the B3's Vmax - only the 20inch wheel/tyre combo is.
The D3 gets the same discs and pads - Brembo

I got the chance to talk to one of main people behind the latest diesels and will pass on some of the insights I learned when I can think clearer !

Suffice to say there is c. 1 1/2 years development just on the D3 - as usual ALPINA takes the development very seriously and this isn't just a slot the D5 engine in a 3-Series.

Exhaust different to XD3

The D3 is Euro 6 compliant

Think that is about all I can think of right now !!

Some good pictures and details there. Exhaust different from XD3. I wonder whether it will still be an Akrapovic system? Can't quite make out from the exhaust tips in the You Tube clip Mac linked. I guess there'll be an upload to the Alpina You Tube channel soon enough.

An intriguing car that, look forward to more of your postings.

Yes still akrapovic system changes due to Euro 6 compliance.
