Yum yum!

Who orders these special cars then sells on with effectively zero use?

I’m pretty sure this was built for the purpose of being a demo vehicle Synther Notts but I’m happy to be proved wrong.

Interesting, but why would they then not sell it through the network at Sytner? It's a very rare and special car, and latests S spec.

Agree Bramley one is even nicer - the spec on that car is epic. It's also under offer according to their site.

Are there figures on how many RHD F30 tourings were produced?

I assume there will be a high depreciation to stomach over the next few years?

It does seem a little weird that some would’ve spec’d it from new only to sell it the moment it touched their hands because, effectively, anyone that buys this would likely be the 2nd (or possibly 3rd) owner on a car with less than 100miles on its clock.
If it was a saloon I’d be tempted myself although I’m intrigued as to why the Bramley car is considered “nicer”?

Yes agree, plus I've not seen a B3S being sold by Sytner yet, so a very new and rare car.

http://www.bramley.com/carsales/details/BMW/Alpina-B3-BiTurbo-/12711.htm

Bramley car is to my eye a nicer colour combo - but I know you don't like light interiors, so each to their own!
Spec is perfect too on the Bramley car, prefer no privacy glass and rear window blinds for example.
Both however are great cars and this one is a S so even better performance.

it has the alpina vent guage - proper alpinas have these! rear door blinds, heated rear seats plus steering wheel. Alpina floor matts edged with lavalina, alpina boot matt.

They are very similar but i'd prefer the lighter trim if its less practical in a touring than black. It was cheaper also with 1800 miles on the clock. Just means 4 petrol tourings sold now of these i think

Can these be retro fitted?
I've been thinking about this for my Tourer, but couldn't find anything on them

I prefer the Bramley car but would prefer light carpets and headlining to go with it, as well as the light coloured leather.

It needs some stripes too! Gold ones, preferably
