Car Details:

33,000 miles, Silver. 6 speed with Lux Pack (additional 3,000 when new) which includes Blue Tooth phone prep with steering wheel controls, cruise control and European 2007 3D sat nav (300 upgrade at BMW), more responsive steering and uprated handling.

This car has every conceivable extra and cost in the region of 45,000 when new! (including 3,000 for the optional hardtop, the stand and cover and another 3000 for the Lux pack).

Huge specification including:
Engine 3.4 litre straight 6, hand built in Germany. This is a non VANOS BMW engine so is more reliable than the M roadster (VANOS is BMW's version of variable valve timing which is renowned for breaking at a staggering cost of 3000+ to repair!!) Manual ZF S6-37 six-speed manual gearbox, developed to Alpina; Alpina build No. 186; FBMWsh and 9,000 until the next service (which is a standard oil service) ABS, Traction control, anti slip control; Airbags; Alarm/immobiliser, Proximity sensors for when the roof is down; Radio/CD and 6CD Changer; Air conditioning, Climate control, Electric heated mirrors, Electric windows, Fog lights, Power assisted steering, Remote central locking; Parking distance control; Cruise Control; Headlight Washers; Auto lights/wipers; BMW Business stereo with excellent sound quality and 6 CD multi changer; On-board computer for trip, MPG, distance, fuel remaining etc etc; Passenger side airbag disable function (unlike a previous 350z so you could never carry a child in the passenger seat!); Reverse parking sensors; Alpina body kit, extended Alpina leather interior (Dash, Centre Console, Door Handles/Trims); Alpina embossed, Heated, electric memory seats with 3 memory settings; Obc; Alpina Multi functioning steering wheel with phone and stereo controls; Dials designed by German designer Borg; 19" ALPINA Dynamic alloys with Front size: 8.5' x 19', 235/35ZR19; Rear size: 9.5' x 19', 265/30ZR19 Michellin Pilot Sport tyres; ALPINA wind deflector; Alpina floor mats; Alpina tax disk holder and even Alpina key ring! Alpina leather document folder containing all service books, brochures; 3 sets of keys, including the service key;

All other normal extras (black electric folding roof with heated glass rear window. BMW Alarm/Immobiliser, Locking wheel nuts).

Additional extras:-
Colour coded hard top with stand and cover Lux Pack.

If you are considering this or an M roadster (as I did), here are a few factors to consider and why I chose the ALPINA over the M:
The Alpina is hand built so is free from all squeaks, rattles and shakes; It is considerably cheaper to buy than a comparable M roadster; M roadsters are often higher mileage as they are available as company cars! Alpina's are pampered by enthusiast owners; It is a lot rare than an M roadster and will retain more value over time; The Alpina has over 2500 changes to the car over a standard Z4, not just the engine but the body styling and the opulent luxury interior, the M roadster inside looks and feels like a standard Z4, the Alpina feels special; An inspection 2 service on any 'M' car is in the thousands. Servicing costs for the Alpina are in line with a standard Z4 (less than half an M service); The M roadster gets a combined fuel economy figure of around 22mpg, the Alpina gets a combined 28mpg and often mid 30's on the motorway! This is a non VANOS BMW engine so is more reliable than the M roadster (VANOS is BMW's version of variable valve timing which is renowned for breaking at a staggering cost of 3000+ to repair!!).

The Roadster S utilises the renowned Alpina 3.4 litre six, hand-built in Buchloe, Germany. Outstanding performance courtesy of the 300bhp available at 6,300rpm and the Roadster S' low kerb weight of 1320kg, together yielding a 0-60mph sprint time of just 5.0 seconds (German tests confirm actually 4.9). Top speed is 169mph without the hardtop, 176mph with. 362Nm (266 lb-ft) of torque is generated at 4800rpm, yet the real key to the Roadster S' breathtaking elasticity is the availability of 90% of maximum torque from 3000rpm to 6500rpm.

Fantastic condition, a much pampered car. The car is regularly 'detailed' and finished off using high grade Brazilian Carnuba wax for a hard protective finish.

I looked at as many as I could before this one (still, there were only 3 available nationwide!) and this one is by far the cleanest and most looked after. This is my second Alpina roadster, I love them so much i bought a second one (previous was number 068 on an 04 reg)

My reason for considering a sale is that I simply do not use so I am going to either buy an Alfa GT Blackline to get to work and back, or treat myself to either a Maserati Gransport or SLK 55 AMG, for occasional days out (also has an auto box for sitting in motorway traffic!!).

I have done a national search and have looked at Sytners etc and with the mileage and condition, they seem to be going for 20-21k, so with the additional 3,000 hardtop, stand and cover I would be looking at selling privately around the 20,500 mark, which seems more than fair. There are a few at the 18k - 19k mark, but they are older, higher mileage, not in the same colour (best combination)or are without Lux pack or/and hardtop.

I am in no rush to sell, especially in the current market, so no silly offers please. Any questions just ask.

More photos to follow when we get good weather!

No timewasters, chit-chatters or tyre kickers please, only genuine enquiries.
Thanks
Rob
