Re: the last F31 B3S

Would have been top of my wish list not so long ago. I think new it was maybe low 80s? I’m jumping the BMW ship. Monday I hope to get a new (used) Volvo XC90 delivered. Change of tack, I hope it turns out well. It was £82199. I actually placed a deposit on this car in 2019 before Dan bought it. I w...

Re: D3s

What a boring colour combo.

Re: Well feast your eyes on this lunacy! 6-1-19 tinker

Mark is not a good passenger lol! It’s been a great collective effort at BMR performance to get this up and running for Simon. Lots of time spent going through 525i non EML and 535i EML wiring diagrams, working out parts that were either wrong or missing altogether. A few more electrical niggles to ...

Not a fan of grey interiors at all! two of my E46 Alpinas have been individual, B3S convertible was Atlantis blue with Ecru Alcantata and the B3 3.3 Salo...

Re: E46 B3 S CABRIO #034 - Atlantis Blue

Having converted both a B3 3.3 and a B3S to manual i can hand on heart say it transforms the car.

I would like to covert an E39 B10 V8 or V8S at some point!

Re: E46 B3 S CABRIO #034 - Atlantis Blue

Poor car!

It seems to have down hill since I saved it in 2009.

I still have all the pics from my time with it including some of the rebuild.

I only just noticed that it is LHD
Is this so you can rag the arse off it around Europe on holiday jaunts?

You are a brave man to have opened the sunroof
Great progress as always
It's LHD as a RHD Biturbo is an impossibility.

Re: Lovely B10 V8 - Red

Where does it leave this red Alpina then With an engine rebuild with half BMW and half Alpina and no mahl pistons is it still a B10 V8? albeit with lost provenance It’s still a fantastic looking car with a great interior. If the price was right considering the work that has taken place, it could st...

Replacement of the cam cover revealed very clean engine internals which was a pleasant surprise given the mileage. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50055280161_0cd607862f_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50055601222_52cb6a2ca9_c.jpg A set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4 in the correct 225/40/1...
