My mistake then Brian. For some reason I thought vehicles over 10 years old were VAT exempt. Nope - it will be minus 8% (CH vat), plus 20% and duties Still much cheaper than the unicorn!! You could add in a B3S X coupe - with bi-colour lavalina for another 30k - www.autoscout24.ch/5237604 And then ...

Is the D3 Mono not based on the M47 unit? And therefore not covered by the known issue - Alpina Archive page It looks like (from wiki.de) that the D3 has the following: Der D3 besitzt die Injektoren des 535d (genauer: E6X, M57NTOP, 306D4); des Weiteren wurde der Turbolader durch einen Garrett GTB175...

E46 prices are on the rise over - so perhaps the dealer has referenced Swiss prices!!

It looks fairly tidy.

A manual S would be rather nice.

Did you give them both chassis numbers? BMW and Alpina one?

At some point somebody went to the effort of trying to make it look like an Alpina.

That was much cheaper than expected!!

My bill is 590chf - that covers pretty much every fluid in the car.

The warranty bill is 8,200chf - and includes a new water pump and air-con condenser

Labour was around half that amount. If anyone really wants the itemized bill I'll get it scanned.

I used to own a B3X BiTurbo Coupe and a Roadster S - so although the E46 doesn't appear in that selection there is some relevance. In terms of engine appeal the Roadster S wins hands down - it sounded epic and gave the car a far more aggressive feel than the BiTurbo unit in the B3. The best way of d...

Lovely colour combination - and 1 owner.

Probably cheaper to maintain than some that crop up for sale

I paid 2,000chf (give or take) for a fully comp warranty. The expected bill from my claim is around the 12,000chf mark

Mostly labour charges.

Divide the warranty by the main dealer labour rate - and then make a judgement call!

F10 B/D5 - Hochenheimring - 24th May 2017

No pictures - but a dirty looking dark blue, Stuttgart plated F10. Looked very smart in the paddock. Wasn't being used on track.
