Alpina D3s Detailed With 3 Year Ceramic Coating

Back in August I had a single stage enhancement detail on the G20 D3s. Also had a 3 year ceramic coating, engine bay detail and Interior deep clean. Three short reels on Instagram and you should be able to view the links if not logged in. It will be interesting to see how it looks after one year of ...

Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?

Managed to get more on the outside temperature reading than the mpg reading for the first time ever averaging 38mpg over 20k. Was too hot to post yesterday so did it today instead. I dont think the dash will report 42.5°C too often again in the UK, but may be common in some parts of the world no dou...

ALPINA B4 S Edition 99 #68

On a roll with rare Alpina cars at the moment in the UK with the recent Z1, B3 GT3 and now the B4S Edition 99. Watch your blue jeans on the white leather on this one for blue rub off. Looks beautiful though inside. Debadged now but I was sure that this was the one where someone had put a "318i" badg...

Suspect the price is rather high for a LHD with 100k+ miles, Sytner were asking considerably less for #031 which had 25k miles back in April apparently
Would agree with this one Bob.

I’d stump up a bit more and buy the B3 saloon instead @ 32k with some wiggle room….that one we know more about
I thought you would say something like that Hap being a B3 owner! I may be tempted one day :D

Re: Planning on buying a D3. Some advice needed please

I just discovered an MOT fail last September for exposed cords on both front tyres, and advisories for May this year for front discs worn or scored or pitted, and one front wheel slightly distorted - but this info is from an internet search site so I don't know how reliable this is. I assume the MO...

Re: Z1 LE Alpina number 04/66 good wood auction

This is a great Alpina story and sums up what it was all about over 30 years ago. A one of a kind in the UK so valuation will always be an interesting element.

And number three appears for sale ... I fear the valuation is a little out there though!

I know prices have been on the increase as a general statement but £45k is a big shock for this one.

Busted Alpina Supra

Someone having a bit of artistic fun on an Alpina Toyota Supra which shares a lot of components with the BMW Z4 both sharing the same BMW platform https://www.hotcars.com/alpinas-toyota-supra-gr/

Just for fun and I wonder if Alpina may return to the Roadster fold as part of the BMW/Alpina tie up

Re: B3/D3 updates

LCI cars are on the Alpina website - B3 now has 495hp and 730Nm, D3 engine looks unchanged. B3 looks impressive with 0-60 in 3.6 seconds. The D3S is the same as the pre facelift version so no changes on power outputs and not much of a change in the full life cycle for the G20/G21 generation for the...

Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?

Changed all four tyres on the D3S so they did 19,000 miles from new and were well shot. Alternatives were hard to come by so Pirelli P-Zero "ALP" was the only option.

All good Hap, looking forward to seeing images of the event. I will bring my 1 of 1 UK supplied Alpina vehicle(s) with me (I think that is still the case) and we will catch up at a future meet.

Re: Dirty alpina thread

Looking very smart Hap. Silver is a great colour for not getting a regular clean
