E30 B6 3.5 #029

Could it be this one? Gets spotted around North London quite often.

Only the B6 3.5S was based on the M3, the regular B6 3.5 was on a standard E30 shell.

CaesarBob,

You are correct, my car is B3s Biturbo build no. 463, plus I've just checked under the bonnet and the label says 'Blue Hera Mica Metal'.
You live and learn every day, I'm astounded :oops:
Good to know, and cool that you do have a bona fida individual colour 😎

Re: Wanted: LCI F11 D5 Touring

If it has to be LCI, then yes, a Japanese import may be an option. Otherwise, there were 11 pre-LCI UK cars so a few more to go at.

Re: Alpina Blue or Green

I suppose it begs the question of why so few in Green were specified from new compared to Blue ? It is curious why so many ALPINA fans apparently prefer the Green but for those who are actually able to spec a car from new, it isn’t the top choice. It’s also odd that for UK cars, the F31 B3 & B3S’ g...

Think Green personally.

Always think a car looks great in dark green - not quite the same as Lime green in the BL days.

I’ve a PURPLE Dolomite Sprint 😄
Totally O/T but I love some of the 70’s BL colours: Magenta, Java Green, Tahiti Blue, Russet Brown :mrgreen:

Re: Alpina Blue or Green

CaeserBob, The build sheet says it's 'Alpina Blue Metallic' which is an extra. All I know is in certain lights it does 'sparkle' a bit and is different from the BMW blues. When clean and polished it looks terrific, but then its mine and I'm biased. :D :D As previous, if I was buying a new Alpina th...

Re: Purple E46 B3S

Looks like the one! I'm popping past the same garage today, I'll see if the reg matches up! Is it for sale? Not seen any adverts recently for it. It is not Purple but Mora, latin american Blackberry :D Stunning. That’s a bit pedantic Brian :lol: It’s definitely in the accepted purpley spectrum of c...

Re: BMW ALPINA DIESEL SALOON D5 3.0 Bi Turbo 4dr

In reality though, the images omit most of the areas highlighted in the auction. Only bonnet and wing mirrors can be seen and that is not close up. The drivers front door card hole, scuffed dashboard and adhesive residue marks could still be present.
