Re: Alpina’s for sale

Recently I've been thinking about selling my F31, but the biggest issues are the ridiculous cost to change and the fact the the D3 is almost the perfect all rounder. Difficult to justify the 'upgrade'. Hi Matt, I think we were initially looking for an F31 around the same time in 2019. I sold mine e...

Re: B10 V8S Touring

I am a big fan of this too, my favourite colour combo as well, but sadly not at £42k.

Re: G21 B3 Touring Mineral Grey

I love the interior on this, can’t help but think it would look better with silver wheels?

A green G21 B3 also popped up recently with Hairpin Motor Co.

Re: Parts availability

No problem at all, I was originally quoted £352 plus VAT for the head gasket and £57 plus VAT for the inlet manifold gasket. However they ended up being combined on the final invoice and were £574 plus VAT combined. I expect the HG ended up being closer to £500 plus VAT on its own. It’s a bit painfu...

Re: Parts availability

Have you considered trying to source the part from a dealer or part’s supplier in Europe and having it shipped to the UK? FMW tuning might with worth a look? When my B3S was in for a replacement head gasket, the gasket ended up being sourced from a German dealer who shipped it, so I didn’t have to w...

E34 B10 Bi-Turbo No. 376

Coming soon to The Market, online auction platform. It looks like the owner has spent some significant sums with Classic Heroes in recent years. I wonder if it will remain in the UK or head to Europe? https://themarket.bonhams.com/en/listings/bmw-alpina/b10-bi-turbo/b0b82811-a268-4a1a-83ef-cd903e77f...

Re: Winter Solution Assistance

Sorry to hear of the theft, hope you don’t have too much of a battle with the insurers. You could source a set of genuine F3X Alpina wheels in 19’s or 20’s and add winter tyres. The official winter wheel/tyre set up was 19’s for F3X Alpina models. When I had my F31 D3 I chose to fit 18 inch F3X BMW ...

Re: 2014 F31 D3 BT ALPINA Green

That’s the perfect spec for me, apart from the green trim inside, but sadly not at that sort of money. It seems a lot for pre-LCI with 50k miles, but I guess it’s case of find another!

Re: F31 D3 Biturbo #002 for sale

I can vouch for this car as I sold it to Phil back in Jan, I seriously considered buying it back!

Good luck with the sale, hopefully it will find a good home.

E46 B3 Touring Floor Mats

Hi All,

Has anyone ordered new floor mats for their E46 recently? My drivers mat is looking a bit tired and I wondered whether these are still available and whether the drivers mat is separately available or if it is a whole new set?

F30 D3 - Wiltshire

Spotted on the outskirts of Swindon at the weekend, a dark blue LCI saloon with a D3*** plate, it looked really smart.

I think it might have been #237.

Cheers.

Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?

Congratulations, I had a look around this a couple of weeks ago when it was in with BMR, it looked like a really tidy example.

It was nice to see it with no privacy glass, a panoramic roof and lighter colour interior. Really lifts it when compared to black with sunroof.

Cheers.
