2011 D3 Bi-Turbo #192 - on new Auction site

Seems to be all the rage - automotive auction sites. Another new one opens tomorrow and there is already a Alpina car ready for sale. Looks a nice example in white, coupe form.

Re: C95 Softline Centre Cap shocker

I had the same problems with my car. The previous owner had the wheels refurbished and they added too much laquer on the wheel and hence the caps would not fit. I had them refurbished again and this time they fit. As for the keys, find an old school cobbler, Timpsons are useless IMHO. I found an old...

Re: Selling my Alpina B3 Tourer 2002

Adam, Now you have got me started.

How about an E46 M3 Touring. A few have been built, some better than others.

Re: Selling my Alpina B3 Tourer 2002

Controversial, i know - but the touring shape is very nice - better looking than the saloon and coupe, IMO.

Re: Reg Plates: Retro Designs

Looks good. I have just been in touch. He is asking £60 up front and then some design proofs to review and approve prior to print.

£60 for a pair of plates is madness, but does give you UK legal plates with the sytner logo.....

I need to do my man maths to prove that this is worth doing......

Re: Maserati Gransport content

Very nice! I have longed after these for a while especially with the boomerang rear lights - bliss. But i understand that the US market didnt permit these, so they had the more 'normal' looking rear light clusters. I would be spoilt for choice with both of those in my stable. I have a Boxster S and ...

The lockdown has meant that I have driven less than 100 miles since the start of lockdown, with the only exception being the trip to BMR and back. When i drive the car, i care nothing of M3s, Lamborghinis, McLarens - Its about...

Educate me please....

Ok, I know that the Alpina brand is special with a limited run of rare cars. However, I was reading the Pistonheads E46 M3 report and noted that the equivalent of my car has 343 bhp with a n/a 3.2 litre engine. Now i was under the impression that the B3 was the thinking mans M3, basically a luxury M...

Re: Cold Start Up Problem and Cog of Death - Alpina E46 B3.3 2002

Wow. Thanks for the update. This makes for grizzly reading, but at least you are making progress. Keep going and I assure you that it will be worth it. During lockdown, i have been thinking of downsizing fun fun fleet to a single car, but when i do drive the Alpina, even for a short journey, I confi...
