Hopefully the new Alpina D3 S Touring will sit somewhere between the M340d ("Its faults are negligible") and the B3 ("a palpable genius about the car").
I'm sure it will, will be a fab machine

Re: Winter Wheels

Nice one Paul, they look great. I dropped my tyre pressures down to 2.7 bar all round this weekend and was surprised by how much difference it made to the fully laden/high speed spec Alpina specify. I took it for a run and was reminded by how careful I need to be at this time of year with summers as...

Re: F31 B3S BiTurbo #155

Probably just me, found it very annoying on motorways being overly sensitive and braking too suddenly. Human brains are better at managing the space and making smooth progress in this situation.
Maybe the A road use Guy highlights would have been a better place for it.

Re: Cha, Cha, Cha, Noise

Welcome and sorry to hear this.
I'd call BMW Assist and ask them to investigate, they'll come to you and if it's serious take your car to your local dealership.
As a 2019 car you'll have it sorted by BMW without hassle I'm sure. Good luck, let us know what it is.

Re: E39 B10 V8S

98 for sure, especially on a long run. Running high quality fuel is essential in my book on these finely tuned cars. Apart from the octane requirement, think about the additives and how these will help keep the system clear, especially at this age. For a additional quid it's the only way to go in my...

Re: My G31 B5 Touring has arrived....NOW WITH A FEW PICS!

Looking fantastic

It's a joy cleaning then when they are coated, nothing sticks!

I'm sure you have all the gear to maintain it properly, but I highly recommend carpro reset shampoo, perfect for ceramic coated cars

Enjoy your stunning car

Re: E39 B10 V8/1 #163

Looks like a nice car
Good spot hap, maybe the car had a new bootlid and this spoiler was supplied? Corrosion is common on how they are secured to the lid.
