B3 S BiTurbo #208 up for sale

Hi all, noticed that #208 is up for sale at Car Barn: https://www.carbarn.co.uk/cars-for-sale/bmw/alpina-b3s/car2576 (alongside a D5 touring - but diesel is not on my shopping list at the moment) The Archive notes that this is the only B3 BiTurbo in Carbon Black, which is a nice touch - even if blac...

Congratulations!!

What Spec have you gone for?

+1 on the ghost (or technically ghost II :wink: ) - I have this on my current 1 series and would definitely do so again! (if only for piece of mind)

Re: Buying a diesel Alpina

All this talk (and action tbf) of HFC and HICE is genuinely exciting and I look forward to it becoming a reality - I enjoyed Harry Metcalfe's video on JCB's development work a while ago. If it continues to move at a decent pace I may well be in a position to take the plunge in 10 years and switch aw...

Not sure when the inevitable hosepipe ban will start, so gave mine a wash. Always scrubs up nicely :)
That looks absolutely top! Nice job :D

Re: Real or???

I will admit I don't recall seeing a blue badge on the vehicle, but as i had bags of shopping to contend with, i wasn't really looking for one. Just noticed the badge on the steering wheel of of the corner of my eye, and wondered. However I do totally agree that if you park in a disabled space when ...

Real or???

Speed this morning at my local Morrisons, looks very tidy but not sure if it's real - can anyone shed any light?

Apologies for the awful camera work!! :lol:

Holy smokes! The bottom of my stomach fell out reading that, goodness knows what would've happened if I'd been in your shoes! :oops: Not being mechanically minded - I would've smelt a rat if the car was running fine - then the dealership changed the oil - then a problem arose and the same dealership...

Re: New Member Hi...

I have been going back and forth on whether the 20's are worth the £2080... at £3,420 the same wheels in Anthracite are not justifiable to me... That seems bonkers. If I was that keen on anthracite but wanting to save money I’d probably get the silver wheels and get Lepsons to refinish them; they c...

Re: New Member Hi...

Thanks bud. All I know is that cars with the spoiler don’t have it but I don’t know if that’s because the spoiler fixes an inherent airflow turbulence issue or if it’s particular to my car. I’ve had a good look and I can’t see any issue with panel alignment or seals. I’m not inclined to risk the de...
