Much more likely to be the mounts in the diff, or worse the rear subframe mounts have sheared from the chassis, causing the entire subframe to flex..

If your car has already had these fixed then the transmission mounts or center support bearing maybe the culprit..

HTH,

Could be the hydraulic valve lifters also.. Part no 11337548690. Mine were replaced under warranty by the dealer and they are noisey again, common problem, with no ill effects as I have been told..

Switchtronic?

Broken flywheel could be the culprit, Alpina has an upgraded part available..

Order them directly at BMW Den Haag in the Netherlands and avoid the Sytner mark up.. j.vrijn@bmwdh.nl Don't give your BMW dealer the BMW VIN as they will just order the 328/330 parts.. Give your Alpina VIN to the parts guy at BMW Den Haag and you will get the springs that go with your car, i.e. tak...

Alpina completely redesigned the air intake for the 3.4 engine with a special airbox, intake tube, et cetera.

Doesn't make any sense to try and change that, let alone improve on it..

On the German Alpina forum the problems with the fuel injection keep on popping up. You can go fully original, but have a car that doesn't drive optimally and is prone to failure. Knowledge is scarce and not all parts are avalable any longer. You can go for an aftermarket ignition system and prevent...

Please also bear in mind that the Alpina parts catalog offers different shocks front and rear depending on the model and options in the car...

Same goes for the springs front and rear. Touring uses different ones from the convertible, limo and coupe..
