Generally speaking, diesel Alpina's are not selling quickly at the moment. I would be cautious about the potential to move it on quickly, unless you are trading it in and then it's a gamble what you will be offered.

There are currently 2 x F25's, 3 x F25 LCI's and 3 x G01's (all these are new/nearly new at Sytner) that I know of for sale.

Couple of examples:
XD3 BITURBO [F25 LCI] #215 Space Grey/Black Nevada Leather; 2014_64; £27.5k; 57k; Trade
- This has been on & off for sale since Nov-18: started as private sale at £36.5k, disappeared until Apr-19, when Trader in Bradford offered it for £38k until Sep-19, disappeared until Dec-19 when Sytner Tamworth started it at £30k, dropping to current £27.5k. Mileage rose from 54k to 57k whilst in the trade.

XD3 BITURBO [F25 LCI] #240 Alpine White III/Black Dakota Leather; 2014_64; £25.0k; 84k; Trade
- Started Mar-19 when Sytner Notts offered it at £33k for 2mths before auctioning it and selling for £23.2k. Then appeared with current dealer in May-19, starting a £29k and slowly falling to current £25k as of late Dec-19. Mileage rose from 76k to 85k since Sytner's auction.

Both of these have apparently been used whilst on sale although, where disclosed, the number of keepers hasn't increased.

I've been considering one of these for a while, as something different. I watched the Joe Achilles video on You Tube about them and it caught my attention. It was interesting to read they might be difficult to move and as I keep seeing the same cars popping up on Auto Trader. Thanks to Bob for posting the info on #240 as that is one of them. It was advertised late Jan21 at £23,950 at about 98k and it's just been re-advertised by the same seller at £22,995 with 99k on. It's not the ideal spec for me as it hasn't got a sunroof but it does look a generally tidy car. There's not many to choose from.

Do it, the D3 just makes you laugh with its power delivery so should be equally as much fun sat higher up!!
