Welcome to Alpina ownership and the forum. The D3 images look very impressive.
You will certainly enjoy the driving in your D3 and the more miles the bigger the grin. :D

Thanks for the kind words.

I've just had mud guards front and rear installed yesterday and i must say I'm really pleased with the finish. In my opinion they don't look out of place on the car with and the finish is subtle yet effective - practical too :lol:

Try as i may the picture upload facility isn't working for me yesterday or today to show you guys the finish.. :x

Ill keep trying :?
