D3 Bi-Turbo

Post by Bstobbart » Tue Oct 12, 2021 8:07 pm

Hi unfortunately due to a company car on order I am going to have to put my D3 BI-Turbo up for sale. It’s just had a service and had to new rear tyres put on the rear it’s a switch-tronic Lux pack and has covered 102k it’s black metallic and has had black kidney grill, red mirrors and decals fitted by sytner as some sort of black edition.

It’s all on the Alpina register number 457

The car has had a new DPF fitted under BMW warranty last year and it has an MOT til Aug 2022

I am based in the North West and I don’t mind driving half way to meet somebody if they are seriously interested!

Any questions just ask or messsge me and I will give you my number to Chat.

Thanks for looking

.... black metallic and has had black kidney grill, red mirrors and decals fitted by sytner as some sort of black edition.

I recollect seeing this when it was new: a 'Matt Stripling special' rather than a 'black edition' (which I had, #097, and I think those are also MS specials). He had a vision of creating some offbeat and different colour combinations and graphics on E9x in particular at the time, including a white E90 D3BT with old school Alpina blue and green 'block graphics'.

The red pinstripes may not appeal to all, but they can be removed if desired.

The silver and white cars I could happily get along with and being vinyl the graphics can be easily removed if one's mood changed.

The others not so much, but that's a personal thing as I don't like black cars in general.

Only worry if it starts hesitating from a stand still and junctions when you try and make a gap also might depend on manual or switch-tropic mines a switch-tropic

"creations" :lol:

I may be wrong here as I saw a few of these back in the day, but I THINK he used red lettering on the boot of the white one.....in the flesh, it was quite challenging: very bold. The car sold in past 12 month as I recollect seeing it pop up on one of the usual selling formats.
