Re: ALPINA at IAA 2019 - WP of B3 Touring

I cant remember seeing shots like that of the cars at the show just before a reveal, I am going back 15 years or more. I guess with everyone having smart phones leaks like this may become a common event which would be sad as said. BTW the Alpina stand at this type of event is brilliant and most frie...

Re: ALPINA at IAA 2019 - WP of B3 Touring

Another recent Alpina B3 Biturbo Touring spy shot from motor1. 0-60 In Under 4 Seconds and 450bhp is what is being touted online. We will find out next week, should be a great car.

Re: Oops!!

Vehicle stopped due to excessively tinted windows?

This looks like a standard factory tint on the rear doors

Re: ALPINA at IAA 2019 - WP of B3 Touring

Really looking forward to seeing the new B3. This shot offers a little bit more detail including the left and right scoops. Cant recall the touring coming out before the saloon for a new generation historically, but it will be a welcome sight in the line up.

No B1 or Front Wheel Drive Vehicles Confirmed

With so many new cars being developed across the range, Alpina have confirmed that they will not be venturing into a B1, X1 or X2 etc over the coming years. Looking at what is stated, there looks to be a cost issue in addition to an official agreement with BMW. https://www.bmwblog.com/2019/08/22/alp...

Big is one word you can say about them
Here's my E30 parked beside one at my local dealers
That front grill is on steroids and the comparison to the one on your E30 an eye opener :shock:

Both of these appear to be blue under the wraps.
Shame they can't stay 'under wraps' :evil:
Possible front and back render of what is "under the wraps" - large springs to mind

Re: Mint Green B7 Anyone

I was *very* close to specifying Java Green when I ordered my B4, In the end, three factors applied. First, an extra £3300 for a paint job seemed a little gratuitous. Second, when I eventually come to sell, while a few will love the colour, another 80% will hate it, so I'm limiting my market. Final...

Re: Anyone else having trouble posting pictures?

I made a few posts recently and managed to get some images up. On my last post in spotted it let me upload 3 out of 7 so I guess it allows for some but not others. I reduced the size to less than 1000 pixels in width and they were all less than 100kb. I am not expert but is this a space issue?
