Re: Badges

Now that I’ve got my car back I need to put the badges back on the boot lid, is there any particular rules or measurements I need to follow. Before taking any off use a 12 inch rule on the top of the badges taking a photograph as a point of reference for spacing. Putting the old ones back on can be...

Re: F30 D3

Maybe upload some images of the rear with the issue shown. Mine has nearly 60K on it and looks okay the pipe insides are clean as a general statement and the Akrapovic chrome does not get soot on it.

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...

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

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
