E46 B3 front number plate holder

Does anyone have a part number for a front number plate holder for a facelift (2001) E46 B3 Touring please?

I ordered one for the standard touring but it doesn’t have a good fit.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Alpina C2 2.7 #515 Restoration

Hap, I was referring to MA stamp on the engine. I checked out the rest of the numbers during the purchase to ensure it all the matched up. I think Simon13 mentioned here that the RHD Alpina used Janspeed mild steel six branch manifold . This six branch came with the car but the rest of the exhaust w...

Re: Alpina C2 2.7 #515 Restoration

I wouldn’t say it’s cheap, especially for a 16 year old car with 160k miles. Couple of people wanted to video call to see/hear the car before viewing. Selling to someone abroad just seems risky.

I had a fair bit of interest and offers (especially from aboard) but not sold. It didn't help as I was in France. Still not sure about selling it and will try using it more over winter.

It is my car and its not being used hence the sale. The mileage is genuine 159k (almost 160k) with full history.

It will be a shame if the car is broken for parts as its a nice colour combo. If it was a lower mileage then there would have been more interest in restoring?

I was tempted but storage and getting people to work on the car is not easy. It will be interesting to see what price it sold for.

Good to see Elan Are you going to restripe and add the side skirts as it was ? I think looks loads better without stripes but to keep original would need the side skirts The badges on the front grill and boot is adequate for me so wasn’t planning on adding the stripes, at least not just yet. I ha...

The car is slowly getting there, a few delays as with most restoration.

I have been a bit slow with the updates due to work and life :roll:
