Re: ALPINA at IAA 2019 - WP of B3 Touring

It isn’t the 1st or 2nd even S engine. The 1st was the S70 used in the E31 B12 and the 3rd was, if you include all the B3 engines based in the North American market with the E36 M3 S5x engine.

Re: ALPINA at IAA 2019 - WP of B3 Touring

Looking at a close up they look like cheap replica’s. Don’t like how far the casting comes in on the spokes. Just my opinion of course but they seem to have lost their delicacy and precision somewhat.

Re: ALPINA at IAA 2019 - WP of B3 Touring

The dynamics used on this new model are of a different design to the B6. The spokes are flush with the rims which make them look somewhat awkward. Mine are deep dishes which seems to suit the design better imho.

Re: Oops!!

There is no law for tinting of rear side windows, just front side windows and windscreen. The front windows seem like standard factory tint at most to me!

Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?

Finally got all my springs and dampers replaced all around along with some bushes and also had my A/C refilled. Not a cheap day but worthwhile.

Re: E60 B5 #xx1 - Cheap!

It looks like it may need new headlights and tail lights also if the surface has been damaged too much by the paint stripper. Not sure what the seller means by refurbished S/C and it is the older style S/C. How much for a quality respray, new lights al around and S/C history to be checked thoroughly...

Re: E60 B5 S - off throttle noise

I have a B6s with similar mileage with a younger supercharger and it doesn’t sound like that. Have you checked for free movement of the valve in front of the supercharger or for fault codes recorded? Also what is the centrifugal clutch pad depths like on the supercharger, probably not this bur wor...
