Re: E46 Coupe B3 S #094

No I don’t think it’s done many at all. It got trailered away from me.

Re: E46 Coupe B3 S #094

This is my old car. I recommissioned it. It is absolutely stunning inside and out. It would be great to see it being used and enjoyed.

Re: 2011 B5 Bi Turbo for sale

I Drive past it every day to work its about half a mile from me. It was left in the same spot on their lot for a very long time but now it looks to have been moved and given a good clean and actually looks quite a nice car. I have only seen it from 20 feet though!!

Re: Sytner F30 D3 BT

Quite possibly, I would only see them offering over £23k if another car was involved in the deal.

Re: Sytner F30 D3 BT

I offered him £22k for it and was turned down so it must have been more than that.

Just thought I would add to this. I bought discs and pads all round for my B3 from Daniel. He was extremely helpful and very efficient. He managed to save me around 30% on what I had been quoted from another dealer. If you have any parts needed give him a shout. Thanks again Norrie for putting it fo...

I have to say my B3 is a rather firm ride when it hits a bump and it can feel like the damping isn’t quick enough to respond to the bumps. I have had it checked out at my specialists and main dealer and they have found no faults. I then went out in a friends 335i with the same size rim and profile...

Yes it has really finished it off. The colour choices on the B3’s are limited. As they are all black, grey or white. I am always a fan of the full stripes and the car was crying out for it as it was a very subtle spec. Added to this the new genuine brakes all round, the service, the wheel refurb a...

Fitting a stripe kit

I have just bought a full stripe kit for my B3 and considering who to fit it. Having never fitted one before I thought I would ask if anyone has experience of fitting it themselves. From looking at the kit it does look rather tricky! I have contacted a local car window tinting and sign writing busin...

F30 B3 and D3 brakes

Hi I was wondering if anyone has had to replace their brakes on their F30 Alpina? I am trying to locate the best place to purchase them but can’t find them. I thought they were standard 335i discs and pads but it seems the pads are alpina specific and being quoted £300+ for new front pads! Just a...

Thanks Phil, I will try both of those.

Does anyone know roughly the prices of the sets that Simon does. I have sent a PM but haven’t heard anything. Feel free to PM

Don’t mind waiting if there is saving and would like to support a forum member.

Thanks James
