Number 170 at Anglia Car Auctions November 02nd 2019, estimate £7-9k.

Based on the fact this one was offered for sale for 3mths last year at £10k and the difficulties #171 is having finding a new home, I’d say they'll be doing well to hit the bottom guide price
Sad but true Bob.

Spotted on TV

I saw this one on a tv programme called "Speed is the new black", unfortunately only the front part of the car is shown and the picture quality is not great. Looks like a beauty though.

Re: ALPINA Running Costs

Hi Henry, good luck with the work you are carrying out on your B3, it sounds as though it has found an enthusiastic diy owner. I decided to do the servicing and some smaller jobs myself on my B10 a number of years ago as I have always maintained my own cars, and like yourself enjoy doing it. I use t...

Re: B10 OEM windscreen replacement

Some good news at last, Snows of Portsmouth BMW main dealer fitted a new windscreen to my B10 on Friday so the replacement saga is at an end :D. The job looks excellent and I am amazed what a difference a new screen makes to the presentation of my car, and so it should at a cost of £887. I met the B...

Re: Purchased my B10 10 years ago today

Congrats Neal. 10 years already, I remember when you bought your B10 and it shocks me that 10 years have passed by. Mind you it is 17 years of B10 ownership for me in November, time sure does fly. I like your delicate description of the effectiveness of the B10 handbrake on hills, mine is pretty use...

Re: B10 OEM windscreen replacement

A pitiful saga indeed Bob, hopefully to be resolved soon. I am with Hagerty classic insurance Barry, my B10 being insured as a modern classic. Post 1990 cars have up to £1500 worth of glass cover and one can choose where to have repairs carried out. I only went with Autoglass as it was offered as an...

Re: B10 OEM windscreen replacement

The saga continues..... I had visit number 3 from Autoglass a few days ago. The fitter arrived and advised me he had been given the same windscreen as on the previous visit, which was not the correct one then, yippee. He contacted Autoglass technical support and they still insisted it was the correc...

Re: Original Car spec. Information

Have you tried your BMW VIN# in www.mdecoder.com Mark? An interesting link Bob and the first time I have used it. Amongst other things it shows the colour my B10 would have been before getting an upgrade to Alpina Blue :D . Also I now know the day of production. Unfortunately most of the Alpina inf...

Re: wheel lock cover removal tool

Charles, I think Mick is referring to the pull off hook (part 11) as shown in the B10 parts list.

If so then this is Alpina part number 9147 36 13 011

Hope this helps Mick.
