BUILT For a new uk race series from no 35 b3 3.3 in black We want to srip it with the ALPINA wide strip In silver or maybe green & blue.
I no some of you will think this is a wast of a good car but when its done i think you will come to like it. ps the wheels are going for 10" Alpina softlines when we can find the right offset.

HA HA so you no who i am .
We just love anything BMW but we dont want to get into the BMW parts game its just to big you need parts from almost every model ever built or you are constantly saying no on the phone ,so M Parts is great for us ,But ALPINA is also something we want top get into .
We built the car from a B3 No 35 So it can Have the ALPINA Decals , its a great advert for us And also it gives us lots of ALPINA bits to sell , We are buying ALPINA cars as fast as we can get them ,and we hope to be the Biggest used ALPINA parts stockist in the uk .

Well I hope you let us all know when that happens... if you publish online parts catalogues and highlight the places where the Alpina engines differ from the BMW donor engines, you'll have people beating a path to your door!

When you do get it on track I would be curious what kind of laps time it sets as it will give me an idea of the performace for the series.

What kind of spec are you running on suspension/ brakes and what kind of BHP etc.
