It's been bouncing around eBay for a while, most recently at £18k.

The climate seats are a nice extra but otherwise it's pretty basic and Doom Blue over Black is fairly uninspiring. I'd be surprised to see it make over the bottom guide price.

This one only made £12.7k at auction.

B5 [E60] #280 Monaco Blue/Black Dakota Leather; 2006_56; £12.7k; 111k; Auction

Have seen it suggested that an E60 B5 is worth up to £10k in Alpina-specific parts, so this must mean these are approaching the bottom of the market.

Can you share source for the suggestion? Just curious.

Also when using the term "the market" can you define that too - to help?

I noted that prices seem to be all over the place on mobile.de:

Makes it pretty difficult to form a proper judgement in my view! UK RHD cars seem like real bargains (generally speaking) compared to LHD models - it seem, but then again our genuine Alpina parts costs via UK official sources are considerably higher :(

The comment about the parts value of a B5 was made by the chap who owns the Malachite B5, in one of the FB groups, in reference to a discussion about #305 & #365 which is still for sale at £12k. It may be slightly different as #365 is an LCI version and the overall spec of a car will impact the value too.

My comment about "the market" was a reference to the fact that once vehicles start to reach a point where they are worth a similar value in parts to a running driving car, then values are unlikely to fall much further. It could also tempt some European buyers to purchase them as parts cars. I know they're older, but there have been a few E46's bought here and taken back to Europe for breaking.

I don't follow European values particularly, but from conversations I have had, there is quite often a difference between UK (RHD) cars and European (LHD). I would be wary of trying to use LHD prices as a benchmark to values here, even if there wasn't such a variance in values.
