This one is back up for auction after 6mths. Wonder if the oil light is more of a problem that just an MOT advisory?

i'll say it again, the oil light on at idle is NOT a common problem! Engine is fucked is more like it.

How is it at 4k?!

Besides "the oil light being on is common" this is a good bit as well "I can provide a complimentary battery if it goes for the right price" Lucky buyer!

Hi all,

I'm collecting this tomorrow and bringing my own battery :lol:

The old girl will be back to full health soon. I'll create a build thread and keep you guys updated. Always wanted an Alpina to compliment my M collection and what's better than a Alpina B3 3.2!!

Cheers, Doc.

Thank you chaps.

Looking forward to wrenching on it.

First thing is to make sure that engine is healthy, identify what needs replacing and take it from there.
