Following on from my last D3 BT being written off, a short flight from Glasgow to Luton and a bus to Northampton, I picked this up



Registered 2012,finished in Crimson red with auto gearbox. Think I prefer the manual version though.

I've had the lights ( angel eyes, dipped and full) upgraded to LED and coded to daytime running.
6 cylinder front kidney grills fitted too.
Nav upgraded with 2017 maps
New wheel cap emblems fitted
Still to apply a new front splitter decal as the current one needs replacing.
Bonnet re-painted too as there a few stone chip too many for my liking

Crimson red was not my first choice of colour but it is slowly growing on me.

Pete

I hope that should read ' I had 372' and not 'have' or else we have a problem (well the BMW dealer who sold me it will have) as mine is #372!

Hi Pete,

I am becoming even more of a saddo by trawling the for sale ads and keeping tabs on everything for sale. I don't have any info other than when the car came up for sale at the back end of last year.

No worries, I thought from the wording of your post that you had owned the car at one point.

No sadly not, although I love red, SWMBO would never let me have a red car.

I don't think I have had an Alpina since 2009 Sad

Was de-badged when I bought it.

However, the BMW dealer agreed to fit both badges when I negotiated the deal. The 'Alpina' was fitted upon collection with the 'd3BT' on back order

Unfortunately the dealer just stuck the 'Alpina' badge on without reference and stupidly positioned it about 4/5 inches out which I was unhappy about.
Eventually he agreed to order a 2nd 'Alpina' badge so that was 3 in total.

Think the dealer might pay the full price as he moaned that they were 128 each
