Just thought I'd introduce myself as I'm new to Alpina ownership.
I've recently purchased an F30 D3BT (number 237) in a gorgeous blue hue.
I'm already sold on the philosophy of the brand compared to 'normal' BMWs Very Happy

Welcome aboard. I am myself only some 15 months into Alpina ownership and what I can say is the whole experience simply gets better by the day.

I'll happily post up some picture once I've figured out how to resize them as, apparently, they're too big!!

Asides from the obvious 20" classic alloys it's also equipped with HUD (which is unexpectedly useful) full extended black marino leather interior and HK surround sound system Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

You're kidding, aren't you? Those photos were taken the day it'd been delivered from a dealership in Leeds so the wheels look in a bit of a state!!. I bought it blindly based upon its description on AT which, thankfully, paid off!!
Just out of interest does anyone know when there'll be B3/4s demonstrator available in the country as my business partner is slowly being converted to the fold but is also a diehard petrolhead.

Noooo... I'm from the Brentwood area of Essex but bought the car from Lawton Brooks in Harrogate which is near-ish(?) to Leeds.
Am I being naive or something but is there a specific reason that the B3/4s hasn't being reviewed by anyone?
