Further to my recent post in the alpina for sale section I have now prepared an advert for my car
It will initially be on car and classic only.
Here it is.

First registered 31.03.1995

98,706 Miles with a comprehensive service history.

6 Owners including myself.

Full years MOT

I have owned this car since June 2014, during which time I have covered just over 6,000 miles.
The car has been carefully maintained during my ownership, the following is a list of the work I have done.
All four wheels stripped and powder coated, centre caps painted, locks overhauled and rubber seals replaced, new centre decals.
4 Michelin Pilot sport tyres fitted with lots of life left in them.
Gearbox fluid and filter change.
Differential fluid changed
New BMW foam cushion and repair to drivers seat.
New water pump, thermostat, drive belts, viscous coupling, all preventative maintenance.
New radiator, expansion tank.
New aircon pipe and aircon regassed, all working as it should.
At least 3 oil and filter changes.
Fuel filter, air filter, cabin filter.
Brake fluid changes as required, next one will be Feb 2019
Steering fluid changed.
Discs and pads all round (changed by previous owner and covered no more than 7k miles)
Cam and knock sensors replaced at 91010 miles by previous owner.
Vanos overhauled.
New cam cover gasket and cover stripped and painted.
Terraclean earlier this year which gave a noticable improvement in throttle response and fuel economy.
Cobra Cat 1 alrm and imobiliser fitted. The original factory unit stopped working.
Genuine BMW reversing sensors kit fitted. All as factory.
Various trim items replaced.

Interior condition is very good, with a few scuffs to the black plastic trim here and there.
The electric windows and sunroof operate correctly.
Electrically adjustable front seats.
Alpina cloth upholstery all in excellent condition
The original floor mats are present although I keep them stored and fit them if I show the car.
Genuine BMW Radio cassette unit with code.
Recent new windscreen.
First aid kit, tools and warning triangle all present.
3 Spare keys for the wheel covers
2 alarm fobs fully operational
3 keys


The car presents nicely however it is not perfect, there are imperfections on all panels as you would expect from a 22 year old car however there is no rust in any of the usual e36 places. Cills, arches jacking points all good. There is an area of minor bubbling to rear n/s arch which could easily be attended to, about the size of my small finger nail.
Inner arches are all clean and solid.
Front bumper has the usual scuffs on the bottom edge which have been touched in, I do have a second hand front bumper and genuine Alpina splitter that I purchased as spares.

I have a file full of old invoices, MOT certificates and correspondence from previous owners including the original purchase invoice for 42,000 all verifying the cars provenance.

The car will revert to its original registration plate M 523 UNU if sold.

On the last MOT 10.11.17 two advisories were noted.

Slight play to n/s front top mount.
O/s front fog light not working, this will be fixed.

This car is for sale due to a change in my personal circumstances, I had intended to keep this car and carry out further renovation on it but I realise that this is unlikely to happen in the short term and so if a fellow Alpina enthusiast can enjoy the car I will be happy to let it go.

Price 7750.00 or best offer.

I will consider any sensible offer but please come and view the car first.

Lots more pics if required.

Thanks for looking
