The last F31 B3S

Post by Dans » Sun Nov 03, 2019 1:42 am

I’ve finally got my paws on my new car. It’s a B3S Touring that’s going to fill the Alpina-shaped hole left by the B5 and the D3. It was a cancelled order, it’s got a huge spec and so far I love it!

That's a lovely looking F31. Just about perfect from my perspective.

That's lovely, what a machine. Did the D3 go via a dealer or did the auction work out?

It was already up to more than I could pay, but I'm glad it went for more as its means the one I have is still worth something!
