Re: What did you do in your ALPINA today?

Removed front and rear number plates from my B3 3.3. They were 'Bobs motor factors' or similar and didn't suit the car. I removed them carefully and spent a good three hours scraping the years of black double sided tape off. WD40 works well, but needs time to soak. I found a BMW/ Alpina Bar code beh...

Re: Reg Plates: Retro Designs

Good point - Last time i took the wife we were engulfed in smoke, oil leaking onto the exhaust was pushed into the car. BMR fixed this, but i think the missus is still seething after the suspension refresh!

Re: Reg Plates: Retro Designs

My plate arrived from Retro Plates today. I bit the bullet and went for the £60 option as they are period correct as Hap said. Don't tell my wife as she is a little upset about my spending at the moment. I will add to the car once the weather is a little warmer together with my ALPINA lettering to t...

That is lovely. I would love this as I also have a Viola metallic boxster - similar colour.

Re: That's a very very big number

A fantastic achievement Charles and a real indication of just how passionate you are about your car. Is that 350k miles, you have driven as I recall you bought new from BMW Canary Warf?

Oh and I can confirm that its putting out 300bhp as when you kindly drove me in it, it was fast!!

2011 D3 Bi-Turbo #192 - on new Auction site

Seems to be all the rage - automotive auction sites. Another new one opens tomorrow and there is already a Alpina car ready for sale. Looks a nice example in white, coupe form.

Re: C95 Softline Centre Cap shocker

I had the same problems with my car. The previous owner had the wheels refurbished and they added too much laquer on the wheel and hence the caps would not fit. I had them refurbished again and this time they fit. As for the keys, find an old school cobbler, Timpsons are useless IMHO. I found an old...

Re: Selling my Alpina B3 Tourer 2002

Adam, Now you have got me started.

How about an E46 M3 Touring. A few have been built, some better than others.

Re: Selling my Alpina B3 Tourer 2002

Controversial, i know - but the touring shape is very nice - better looking than the saloon and coupe, IMO.

Re: Reg Plates: Retro Designs

Looks good. I have just been in touch. He is asking £60 up front and then some design proofs to review and approve prior to print.

£60 for a pair of plates is madness, but does give you UK legal plates with the sytner logo.....

I need to do my man maths to prove that this is worth doing......

Re: Maserati Gransport content

Very nice! I have longed after these for a while especially with the boomerang rear lights - bliss. But i understand that the US market didnt permit these, so they had the more 'normal' looking rear light clusters. I would be spoilt for choice with both of those in my stable. I have a Boxster S and ...

The lockdown has meant that I have driven less than 100 miles since the start of lockdown, with the only exception being the trip to BMR and back. When i drive the car, i care nothing of M3s, Lamborghinis, McLarens - Its about...
