SOLD - Alpina Roadster S Lux

Post by Number5 » Sat Feb 27, 2021 9:59 pm

Although I vowed that I'd never sell it, the time has come to part company with my beloved Alpina Roadster S Lux, build #019 that I've owned since 2015

The reason for sale is that toward the end of last year, I had the opportunity to pick up an identical car with sub 50k miles on and it was too good an opportunity to miss. Now that lock-down is about to ease and I am happy with the replacement, I am ready to sell #019


Forum members will probably be familiar with my Alpina as its been featured in many posts on here together with wining a number of the monthly photo competitions on the Z4-Forum , It was slightly modified with customised headlights and clear side repeaters when I first got it but I've recently reverted it all back to original factory spec including the original grilles (all bar the third brake light which would normally be red and a stubby aerial, which aids using the dust cover)

The car is fully loaded with all of the usual E85 Top spec items including:-
- Xenon Headlights
- Heated Sports Seats
- 6 Stack CD
- Pop up Sat Nav
- Rear Parking Sensors

In addition it has the usual Alpina enhancements like:-
- 3.4L Six Cylinder Hand built B3S engine
- Alpina Body Styling Front & Rear
- Alpina Embossed Sport Seats
- Purple Borg Clock/Dials
- Leather Dash and console with green/blue Alpina Stitching
- Matching stitched Grab Handles
- Alpina Stainless Exhaust system
- Alpina badged Wind Deflector

The Car is also sat slightly lower than standard (30mm) on a Bilstein B12 Sports suspension kit completely refurbished only 15k miles back and provides superb handling. The Roof motor was replaced in 2018 and relocated to the boot

Within my ownership, I've had the wheels have been refurbished and are all fitted with Goodyear F1 tyres, all showing about 4mm+. The car has been garage stored at all times when not in use and any required work done, including an Inspection 2 completed this month by Ross at RBM (BMW Indy, Hants) It's now showing 91,200 miles, having added 15k miles in my 6 years ownership.

The Alpina is a very different drive the the M Roadster. Its a lot smoother through the range with torque available in any gear and at low speed, which makes it very comfortable to cruise. However, it can compete more than comfortably with the M's when asked as has been evident on the many trips I've undertaken with other forum members all driving M Coupes and Roadsters.

Alpina only made 367 of these Roadster S's of which only 167 were Right Hand Drive. There are estimated to be somewhere around 100 RHD left and therefore they are an appreciating classic.

The car comes with all Booklets, Documentation and two working keys. I can provide walkaround video's via whatsapp and can provide a link to BMW's last' C-it-now' independent Healthcare Video report, filmed a week ago if required.

I'm asking for £14,995,
The car is in Bristol and available to view but Test drives only available subject to refundable deposit as I 'm not looking to entertain people just out to experience an Alpina (sorry if that sounds harsh)

Good luck with the sale Alan, #019 is looking great. I’d say you made the right choice going back to standard for most things 8)

Fantastic - that was quick! My old F11 535i sold in just a few hours as well. On the one hand it's great, on the other you think, should I have asked for more? I think better just to be pleased with the quick sale.

Roadster #019 was collected today by its new owner who was smiling as he drove off into the sunshine.

Its been a great car and although I've now got #307, I'm still sad to see it go. That car introduced me to a whole new Z4 scene meeting people and sharing experiences that I'd never have dreamt would happen, just from buying a car.

I hope the new owner enjoys it as much as I did and continues to love and cherish as I have. All the signs are there and with him already being an Alpina owner, I'm sure he will.

I'm also sure he'll be along on here very soon to announce his new purchase....

I remember the day I picked up that very car in Feb 2010. Yup, #019 was mine, I was smiling ear to ear.

I was reminiscing with my daughter about my old Alpina Roadster S, looking through some old photos. I'd forgotten the number but found it in one of the pictures #019. Well, just wondering if google could find anything and I was brought here, to find you.

I bought her for around £16k and 2 years later My wife part-ex'd her at Lexus for £8k!!! I was sad to see her go but a baby in nursery made the car impractical.

I never thought I would see her again, thankyou.

Amazing !
I can say that its been a well loved car and thoroughly enjoyed. You'll find photos of it everywhere via Google that I've posted in my 6 years of ownership between 2015-2021.
