Alpina B10 3.3 Touring #047 - For Sale - photos added

Post by woolley11 » Tue Feb 22, 2022 8:21 pm

ImageAs mentioned previously, I’m now selling my ‘51 plate Alpina B10 3.3 Touring switchtronic #047. I’ve owned it for about a year and thoroughly enjoyed ownership but it’s time to thin out my collection. Time for another custodian.

Main details:
1. 150,450 miles (although in use so may increase a bit)
2. MOT to middle of August 22
3. Switchtronic
4. Plenty of service history with handbooks in Alpina wallet with salesman’s card etc.
5. Tilt slide glass sunroof
6. Rear blinds
7. Auto open / close tailgate (doesn’t auto close due to broken wire in tailgate loom)
8. Load cover and net
9. Genuine Alpina car mats
10. 3 original (including service) keys and alloy wheel lock keys

I have owned the car about a year and was bought to fulfil my wish/want to own and run one – basically to get it out my system. Now I am thinning a collection out and regretfully looking to sell it. The V5 is in my name.
Good points

The car is one of originally 19 right hand drive cars in the UK. There are about 10 on the road presently with valid MOTs.

This very car was apparently the 1st LCI (facelift) model B10 3.3 Touring into the UK and is believed to have been Sytner’s demonstrator car. The car was sold to an Accountant and was bought in his company’s name and then he transferred it to his own name. He had the car for about 18.5 years. There was another owner that had it for about 3 weeks which suspect was a trader that put the V5 in his name, then I bought it – in total including Sytner there are 4 previous owners to me.

The car is in Alpina Blue II with Grey Montana Leather interior.

It had had an engine rebuild in the past with new head gasket and chain. Reverse gear solenoid has also been replaced in the past. Temperature gauge sits firmly at 12 o’clock at all times.

It is in generally very good condition and runs like a dream – cannot fault the mechanics as it drives A1 with smooth gear changes through the range. There is also a recent new battery fitted.

It has Sytner Nottingham printed on bottom of number plates with a Sytner dealer sticker in the rear window.
It has 4 very good tyres, excellent alloys without any kerbing or lacquer peel. I have had it serviced when I got it and it still has all five green service lights still lit. It has recently had 4 x lambda sensors fitted and a cracked radiator cowling replaced. Two rear air suspension bags have been replaced too.

When I had it MOT’d last year, the independent BMW engineer actually commented that it was “one of the better ones he had seen” and was in very good order for its age underneath.

Bad points
The only possible negative point is that it was a Cat D about 9 years ago. From details received from the previous owner: It was reversed into by a delivery van in a school car park which kinked the N/S rear quarter panel and broke the rear quarter glass. The car was driven home, and insurance notified. It was assessed on the owner’s driveway by the insurance company. The insurance assessor basically lost the plot and treated it as any old 12-year BMW and wrote it off as a Cat D. The owner was paid out, keeping the car, and it was then professionally repaired. It never went to a salvage yard and forklifted about etc.

There are some very very small bits of bubbling on the rear arches and a scratch on the bonnet but insignificant for a 20+ year old car.

There is one row of pixel deletion on the radio display. These can all be fixed but doesn’t bother me to be honest.

The batteries in the remote central locking keys have gone flat over the last 20 years, so key needs inserting into door lock. Central locking works fine on all 5 doors. Same keys fit ignition and door so all original locks.

I am looking at sensible offers for the car

I still have my B10 3.3 Touring #047 and use it regularly at moment. I did put it on eBay a while ago but ended an aborted sale by so called purchaser who had no intention of buying as made no contact post sale - surprise surprise.

We have been discussing acquiring a motor home now the wife and I, so I may put the #047 up at sensible offers now.

I think it’s ready for new custodian. I would be happy to put a new MOT on it as confident in car

Would it not be easier to say what you wanted for it? Make it a for sale ad or auction it.
