Alpina B3 Review: The Secret BMW M3 Touring

Post by Jonnywishbone » Wed Jan 13, 2021 11:06 pm

Another glowing review of the G21 B3. Rory almost seemed to be enjoying the car a bit too much, until he nearly binned it into a hedge.

Love the way he started the video asking if BMW have morphed into a very different company these days - nail on the head

He summed up the appeal of an Alpina nicely - that dual personality is what I love about mine. It’s a comfortable family car but it’s also a fantastic drivers car.

Not sure he’s got the greatest car control in the world though. We’re used to seeing the controlled brilliance of a certain Mr Harris these days - that looked a bit wild in comparison!
