B5 G30 332 pics.

Post by D3orbust » Sun Feb 11, 2024 12:07 pm

Just posting up some quick pics of the B5, bought in August 2023 via Alpina Alex at sytner Nottingham.

It’s my wife’s daily as I have a company van, but in all honesty we absolutely love the thing as it has every option that we would spec up, comfort access, sunroof, adaptive lights, 4 zone air con etc etc

Even though it’s a 2018, everything just feels box fresh ie the steering wheel feels brand new, the rear seats look like they haven’t been used and it still has that new car smell.

Bad points, the P-zero Alp tyres dont fill me with that much confidence when compared to the Michelins that have been on all my other Alpina’s.

The spec is Azurite black with a black on black interior which I need to brighten up somehow, also looking at possibly adding flappy paddles to the steering wheel if I can find some that are discreet.

A big thank you to forum member Rav as he stumbled across the car when at sytner and I asked him about it.

Lovely car. Azurite is a lovely shade - a bit like Carbon black with a rich blue tint to it in bright sun. And love the plate!
Enjoy!

Thanks for that

The plate was just a random find on a Friday evening after the pub.

Lovely looking car

I’m so in two minds to put in my 2018 G31 520d Touring and sell my 2001 B10 Touring to get a B5 G31 Touring 🤔

I don’t use either that much but I know it could be a regretful decision if I sold either and certainly can’t afford a 3rd 5 series estate let alone another Alpina.

And the wife would certainly cut off my b….

Great looking car. Thanks for the pics, I don't think I have ever seen a B5 or a B3 in Azurite in the UK.
