Re: B3S (E9x) SPECIFIC ALPINA PARTS INFORMATION

Pop a wheel off and have a look at the part numbers already there Then you have exactly the information you require instead of wondering oh is this the right part. Alpina will ise different springs on the E93 as is heavier than the E90 and E92 so best to check what you have on already for a definit...

Re: Supercharger

Hi Michael, Sorry to here of your woes. The clutch kit should be available easily enough as it appears on the US forums that they tend to change them at regular service intervals - unlike over here. Can I be cheeky and ask the name of the dealer that you got the price on the supercharger from, pleas...

Re: B3S SPECIFIC ALPINA PARTS INFORMATION

I just need to be looking at the shocks and springs for the near future - front and rear.

I'll try Buchloe and ask for a guide on it.

I'd normally ask Eamonn at Sytners Nottingham but I always feel bad when he then has to pass it to one of the other dealerships and doesn't get anything out of it.

Re: CPC ALPINA Open Day - May 2019

No Way - I see an addition to the restoration blog coming??? I might be in the same position at this rate as ours in "sans" subframe at the moment awaiting the tool to get the 4 big rubbers out. Don't suppose you've ever done this work? My mechanic is struggling with getting hold of the small bush t...

Re: B3S CAB #233 BITURBO ISSUES

Cheers, The WIFE has bought another one Asim - who am I to advise her differently!!! LOL. Reading up more on the 335i injector issue it seems to be from that swathe of 2010 cars - so I presume that it is that - which may explain that is only from one bank. Anyway it is in for an oil and spark plug c...

Re: CPC ALPINA Open Day - May 2019

Are you not chancing it with your B10 Asim??

Sadly, I was looking forwards to comparing steering wheels as I think our could also do with replacing!!

Re: B5 Intermittent Non Starting Issue

Hi, Been V. busy at work so not had the time to update on this. After having a near heart attack and thinking that i was going to be in for many £'s to sort - this cheap fix seems to have done the trick!!! (Touch Wood). The car has done roughly 3k miles since - including our summer jaunt down to the...

B3S CAB #233 BITURBO ISSUES

Hi, It might be one of my less good decisions - but managed to strike a deal on #233 B3S - BiTurbo Cab over the weekend. Apart from a set of tyres, an interior tidy up and some odd bits of paint it "seems" fine. Only one thing (probably major) - after running for a while there is a whiff of petrol c...

B3S (E9x) SPECIFIC ALPINA PARTS INFORMATION

Hi,

I am struggling to find the specific parts information sheets for the E93 B3S Bi-Turbo - and repair manual (if they do one?).

I don't suppose anyone has access to one or can provide a link, please?

They are always helpful when dealing with the Dealer Parts Teams!!

Any help gratefully recieved.

Nice looking colour. Isn't that the car park opposite the Kurzal? Welcome to the forum from an old Essex boy (long time ago). Still got family in Hadleigh and use the visits as an excuse to give ours a run every couple of months. Might see you around as we always have a trip down the sea-front!! Enj...

Not much room in there is there!!! I take it that you have a ramp or a pit.

What issue were you getting that needed that part changing?

Hi Phil

Just ordered a unit - will be here Wednesday.

Did you disconnect the battery to do this or did you just crack on?

Take it that you have had no coding issues whilst switching the cables over from module to module?

Hi All, Thanks for the responses - all pretty plausible. Car was on incline the first time but on Sunday it was just flat. Reading into the posts when you put the IVM/ISM code into Google - that looks like the most likely cause - so I might give that a try b4 anything else. Thinking back I did have ...

B5 Intermittent Non Starting Issue

Bit of a weird one this. Back in March - after a decent motorway trip in the rain - I parked the car up in the drive, turned it off and when I returned it wouldn't turn over?? Half an hour later it started with no issue - I presumed it was the rain and thought no more about it. When I mentioned it a...
