Dropped off my B3s for a lock-up solenoid replacement this afternoon and spotted a Green E46 B3 3.3 Cab with hardtop in Alpina Green in the carpark - waiting for parts...looked in really nice order.

Jason also mentioned that he has a B10 v8 in as well...

Anyone on here?

If it's still there when I pick up mine (now next week some time....Bill wasn't happy with the TC) I'll see if I can get a build no and some pics.

From what Jason said, it was waiting for a drive plate - sounds like it had cracked (think Charles had the same issue)

Been there - cracked the drive plate years ago and had it replaced under warranty with the upgraded ALPINA part

And been there - Stephens did a fantastic job on my gearbox (cracked drum) and made my TC work beautifuĺly

On the Archive, there’s one Oxford Green (#155) and a few in Scarab Green B3’s in the UK and the only Alpina Green B3 was in Russia. Obviously, the Archive isn’t definitive but it’s a good steer.
