F30 B3s

Post by RufRt12 » Tue Jul 10, 2018 7:03 pm

At my local Sytner dealership in Essex there’s a gorgeous Alpina Blue unregistered 2018 B3s saloon up for sale at £75000. As much as I love staring at it as I drive past every morning it got me wondering if there were any more floating around waiting to be purchased.

At 75K, I think you will be staring at it for quite a while :D

I bought a new fully loaded 340m sport last year for 33K, not an Alpina but the price difference is frightening :(

I was seriously toying with the idea but when you can get a pre-reg M3 with less than 100miles for 25K less I guess someone would really REALLY want the exclusivity to cough up for this especially when the new model’s just around the corner!!


(having said that whoever does buy it please store my details as, in a few years time, I’ll happily take it from you at half the price)

This has always been the way with any new Alpina - you have really really got to want one to justify the outlay over a standard BMW/M offering, especially when you consider discounts and finance packages.

As a used car however, they are a no brainer.
