The only difference is the HP!

Don't spend an arm and a leg on a used M3! Save money every month on insurance!

the guy has a sense of pride in this ownership, and okay, props for that. The only thing I take offense is that he thinks a 328 with over 100k miles is worth anything close to $18k

Nicely done but you're missing a few things:

1) ditch alpina badge
2) rear LCI

3) oh yeah the M motor, don't want to forget that

All that aside it's a nice looking car. I don't think those seeking M cars are worried about saving gas or saving on insurance. That's mutually exclusive.

In that case there is more drivetrain loss from the awd, so it's less efficient than our ///M's!

(Ok, I'm grasping at straws now )

"Complete M3 conversion" less the front bumper, side mirrors, and, oh yea, the 8300rpm V8. No big deal...

What a joke...

Great job. I like people who modify their cars. Pride of ownership
Someone should do M3 to 325 conversion and see how that takes

Thats what i was gonna say at least put the headlights.

I love the (paraphrase) oh i dont NEED to sell it and i have always driven luxury vehicles and would buy another one after i sell this.

Whats next an e60 to m6 conversion? Maybe a 528i to alpina b7 conversion is in the horizon.

I feel like replying im looking to buy this car so i can have two black e90 m3s.

So it's an Alpina AND a ///M?

I mean i'm not against people modifying their cars to look how they want it to look but I don't like it when people put a badge on it and pretend it's something it's not

And the sedan headlights really throw me off....same with the fog lights on the "M" bumper

With the amount of money into that with the "conversion" and paint etc, he could have had a high mileage M3
