Cool looking car. Not a fan of all the blue but it's surely a rare bird!

thanks! pictures dont do this car justice. must be seen live. with these minor mods, it blows my m3 by 2 to 3 car length at speeds around 210 kmph

i had the b3 a year before getting the m3, however i barely drive it. i have a 2010 infiniti g37 for daily use. many that i know and along side people that would never drive any flashy colored car changed their minds right away after getting in the b3. i was never going to buy the alpina. i was at the dealer years ago looking to get the m3. i saw the alpina sitting there and i sat in it, it stole my heart right away. and brand new, it is also nearly $29000 more than the price of the m3 at the dealer. it has every option and individual color. it only had 1700 km and priced just as much as the m3. so i thought about exclusivity and i save nearly $30000 from buying it brand new.
i always loved the 335 and how fast it can be when slightly tuned. so the alpina was just a great choice for me. 500 nm of torque will blow your mind on such a small car.
m3 and alpina, two different cars, naturally aspirated engine vs forced induction. two great cars to drive. when i drive the m3, i miss the alpina, and visa versa, i miss the m3 when im in the alpina.
in terms of speed, the higher exhaust on the m3 makes it feel faster, however when i raced both, the m3 won by nearly 2 cars at speeds close to 200 kmph.
with afe dual cone intake and scoops installed on the alpina, the alpina won over the m3 by nearly 1 car length at 200.
with the active autowerke downpipes and eisenmann race exhaust, it wins by around 3 car length. that twin turbo engine is under estimated.

anyways sorry for the long reply. soon the m3 will win again ess vt625 soon

So M3 and Alpina but you drive an Infiniti daily???????? what are you saving the Bimmers for?
With a color like that I can't drive the Alpina daily however I have the exact same E92 and slam a 3500KM/month on it.

hehe, traffic is a mess over here and i drive around 150 km daily. so for my work, i think it is best to stick to the infiniti i got the infiniti brand new, its a 2010 and already has 43000 km in less than 8 month!

Thanks for sharing the Alpina pics. They offered this model in a dark metallic green which looked great.

Those are fighting words, but I too agree! Don't want to come off harsh, because that's a rare car (B3); I just don't see myself driving the car with that exact interior. Each to his own, but I would LOVE to hear a sound clip of the B3 in action.

How about a race with another beast (M3)?

Either way, thank you very much for showing your exotic bimmers with the community.

I've always loved Alpina wheels and their performance overall. I don't know that I could handle the interior on a daily basis but I think i could get over it with the power it puts down.

Either way, thank you very much for showing your exotic bimmers with the community.

it's my pleasure being on this board. more to come soon.
here is a quick race featuring both my alpina and m3 along side another tuned m3. at the time of this race, the alpina only had the afe dual cone intake with scoops and bald and dry tires that do not grip until 140 kmph.
race started at about 60 kmph all the way to about 190.


by the way. cool signiture, how high movie is a classic!!
