Here we have a superb example of one of the very last E39 Alpina B10’s, a 2003 3.3 with 107,000 Miles. I am a massive fan of the Alpina B10, have driven countless examples over the years, this is the very best 3.3 I have driven. This rare colour looks amazing on this model and the engine and gearbox on this car are the most responsive I have been lucky enough to enjoy.
This B10 is in immaculate condition throughout. The Sterling Grey metallic paintwork is in amazing condition, as you can hopefully see from the pictures. The paintwork has the deepest of shines, the extra lacquer and attention to detail from Alpine really show in this outstanding example. There are no noticeable dings or dents in the bodywork, its obviously been very carefully looked after. Look down the sides, across the roof and bonnet, front and rear bumpers, its all in amazing shape, if you are looking for one of these, you will not be disappointed.
The interior is finished in Black leather, complimented with wood trim. Obviously the E39 5 Series has one of the best designed interiors of any car, Alpina just made a few subtle improvements. These include Alpina Logos on the seats, Alpina Floor Mats, Alpina Blue background dials and lastly the Alpina plaque below the rear view mirrors, just to remind you and your passengers you are in something special.
The specification includes PAS, ABS, Traction control, Electric seats, Heated Seats, Electric windows, Electric mirrors, Electric steering wheel adjustment, Climate control / Air conditioning, Cruise control, Multifunction steering wheel, Parking sensors, Toolkit, Parrot hands free phone kit etc
As one of the very last B10’s, this car comes from Alpina with M5 Msport wing mirrors, fully colour coded bumpers, Parking sensors, Gloss window trim etc and the larger 19 inch Classic Alpina alloys, These alloys look fantastic and on this example are in excellent condition, even the spare is unmarked
This example comes with full serviced history, we have all the manuals, a fully stamped service book plus a folder full of old MOT’s and Service receipts, spare keys etc. This example has always been looked after correctly, by either BMW or well respected specialist.
This model features the Alpina 3.3 straight six engine, producing 280 bhp. This engine is a delight to use, extremely responsive and very fast and smooth, 0-60 comes up in around 6 seconds. But its the way the car performs as a whole that will impress, its been designed to be used and enjoyed. Alpina look at all the elements on an already good car The engine’s displacement is increased to 3.3, lightweight Mahle Pistons are fitted along with improvements to the cylinder head, reprogrammed engine management , Exhaust, Brakes, Gearbox software, Suspension etc, all improved to take the already good E39 to another level. The whole package really works, 5 minutes driving one of these and you will know what all the fuss is about. The performance is superb, the gearbox changes come almost instantly. Obviously this example has the Switchtronic gearbox, which means you can change gears using buttons on the steering wheel, great fun.
Every little detail has been seen to when required. On top of the excellent service history, little items like the pixel display on the radio and dash, on this model they can break up and be difficult to read. Well on this example they have been replaced with new items, so all as good as new. The very expensive M5 mirrors with the light reflecting glass, again have been replaced when showing wear at great expense, so they are as good as new. The tyres have always been replaced with the Alpina recommended items. There is nothing to do to this car, apart from enjoy it. That’s the difference on a properly cared for car like this.
This example drives and performs perfectly. and will come with a years MOT.
