FULL SERVICE HISTORY

READY TO SHOW EXAMPLE

  1. Introduction

Here we have a May 1999 Alpina B3 3.2 Carbrio, which has covered 127,000 Miles.  A low owner car, with 4 very careful, enthusiast owners. An absolutely immaculate, unrepeatable example wherever you look, this stunning Alpina is ready to show now. This is a very rare car, the later, improved 3.2 version.

So what is the Alpina B3 ? The Alpina B3 is based on the E36 328. Alpina then take these cars to their own, BMW approved factory and make enhancements all over the car, to turn and already good car into something really special , something with similar performance to an M3, but in a more subtle way. Alpina start by extending the engine to 3.2 litres, along with making  many improvements to the engine including light weight pistons, improved cooling, improved breathing and bespoke exhausts, bringing the power of this engine up to an impressive 265 BHP.  Alpina then turn their attention to the gearbox, making improvements to the gearbox and software. They add steering buttons to allow you to control gear changes or just leave in automatic mode. Also gearbox temp and gear selected indicators are added to the dashboard. You will notice that the response from the gearbox is noticeably quicker than on the standard car, in both automatic mote and Switchtronc (using steering wheel buttons) mode. Alpina are famous for their suspension, they use Bilstein suspension all round, making the car handle perfectly without making the ride harsh, this works brilliantly. Alpina upgrade the alloys, to very light weight 17 inch items, which also look fantastic. Lastly, but just as importantly, Alpina make changes to the interior / bodywork, so every time you look and drive this car, you know you are in something special.

The result is fantastic. The noise from the engine and exhaust is just right, a noticeably deeper, more sporty sound, but still perfectly livable day to day. The response from the engine and gearbox is fantastic, you really notice the extra performance, this is a quick, but very refined feeling car, the suspension setup feels just right.

It may come across, I am a big fan of this era of Alpina cars, this Alpina looks and drives perfectly.
