SUPERB FULL HISTORY
AMAZING PERFORMANCE COUPE
Here at Old Colonel Cars, we have an excellent example of a Alpina D3 Bi-Turbo Coupe. This low owner, 2008 D3 is in stunning condition, has only 3 owners from new, the current owner has proudly cherished this car for the last 11 years. This is no 008, believed to be the first UK car. 1 of 96 UK cars, this example has covered 135,000 miles and benefits from an excellent, fully documented service history. This really is a superb example, clearly been looked after and maintained correctly, a credit to it previous owners.
If you are looking for a rare, good looking coupe, this Alpina has all the performance you will need. The D3 Bi Turbo features a 212 BHP twin turbo, diesel engine. Other Alpina improvements include Alpina cat-back exhaust, Alpina ECU and gearbox settings, Steering wheel button gear changes, Alpina bodykit, 19-inch wheels, Sports suspension, Sports seats and a sports steering. This results in a 0-60 6.7 seconds and a 152 MPH top speed. But its the real world performance that will impress. From 20 mph to 100 mph, there really isn’t much this car won’t surprise, it just goes and keeps on going strong, well over 100 MPH if you let it, it doesn’t slow down until 150 MPH, read the many positive reviews. All while returning up to 50 MPG.
As you can probably tell, I am very impressed with the D3 Bi-Turbo package. For a car to be used and enjoyed, it really does impress. The performance on offer with the fuel economy are great, but also the suspension setup is perfect for this car, not harsh at all, but still this coupe handles very well indeed, obviously this is what Alpina are known for, but still very impressive. Brakes are also excellent and with the Alpina bodywork and 19 inch Alloys, I think this coupe looks great as well.

Bodywork / Interior / Wheels etc
Finished in Space Grey Metallic, the paintwork and bodywork on this Alpina are excellent. Look all around this car, look at the video on our main site, from all angles, its in excellent condition with a deep all over shine.
The interior is the same excellent condition. Looking at the condition, you would really think this is a low mileage example. Everywhere you look, its in excellent condition.
The lovely 19 Inch Alpina alloys are all in excellent condition, all fitted with quality tyres.
Engine / Gearbox
The straight six twin turbo engine performs perfectly. With no fuss, hot or cold, this engine just propels you along effortlessly. This car features the 6 speed, Switchtronic gearbox. You can drive in normal automatic or switch leaver to left to enter sports mode. This really livens things up, holding the gear longer and you can change gear using the buttons on the steering wheel.
This example benefits from a fully documented service history. We have the original Alpina Order and Invoice, a folder full of old Mot’s, Service receipts, All the original manuals in their original folder, Original and fully stamped Alpina service book, Full HPI clear report.
Looking through the history, all the wear and tear items have been done, DPF, EGR Valve, Intercoolers etc with no expense spared. The last BMW main dealer bill, from November 2020, was a full service and extras including new Turbo / DPF etc, This came to £4992, including a full, clear health check, this car has covered less than a 1000 miles since.
I am very impressed with this Alpina D3 Bi Turbo, and with just having a full service at 135,010 miles, this car is ready to be enjoyed now !
