I had somehow been unaware that Alpina was going as high as 462hp for their latest B58 makeover (presumably based on the B58B30O1 as found in the M340i). That puts this car in RS4 territory which is pretty awesome.

Does the Navi screen look a bit different in shape/length than that of the U.S. G Series or are my eyes deceiving me?

Will the Alpina B3 be available in the USA (sounds like it won't be)? Any clue on the price? Might be a good alternative to the G80 M3 if you want to avoid that new grille on the G22 4 series Concept (the M3 should get the same front end as the G22 and G82).

Ooh Alpina used the M-sport bumper and steering wheel instead of the base versions this time.

It's being reported that it's the S58.

Thank goodness for the M-Sport front bumper. If only they would have gone with the same decision for the new B7 and the e60 (maybe I should let that one go already).

Geez that's beautiful. With the M3 likely getting the awful schnoz B3 is a better option than ever.

Loving a fast estate.

510PS and 516lb ft

You can keep your SUVs...

https://www.topgear.com/car-news/big...c63-amg-estate

A car should be fun right? This review is spot on, so it would be interesting to compare against the B3...
