love what Alpina does each time. Excited to see how they both stack up in a head to head once things are all out.

That looks so good, and I love me some Alpina rims!

I'd order mine in Green and of course as a wagon.

I guess quite a few customers choose the B3 over the M3 because it is a sleeper car, and if you're doing so, ordering it in mineral gray with black interior makes it even more sleeper.

The lack of manual in the B3 is easier to swallow than the buck tooth of the M3.

I'm probably one of the few that hates Alpina rims. They also look like a bitch to clean . I definitely would take a New M3 over this.

Surprised/impressed they used the S58. Has Alpina ever used S engines in their cars before? I feel like they usually just modify N variants.

No you’re not. I think they look way too busy and antiquated. And a bitch to clean. LOL
