    BMW Alpina Automobiles

    Yesterday, I attended a presentation event for Alpina Automobiles.

    Although I knew of them and their motorsport history in the past, I haven't watched them closely recently.

    Anyone owns a car, or has any experience or impressions especially about their B3 and D3 biturbo models?

    What is their reputation and popularity in the traditional european markets, like Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland, GB etc.

     


    Re: BMW Alpina Automobiles

    I cant be too sure of their reputation in the countries you have mentioned but I am assuming it must be positive. I do have links to roadtests if you wish.Smiley

    Actually, Alpina will go back to racing again in 2009 in the FIA GT3 series.

    That's a good news , they have such a good racing heritage.

    Re: BMW Alpina Automobiles

    They are generally considered to be better built than the standard BMW, and sometimes faster than the M counterpart, at least in a straight line. The biggest issue IMO is the resale value since they are so "exclusive", less than 100 are sold in the UK pr year according to Steve Sutcliffe.

     Here is his review of the B3 BiTurbo in Autocar:

    I agree. I once talked ot an Alpina owner, he was very happy with the car but 2nd hand market does not seem to value the exclusivity if you sell on the open market. Might be a different story at BMW and Alpina dealerships.
