    Re: Ordering an Alpina D3

    I test drove the D3 a few weeks back.  This model didn't have the LSD and the back axle struggled a bit on full throttle openings.  You need the LSD or 4 wheel drive.  Fabulous car though.

    Should be standard - LSD is a 3.050 CHF (excl vat) option but indeed a must.

    Re: Ordering an Alpina D3

    Late to this thread. Congrats Porker on the D3 order. Wished Alpina cars are an option in Australia. I would love to buy one for my wife seeing that she is more conscious on fuel consumption than I am. A M3 and D3 daily drivers for my wife and I would be the perfect combination!


    Re: Ordering an Alpina D3

    Thanks Way, delivery day is nearing now. Really getting excited about the prospect it'll offer, huge pace, great economy, a beautifully appointed cabin and hooligan RWD dynamics if required.

    We should be able to shine more light on the car in two weeks' time.

    Re: Ordering an Alpina D3

    Have mine (xdrive touring) since April and covered about 10tkm now. Avg. fuel consumption is 8.2l. I drive it the same way as my previous everday car (550ix limo) where the avg. consumption was 14.6l

    You will love riding that torque mountain. 200km/h is about 3000 rpm. Can't think of a better alround car.

    Here's a short video of the D3 Touring, from Auto, Motor und Sport (in German obviously).

    Very nice car. You definitely made the right choice Frank.  I would take this one over an M3 or M4 anytime.

    Re: Ordering an Alpina D3

    Getting a bit annoyed with the garage though. Don't want to get into a name-'n-shame round, but the guy who is handling the purchase at Heidegger is not the most communicative person. Delivery ought to happen soon, say beginning of September, yet still we don't know anything.

    On top of that I discovered that one can suddenly spec 19" wheels instead of 20", which wasn't an option when we ordered. Furthermore there is now a Navi Connected Drive package available for 3.890 CHF - we picked Navi Pro and 'Komorttelefonie' (3.300 + 900 CHF), meaning we paid more but are now missing out on Connected Drive Services, RTTI, Concierge Services & Remote Services.

    I've put in a small complaint a while back, it could not be changed but they would consider a commercial gesture. Yet still no reply...

    It's a bit startling if one orders a 3series for about 90K CHF.

    One year after delivery, 52.000km and counting and still hugely impressed by the D3. Its acceleration never fails to amaze, it still offers genuine driving pleasure and it has been as reliable as a Toyota Hi-Lux, fantastic product by Alpina! kiss

    All you need now is for that guy who parked his car behind yours to keep his distance.   Smiley

    Good old Ixelles! 

    A great looking car indeed. Smiley

    I understand why you choose the D3 and not the B3. That's a lot of use in one year.

    Strangely, I have not yet ran into you. It will come for sure, even though I do not work near the "Bois de la cambre" anymore.
