Introduction

The not-so–loud styling, not that the M3 is loud at all, makes this car ideal for those who love BMW’s superb handling 3-series platforms, but still would want to slip under the radar just a little.

There are those who believe in BMW’s M cars. Any BMW with a real M badge on it would always trigger thoughts of mind-blowing performance; excellent handling and sublime exhaust notes. Then there are the virtues of mind-blowing performance, excellent handling and sublime exhaust notes… But all a little more understated.

The Alpina B3 Touring represents one of two 3-series cars here, the other being the sedan variant, which presents a very attractive alternative.

The not-so–loud styling, not that the M3 is that loud at all, makes this car ideal for those who love BMW’s superb handling 3-series platforms, but still would want to slip under the radar just a little.

The B3 does it its own way, with the partially built ‘Beemers’ being brought into the Alpina factory for further fettling of the already superbly built straight-six and additional tweaks to the rest of the car, as Clifford Chow finds out more, being given butt time in the Touring model.

Good response and support from Angie at One Shift when I wanted to sell off my old Camry which was due to be scrapped in early February. Would recommend this platform for those wanting to buy or sell their cars.
