Some things I like, some I don't. Part of the appeal ( for me) of the 335 is the wolf in sheeps clothing aspect of the car. Alpina is ripping off the sheepsuit and sharpening up the fangs. For me, that's not appealing. But getting away from the exterior of the car, I really like the interior. In particular I do like the painted trim pieces on the inside. This is an option on that the Porsches have that I always thought was interesting. I don't know how you can't love the work they've done on the engine, suspension and brakes. Is it cost effective? Maybe not, but anyone that thinks they can just go and duplicate their work with a few mods at home is fooling themselves and will end up against the wall on the back turn. I haven't driven the transmission and frankly I find the option disappointing. So there you have it: Some good, some bad.
