I'm not crazy about the colour displayed in the photos (never liked the Kermit-like green), but the rims are great, would love to get my hands on these.

Same for the brakes, I wonder which manufacturer they're from. Maybe Brembo? But then, the Brembo 380mm BBK does not fit under the standard Alpina rims (I tried). Maybe the forged alloys are larger, though.

FYI, Alpina uses the N54 engine with a flash tuning in their B3 S. Also, the transmission software is remapped, changes gears twice as fast as the normal AT and holds the gear that is selected.

Their aerodynamic kits (front / rear spoiler, although probably not that huge wing displayed here) have been extensively tested in air tunnels and produce excellent results (better than the standard M3, by the way).
