Only on the B3 GT3, not on the normal B3 Biturbo (which uses the stock 335i brakes).

Alpina actually tested three brake sets for the GT3 (AFAIK), among them also the PFC set that I have installed on my car (which is also the reason why I have custom painted calipers in blue...). They chose StopTech in the end because they were less expensive and could continue using the stock brake pad sensors (which is not possible on the PFC set as they have one pad per caliper).
