Hah I lol'd.

But yeah I was gonna make my list:
1) Pinstripes = Fail
2) Wheels = Fail (and I was gonna use forks too)
3) Body-colored window trim = Fail
4) MPG = Win

Thats the cost of the car in the UK. Cars in the US a significantly more cheaper. So if the this Alpina were to be sold in the US it will come with a much smaller price tag for the US market. And in the UK people will not be buying this because its green, it will because of the fuel consumption and performence.

I'd be willing to bet it doesn't get 52mpg while doing 6.X 0-60. Driven hard it's mileage most likely drops considerably. It most likely can only do one at a time.

I really wish BMW would produce a 323d and send it to North America. This would be an outstanding daily driver and weekend trip car!

By the way, if you get the Alpina cars, you don't have to take it with the pinstripes or with those wheels. You get some choice in the matter, usually.

if you drive it like its stolen then youll prob get 45mpg instead of 52mpg....still beats my 18mpg on my 328
their goal is to be enviromental efficent which they have done so screw the color and wheels, that can be changed

An M-Sport 323d would suit my fancy just fine!

BMW needs to start putting this engine in the 3-series on their own and send it to North America... or at least Canada.

New color

Courtesy of BMWBlog, there's another color to look at. It's much better than the green, in my humble opinion.

I personally don't think it looks bad at all with the exception of the striping, that I don't like at all.

It just looks like they mixed some 80's stying with something from today. Bad combination when put together. Sometimes I wonder with all the money people put into cars how they can possible come out so ugly. Then again, the majority of people ARE morons. These guys are morons with bad taste too.

German price...

Official German price for 335i and M3 (QP)
335i = 45400€ thats about 70000$
M3 = 67150€ thats about 103532$

man, I would like to live in the states like you guys...
so that D3 is not really expensive, it's much cheaper than the 335i or M3.

I really dig the color. the green looks killer on the E92. If I could have found one on a lot I probably would have bought it.

Hmm, I´m starting to like Alpina. The colour and wheels and everything´s wrong, but it´s kind of cool in a quirky way!
