That's ridiculously expensive.

Before BMW stopped discounting a new 335i could be had for 27k

those are most shit rims alpina have produced ever. The classic muti spoke and it's variants are sweet. saw them on a x5 and they still looked bad. No offense to anyone who runs em

I think those wheels look better on a coupe - especially in Alpina green or Alpina blue. I think I marginally prefer them to the classic Alpina wheels - mainly because they might be marginally easier to clean.

... mind you, I've got a spare set of 230s

It looks odd, to put it mildly. We could use it over here in the US though (44 MPG).

Not true Carlos. I remember pricing up a manual 335i msport with pro nav and leather on drivethedeal.com for approx 28K.

Prices have been extremely volatile over the last 2 years and I really do think that this is way OTT.

I'd agree but surely the Alpina has more exclusivity than either of the above. It instantly looks different to the standard E9* and an obvious Alpina car.
