Question Opinions about the Alpina D3?

Hi everyone I'm new around here. Thinking about getting an Alpina D3 as a second car. Anyone have any experience with these & what's your opinion?

Any thoughts most welcome

I saw the review of this car in EVO I think it was and it did look a good package.

Kinda like the 320 si ... but in Diesel form.

If I was in the market for BMW "D" then I would seriously consider this car as you're getting an exclusive car that looks great, will no doubt handle superbly and carries the BMW badge.

Nice 18" alloys too

The only thing that would put me off is that if you want to option it up it's then a special order and there is supposedly quite a price hike for this.

However, if you're in the market for an exclusive diesel and the spec. suits, or you have the money then it looks like a brilliant car.

Isn't is also cheaper than a 320d MSport?

Alpina certainly make some wonderful machines, D3 no exception

However, I personally don't take much of a liking towards cars that have the "tuned" look - I prefer stock designs, perhaps because there is an air of "original & untouched" about them, but that's just me.

What specific purposes are you buying for?

I can't commit to the meet right now but it sounds like a fun day - will try and make it.

The car will be primarily for my wife (runaround for the kids etc.).
