I like all nice and decently styled, clean and well maintained cars, regardless, what's under the hood.

I'll agree to disagree, it's your car after all. I would consider it worse than "M" badges on a non-M since Alpina is considered its own automobile manufacturer. Be sure to post pictures when all is said and done so we can see the end product though.

It means Alpina decals and front lip Actually, I've decided to take off these decals and I'll install the lip only. I wanted to mod look of the car little bit and i don't like M-Tech bumpers...

ok i agree take off the decals and install the lip only. Alpina wheels would be nice but also probably expensive.

My Ride: E46 Alpina B3 3.3
Exclamation Alpina B3 Alloy Centre Badge

Hi Guys!

I own an E46 Alpina B3 3.3. I wanted to ask if any one knows if the alloy rim's have the clip on centre badge or a sticker?

I've been looking around on ebay and stuff and they have stickers but also the clip on ones. Thing with my car is the Alpina logo is worn out from the alloy rims and the logo is a rotating cover for the lock. I cant happen to tell if its just a sticker or actually a clip cap.

I dont wanna risk trying to pull it and finding it out the hard way. I'll really appreciate any help/advice.

Thanks.

How did you go about installing it? Thinking of doing the same to my 323Ci...it's a little more period correct than the M-tech II bumpers.

It's also something that not everyone has!

I used that black glue that is used to bond windshields. Then just fixed lip in position with tape for couple hours...

And thanks for compliments
