Maybe ebay but they will probably be fake.

try www.ecstuning.com You will probably have to buy at the dealer and it will be expensive. Hopefully your car is a true Alpina.

ECS tuning doesn't have http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/Alpina/

Yea, I know, dealership, but I prefer some cheaper solution

eBay was first I tried, but no success... Only wheel and steering wheel badges...

Don't have Alpina, of course, got 323Ci, but I've decided to style it as an Alpina (exterior). So, front lip + those decals (don't like Alpina wheels and rear spoiler). Also, some ******* has keyed my car and those decals will cover it perfectly

go to a vinyl shop and have them make it up and apply it. Will cost you less than an authentic alpina emblem. Save the genuine stuff for the engine bay

Got one used original for 170 USD in sight, in case that I fail to get it or it turns out to be a replica, I will get that replica from ebay.co.uk for 120 USD.

I found Original Authentic Alpina lip for ~$360 but with shipping upwards of $400+ which is still not too bad compared to the US distributor of $800+

I definitely won"t pay more than 250 USD for an used lip. Will get that replica in case I won't get original for a decent price.

I am surprised by the number of people that sound okay with Alpina decals on a non-Alpina. People cry blasphemy if someone puts an M badge on their non-M.

In Europe too, that one I've found for 170 USD is very exception, regarding the price Standard price is sonethin' between 300-400.

Get the lip, call it a day. Forget the Alpina badges. I would say forget the badges even if you were going all out and getting the appropriate wheels, spoiler etc., it's a 323. I can see the Youtube video now, Camry destroys Alpina E46.

Better M badge on non-M or Alpina decals on non-Alpina than shits what can be seen at tuning shows You know, these are still original accessories for an E46
