My Ride: alpina b3
new member, E46 alpina b3 and 318i

hi all

my name is ivar, and currently own two E46's one is late model 318i, and the other is a alpina b3 3.3 touring, nr46/146

the alpina is a 2001 model, orientblau with black montana leather, fully loaded
really well taken care of and has registered service since day 1

here it is on the winter wheels





and here is the migthy 318



actually the 318 is a great car, for me it shows how good the E46 are, strip away all of its options, give it a tiny motor, and its still a great car

best regards.
ivar

My Ride: alpina b3
thanks man.

i guess that the b3 is among the rarest E46's.
its a truly wonderfull car, i bougth it in december, but i've owned it before and sold it back in 2008.
its a stunning car to drive, the alpinas are so over engineered

it is the most loaded E46 i've seen so far. i think it has every electric gizmo available, and its a individual car also, black headliner and some other stuff.

here are few pics since i had it before (07-08) it still had the oem alpina suspension (wich i miss) so it wasn't as low as it is now, now its running on coilovers+alpina swaybars.

thank you.

yes the 318 is a good car to own over here with the most expensive gas in the world (over 10$/gallon)
but whee are used to those small engines over here.

i sometimes say that the 318 show best how good the E46's are, take away its 6cyl motor, and then take away its gadged's and its still a great car




i also picked this one up last week and fiexed it up a bit for my brother. a 98 318ia. driven 130k


and the alpina in the sun yesterday. on coilovers and white wheels
