I know this is the diesel, but the B3 has an N54 twin turbo I6.

I'm puzzled that Alpina sits a bit high and front/rear are baseline with a lip and a spoiler. Quads pop a bit too much. Eye of the beholder I guess.

The alpina b3 has a modified n55 engine with a twin turbo setup. Thats how it utilizes variable valve timing and gets decent fuel economy. perfect setup, very fast car. It is not an N54.

Well shit........I stand corrected. I thought I remembered an article talking about the n54 as a possibility, but you have got me convinced! Thanks for not being a jerk about it! Most on here would seize the opportunity immediately. Hahahaha........cheers!

lol I would never be a jerk to someone for no reason. It's really cool how they changed that engine. I think it's valvtronic not vvt that the n55/alpina has that the n54 doesn't.

I used to love Alpina's in the past, but they all look the same in my opinion.. And why don't Aplina start with an M Sport??

Cant argue with all the fine Alpina fine touches. Now, how does one in the USA, get a hold of those wheels.....? Cost?
