Thumbs up New member of Alpina family

Hi Everyone

Just purchased my first Alpina. Have been a Porsche collector and BMW daily driver for some time but finally got myself a dream thanks to Pierlo.

Alpina B3 3.0/1 # 0116 with Switch Gear.

Mechanically and body are superb and some tlc on the interior and it will be MINT! Pictures to follow.

Hey Afshin good to have you here. Looking forward to the pics.
Did you bring the B3 in from Japan or get it here in Canada?

Originally it was a Japanese import. I bought it from the person that imported it here to Canada. Here is a pic. More to follow

Looks like this one:

Is the cluster an Alpina original? I think someone mentioned on another forum that it didn't have an Alpina cluster.

It has the Alpina cluster with the extra switchgear electronic gauges. I am planning on doing a pretty complete restoration on it. My mechanic already took a look and was very impressed by mechanically condition. Aesthetically it needs some tlc mainly on interior and that is what we are going to work on.

You mean the extra readouts on oil temp etc? If so, that's nice. I wish mine had those

You got it. Yeh it's pretty cool although I don't use them much. I think those came only with the switchgear

The cluster was optional on both manual and Switchtronic models. On a manual the gear indicator is replaced with a volt meter.

Cool car
