Just looking on ALPINA.de and noticed they are advertising demounted engines and exhaust For Sale .....




Direct Link to ALPINA.de page

Basically it is the 3.0-litre engine and exhaust from the Z4...

Very simple explanation, the Z4´s are made in the US. It seems that ALPINA doesn´t want the Roadster S to be built in the US/ doesn´t want to ship parts for conversion to US. And BMW USA doesn´t seem to want to ship Z4 shells to ALPINA either. So the Roadster S is handbuilt at ALPINA premises in Buchloe, unlike the other models which are built by BMW. Funny though, that BMW Germany as it seems don´t care about the engines :confused2
