What is your Alpina, year and mileage.
If you have a high mileage, have you had any issues.

Me - Nov 02 B3S coupe, 72k, not a single problem :M5launch:

B10 V8 Touring 2001 - 75k miles.

1. Usual problem of top hose blowing (common fault on all V8's - should be changed as a precaution every 50K miles).

2. Camshaft sensor failed reducing power.

3. DSP bug causes radio to mute occasionally - no BMW fix.

Otherwise one of the most reliable cars I have owned.

1997 B10 V8 - 92K miles
Camshaft sensor (replaced under warranty)
Radiator leak (replaced under warranty)
Door mirrors glass discolouration (corrosion I think) - replaced under warranty
Spoiler mounting bolts started to corrode (new bootlid, done under warranty)
The electric seat knob has come off because my foot keeps kicking it when I get out of the car

That's it I believe.. Not bad for 5 years of ownership and 60K miles. How can you beat a car like that? Performance, exclusivity, looks, comfort... and reliability as well.. :thumbsup:
