All Alpina's are 2.3 or 2.5/2.7 small blocks or 2.8/3.5 big block out of
Small blocks C1, C2 and C3, big ones B6 or B6 3.5 or E30 M3 --> B6 3.5 S.
Automatics available, at least in 1984 (I have an original brochure).
Alpina's can be recognized by: (not complete)
- - Silver plate central console with type and production number
- - 16 inch Alpina wheels
- - lowered with Biltstein's
- - B6 has cooled diff (option on C1,2,3)
- - Scheel interior with green/purple stripes
- - Alpina wheel (4-spoke)
- - Original cars are have Alpina as manufacturer and not BMW (anybody know
as from which year?)
Summary, 2-liter E-30 definitely no Alpina. Anybody interested I can
provide with exact production numbers.
Prices in Germany seem to vary between DM 7.000 and DM 20.000 for a C1,2,3
or B6/B6 3.5 (depending on year and mileage (now; that's new!)). Never seen
a B6 3.5 S for sale. FWIW: Once saw a Hartge H36-24 for sale, modified
Sport Evolution with 315 HP for DM 45.000 (I have a JPEG).
