Another one of those Alpinas

Doesn't look expensive as long as it's not a heap underneath!

Chocy Rocky

Yeah, that looks good. I love the interior.
Frank Bullitt

Don't like that, the E46 still looks good as an M-Sport on the right wheels but not as an Alpina; reminds me of a chavvy E30 for some reason.

Interior's clean. Can't really think of anything else good to say about it.
Roadrunner

That looks chavved to me as well.
Giant

Alpinas fall into two camps, stunning or nasty. This is in the latter.
Big Blue

I must say the E46 B3 convertible isn't high on the list of "like". Most are gauche due to the initial build spec being done by someone with all the taste of a UFC fighter.
Andy C

Looks chav to me too

Looks Chav but easily fixed by swapping the grille and wheels.

That's what I thought. The wheels just need a paint.
Martin

I don't think that will ever look good.

I think I agree. Alpinas are borderline chav anyway and the convertible-ness tips it over the line. It's all about the wagons for me.

Yes, they tread a fine line and it's very easily crossed.
Bob Sacamano

The interior is nice, I just don't like the grille, the wheels, or the rear spoiler. All easily changed.

You could find any number of good E46 M3s for that price
Giant

Another potentially divisive Alpina:

Brown with gold pin stripes is more than a touch British Leyland.
Frank Bullitt

The interior is bang-on, the outside would at least hide the vomit.
Big Blue

Interior is superb and the 600bhp mill is just the ticket. I actually like the Chestnut Bronze but would have a different interior colour with it.

That colour really is rather unpleasant. A sort of metallic shit brown.
Bob Sacamano

Proves the adage that while you can't polish a turd you can roll it in shiny glitter.
Nice Guy Eddie

Everything in moderation

An interior of brown with beige piping and blue LED's, oh dear. Not all lost though, I like the wood

Would make a lovely coffin. And I'm now looking at that those pleated curtains somewhat differently...
Big Blue

Let's face it, the individual that spunked 150k+ on it isn't actually bothered with our opinions.
Big Blue

Let's face it, we all double post from time to time
