For With the Alpina D3 you get most of the same attributes as you do with the BMW 3 Series, but with an Alpina twist. The engine gives punchy performance as well as good economy.
Against It isn’t quite as polished to drive as a 3 Series, and you only get a two-year warranty rather than the BMW’s three-year cover. There’s also the fact it’s based on the outgoing 3 Series model.
You can’t go wrong with a car that’s so similar to the BMW 3 Series, but as good as the Alpina D3 is, the standard Three is better.

With the Alpina D3 you can order a car in any standard BMW colour. There are two basic trims, the standard one and the Lux pack, which includes sat-nav and costs more than £3000 extra. However, if you want to specify your car with a selection of personally chosen options, Alpina will charge you a Bespoke Order Charge of more than £1500. If you want a standard or Lux car with an auto gearbox, you will be charged only the cost of the auto, not the bespoke charge.
