Fantastic, really great. Congratulations. It would look perfect up front with some OEM ambers. I used to own one, no matter how modern cars get they still cant achieve the feeling that you get inside that car. You guys have all the nice E30's over there lol.

Many thanks - orange indicator lenses on order & should be with me soon...
Your right, no modern car can compete with how the E30 M3 makes you feel

What exactly is it, and Evo or Alpina? I don't get the badge on the grill.

The Evo is hands down my favorite M3, black with red bumper strips. Gaaaaaaaaaa...

Is it a real B6 3.5S? If so, I am really impressed as it is great to see something so rare. The powerful and smooth 3.5 litre straight six-cylinder engine mixed with the handling capabilities of the M3.

Nice, but it has some rake going on.

Unfortunatley, she is not a genuine B6 3.5s. She is a standard black E30 M3 with an Alpina B6 engine. The previous german owner had restored the car and went with the Alpina replica look. The red bumper stripes were also added which I like - the interior isnt what I would of chosen but if you can find me an Alpina interior, please let me know! in the meantime they are cream recaros in A1 conditon - the rear seats i dont think have ever been sat in...

This is probably about as close as I could get to the ultimate E30 M3 on my budget - I dont think there are any even for sale right now... Thanks for your comments good / bad

Haha, careful not to be positive without a caveat!

Great car, congratulations.

How much can one look to pay for a true B6 3.5s?

You'd never find one, but if you did you'd be looking at $40K or $50K+. It think there were only about 60 made. I don't know if they were ever imported originally to North American, so they'd probably be gray market cars.

Only 62 Alpina M3's were ever made from August 1986 and December 1990.
