thier product was never really sold in NA except rims, body kits. It will cost you a fortune to bring any Alpina engine from europe. I'm guessing minimum $20000

Alpina was pretty crazy into racing back in the 70's and 80's. Their street cars were always expensive and offered serious power gains and stiff ass suspension. Now they are more leaning towards luxury than sport driving. Thier B3S only comes in auto and the Z8 Alpina only comes with auto too. Personally interms of euro BMW tuners I like Hartge the best. Just look at some of their vehicles.

did you also know that Alpina is a wine producer

Yea, i never heared much of Alpina engines, then again its not everyday you run into a Alpina bimmer.

Well I ain't in canada but I can say I own one of the most notorious and sought after Alpina Super cars of all times....

The B10 Bi-turbo




Then I have the same motor powering my E30 M3 to over 600+ RWHP and almost 700 ftlbs RWTRQ
