AutoCar UK compares driving the Alpina D3 Diesel sedan versus the newest M3 and find that while the M3 is more extreme, the refinements, high fuel-efficiency and Alpina’s ultra-premium interior make the D3 the better buy.
This car does a great job evoking the spirit of the classic BMW 2002 in a modern, technical package. The front end design is fitting for evoking the spirit, but while it is an improvement over the previous 1-series front end; it still seems to fall short of the show-stopping designs during other classic BMW design eras.
This new B6 will straighten you out! We drive the 540-hp #BMW #Alpina B6 Grand Coupe which has more of everything especially torque http://t.co/DGGGgYW4rr pic.twitter.com/Cbl8Y5p2ch — Autoweek (@AutoweekUSA) May 21, 2014
