How to check if my 2002 is a real alpina ?


Recommended Posts

need photos and motor number

Many! close-up photos all over

and would it be too much to ask

for a Bill Of Sale with Alpine stationary?

such a thing did exist on real ones.

could be like the Hertz Rental Shelby Mustang?

Only 1,385 were made originally-

but now 1,598 are known to exist

(i made up the #s just for demonstration purpose)

DescriptionReader ReviewsAlpina tuning parts was set up in 1965 after the successful conversion on the 1500 saloon. During the 1960s and 1970s the company grew and was soon acknowledged as the leading performance conversion specialist for the marque. Later the only way that Alpina could keep within emissions control and noise regulation was to build the cars themselves. During the 1980s re-engineered cars were built at Buchloe. By their nature these bespoke cars are rare. This book contains contemporary road tests, model introductions, driving impressions, technical data and comparison tests. Models covered: 1600/2000, 2002, 3.0 CSL, 320i, 320, 528 Sports, 630CSi, 333i, B6, 630, B7 Turbo, 2.5CSi, B9 3.5, C1, B10, C2, C2 convertible.

"real" alpina is hard to describe. unlike the current alpina procedure which is to take possession of your new bmw once it leaves the factory and modify it, the original alpina was a set of parts you could order and install that would not void the warranty and increase it's sportiness. Especially early cars. I'm not aware of "vin plates" on any alpina. most of the time you ordered a package. Such as an A1-4 engine, gearbox, suspension, flares, etc. A 3 gauge pod dash add-on is an option but that's not to say they've never been made since. The value is usually determined by if they have any papers documenting the alpina purchase and how many packages they have. IE is it an A1 motor only? or is it an A4 with the ITB's and FI, high compression pistons, 5 spd CR box, inverted alpina shocks in the back with upgraded alpina brakes. The value of those two cars is a mile apart.

Most alpina cars are pieces of alpina parts put together and that's just how they were done.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
