Re: Re: Will annoy everyone with Alpina til I get tired of it...

Hmm..yes and no. :)

I was looking through their ETK and realise that, say the new B3 3.3, uses the same rotors as the E46 330s. But Alpina has a different part number for the calipers. I have long heard about a company in UK that manufactures the calipers exclusively for Alpina. Hence, if these calipers can fit behind the tight offset of the Softlines, then it may well be my NEXT project... :p

My next bet is that Brembo is definitely the OEM manufacturer of this big-brake kit. But the question is are these off-the-shelf or customised for Alpina?

Cos I know Sachs (shocks) and Eibach (springs) have prepared a special "Alpina Spring Table" if one decides to order the kit from Alpina.

Let me know when you're going to TEST one of these... :D
Hehe, that maybe not, but I'm preparing myself for a drive to Munich and then to Buchloe :D.

I must see that Mora Metallic in person. My dealer here in Hamburg does not have any single Mora.

Isn't it funny ?

Ohhhh...oohhh! :D When will the roadtrip be? :D Perhaps it's fated that your Hamburg dealer does not carry any Mora, so that you can take a trip down to Buchloe...opps.. Munich.:lmao:

This is perhaps the FIRST time Alpina decided to use big brake kit, painted calipers too. Looks like Mov-it brakes to me...

So is this Vinces next mod? Alpina brakes...

Don't hold back on the pictures, Alex. Take AS MANY AS you can. Heck...take a pic with Burkhard. And what the hell, take pictures of the Alpina restrooms too! I wonder if they have matching blue/green stripes on the toilet seats...:confused:
