      @Ethan no, infact alpina’s have often the same amount of horspower or less like the b3 wich has 50hp less than an m3. It’s not a package, they just link alpina because they sell them over bmw because they haven’t gotten thei own dealership for thei 300 something cars they build a years

    2. Ethan
      Muaj më parë

      @Turismo Alpina is something BMW does offer. You can go on the BMW website right now and spec out an Alpina B7 which is a 7 series with an Alpina package on BMW site

    3. Ethan
      Muaj më parë

      @Turismo brabus only offers mercedes tuning and vehicle package. Whether or not it is aftermarket is a different conversation. Alpina is detuned version of what the modified bmw M engine can handle but it’s more powerful

    4. Turismo
      Muaj më parë

      @Ethan yes because its detuned, no, no, no it’s not a package from bmw alpina is a standalone manufacturer. Brabus is a tuning company and it’s also not mercedes

    5. Ethan
      Muaj më parë

      @Turismo alpina is a modified version of an M. It’s the most expensive, most powerful, and most lightweight race ready package bmw has. Go to brabus and you will be blown out of the water by the merc
