Alpina B10 BiTurbo Touring (now for sale)

Recommended Posts

From my rapidly increasing list of Alpina wheel data...

E34 Alpina (not B10 allrad)

8.5 x 17 ET12

9.5 x 17 ET24 (These will also fit straight onto E24 and E28's)

E31 and E32 Alpina 17 inch wheels

8.5 x 17 ET12 (Same as E34)

10 x 17 ET28 (These will fit on E24/E28 with a 6mm spacer and I think will bolt straight onto an E34)

E31 Alpina 18 inch wheels

9 x 18 ET12

10.5 x 18 ET20

The last set (18 inch) are what appear to be on the B10 BiTurbo Touring in this thread and what I am after for my B10 4.6 Touring 8) I don't know how they fit, but I will fit them :mrgreen:

Just to confuse the issue still further there were options for other wheels for each of those Alpina's though.......

7.5 x 15's could be ordered and fitted to E32's and E34's; some E32 Alpina's were supplied with the E34 (8.5 & 9.5 x17) sets; sets of four 8.5 x 17's could be ordered for the E31/32/34 and a non-staggered set of four 9 x 18's could be ordered for the E31

HTH :mrgreen:

You can also squeeze E39 staggered 19's onto an E34......

Or E39 staggered 18's.....

They defo dont bolt straight on. I had them on my touring, i had to grind the casting lip off the trailing arm for it not to foul and it was fag paper clearance when done, i wasnt convinced it was OK so didnt do it, with a spacer on it looked a bit Carlos Fandango Anglia.

Thank you for the info; always better to get the full story from someone who has BTDT :-P

Here's a linky story thing.....

Which would lead me to think 10x17's fit on saloons (without spacers) but not on Tourings.

The car started life in November 1994 as a 518i Touring in Norway; it was shipped to Manhart Tuning in Germany in 1995 who seemed to have fully converted it to a B10 BiTurbo spec with full TUV approval and sent it back to Norway in March 1995. It is currently wearing the 9 & 10.5x18 E31 Alpina wheels without any spacers or modifications. The owner also owns the silver E34 M5 Touring. It had been put together with a full M5 bodykit and the owner has only recently replaced the front spoiler with an E34 Alpina spoiler.

More pics - pure BMW porn IMHO.

Looks stunning.

Now Mr Fan, we just need to find some donor parts and someone with a 4.6 Alpina to create a really unique item?

Just asked a mate of mine if he's still building his...

He bought a written of E34 Alpina B10 Bi-turbo, then sourced a top spec E34 525i sport touring from Holland to give it a transplant. Thing is he has a bit of a car problem and can't seem to stop buying projects ;)

NE61755 is registered in Norway as a BMW with the 518i VIN. I would says only Alpina can change the VIN to an Alpina VIN.

It is a nice car but it isn't an Alpina. It's an 518i Touring with Alpina B10 BiTurbo drivetrain, the frontspoiler is from a B10 4,0 or 4,6 and the wheels is from a E31.

I got offered a B10 BiTurbo saloon as a straight swap for the 4.6 Touring but decided against it - but a BiTurbo Touring would be something else......

I give the Alpina BiTurbo Victoria Cross, to Mr Bumbla - resurrecting his mechanical woes after a short term ownership.
