2003 BMW Alpina Convertible 2dr Roadster (4.8L 8cyl 5A)


Review

The Z8 Alpina was purchased by me a month ago, used (of course), with 2,900 original owner miles. It was and is as new, since I have only added a few hundred miles in the month I've owned it. But I already know that it is an extraordinarily fun roadster/GT to drive quickly and that the styling will keep my affection forever. The 4.8 litre Alpina V8 has a wonderful, muffle rumble at idle and sounds like no other car I've owned when pressed. I am fortunate to have other fabulous cars, and would not own this if it was to be my only vehicle. But as a great, personal sport roadster, it is more reliable and less screaming for attention than a Ferrari. Elegant, sexy, reliable and smart.


Best Features

The styling is more attention-getting than I might want, but definitely not in a "cheap" or scissors-door or bling way. It is rolling art. And it offers the practical reliability of a well- sorted and engineered machine with great performance capabilities.


Worst Features

Automatic air conditioning would have been nice, as would the other lazy comforts to which I aspire (memory seats). But, really, there is little to complain about. Only 555 were completed in the series so "running improvements" to the Alpina Roadster weren't an option.

If you feel self conscious about people looking at you, don't get this car.

Create a retractible roof and I will trade my Z8 for the new one, otherwise I will keep this for ever

Review

This is the sexiest and best designed car I have seen since the early to mid 60's. It is a WOW car! It screams and handles like a tight machine. There is very little if anything lacking. It is a keeper and good luck finding one!


Best Features

Style and design. An incredible machine.


Worst Features

Leave it alone.
