Product Overview

Alpina B3 E90 is an compact executive sedan in production from 2007 to 2013. It was available with a modified version of the N54B30 3.0-liter bi-turbo inline-6 engine that powered the E90 BMW 335i/xi.
The standard Alpina B3 E90 was called the B3 Bi-Turbo. It featured upgraded internals and an Alpina ECU. Several other parts of the car were also upgraded.
In 2010, Alpina further added a more aggressive version of the B3. Named B3 S, it received further upgrades in the same direction.
Drivers who appreciate handling should keep in mind that the Alpina B3 E90 uses MacPherson front suspension, which doesn't provide the best cornering performance.
