    Any experiences when removing and replacing the rear spoiler? I understand there is a real risk the threads may be seized up and the captive nuts will need replacing in the fibreglass body of the wing.

    Hi. I fitted a 2001 replacement speedo unit to my 1997 alpina B10 and it worked fine after coding, except that the water temperature gauge goes to full hot deflection (when the engine is still cold) as soon as the ignition is turned on. I have been told that it is due to the later cars having a...

    Hello All. My first post (from long time lurker) and a birthday one so please be nice! My B10 V8 has started pinking badly. The idle is rythmically rough. In neutral the pinking is heard from maybe 2000rpm and gets worse as the revs rise, like a bag o' bolts. In drive it starts from lower in...

    Help needed. I need to replace the LWR module located in the carrier behind the glove box. I have removed the glove box but the module fouls the metal work and will not quite disengage from the carrier. Anyone know how to free the carrier enough to remove the module? If I could drop the carried...

    I have a problem with the nearside headlight. We worked out that it was the HID/Ballast unit that was at fault. Have got a new replacement one, not original BMW part but description was the correct output etc. I contacted the guy who assured me it should work ok. So got my local garage to fit it...

    Hi, I have been watching a 1999 Alpina B10 thats been for sale at a garage near me (i think it may be a sale or return car) - It started off at 5k then very quickly went to 6K - Having oviously had little interest at the inflated price, it has now dropped back to 5k. Before i view tomorrow i...

    Hi all, I haven't been on here for ages and apologies for that. The water pump on my b10 4.6 v8 has decided it's had enough and with a lot of searching around I'm unsure which make to go for. I would like to go for oem but not over the stealers counter for obvious reasons so my question is:-...

    My first post! Hello! Well, thought I would check the outputs on the BMW Business RDS unit on my new (to me) Alpina, as rear speakers not working (tried fader!). Supposed to be very quick: remove volume knob, twist allen head 1/4 turn CCW and out it pops. Well, it didn't pop out. Fiddled more...

    Hi all I've just had my bonnet replaced and noticed the gap between the grill and bonnet is larger than it was with the old bonnet. You can place your finger into the gap! Cam anyone advise? Do I need to push the middle part further down to close the gap?

    Hello, I have a 1999 E39 Alpina B10 3.2 – not long bought it, but having a few issues with what I can only assume is a TPS sensor. The car is sometimes difficult to start (hot or cold), and seems to default to a base throttle map: you can actually hear and feel the difference when it's running...

    On my E39 Alpina B10 3.3, the aux fan (the one in front of the rad) is on all the time, regardless of water temp or the air con being on. Is this normal - looking at previous threads on the fan, it seems tha it should only come on if needed in hot weather or if the air con is being used. Also...
