Okay, I’ve been on a run of drop-top BMWs recently, and the Alpina B3 3.0 Cabriolet had me wondering – what’s the ideal spec for an E36 convertible? I think I may have found it. This last-model-year convertible we’re looking at today is a European-specification model, which means it’s got the 321 horsepower 3.2-liter S50 with individual throttle bodies. Great! It’s also got a hardtop, the interior isn’t black, and it’s got the forged Style 24s. Wow! To top it off, though? Yeah, it was run through BMW’s Individual department and came out the other side in Violet Blue Metallic. Oh, and it’s only got 46,000 miles, and seems surprisingly affordable given all these factors. Why? Let’s check it out!
