As the title says, has anyone in the UK done the Alpina B3 flash on a 135i,
if so how do you think it changes the drive for everyday driving ?

Cheers
Baz

Update on this, had mine running the flash now for 3 weeks and all I can say is its great for me, might not be everyone's choice but I love it.
I do a lot of London/Town driving, the way it changes gear so quickly in "D" mode is so super smooth its like the big old 500sl merc I had, you are in 5th gear before you know it, these cars have so much torque you do not need to rev the car hard driving around town, my fuel economy has jumped from 18mpg to 22mpg around town.

Not had the car at the track yet but I have been on a few motorways and foot to the floor, let the car change gear it self, when it changes gear it is now very quick and solid right to redline :-). In "M" mode it is superb, change down rev matching is good, changing up is now with a thump at full throttle and high revs, you now know the torque converter is working.

Hope to be at Santa Pod on Sat 3rd May (track open till 8pm) to see what the difference is.
