ALPINA Sport Suspension

The ALPINA Sport Suspension ensures superior handling in every driving situation. Springs from Eibach as well as bump stops and specifically adapted stabilisers come into play for a more balanced and harmonious set-up. The BMW ALPINA D3 S is very composed and stable, offering tactile feedback when cornering dynamically. The three the Variable Damper Control modes COMFORT+, COMFORT and SPORT offer a wide range of driving experiences ranging from maximum ride comfort for everyday use to pronounced agility and lateral dynamics.

Variable sports steering

The variable sports steering system provides the driver with three steering modes: COMFORT Mode with a focus on smooth directional stability with a high sense of safety even at high speeds, as well as SPORT and SPORT+ Mode for maximum responsiveness and precision.

Custom-made ultra-high-performance tyres

Two wheel and tyre combinations were developed specifically for the new BMW ALPINA 3 Series models: an ALPINA DYNAMIC 19” alloy wheelset featuring a 5x4 spoke design and an ALPINA CLASSIC 20” forged wheelset with traditional 20-spoke design and lockable wheel hub cover. In cooperation with the tyre experts at Pirelli, the Pirelli P Zero ultra-high performance tyres marked ALP were carefully developed to meet the requirements of this new model generation and provide maximum grip.

High-performance brakes

The ALPINA brake system, comprising four-piston fixed brake callipers with brake discs of 395 mm diameter on the front axle, carried-over from the powerful 608 hp BMW ALPINA B5 Bi-Turbo, and floating brake callipers with brake discs of 345 mm diameter on the rear axle, offer excellent braking performance.

Limited-slip differential as standard

The drivetrain includes an electronically controlled rear axle limited-slip differential as standard for enhanced driving dynamics, offering pure driving pleasure. The BMW ALPINA D3 S dynamically corners with a rear-wheel drive emphasis and the increased power transfer and traction allow particularly dynamic acceleration out of corners.
