Alpina Threes have been going since the first incarnation of the model back in the late 1970s so the E46 3-series was destined to receive special attention. The E46 Alpina was launched with the B3 3.3 Cabrio which had dropped the Convertible moniker and now with 280 bhp. Finally in July 2002 Alpina took the big six a bit further and created the 3.4 litre and 305 bhp for what is simply called the B3 S Cabrio.
