The BMW 3 Series Coupe has again earned the Edmunds.com Best Retained Value® award for the $35K-$45K Coupe category. Edmunds determined each model’s competitive segment based on body type and sales-weighted average manufacturer suggested retail price of all available styles of that model’s body type. Edmunds.com’s Best Retained Value® Awards for 2013 recognize brands and models that have the highest projected residual value after five years.

Consumer Reports has issued its latest Best & Worst Used Cars report (for April 2013) and the 2009 BMW E90 328i sedan has been named the best sedan in the $20,000-$25,000 category. It shares the top pick with the 2009 Infiniti G and the 2010 Toyota Avalon.

Here is some footage of Alpina’s B3 GT3 limited edition (of 99), which is based on the Alpina B3 S Bi-Turbo, but with 8 more HP. Re-designing sections of the exhaust system and installing a new enhanced Akrapovic rear silencer increased output in the B3 GT3 by this 8 HP. The direct petrol injected N54 engine delivers a total power output of 408hp at 6000rpm and 540Nm of torque at 4500rpm.

The Alpina B3 GT3 sprints from 0-62mph (0-100kmh) 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 192mph (309kmh), which the driver, Sport Auto’s test drive editor Christian Gebhardt, hits in this video.
