No Alpina's should ever be inflicted with a DIEsel engine.  End of.  It's like buying an M5 then worring about fuel consumption and converting it to LPG, but worse.
 
If I can remember, it didn't get a very good write up in a car mag I've read when it had been on long term road test.

I see. Do you remember which magazine? You see I am interested in the car and trying to get as much info as I can.

Probably a Top Gear mag.  Can't remember which issue.
 
Can't be that difficult to google a road test report for that car.
