Alpina B3 Touring 2020 UK review

  Alpina B3 Touring 2020 UK review Buchloe's take on the BMW M340i Touring is a 456bhp, 516lb ft super-estate that melds finesse and ferocity to astonishing effectTake it as read that the 3 Series Touring now feels ideally sized for fast family-car duties. There’s plenty of space inside and you get a real sense of maturity on the move, but the car avoids the occasional awkwardness that comes with driving something as large as the 5 Series Touring – or Alpina’s V8-engined B5 Touring – through towns and along B-roads.

Gervais should have been playing a residency at the Palladium this month but instead last night’s outing was a chance to spice up his show SuperNature with new material. Netflix has already snapped up his set.

Provocative gags about wokeness, mental illness, paedophile teachers, Aids and transgender issues sped past, yet it was hard to stay offended for too long when there was no malice intended. This was humour with a heavy coating of irony.

At times the joking did succumb to juvenilia. A punchline involving a Chinese accent was barely worthy of Benny Hill, although a smirk between swigs of lager suggested that he knew it.

Hopefully there will be more relatively intimate dates or, if you are really easily offended, wait for the Netflix version that might have the thornier edges knocked off.
