1982 BMW 323i Baur

1982 BMW 323i Baur
Memorial Day 2010 First Drive 1982 323i BMW Baur Lapisblau M20 5 speed #4154 of 4595 made. The car was imported to California by Dietel Enterprises. I have since changed the wheels, installed the clear turn signal lenses, and I am in the process of installing a new cabriolet roof. I have to do something about those bumpers, too. :) I love this car! To see one of the reasons why, check my post "Score One For the Good Guys" on 6/26/2011.

Baurspotter of the Week Award!

Baurspotter of the Week Award to bimmerforums member HenryHide1886 for messaging me about a Baur he spotted in a showroom window at Moran Motors, Berkeley, CA.

751 Folger Avenue
Berkeley, CA 94710
Phone: 510-548-7171

Click on "Sales".


You will see a pic of their inventory inside the showroom. Looking at the pic on the left side.... the third car from the bottom is a dark green E21 Baur! That is what HenryHide1886 saw!

The car can also be seen in a shot from outside the front of the showroom. Click on "Map".


In the pic, just to the left of the map you can see the showroom window.... and you can just make out the distinctive amber turn signal and the bumper-mounted side reflector of the E21 Baur.

I will see if I can get more info on this, but in the meantime, thanks to HenryHide1886 for a great find!

Update:  Google 795 Ashby Street, Berkeley CA.  Go to "Street View".  You will see a BMW dealer on one side of the street.  Zoom around to the opposite side of the street where you will see Moran Motorsport. Zoom in close to the showroom window and you will clearly see the distinctive roll-bar pillar of the dark green Baur!
