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.

Wrecked Baur at Auction! 1982 BMW 320I REPAIRABLE


UPDATE:  I just spoke to Copart Auctions.  They checked and found that there is NO Baur plate on the car.  So, either the plate has disappeared (perhaps from the front end hit) or perhaps this is another conversion done by American Sunroof Company, under license to Baur.  You may recall that rigmaster in NC has an example of their work, American Sunroof Company #001.   (See 'Baur TC1s in the US' thread in E21 bimmerforums, page 3.)

Thanks to Chris M. in Facebook E21 Legion for this link:
