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.

BMW 2002ti Diana:  the rarest of the rare.  only twelve built, perhaps 4 remain in existence.  This is one of them.  

Why is this appearing in Baurspotting?  They were all built at the Baur factory in Stuttgart!  They are Baurs!

Here is a short summary from the Macartney 2002 book:

Retired BMW racer Hubert Hahne became a BMW dealer in Dusseldorf.
He had bought his wife the actress Dianna Korner a specially equipped 2002 as a wedding present. The car attracted considerable attention. So Hahne was persuaded to make a luxury edition of the 2002Tii, with BMW's permission.

These 12 cars 1 690 201 to 1 690 212 were all different colors and had different interiors, non of the colors were standard 2002 colors. The conversion work was done by Baur.

Diana specs. Electric sunroof- Leather upholstery, Recaro front seats.
Black vinyl headliner. -Velor carpet and boot lining- Leather binding for the carpets.-Black vinyl lining for the boot lid.- leather gaiters for the gear lever and handbrake.- chromed handbrake lever- aluminum tread plates on the door sills- Front and rear overriders- Becker stereo radio- laminated windscreen- heated rear window- ammeter and clock- special silver grille- twin headlamps - chromed covers for the bumper bolts- special exhaust-
sebring type driver's side mirror.

Hahne introduced the Diana in the spring of 1971, at a price of 22,500 DM; almost twice what a standard Ti cost. the first 5 sold quickly- the last sold at the end of 1971.
