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.

OMG Department! Official Press Launch 2002 Cabrio Targa For Bargain Sale in Ireland

UPDATE 4/22/2015:  Thanks to Nick V. in France, we have learned this Baur has been sold..... and we have some info about the new owner!*  
Thanks Nick!  

65 K!  Colorado!  Official Press launch car!  OMG!  Price: € 10,000!  Day um! 

($10,783USD)   !!!!!!!!

Our Man in Ireland, Barry F. has come through BIG TIME with this one!  Wow!

Twin ti carbs!  Check out the original alloy wheels! Did I mention that it is Colorado?  If all of the above checks out as legit..... can there be a bigger bargain on earth?

This is a very rare round rear light Cabriolet . This is not only no 11 of 260 made but it was the official press launch car. It has been in my private collection for over ten years , dry stored and maintained by a local mechanic. 
It still has its original well known registration of PYW 5L and still resplendent in its original colour of Colorado Orange.
The Mileage of 65K is believed genuine. The car also features the rare Ti twin carbs making the car sound incredible and superb to drive .
There was a new hard and soft top fitted during its restoration in the UK just prior to my purchase.
The alloy wheels are original and in fantastic condition and the tyres have 90% left.

If the seller's claims about this car can be verified..... OK, forget it!  I want this car!  :) 

This is potentially a very collectible item.... and a bargain to boot!

Thank you, Barry!

N.B.  It appears that there are references to THREE 2002 Baurs in this short forum thread!  Are any of our Baursppotters members of that forum?  Perhaps we can make contact with the owners!!
