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.

Louisiana: 1984 BMW 323i Baur TC For Sale - $6500

UPDATE February 20, 2016:   Andy has informed me today that he is reducing his asking price to $4500!  

1984 BMW Baur TC for sale - $6500 (Natchitoches)

Our friend and fellow Baur owner, Andy in Louisiana, has decided to part with his 1984 TC2 Baur.  The car is located near Shreveport.  It is a 323i, btw.

It appears that this may be Baur B42035*, but we await confirmation from Andy to be sure.  Baur 42035 is listed the International Baur Registry.  See pics below.

Seller's comments:
"The Baur TC was a factory authorized convertible conversion Rare euro version in driving condition.
$6500 or best offer or interesting trades considered. The color is burgundrot. 

Baur is a Karosserie or coachbuilder in Stuttgart, Germany, which has been building BMW convertibles since the 1930s. In 1971 they began production of the safer "targa" style body with the 2002. (Targa was a registered Porsche name, so they had to call it something else) Originally an aftermarket option available through BMW dealers, the E21 3-series TC1 was built with full factory authorization, and covered in the factory warranty. The roll-bar version or "Top Cabrio" (TC) continued with the E30 TC2 even after Baur developed the BMW E30 Convertible design for BMW, and which BMW built.

Baur produced about 1000 e30 Baurs per year for 10 years. There are a number in the US that were personally imported. I bought this one from California on eBay. I've never seen another e30 Baur TC in person in the US. Baurspotting website has more information and a map of e21 and e30 Baurs.

I've owned the car for about 5 years. Mechanically I've given the car a tune up( wires, spark plugs, rotar, distributor cap)
New front tie rods
Replaced shocks 1/2 shafts
Returned to stock ride with oem springs and new shocks
Fixed odometer about 10,000 miles ago. It was broken when I purchased car, so mileage is not accurate. 
Dash has a couple of cracks
Front seats have holes
rear seat is fine
Blinkers do not switch off automatically. 
Tops work fine, but rear section has small tear. 
Has BBS rear spoiler
Has BMW e30 IS front spoiler, not currently attached
Some minor spare parts included

Mechanically the car is pretty solid. It would benefit from a paint job, dash, and seat covers. 

I'm not a mechanic but I'll try to answer your questions as best as I can. I'm sure I missed some of the good and the bad. If interested, you should come inspect and drive it yourself." 


Good luck with your sale, Andy!
