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.

Mystery Voll Cabrio at Famous 02/02/02 Event!

UPDATE 8pm January 3 2016: Thanks to Mike Pugh in NC, we have some new info on this cabrio*!

Who can identify this Baur?  Or is it even a Baur?  :)

(No, it is NOT a Baur.)

I spotted this in one of my friend Harry Bonkosky's  photo albums, which I believe are pics from the famous 02/02/02  gathering at BMW's Spartanburg headquarters.

I did check with my friend, Harry.  He confirmed that these pics were taken at the 02/02/02 event, but he did have any details on this particular Baur cabrio.  
SoI put it out to the Baur Community at large:  does anyone know this Cabrio?  I am confident that someone out there has info.  


These last two pics were also in that particular album of Harry's, adding support to the fact that these pics are from the 02/02/02 event in South Caroilina.

OK, folks!  Any help on this will be greatly appreciated!  Perhaps those hood-mounted rear view mirrors, as well as the paint color, will be helpful in jogging someone's recollection of this Baur cabrio!  

Stay tuned! 

UPDATE 1/13/2016 8pm:  Thank you Mike Pugh for these pics and info!

 Thank you, Mike!  Wow!  Great stuff!  We are closing in on this elusive cabrio!  We now have a
 pic of the driver (at the time), we can see that it is a 2002, and we have a pic of the plate!  

Do you see why I  love this stuff so much?    We are having too much fun!
