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.

Terry Sayther's Red Cabrio Targa For Sale in Texas!

In a post in Facebook today, Terry Sayther mentioned that he has a couple of cars for sale, including two Baurs;  this Cabrio Targa, and a 1600 Voll Cabrio.

(see http://baurspotting.blogspot.com/2016/04/terry-saythers-1969-bmw-1600-voll.html)

Here is the Cabrio Targa, a 1975 2002.   I love the write up Terry did on this Cabrio Targa, so I have included it here in its entirety!  Nothing more needs to be said!

Baurspotting has featured Terry Sayther's Baurs before, btw*.

1975 Baur Bodied BMW Targa Cabriolet
Hi-perf Euro Engine, 5-speed Trans, Big Brakes, Injection
"I like unusual BMWs and the Baur Targa Cabrio 2002 certainly fits that category. The Targa is the best car for driving in Texas, in my opinion. I can drop the rear folding top with one arm from the driver’s seat and still have shade from the fixed roof. This car has fuel injection from an ’85 318i and the high energy ignition from the same car—it gets gret gas mileage, always starts, wonderful throttle response, and good power. We installed big brakes, Bilsteins, and bigger sway bars—this car is my favorite car to drive!
Rare Factory Baur Targa ConvertibleThis car is a rare factory Targa Cabriolet. Made for BMW in the BAUR factory, it has a hard top over the driver and front seat passenger. That cover comes off and stows in special brackets in the trunk. It also has a folding soft top over the back seat area—the driver just reaches one hand back to lower it at any speed.It as a very powerful 2 liter M10 engine–normal for 2002s but with higher compression for better performance. We have installed a 5-speed overdrive trans because BMW should have; we have installed bigger brakes front and rear, Bilstein shocks all the way around, bigger sway bars, a front air dam, fancy wheels, and more.This is my personal car—my favorite car to drive of all my cars. It does have some rust and, though I love the color, the paint is bad. The car was originally golf yellow.The Targa is the best of both worlds—open and closed. Someone will get one of the loves of my life by buying this car for $25k or near offer.To arrange delivery email terndeb@saytherauto.com, do NOT call to chat".


I love that write-up!  My sentiments exactly!
