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.

Rare Bird: E21 US Spec Baur For Sale--- 1 of 25 Imported to North America by BMW!

Thanks to our friend, David M.  for spotting this Rare Bird on Craigs List in LA!  This is Baur #4587, one of the only 25 US Spec Baurs imported to North America by BMW back in the day!  We have posted about it several times before, going back to when it was first spotted in Virginia in 2010. We were unable to locate it at that time, however, until it turned up 3 years later in California*.

This is an opportunity to own a piece of automotive history, folks, and one of the rarest Baurs in the world!  It appears to be in pretty good condition.
