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.

UPDATE: Rare US Spec Baur in Vancouver Price Drop!

Thanks to our friend, and fellow Baur owner Eric B. in LA for the heads up on this rare US Spec Baur for sale by our friend Nikos in Vancouver.  We posted the sale last month* when the asking price was $14,500, and it has now dropped to $11,900!

N.B.  This Baur is one of 25 US Spec Baurs that BMW officially imported to North America, 22 of which went to Canada.  It is worth noting that Eric, who spotted this new ad, is ALSO the owner of one of those 25 Baurs!  Eric owns one of only 3 of those 25 that came to the US! And what a Baur THAT is!  Stay tuned, we will have more on that special Baur soon!**

This is Jeroen's list of the 25 US Spec Baurs that BMW officially imported to North America. Scroll down the second column from the left (Baur NR) and you will see "72522".  That is this car.  


** Here is a post we did in October on the Baur that Eric owns.  But that is only 1/2 of the story!  what I SHOULD say is that is the Baur the Eric owns AGAIN!  More on that story soon!  This is a story that I have been sitting on for YEARS---seriously!--- at Eric's request.  He has now given me the go-ahead to post it, so..... stay tuned!  It is a great story involving not only a rare---- and very special ---- US Spec Baur, but also a cross-country search for a mystery Baur, and even a tie-in to BMW legend Ron Perry!

Sheesh!  That lead-in even got ME excited about the story!   I can only hope to do it justice, so give me a little time to get it together!


Oh, yes, before I forget, here is the link to the current ad for the Baur in Vancouver with the lowered price:  :)
