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.

UK EBay Classified Ad: BMW 318 BAUR CABRIOLET in Ipswich, UK

Here is yet another Baur that I found on UK ebay today!  This is a Classified ad, btw, not an auction.  


Ipswich, UK 
Classified Ad price:

Contact the seller:

This Baur 318Ci Manual has the original service book and a stack of invoices from the same BMW main dealer in Colchester.
I will describe the condition as honestly as possible...


A1 with no issues due to the car being looked after and serviced properly all it's life.


No serious rust anywhere that I can see. The owner had 2 new front wings fitted around 2 - 3 years ago. The paintwork all around the car is bright and shiny . There are a few marks here and there I.E a small dent ( thumbnail size ) in bonnet, some scratches on the boot lid.

Very clean and all in perfect order except for the front seats which do have quite a few pulls in the cloth. All electrics work as they should, windows, mirrors etc.

Both sections are in perfect condition with no water ingress. The rear screen is milky and requires treating or replacing it is not cracked.

The car really does drive well and feels tight with a more modern feel than you would expect.

So all in all a really good everyday useable classic that would not take very much work to make pristine.

Please feel free to contact us if you require any further information. You can call me up to 9pm seven days a week.

Alpina Tribute (?) 323i in the UK from Ambrose McCabe!

Ambrose McCabe in the UK sent us these pics a while back, which unfortunately got buried in the files.  I came across the pics today, so here they are.  I am not sure what the status of this Baur is at present, since Ambrose spotted these pics a couple of months ago.  But we will try to track that info down.  As you can see, it has some apparent Alpina features, but since there are no authenticated Alpina Baurs that we know of, they are undoubtedly just add-ons.  

Here are Ambrose's comments:
 Hi mate thanks for all your help! Out of interest, how much do you think it's worth? It needs a lot of attention (to the tune of about £10,000) with regards to rust on the sills, near side chassis leg and I couldn't even check the boot so Lord knows that'll probably be shot through...I think mint condition the 323 would fetch near £10-15k if you're lucky, but I've only experience with e34's. Cheers
 Note the Alpina C1 2.3 badge on the grille.  Decoration?  False advertising?  ;)

Genuine Alpina rims?  Hmmm.  ;) 

We would love to know more about this Baur, particularly the Baur number.  

So stay tuned!

Thanks, Ambrose!
