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.

Here is the Baur being prepped for the show by a person we believe to be his dad.

This Baur, btw, was recently imported from Australia.  Here it is, fresh off the boat in the Port of Savannah, when it was first imported.

Congratulations to Vance Stepp, and welcome to Baurspotting!
