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.

Tedster Spots Baur #70 in Hungary!


Our friend Ted Kalman (host of Tedfest in Ontario, Canada) is visiting relatives in Hungary this month, and he just sent us these pics of a Baur he spotted in the neighborhood.  Nice find, Tedster:  looks like a very good example with a very low Baur number:  #70! 

Here are Ted's comments:
Driving to a cousin's house and I came across this 1978 BMW 318 4 speed with 150,000KM. An old Hungarian gentleman came out to talk to me about the car that originally came from a german owner and he did not want to sell it to me. It's #70 and in very good condition. The interior was redone in black and red old Recaro's. I loved it! Tedster

Here are a couple of pics of Baur #70 from the International Baur Registry, apparently when it was still registered in Germany:

Thanks again, Ted, and enjoy your trip! 

*Small Baur World Update:  we know this Baur!  Our friends spotted this Baur two years ago..... but we didn't know the owner! You nailed it, Ted!  Baurspotter of the Week: The Tedster,  Ted Kalman!  Here is the post from 2015:
