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.

Mystery Baur in Atlanta pics frm BruceH

In December of 2010, bimmerforums member and fellow Baur owner BruceH mentioned that there was a purple Baur needing rescue in the Atlanta area.  Today, Bruce found and posted the pics of this car in bimmerforums.

Check it out.

We now know that what was once a rumor, now has form and substance. The Baur exists, or at least, it did exist in June 2007. And that is a start!

This is what we know:  there is, or at least there was in June 2007, a bluish-purple Baur at a shop in south Atlanta, Georgia. It had a single tail pipe, which makes it either an M10 or an M20 320/6. It appears to have had a tan/beige vinyl or leather interior. We know that it had a Georgia plate (1385 ADP) from DeKalb County, that it had euro bumpers, and that the license plate was mounted.euro-style, below the rear bumper. It had a trunk lip and a Zender rear skirt, and it had federal side marker lights, at least on the front.

We need to know the location, the Baur number and the owner to complete the picture. We are not there yet, but this is a huge step!

This is all great stuff!  Thanks again, Bruce, we are in your debt!  We look forward to learning more about this Baur!  Stay tuned, folks!
