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.

E30 Gullwing Baur

I found this while searching some German sites.

De gustibus non disputandum.
(There's no accounting for taste.  Mark Twain)

But here it is anyway.  An unusual E30, and an unusual Baur. 

BMW 316i Cabrio  of Thomas Luhrsen

The basis for this conversion is a former-316i Cabrio. The engine is in original condition. I have my red monster lowered 60mm at the front and 40mm at the rear axle. The attachments and side skirts, rear apron, Kofferaumdeckelerhebung are made ​​of sheet steel and welded to the vehicle. The doors are shortened and modified E30 original parts. The taillights are from a '89 Audi V8. The third brake light on the Trunk is from Cadylac. The interior is trimmed in blue gsammte synthetic leather.
For hi-fi system:
Blaupunkt Berlin RCM303a with CD changer, navigation, 2x color TV, VCR, phone and camera in the rear lights. The music performance can be specified with about 800 watts. Furthermore, a digital dashboard from the Kadett GSI has been installed. ATZ wheels with 205 front and rear with size 225 tires were mounted. An extensive Schowbeleuchtung completes the whole.

Here are some pics taken during a Baur Factory Tour in Stuttgart in 2002.
