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.

BMW 2002tii Mobile Tradition Restoration: VIDEOS!

The Hits Keep Coming!


"The plan was to bring the BMW 2002 tii back to life using available spare parts, on the basis that Mobile Tradition - the BMW Group's heritage division - is today still able to provide some 90 per cent of all components for the BMW 02."

This was a cool project... to reconstruct an iconic BMW 2002 using only parts scrounged  from spare parts bins.  OK, granted, BMW has some huge parts bins, no doubt.  But the point is well taken:  BMW recognizes the value of history and tradition, and it makes good business sense to spend some time catering to the collector and hobby car industry.  That is good news for all of us!

Now here are the Videos!!
