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.

You Are There 1984: Gray Market Cars

Here is an article from the January 1984 issue of Der Bayerische that gives some insight into what gray market cars of the time had to go through to get legally registered in the US.  It does indicate, btw, that the cost of 'federalizing' a gray market car was in the $5000+ range. That was a significant add-on to the cost of the car at the time.
