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.

E21 Baur in Iran 1979 BMW E21 318 Baur TC1; The Only One?

We now know that the answer is "NO"!  This is NOT the only Baur in Iran!  :)

UPDATE:  Thanks to Smh Heidari, who tipped me off to a bunch of other Baurs in Iran, and led me to find the BMW Classic Club Iran.

This is a 2002 Baur Cabrio M2.  Here is a link to another Baur Cabrio with an M engine in Texas:

Quad headlights, like the Diana!

2002tii Cabrio

Thank you, Smh!

This Baur appeared in Facebook the other day. According to the Baur export figures, no Baurs were officially exported to Iran.

Can this be the only Baur in Iran today?  I welcome any information on this!
