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.

Table of US BMW 2002 VIN Numbers

UPDATE:  November 25,2014:   This page now includes a link to a VIN Decoder that should work for ALL 1600 and 2002 models from around the world!*  Thank you to Club BMW 2002 Colombia!  See below!

This is just intended as a reference table for VIN numbers for US 1600 and 2002 BMWs from 1967-75.

Here is a example of how to use it, using my recently purchased 1973 2002 VIN 2587821:
Scroll down to where you see the line in red below.
Here is that line:
Mod 711973Jan-73Aug-732-587-3082-593-7046397

There were 6397 Mod 71 2002s built from Jan 73 to August 73, including mine #2587821.

I found this table here:

  2. Here's the online VIN number decoder. It shows factory options and extended tech info.

  3. Thank you, Andy. However that VIN decoder requires 17 digit VINs, and the older cars (2002s, for example) only have a 7 digit VIN.) :)

  4. The table is not quite accurate, though close. My VIN tag #166051 is a 1968 2002 with a build feb-68, dec-68 range so outside the table values above. BTW, here is a VIN lookup that takes our old numbers: http://bmwclasicos.com/vin.php

  5. Thanks, Jan. We updated that post to include the bmwclasicos site last November 25, 2014. Check the last line of the post. :)

  6. I believe Vinaudit can decode vins which are released since 1981. You might want to check out this video too to understand vin decoding: https://youtu.be/V2qs-j0heeM

  7. Please let me know the year of the car with the VIN NUMBER 1552736 and wich Modell is ...1602 , 1802 , 2002 , 2002 Ti , 2002 Tii, 2002 Turing ?????or anythig else ???Thank you .George
