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.

"http://classicandvintagebmw.tumblr.com/02targa     (check this site for more info on Baur Targa)
Car was imported into the USA in April of 2007.  Mileage at the date of sale was 92,250. Prior to purchase, the engine ,suspension and brakes were rebuilt by Jaymic in England. I have many of the old receipts (new clutch, brake calipers, etc.) from Jaymic as well the original owner’s manuals, etc. These repairs were made at round the 85k mileage mark and are documented in repair log.
The interior was professionally re-done and a new German square weave carpet kit was installed by the new owner in Los Gatos,CA. During the installation of the carpet , he located a 1962 Italian Lira(coin) under the old carpet kit. That helped to confirm that the car spent its early days in Italy.  The coin has been drilled and is attached to the vintage BMW leather key chain along with the original  keys and aftermarket gas cap key."

"The car was re-painted some time in England by the previous owner, the paint still looks good. Only on the hood I can see small bubble paint. The car has some small micro scratches.
A new Apline CDA-9883 in-dash w/removable face CD/MP3 receiver(xm/Sirius satellite ready) with iPod connection along with Alpine under dash speakers were installed in September 2007. Door panels and rear passenger panels were not cut.
Routine lube, oil & filer changes have been made every 3k miles. Weber carburetor (replaced the Solex) and Pertonix electronic ignition were installed in 08/2010 mileage 98,075.
Current mileage is 99,923. Tires are 80% good. Car has a Nardi steering wheel and Cosmic wheels. Dome light too. All lights, turn signals, brake lights, fog lights and rear bumper mounted brake light work. Windshield and all windows are clean/clear and Sonneland rear window on the convertible Targa top is clean/clear as well. I also have an extra windshield that has been wrapped in bubble wrap.
Most recent service by Import Doctors in Seattle- 01/2013. Lube, synthetic oil & filter, new water pump and coolant. Mileage at service-99,463.
You are welcome to do pre-purchase inspection before the auction ends. I had described the car in best of my knowledge, please ask any questions. I trust this car to go cross-country but the car is sold “AS IS” without any warranty.
This vehicle will only go up in value. This is the only one the I  come across.  

Note: I'm releasing this vehicle back to sale, due to previous buyer made an offer and didn't go through with his offer. If you make an offer and I except the offer please have your funds ready to pay for the vehicle. "

I am hoping that we can contact the seller soon!  We have been searching for this car for about a year!  Check out our previous posts on this car!




Stay tuned!
