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.

Nikos' Baur 2522: Found Another Baur From Jeroen's List!

We have an exciting announcement to make today.  You may recall over the past couple of years that we have made reference to the fact that so few E1 TC1 Baurs were ever officially imported into the US by BMW.  As best as we can determine that number is :  3!  That is correct!  Only 3 TC1 Baurs are known to have been imported to US dealers by BMW.

That information came from Jeroen J, Baur Guru from The Netherlands, and it was contained on the list that you see below.  This is the list of the 25 TC1 Baurs that BMW imported to North America, and you can that most of them went to Canada (Kanada).

We have been trying to track down all of the 25 cars on that list.  I am pleased to announce that we have found another one!  Well, actually, he found US, technically!  Welcome to Nikos M. of Canada, who contacted me this week through the Baurspotting Facebook page!  He is the owner of Baur 2522 (above), and here is a pic of his Baur plate!

He contacted me after seeing the list of 25, and spotting his Baur number there!

Here is Jeroen's list of 25 TC1 Baurs officially imported to North America by BMW:
You can find Nikos' Baur listed in the middle of the list, in the Baur Nr column '72522".

Nikos Baur is not yet listed in either of the International Baur Registries, so it qualifies as a NEW FIND!  Here are the links to the two registries:



Here are the rest of the pics sent by Nikos:

Thank you, Nikos, and welcome to our Baur community!

Stay tuned for an update on the other Baurs from Jeroen's list of 25 that we have located!  

Coming soon!  ;)
