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.

The Resurrection of Baur #1929!

Thanks to Twelvizm in E21 bimmerforums for these updated pics of his former Baur, now owned by Allan in the PNW.  Baur #1929.  Thank you, twelvizm, and congrats to Allan!  Nice job!

I love the E21s in white!  Beautiful, Allan!  We can't wait to see more!

Here are some pics from when Allan first purchased it last fall:

Baur 1929:  you've come a Long way, baby!  We look forward to some more pics from Allan!  :)

BTW, Allan has picked up another Baur recently:  a white TC2!  So he is going to be a busy fella!

Allan emailed me recently with this pic, and here are his comments about the TC2:
" It's Allan in Oregon with the TC1 #1929. I'm now a two Baur family!! This one is a 320i with the L-jet 2 litre M20 and 5 speed, pretty complete. Blue comfort interior, blue top. Baur # B43124-14. It comes with 1 New York and 4 (believe it or not!) Florida titles. I don't even know how that's possible! Needs a bunch of work, pretty much a basket case. Rust is not too bad. Been sitting outside for 11 years but was running before that.
   Big surprise is that the targa top has a tilt function on TC2's. Very handy!"

Thanks, Allan ,and keep us posted on what you are doing with it, please!   We love this stuff!  :)

Baurspotting actually has a fair amount of information on this particular Baur:   #1929.  We have traced it back through several previous owners:

Here is a post when we first spotted it in 2012:

Here is when our friend, twelvizm, bought it:

Twelvizm bought it, and we have lots of pics in our files of that.  Life happens, things change, and about a year and 1/2 later..... here he is selling it:

Allan is now the owner of Baur #1929, and we wish him every success!  It looks like he is off to a great start!  Kudos, Allan!
