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 Dianas are BAURS!

From the Macartney 2002 book-

Retired BMW racer Hubert Hahne became a BMW dealer in Dusseldorf.
He had bought his wife the actress Dianna Korner a specially equipped 2002 as a wedding present. The car attracted considerable attention. So Hahne was persuaded to make a luxury edition of the 2002Tii, with BMW's permission.

These 12 cars 1 690 201 to 1 690 212 were all different colors and had different interiors, non of the colors were standard 2002 colors. The conversion work was done by Baur.

    1. From what I understand, the sale of this Diana was successful, and it is now being restored to original spec in Europe somewhere. Cool, huh? ;)
