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.

Hi and welcome to my listing for my 1985 E30 318i TC Baur.
I have owned this car since November and have spent a small fortune on it. I have a baby on the way so she has to go.
It has had the following replaced or fitted in the last 6 months:
* 15 inch BBS RS (replica) wheels 15x7.5 (5mm spacers on the front) and 15x8.5 on the rear
* Brand new tyres (done less than 1500kms)
* Lowtec 60/55 springs
* Brand new genuine fuel pumps, both lift pump in the tank and supply pump under the car ($600 for the pair!)
* M Tech 1 steering wheel with brand new genuine decal insert
* Series 1 gear knob with M insert
* New gear shift boot
* Ireland Engineering short shift kit
* Solid castor bushes
* Aero style wipers
* A/C Compressor bushes
* LED interior lights and number plate lights
* 318is interior, in very good condition with no rips or tears

The bad bits:
The car is in great condition, but has a few knocks and scuffs, as with any 30 year old car. There are a couple of little rust spots, but the roof doesn't have any holes and doesn't leak. There is a dent in the right front guard too.
The diff is a bit noisy, never bothered me and doesn't make any clunks or knocks.
The dash has the usual sun damage with some cracks and the odometer has stopped working. The gears inside crack (about $30 for a kit to fix). I am fairly sure that it has a second hand cluster in kit, the car does not look or drive like a car that has 400,000kms on the clock!  
The car comes with a Sony head unit and decent speakers, with aux input too. The AC is nice and cold and it drives really smoothly. All the gears are nice and tight with the short shift kit and it actually goes pretty well for a small 30 year old engine!
It was recently serviced, all filters and fluids replaced.
It has REGO until 24/01/2016 and if the full asking price is met (the Buy It Now) I will supply a RWC.
If you want to come and see it then just let me know, 
Payment cash on collection only. 
Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions.
Thanks for looking and happy bidding!


Thanks, Kevin!
