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.

Uber-Rare Former US-Spec Baur Model For Sale on Ebay! One of Three!

Thanks to our friend and fellow Baur owner Afonso Conceicao for the heads up on this special item!!

14 hours to go  on this one.....  reserve not met! What they do NOT tell you about this Baur..... and I do not understand why! ..... this Baur is one of the 3 original US Spec  Baurs that were imported by BMW to the US.

That is correct. You read that right!  BMW officially imported 25 BMW US Spec E21 Baurs to North America, 22 of which went to Canada!  This Baur is one of the three that came to the US!  It is no longer a US Spec E21, as you can tell from the description.  Baurspotting has known of this Baur for several years now from its previous owner, who commissioned the upgrades.  This Baur is amazingly fast, trust me!

Bidding is currently $15,000, and reserve is not met.  This Baur was advertised at around $26,000+ earlier this year, btw.

I have lots of pics of this car from the previous owner.  This is an amazing car, folks.  Here are two items that you will not find in the current ebay ad, but we have them here at Baurspotting!
First of all, check out that Baur number:  3374. Now look at the following chart, and scroll down until you see it.

Second column on the right, fifth line from the bottom:  "73374".  That is this car.  This list shows the 25 US Spec E21 Baurs officially imported by BMW to North America.  22 of those went to Canada, and only 3 came to the US.  This Baur is one of those 3..... originally delivered to Santa Monica, CA, as you can see in the extreme right column.

This is a collectible, folks.  It is one of three.  It is no longer original, of course, due to the upgrades.  So factor that in as you will.
