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.

Baurspotting makes The Daily Turismo! 1983 TC2 in California!

It is always nice to be noticed!  Thanks to the folks over at The Daily Turismo for kindly mentioning Baurspotting in today's posting of this 1983 Baur located in Salinas, CA.  We contacted this seller a couple of weeks ago and obtained some more pics, including the Baur number.  $6500. Here is what we have: 

Baur Number 40197.

Here are some of the seller's comments to me about this Baur:  

I bought the car from the original owner 223... and stopped.

Has a rough idle and then it settles after 2 min it stays at 1 rpm. Havent had time to mess with it. Passenger seat small tear back seat tear on top. The top is good new carpet. Cluster needs work just like all the e30s i have another mtech 1 that im fixing up.

I believe the 223 refers to 223K for the mileage, but the odometer is not working.  Not an unusual problem for this vintage BMW, btw. ---Ed. 

Here is the Daily Turismo text from today's article:

The '75-'83 BMW 3-Series Baur Targa is a strange intersection of BMW E21 handling/driving goodness with a unique convertible/targa styling...and I've gotta admit that I'm really not an expert on these wild looking things, but they guys over at Baurspotting can give you the full details of how Karosserie Baur would hack the top off a new BMW 3-series and offer a unique and safe alternative to the ragtop. Not many were built and not many remain, but they are still cheap.  Find this 1983 BMW 323i Baur Targa offered for $6,500 in Clovis, CA via craigslist.
