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.

1971 BMW 1600 Cabriolet 5-Speed on Bring A Trailer! One day To Go!

Thanks to our friend, Bob Kauffman, for the link to this beautiful Cabrio by Baur just getting ready to expire on Bring A Trailer!  Well, as it turns out.... you guessed it:  it is a Small Baur World, once again!  We know this Baur!  It belongs to our friend, Mark92131 in California.   He has a blog dedicated to this car.... but I can't seem to find the link!  Anyway, auction ends in about a day or so, so let's have a look!  ;)  

"This 1971 BMW 1600 is one of 1,682 Baur-converted Cabriolet models and is finished in correct Polaris Silver over a black vinyl interior. The seller purchased the car in 2003 from Manders Autogas, a classic car dealer in the Netherlands, and import
ed it to the US. A modified 2.0-liter M10 inline-four was installed shortly thereafter and is paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential. At the time of the engine swap, the seller also rebuilt the suspension with ST springs, Bilstein shocks, new bushings, new sway bars, and more as outlined below. The most recent service included adjusting the valves and carburetor, as well as installing new spark plugs. This 1600 Cabriolet is now offered with receipts and a clean California title in the seller’s name."

Good Luck with the sale!  

Thank you, Bob Kauffman!  ;)
