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.

New Discovery: TC1 Baur in Brisbane, Australia!

Thanks to our Aussie Baur friends, Craig Saxon and Julie Pfennig, for the 'heads up' on this new discovery in Brisbane:  

Welcome Mitchell Anderson and Baur #1734! 

Baur A001734-14
The photo above accompanies Mitchell's listing in the International Baur Registry*.

Mitchell informs us that:  
"Restored her in 2017 but the motor was on its way out, we've recently put a whole new motor in and converted to manual at the same time...... we discovered pitting in the cylinder walls, barely had any power and lots of cooking issues ....New engine is amazing and really has given her a new life! Especially with the racing 5 speed manual box.  They're amazing to drive!"  

Yes, Mitchell, we agree!  Congratulations and Welcome to Baurspotting!
