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.

Baur 4587 in Bimmerlife!


Thank you, Malia Murphy, for the great write-up on the E21 Baurs! Yes, indeed, Baur #4587 is one of the 25 US Spec Baur that BMW officially imported to North America, of which 22 went to Canada. You can find the list of the 25 in the Baurspotting blog. And yes, it is one of only 3 known US Spec Baurs that Baur brought into the US. There are others that were privately ordered/imported, however. We have found a total of 118 TC1 (E21) Baurs in the US today. If you search 'Baurspotting 4587' you should come up with some of the three or 4 posts in which Baur 4587 appeared in that blog over the years, going back to 2010 when it was in Virginia! Very happy to see that it is being well cared for! How do I know this? I write the Baurspotting blog! ;) https://baurspotting.blogspot.com/2013/11/long-lost-baur-4587-found-in-california.html
