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.

Help! BMW 1600-2 Cabrio by Baur Latches Needed!

We have a request from a friend who is searching for latches for a 1600-2 cabrio.  Does any one have them?  The usual sources do not, he has already checked.  Suggestions?  

Anyone have a spare set?  Does anyone have the latches that could be used as a model to have someone make them via 3D printing?  All ideas and thoughts are welcome!  

Please and thank you in advance!  ;)

1973 BMW 2002 on eBay, BUY IT NOW: US $39,900.00!

1973 BMW 2002 Cabrio Targa by Baur!

OK, full disclosure:  we know this Baur.  ;)  The seller is a friend of ours in Poland who sent us pics of the restoration while it was in progress.  We posted some of those on our Baurspotting Facebook page back in early February when they were in need of some seals to finish the car.  We helped them locate the seals they needed through Jaymic in the UK.  They were then able to finish the car in time to take it to the big show in  Essen (I think), where it was displayed in all its new glory for the first time!  It is a beauty, and it appears that they did a superb job with the restoration!  But have a look at the photos and judge for yourself!  Two days to go on the sale! Congrats to Artur M.!  And thanks to Mike Pugh for the heads up on the ebay listing!  ;)
