BMW 323i Baur Convertible 5 speed manual.

Presenting on behalf of a client yet another gorgeous E30 BMW 3 series. This time the rare Baur TC2 Convertible.

Before BMW built and designed their own convertibles in house they commissioned Karosserie Baur of Stuttgart. A well known German coachbuilder, they produced the Targa topped 2002 range before moving on to the TC1 E21 series and finally the car you see here the TC2 E30 3 series.

The TC2 option was an official BMW factory order and on the internal build sheet was given the no 829 build code. It came with the same full factory warranty as other models in the range.

This lovely car is the desirable 323i 5 speed manual and has been with the same family all of its life. Coming with a huge history and over 28 service stamps she has been much loved and in 2014 was treated to a complete respray at great expense, along with a new roof in 2017.

The original invoice for £17774 is present along with dozens of invoices and old MOTs.

As with all of our commission sales, this BMW doesn’t come with any warranty but has been inspected and seems to be in superb order. We are not aware of any faults. You are welcome to arrange your own inspection if you wish.

Having had a full respray in 2014 at a cost of over £4000 you would expect the Zinnober red paintwork to be in excellent order. With virtually no stone chips or dents at all and certainly no corrosion this 323 is in beautiful condition.

The roof was replaced at a cost of £950 in 2017 and the bumpers and wheels are in good condition.


The anthracite cloth upholstery is virtually unmarked, as are the door cards. The expensive recaro sports seats which were a factory option and as you can see from the photographs are looking almost new.

There are no cracks on the dashboard and all of the electrics work as they should. This car was fitted with a very expensive Becker Mexico stereo system which suits the car perfectly.

The roof and lining are as new and the interior of this BMW is a cosy place to be. You can lift out the targa roof panel and store in the boot or go fully topless and quickly lower the rear roof section.

Engine and Transmission

This engine is the 6 cylinder 2316 cc with the Bosch L jetronic fuel injection and is smooth and powerful. Producing 150 BHP this was considered a quick car in its day, able to reach 123 MPH and hit 60 MPH in just under 9 seconds. The 5 speed gearbox and clutch are a delight and the car is light and nimble with a lovely sonorous tone coming from the straight six engine.Compared to BMWs own convertible these cars are rare and to find a good one is getting increasingly difficult.This is a commission sale on behalf of our client and although doesn’t come with a warranty has been fully inspected and is in superb order.


Option code 215: PAS, 219: sports steering wheel, 300 :central locking, 311: LH electric door mirror, 324: front spoiler, 350: green tinted glass, 410: electric front windows, 485: recaro sports seats, 551: on board computer, 829: Baur conversion.
