Testimonials

"I recently purchased a vehicle from Jesmond and found the whole process to be a great experience. I found Jesmond to be a very obliging and forthright person to deal with and felt quite quickly, that he is a man of integrity. He was very accommodating and allowed me all the time I required in making my purchase, never at any time did I feel pressured or unduly influenced in any way. Having said that he did take the time to find out what my needs and wants were regarding my vehicle purchase and was able to steer me on the right path with his vast knowledge of European cars until I was able to decide clearly what it was that I wanted. Once I had made my choice of vehicle he supplied me with all of the relevant history on it (where it originated from, work history etc) and familiarised me with the vehicle covering its performance and general running and how to get the best out of it. He encouraged me to get a check on the car prior to purchase and informed me of the best agents and automotive engineers that were locally available. His obvious love and passion for his vehicles and European vehicles in general came across strongly and only enhanced my faith in him and the car I was considering to purchase. When the sale was made and upon uplifting the vehicle I was delighted to find a full tank and a bottle of wine included. A nice touch. In short I found Jesmond a very professional and amiable person to deal with and would have no hesitation doing further business with him and would recommend him to anyone that could benefit from what he has to offer."

      Description

      CAR DESCRIPTION

      The BMW 3 Series has been produced consistently since 1975, when it was code named the E21. 

      Back then, there were only two body styles: a coupe, which is what everyone bought and a convertible, courtesy of a Stuttgart-based coach builder named Baur, who had a long history with BMW and apparently saw the market for a BMW convertible before BMW did.

      The Baur is a convertible of unusual proportions. For one thing, it isn't a full convertible: the top panel comes off, and only the soft top over the rear window retracts like a typical convertible top.  In roof open mode, the A-pillar is still in place but so are the B-pillar, and the C-pillar. And there's a huge bar connecting the B-pillar on the left side of the car to the one on the right side – even when the top is off.

      The Baur E21 cars had another unusual aspect: roof storage. Because the regular 3-Series wasn't built with a rear-hinged trunk to accommodate the folding roof, the convertible soft top just kind of sits on top of the trunk when it's down. The benefit is that cargo volume is the same as a regular E21 coupe.

      Baur's are rare, especially in New Zealand. They were very expensive back in the day and very few were made. The Baur definitely has its advantages over an ordinary convertible and a late 80's classic like this one is definitely worth holding on to. Particularly when most of the early pre facelift ones have rotted away.
