The BMW E30 Baur refers to a convertible model produced by the German coachbuilder Baur based on the BMW E30 platform, a highly regarded compact executive car manufactured by BMW from 1982 to 1994.
Baur, known for its convertible conversions, collaborated with BMW to create a unique convertible version of the BMW E30. The E30 Baur maintained the structural integrity of a coupe while offering a semi-convertible driving experience.
Similar to other Baur conversions, the E30 Baur featured a Targa-style roof design. It had a removable panel over the front seats and a foldable soft top at the rear, providing occupants with the option for open-air driving while retaining some of the structural strength of a fixed-roof coupe.
The E30 Baur's design allowed for versatility in driving experiences. It enabled occupants to enjoy the sensation of open-top motoring by either removing the front panel or folding down the rear soft top, offering a convertible-like experience while maintaining a level of rigidity akin to a coupe.
These Baur-converted E30 models, often referred to as the "Baur TC" or "Baur TopCabriolet," are prized by enthusiasts for their rarity, unique design, and the blend of coupe-like stability with convertible driving options. They represent a special niche within the BMW E30 lineup, offering a distinctive take on open-top motoring while maintaining the E30's driving dynamics and aesthetic appeal.

At present, our inability to furnish pricing online stems from the dynamic nature of global economics, which has led to substantial fluctuations in the costs of parts and materials on a day-to-day basis. The intricate interplay of market forces, supply chain disruptions, and geopolitical factors has rendered pricing incredibly volatile, making it challenging to provide accurate and up-to-date figures in real-time.
As we remain committed to offering fair and transparent pricing to our customers, we find it prudent to ensure that any pricing information reflects the current market reality, hence our decision to refrain from online pricing until we can reliably provide figures that align with the ongoing fluctuations in the global economy.
