Outrageous E21: 1979 BMW 320i Dinan 4.6

Edit 12/9/2017: With new photos, a new description and apparently a few things fixed, the current owner of this ‘346i’ that we looked almost exactly one year ago has it back up for sale in a reserve auction format. Last time it didn’t meet reserve at only $10,000. Will it clear the reserve this time around?

The E21. By far, it is the 3-series we feature least frequently (barring new models). In U.S. trim, it is also by far the least sporting 3-series. But don’t throw the baby BMW out with the bath water, because it’s still a classic BMW, it looks nice and it’s quite affordable relative to some other hyperbolic models.

For one, I really like the E21. I’ve even enjoyed driving a few. Of course, never once did I think when driving one “You know what this needs? A M60 V8.” And certainly, even in the very unlikely scenario that idea sprang into my head, there’s no way I would have said “Right, now, off to Dinan to bump it out to 4.6 liters!”

But, if nothing else, this Golf Yellow example of an extreme E21 dispels the myth that they’re all underpowered?

1982 BMW E21 320/6 Baur

IMG_4118_zpsa76ae23d

The E21 is a funny little beast, but some nice examples have cropped up over the last year or two. Today’s is about as odd as they come, with the interesting and non-US 2.0l 6-cylinder topped by the rag/convertible combo assembled by Baur and factory “is” upgrades. With just 56k miles, the seller is looking for the upper echelons of E21 money. Top-down motoring in an orange little speedster with the unique sounds of a small inline-6 sounds like a good time to me.

Beautiful Henna Red #052, Euro 320/6 E21 Baur #4040 of 4595 total built, 3 series BMW in IS trim. Imported to California in late 1984, this wonderful time capsule only has 56,846 miles. Same owner since 1985. Stack of early import and service records. Serviced a Local Sacramento CA independent icon, Lubos BMW (916) 451-5826, for over the last 2 decades. Extremely rare car in the US.

Basic condition on this car is as you would expect from a car with such low miles. Very low original wear on original fabric IS optional Recaro seats. excellent Dash, glass, seals, etc. Brand new Michelin tires on flawless BBS 14″ rims. New front brake rotors just replaced a seized set from long term storage. Car is and always has been registered in CA and passes smog testing everytime. The rare, unavailable to the US 2.0L 6cyl runs fantastic with great torque and power. Equally rare 5 speed shifts in and out of all gears and reverse with ease. Car drives superb with no age related wind noise, rattles, smells or freeway wander. Cruises on the freeway confidently and very high speeds, achieved by the very tall 5th gear.

Paint and finish are above average and the car still retains much of it’s original finish. Front hood, period correct aftermarket front bumper and rear trunk have all been repainted however. No signs of accident, and if so, too minor to detect. 2 areas on the rear trunk have some pealing and are detailed in pictures attached. Prior owner remembers that they were created by the upholster when the rear window plastic was replaced. Painted areas are very old, and overall condition would rate a 7 out of 10. All door jams, trunk and engine compartments, seams, body panels, etc., look to be original, flawless and laser straight.

Baur top is in excellent original condition. Does not leak. surprisingly quite and calm when down/off. With windows up, it is as quite as a sunroof with no bothersome wind noise! Truly genius design and was advertised as such by Baur. Very unique rare car, that is a blast to drive and sure to appreciate. Almost couldn’t contain not adding some lowering/racing springs and set of vintage Alpina wheels myself!

IMG_4055_zpse5dff683

Quite an odd little duck, but it’s rare and cool. Maybe not where my $13.5k is going, but when something this unique finds its next owner you can bet they’re going to enjoy it.

Afternoon Accessories: Alpina 38L E21/E30 Fuel Tank

You know what’s embarrassing when you’re considered a motoring enthusiast? Running out of gas. Like showing up to a marathon barefoot, nothing says poor planning like seeing someone walking the shoulder of the highway with an improvised gas container.

Not to worry, BMW fans, because the folks at Alpina have a solution for you….or they did, many years ago. Here’s an Alpina additional fuel tank for sale on Ebay:

My wife used to laugh at how overactive the fuel warning lights are on both Volkswagen and Audi products; the V8 Quattro I owned would warn you with nearly 100 miles of range of your imminent fuel shortage. But of course at Autobahn speeds, at last few gallons can be gobbled up in minutes, not hours, so having an additional 10 gallons of fuel on board could be the difference between a large fine and a fine day motoring!

1980 BMW Alpina Turbo E21 Prototype – REVISIT

The 1980 BMW Alpina Turbo E21 “Prototype” featured last month created a lot of discussion amongst our readers. One of our readers, Mario, emailed us at the end of last month. He has worked in a large BMW dealership in Switzerland for the past 13 years. He spotted this E21 and was skeptical, stating that hew knew Alpina was not in the business of selling prototypes. After some research on his part, he discovered that this car is a US market E21 with original Alpina parts. Attached is the letter that Mario received from the Marketing and Sales department at Alpina. The letter was originally written in Germany, so I have included the original letter along with the English translation:

Bitte entschuldigen Sie die verspätete Antwort, jedoch stehen wir mitten in den Vorbereitungen für den Genfer Auto Salon. Dieser angebliche ALPINA Prototype hat bis auf einige Teile wie Lenkrad, Zusatzinstrumente, Schriftzüge nichts mit ALPINA zu tun. Bei der angegebenen Fg-Nr. handelt es sich um einen BMW 320 US, der nie bei uns im Hause war. ALPINA hat auch nie einen 4 Zylinder Turbo gebaut.

Mit freundlichen Grüssen aus Buchloe

English Translation: We apologize for the late reply, but we are busy preparing for the Geneva Motor Show. This alleged ALPINA Prototype has a few Alpina parts such as the steering wheel, dashboard instruments and lettering. According to the specified VIN, it is a US BMW 320, which has never been in our facility. ALPINA has never built a 4 cylinder turbo.

1980 BMW Alpina Turbo E21 Prototype – REVISIT

The below post originally appeared on our site February 14, 2013:

Often times we come across the E30 M3s, talk about how collectable they are and how the premium prices are justified due to collectability and so on and so on. So if the E30 M3s are the future collectable from BMW, what does that make this car?  A no brainer, that’s what.

Alpina was founded in 1965, and started life producing typewriters and office equipment. In the mid 1960s, founder Burkard Bovensiepen started a BMW tuning business out of the original Alpina typewriter factory. By the early 70s, Alpina was making a name for itself in competition. The highlight was in 1970, when the team’s cars won the European Touring Car Championship, the German Hillclimb Championship, rally and track racing championships and the prestigious Spa 24 Hours. The rest is tuning history.

Over the years Alpina has softened a bit, focusing more on luxury sedans based on the BMW 7-series, but throughout the 80’s they were experimenting on all BMW platforms, and the results speak for themselves. This stunning E21 prototype is a prime example of the days when Alpina seemd to be turbocharging everything.

Year: 1980
Model: Alpina E21 Prototype
Engine: 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 40,000
Price: $29,900

1980 BMW Alpina Turbo E21 Prototype on Autokennel.com

Screen Shot 2013-01-31 at 2.16.59 PM

Alpina Burkard Bovensiepen GmbH has been working closely with BMW since the early 1970’s producing some of their most memorable racecars. By the late 70s, Alpina became their own manufacturer and no longer sold their cars as BMW Alpinas, but rather just Alpina. They would order raw chassis and engines and build their own vehicles, many of which were then sold through the BMW dealership network. Forty years later, they are still producing some of the best-engineered versions of BMWs and sill reselling them through BMW dealerships worldwide.

This very unique prototype is very typical Alpina. In the late 70s, as BMW was determining what engine to put in their new 320/E21 chassis to give it more performance, they once again enlisted the engineers of Alpina to produce a Turbo variant.  They were provided 3 blank E21 bodies with 3 of the 4-cylinder 2.0-liter motors. Several of Alpina’s top engineers were enlisted for this project.

What is so unique is that the head engineer of this particular example was able to purchase the car once it was complete since BMW ended up pulling the plug on the project and going with the 2.3 liter 6-cylinder. The engineer was lucky enough to access BMW’s parts bins in order to install the “Hi-Lux” package on this example. This package included front and rear fog lights, European headlamps with washers, power windows, power mirrors, power locks, glove box flashlight, under hood and trunk lights, electric sunroof, and even the map light rear view mirror from the E23 program. Once the car was complete, being that the engineer was an American, he imported the car to his home in Colorado and federalized the car. Also (since the German engineers would have no part of it), he installed a correct Behr A/C system with an upgraded compressor. The final result was a very comfortable and fast sport coupe that could hold its own on the Autobahn. He used this car for fun weekend events and stored it during much of the winter. He sold the car a couple of years ago to a local BMW/Porsche enthusiast.

However, just before selling the car, the original owner went through the whole car and did a nice restoration. This included taking the car completely down to a bare body. The suspension was redone with new Bilsteins, front and rear bushings, rear suspension arms, and new brakes (discs and rotors) all the way around. Also a top end rebuild was performed on the engine.

After purchasing the car in 2011, the recent owner put the finishing touches on the car. He spent over $6,000 restoring the interior of the car. The factory sport seats were recovered in vinyl. A new headliner and carpet kit was also installed. Also, he completely restored the original dash including the rare Alpina gauge cluster. Finally, he redid the door panels and center console. The only flaw is the small plastic trim near the gauge cluster has a few cracks in it. It isn’t that noticeable, but unfortunately, the part is NLA. We are still on the hunt for a good used one. Recently, a major service was performed on the car including a valve adjustment, alignment, and oil service. This Alpina is ready to be enjoyed.

The build on this car was typically BMW contract prototype budget. No expense was spared and nearly every component on this car was improved upon.

Modifications include the following:

  • Recaro sport seats
  • Electric Sunroof
  • Alpina body stripes
  • 3:64 Limited slip differential
  • Leather 3-spoke steering wheel
  • Rajay oil fed turbo
  • 2.3L Bottom End Engine that’s been Stroked
  • BMW 323 Suspension
  • All Wheel Disc Brakes
  • Bilstein Shocks
  • Minor Porting
  • Minor Head Work
  • Battery relocated to the trunk

I love these “affordable collectibles.” These cars are not only fun to drive and easy to live with even on a daily-driver basis, but being so rare, they have a huge upside in collectible value in the long run. Included with this vehicle are much of the original build information as well as the factory tool kit.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Paul at 714-335-4911 or paul@autokennel.com

Note:

This vehicle is sold “as-is” with no warranty, written or implied. In some cases, the vehicle does have the remaining factory warranty still in place and will be described above if that is the case. All taxes and fees are the responsibility of the buyer and are not included in the listed price. All vehicle sales will require a $55 document fee. The vehicle listed is described to the best of our ability. We are not responsible for errors in our description of options or any other details. The above-mentioned vehicle is used and can be expected to show some wear and tear. It is not a brand new vehicle. We do our best to accurately describe the vehicle. We do welcome all local pre-purchase inspections on vehicles in order to verify condition.

A car like this is close to impossible to put a pricetag on due to the shear rarity of it. Regardless of what E21 values are, and Alpina values are, a well documented, one of two prototype should command a premium, as it can only appreciate as the years pass. All factors considered, this car is priced well for the BMW enthusiast market and if you ask me, is a far better collector choice than an E30 M3. That’s not to say that I’d love to have both sitting side by side in my garage.

Cleaner Alpine’r: A yet BETTER E21?

The Hungarian red E21 was a fun writeup, and I enjoyed the comments regarding the style. Specifically, the detraction of the add-ons from the otherwise-pristine, untouched look that just 47k miles can do. Well, I found another E21 that has covered all of 83k miles and has a much cleaner, “how it shoulda been done” look that comes with simple and well-chosen Alpina upgrades. From the cream color to the front spoiler to the much-more correct rear spoiler to the open-lug classics, this is how an E21 should be. It outdoes the red’s cloth interior-with-seat covers as well, achieving the TKO via immaculate leather and Alpina wheel and shift knob. Bidding is at 1/3 of the Hungarian’s at $5,100, though the reserve hasn’t been met and there’s a week to go. No question, nicest E21 I’ve ever seen.

1983 BMW 320i with Alpina upgrades for sale on eBay



Wow:

So this is a pretty rare little car here.
Purchased a few months ago while looking for a commuter vehicle that still had some vintage BMW appeal.

The car is truly a one of a kind. A true head turner, with a bit of spunk in it as well. There is literally nothing that this car needs.

This little gem showed up and was about 7 out of 10 based on running condition and maintenance. However, right off the bat, the starter died. I took it to BMW of Murray (yes, a dealer), who went over it with a fine tooth comb. They found a ton of tiny things wrong but nothing major. All work was performed by them including valve adjustments and factory recommended plugs (which were roughly $40 each), and a new starter. End result is that it purrs like a kitten and while its not a rocket off the line, it will cruises along at 110mph as smooth as a 7 series. (Yes, a good e21 will cruise at high speeds)
Discussions with the techs at BMW lead me to the conclusion that this was not a cloned car. Basically all its missing at this point is a euro motor. The suspension is a full Alpina spec set up. We looked at the installation and the parts, the work is just too old to be new.
It was his opinion, that the car was probably dropped at an Alpina tuning shop to get what upgrades were possible for a US spec car. He was also in awe of how clean it was, in, out, and under.

From that point I had the car professionally cut and polished at a very reputable local body shop. That did the final trick. The color came back with a vengeance and the paint is smooth like glass.

My problem now is that I live in a state infamous for its salt, snow and weather. Weather that will destroy a car like this. So its up for sale, to a new owner who can hopefully keep it well.

It needs absolutely nothing. Drive it anywhere.

A list of pro’s for the little e21:

Completely original. No crappy add ons.
Coolant overflow in Alpina method.
Front Strut tower brace
Rear strut brace with battery relocation
New YellowTop Optima
New starter
Boge Coilovers
3.93 LSD
No leaks, no oil, no trans, no nothing.
5spd Getrag Trans.
Full Ansa Exhaust
New ball joints in front
Front end gone over and all seals and bushings replaced.
All bushings in the rear replaced (links and such)
Interior is perfect.
All seats are 100%, no rips, splits or tears.
Carpet is green. thats all I can say.
AC works well and blows cold
Heater and fan are 100%
Defroster is working correctly.
Hazard switch is not broken.
Aftermarket Alpine headunit with IPod interface.
NO RUST ANYWHERE.
320is steering wheel
Alpina Dead Pedal
Alpina VIN tag (was in glove box)
This car really is too nice to daily drive. The only thing that keeps it from being an absolute 10 is the pin-striping is a little faded and there are a few tiny dings on the rear quarter panel. Difficult to see but they are there.

She starts and runs flat and true. Really does not need anything. Another item of note is that she is running all synthetics, and no leaks. If you have played this game before, you know that putting synthetics is most older cars will create leaks.

Questions, please ask. Its a true, rare collector piece and there aren’t a whole lot of e21s around anyway.

It will be very interesting to see where this bidding goes compared to the high Buy-it-Now of the red E21. Even for more money, this would be the one to buy if you are looking for the best E21 out there.

1977 E21 BMW 325i Widebody

This 3 series is w-i-d-e. The car shows a lot of work inside and out. The engine is from a 1990 525i and it has been mated to a 5 speed manual. The interior has some aftermarket stereo work that is a bit dated. The outside shows some age as well with the fiberglass needing some cracks sealed and painted.

This car needs some cleanup, but will turn heads as is. Folks who sell their cars and do things like leave boxes of parts sitting in the trunk or have the shift knob mounted upside down, should not be surprised when bidding doesn’t meet their expectations.

Mileage is unclear on this ride. Bidding is up at $5,300 with no reserve. Would make a nice cars and coffee driver.

1981 BMW e21 Euro-Spec 323i Black on houndstooth

We had this car posted up on the site back in June, but it is back, still with the same owner.

It’s probably no secret by now that I’m 80’s fanboy and modified e21’s are a perfect fit in my mind, especially when restored to this degree. This car is so period correct in terms of upgrades and modifications, and being a Euro-spec 6 cylinder model it really stand out.

1981 BMW e21 323i Euro For Sale

quote from seller’s listing:

You are bidding on an extremely rare 1981 323i Euro. Very well documented, still retains much of the original paperwork when brought to the US including the EPA approvals and original German owners manuals. As we continue through the description and pics , you are seeing the results of over $15000 in restoration costs and while not factory stock, I think you’ll agree, this is one unique “ultimate driving machine”. The Euro model E21s differ quite a bit from the American spec versions: Larger, more powerful 6 Cylinder engine, fixed rear quarter windows, better suspension, slim bumpers, no side markers, different parking lights, better headlights, etc…) I’ve tried to cover as many particulars as I can in the following description but I’m sure I’ve neglected something so feel free to call.

Exterior: Vehicle was originally Brazil Brown, very high quality repaint with attention to detail. Current color is Cosmos Schwarz (Cosmos Black Metallic) . It would be very difficult upon inspection to determine that this was not the original color, vehicle was completely disassembled prior to paint.
* New OEM weather strip throughout
* New OEM rear quarter windows
* New OEM front windshield, Euro market green tinted glass
* New OEM front and rear bumper rub strips
* New OEM E30 style spoiler
* New Alpina style 15×6 wheels with Kumho Ecsta SX tires all around
* European H4/H1 Hella headlights

I’ve also included Euro style license plates, front and rear to help with the authentic look All exterior trim has received a “shadow-line” treatment as well, accented by professionally installed 30% window tint all around.

Mechanical: Stock European M20 2.3 liter 6 cylinder
* True Euro engine, no catalytic converters or unnecessary smog. All EPA/DOT paperwork included.
* All new vacuum lines, hoses and new air boot.
* New fuel lines and filters
* Bav Auto 8mm high temp plug wires
* New distributor cap and rotor
* Timing belt and water pump within the last 20000 miles
* 3.64 limited slip diff with redline fluids.
* New OEM BMW dual exhaust from manifold back.
* New axles and CV boots
* Front and rear Bilstein sports, front and rear H&R lowering springs
* K/MAC adjusted camber and caster plates
* All new bushings including front and rear sway bar bushings
* New tie rods and tie rods ends
* New steering knuckle and rag joint
* New calipers and vented rotors
* Korman Automotive rear strut-brace with integrated trunk-mount battery relocation

How cool is that interior? And the shadowline style trim? This car is very close to what I would build if I had a budget and talent for such things. Makes me feel like I’m 17 again and reading early European Car magazines!

Note from Evan:
Dan and I both found this car and double posted, my comments are:
For those looking for something a little more wild than this fairly stock black beauty check out the 323i widebody posted and for sale on the site right now.

This car looks very nice.
All Euro with H4 head lights, better breathing M20 2.3 liter motor.
This 323i is just begging for someone to complete the murdered out look, give it some black rims and smoke those tail lights and orange corners. It has newer Cosmos Schwarz paint, that looks like a quality job, the original color was brown.
The lines are just classic, the little touches like the dual exhaust and the little trunk lip spoiler are perfect and it comes with a proper manual transmission. The houndstooth interior looks fantastic, it even carries through into the trunk and looks good.. The seller has $15000 in receipts an documents.

The car presents very well for the mileage. This looks like a real nice find.

Bidding is up to $6,300 with the reserve not met. Pretty healthy pricing for an 80s vehicle with 100,000 miles that, while special, wasn’t exactly top of the range when new. It is unclear what the seller is looking for price-wise, don’t expect this one to go cheap. I imagine it will attract the eyes of a few Bimmer fans. It has my attention.

1978 BMW Dinan 320i to 333i Turbo E21

Here is something to be thankful about this time of year. When cars like this pop up for sale it makes all of us excited.

This is a truly one of a kind early Dinan tuned 3 series. This BMW will make even the nicest E30 M3 look somewhat mundane.

What you have is a 1978 320i with a 5 speed overdrive manual that in 1980 was sent to Dinan where it received a new paint job, some body work and then had a 3.3 liter inline six with a turbo bolted on dropped in. The seller states that later in life, 1987, the head was replaced with a 3.5 version. (perhaps because the turbo blew out the head gasket on the original?) The engine bay is amazingly clean. I love the custom 333i badge completing the look on the back, just need to squeeze one of the BMW turbo badges on there somewhere.

16″ Hardy and Beck wheels keep the car on the ground and with the turbo’s 8.5 lbs of boost putting down 315 horsepower in a car this light its a good thing there are meaty Yokohama AVS Sport tires on the rims.

Recaro seats, custom gauges, and obligatory Blaupunkt stereo finish off the well cared for interior.  The car has an estimated 50,000 miles on the chassis.

A spectacular piece here showing a classic tuned vehicle that hasn’t been over restored or contemporized. In terms of collectibility finding a vehicle like this that is maintaining its original tuning, rather than finding the same vehicle that was customized recently, really helps the sale price. Quite a sleeper of a car too, that even a BMW fan might not appreciate at first look. Certainly will be a crowd pleaser at car shows though.

Right now it is sitting at $23,000 reserve not met. I’m not sure how high this one will go, but we will be talking very nice E30 M3 money.

Alpina B6 e21 For Sale in Georgia

Here is one of the more affordable stateside, early Alpina’s we’ve featured. A BMW e21 platform Alpina B6! This one has a 3.5L big six swapped in, but comes with the matching numbers Alpina engine as well.

Check it out on Atlanta Craigslist for $9000:

quote from the seller’s Craigslist post:

Alpina B6, all the right sounds – 3.5big six, close ratio 5 speed, 3.91 limited slip gear. Not fast but quick! Numbers matching Alpina motor comes with the car. Daily driver but has not seen rain in at least 10 years. 3 small spotrust spots (very small!). Alpina vin 6549828 Alpina B6 #89. Rare and fun!

According to the entry on the Unofficial Alpina Pages, the B6 had a massaged 2.8L originally that produced the same horsepower as the motor that now sits in this car. While it’s probably a touch heavier, it’s a period correct alternative that makes sense, and the added torque probably more than makes up for the weight.

Seems like a cool and easily attainable entry into genuine Alpina ownership!

Beautiful 1983 BMW e21 320i For Sale in Oregon

Richard contacted me about listing his 83 BMW 320i for sale on the blog, and how could I say no? It has the blessing of Paul from Sports Car Shop who recently told me that the car was “immaculate” after doing the recent service mentioned in the Craigslist post for the black e21:

quote from Craigslist posting (Eugene/Portland):

Beautiful BMW 320i – $3200 (Eugene/Portland)

Selling my great little 1983 e21 because I’m traveling out of the country and feel bad about letting my car sit for a year. I just had a service review done at the Sports Car Shop in Eugene and they found very little wrong with the car. The crank case seal needs replacing along with the read diff seal. The motor mounts could stand to be replaced along with the various engine belts. The car has a long service history and really is in great shape. The engine bay is very clean, with no build up anywhere, the GETRAG 5speed gearbox shifts smoothly and the suspension is firm, with not seepage or leaks. I’m a BMW CCA member and the car won the 2007 BMW ACA Octoberfest People’s Choice award and Best Classic award. Email for more images and contact info. This car is located in Oregon, all transactions must be done in person and in cash.
196,700 Miles
5speed Manual
Flawless Paint (Black/Black)
4 brand new OEM wheels (from BMW Mobile Traditions) with good Turanzas
Sunroof

Paul went so far as to say he was almost considering buying this car himself, but was instead inspired to continue the work on his own classic BMW after seeing Richard’s car! Considering he’s only asking $3200, someone should snap this up cheap!
