When it comes to lineage, you can't build one if you don't start. Playing devil's advocate here
Valkyr Productions has done a large percentage of their American-based video content, while they rely on 1-2 different production companies for the films shot in Europe. They've also started using a few different freelance individuals for some of the stuff here.

Thank you for schooling me on how websites make money. Petrolicious is now doing so by selling expensive, nameless garbage while producing substance-lacking written content. The site did not start like this. I've been following it long enough to remember when engaging articles were part of the allure as opposed to branded coffee and overpriced gloves for those that want to play dress up.

I’ve driven E30’s including an M3, and owned a 325i for a short while. I get the appeal of those, wouldn’t mind a lightly modded 325is or 318is to have around the house.

I never got around to drive the 2002, and the esthetic for me is too old without being sexy old (like a 60’s Ferrari or E Type). I’d like to drive one to see if it changes my mind, but couldn’t find any local opportunity so far.

As a car lover I just envy the people that live in a different environment like California where a vehicle is not exposed to salt, gravel and post winter potholes.
I think is a blessing to live in a car friendly area.

Kudos to the lady and my admiration for her choice. Nice video, thanks for sharing.

2002's are cool but I'm not really digging her restoration.

Petrolicious recently featured my buddies 911t...

We have potholes here in California... and it's not from winter. It's from neglect!

But yes, I do feel lucky with our weather, but that's why I chose to live here.

Great pics.

My brother had a 1975 Fjord Blue 2002, albeit with the ginormous bumpers and power-sapping EGR valve, but that's when I fell in love with the car and the marque.
