With BMW’s launch of the F80 M3, the E90 and E92 are no longer the new kid on the block. Instead, they’ve officially cemented their position in the M3 legacy, and will, from here on out, presumably age like a fine wine. We will watch them depreciate in value for the next few years, but in due time, their place amongst the hierarchy of BMW M cars will ensure they’re a classic in the future.
In early 2012, StanceWorks compiled the efforts of our Australian friends to bring Tom Morrison’s 2002 to the S|W homepage. Today, we’re taking a look back at the video, rich with imagery of both classic steel and aluminum. Tom’s 2002 serves as a perfect example as to why BMW’s classic coupe is rapidly approaching “iconic” status.

In perhaps the only video we’ve been more anxious for than the long-awaited release of “32 Hours 7 Minutes,” the team at Stereoscreen has produced “Adrenaline – The BMW Touring Car Story.” Yesterday, the latest trailer for the upcoming movie landed on Vimeo, and we have to say, we couldn’t possibly me more excited.
The film takes a look at BMW’s charismatic drivers and fascinating racing cars from five decades.

John Hall comes out swinging – “The only “factory” panels left on my WRX are the front doors, and I guess the roof if you want to count that.” For those of us that aren’t comfortably familiar with Subaru’s lineup, such a claim may not be immediately obvious, but that’s exactly what John wants. However, for those in-the-know, the subtleties of John’s build speak volumes. His sedan-bodied wagon leaves almost no bolt left unturned.

Bruce Carr is a quiet man; we stood to the side of the photo shoot, as Kevin Trower and Miller Robers snapped photos of his ’69 2002 – we talked about our love for the classic pint-sized coupes. He’s without a doubt one of H2OI’s most grounded attendees, too. At 33 years old, he’s found his way; he’s happily married, has a three year old son, and owns a contracting business with his father in Crownsville, MD.
