The PHer's Petrolicious: Time for Tea?


Having been a member for nearly nine years - and having contributed almost 11,500 posts in that time - it's fair to say that Mark Brown is a committed PHer. Back in 2014 his beloved E30 M3 was featured on the site in his own Carpool story, but now it's caught the eye of the film makers at Petrolicious, who have given it even more of the attention it deserves.

As the video details, Mark's attachment to the car goes beyond its status as a driving great and into its role in his rehabilitation from a debilitating accident. It's a passion which can be seen not just in the carefully chosen modifications he has made to the car - just look at those wheels and bonnet mounted lamps(!) - but also the way he talks about it.

Mark regularly travels from Cornwall for Sunday Services, but should you not have had a chance to catch him or his celebrity car yet, he'll be at our upcoming Silverstone event as well as our final Sunday Service of the year, appropriately set to be held at BMW HQ in December. So all that remains is to say congratulations to e30m3Mark, we look forward to seeing him, and you, soon!

    I watched that yesterday - such a nice video - car and his story .

    Do remember seeing pics of it in a thread a while ago and info about the rebuild.

    The car looks great! I love the Petrolicious stuff.

    I do like cars and owners with a story to tell. Petrolicious often seem to hit the nail on the head with these films.

    My Mrs wants to know why it says The rapist on their thumbnail though? smile

    Thanks for the kind remarks. Sadly I'm in hospital and my health has dipped of late. As a result I may be parting ways with the M3. I'll be genuinely gutted to see it go though.
