2017 BMW 530d review

BMW's new 5 Series is starting to shake off its sports sedan heritage in favour of a luxury limousine experience. Does the mid-spec 530d diesel make a compelling enough case for this realignment of sorts of the 5er formula?

2017 BMW 330i GT review

It's a 3 that's as long as a 5 with as much room as an X, but is the 330i Gran Turismo BMW enough?

2017 BMW M550i xDrive quick drive

The new BMW M550i xDrive is faster than the old BMW M5, and its V8 engine outguns the Mercedes-AMG E43's six. So why the hell can't we get it in Australia?

2017 BMW M3 30 Jahre: A step back in time

Where were you in 1987? For me, I was busy being born. But if you were old enough to remember, you more than likely would’ve been sporting the coolest mullet in town or wearing brightly coloured leg warmers while dancing to Belinda Carlisle’s Heaven is a Place on Earth. Yes, there were a lot of cringeworthy moments in the '80s, but there was also some moments to be proud of...

2016 BMW M4 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S Track Test

Read the full article here. The battle of BMW’s M division against Mercedes-AMG has been raging on for decades. The Bavarians have never gone for a power war with the folks from Affalterbach, preferring instead to focus on a power to weight ratio formula that sees them maintain the purists status amongst the hooligan nature of old AMGs...

2016 BMW X6 review

James and Paul agree on many things, but the 2016 BMW X6 isn't one of them. James finds it a luxurious and capable grand tourer, but Paul feels it needs to be more dynamically astute to suit its sporting profile. Let's not even get started on the design! So which side are you on; Team James or Team Paul?

2017 BMW M4 GTS review

This is one of just 700 2017 BMW M4 GTS in the world – the first of just 25 coming to Australia. The car is so special, it has to go through a very specific 2000km running-in program and service, before we’re even allowed to touch it. So before we get behind the wheel, we have to wait for the BMW technicians to finish...

Drag race: Australia vs The World

Australia. It's the country where there's always an insect, animal or sea creature trying to kill you. It's also the country that once housed a thriving car industry. But, instead of crying over spilt milk, we're showing the world one last time why the constant fear of death has inspired our local engineers to build a car that's itching at the chance to chew you up and spit you out...

Alfa Romeo Giulia QV v BMW M3 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S comparison

For a nation renowned for its love of all things sport, it should come as no surprise this admiration and aspiration extends to what we drive. We are inside the top-10 world sales market list for Lamborghini, Porsche is seeing continuing sales growth and both Mercedes-AMG and BMW M Division speak highly of the Australian market, where we have the highest performance-version to regular-model ratio in the world...

BMW M4 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe track comparison

The battle of BMW’s M division against Mercedes-AMG has been raging for decades. The Bavarians have never gone for a power war with the folks from Affalterbach, preferring instead to focus on a power-to-weight ratio formula that sees them maintain the purists' status amongst the hooligan nature of old AMGs...

2012 BMW 535i GT Review

So, after just over four years of ownership 'we' (well the other half) traded in our BMW 535i GT for a 440i Gran Coupe (yes, I know, first world, white people problems). Other half bought the car before we met, as at the time he had decided he wanted: a hatchback for the flexibility of carrying 'Stuff' a larger car than the 3 series Coupe The 535 (actually built on the 7 series platform) was an ex-company car from Brisbane BMW with about 9000km on it and it was at a knockdown price...

2016 BMW 125i Sportline review

  When looking for a new car last year, the last place I expected to end up was at a BMW dealership. Having always been an Audi fan, my first stop was to test drive an S3, followed by a Golf R. While both cars are good, they were both extremely fast and more expensive than what cash I was prepared to part with...

2001 BMW 325i review

I knew that I wanted something decently powerful (while being within P-plate power-to-weight constraints) and fun to drive, while still being fairly practical. And preferably a manual, with RWD. So, naturally, as soon as I found that an old BMW was within reach, I pursued it...

2015 BMW 528i Luxury Line Review

Two weeks ago, BMW revealed its new 5 Series, the G30 to replace their current F10 generation. While we are waiting for the new 5 series to arrive in Australia next year, I thought I should write an owner review for my F10, 2015 528i with M Sport package. I hope this review can be useful for people who are considering purchasing an F10 for a bargain when the G30 arrives...
