Read more about the HSV GTS here. Read more about the BMW M5 Pure here. With 430kW, the 2016 HSV GTS is the most powerful production car ever built in Australia.

Mercedes-Benz GLC v BMW X3 : Comparison Review

Mercedes-Benz has not made all that many missteps over the past decade of vehicle development, especially when you consider its remarkable product resurgence and subsequent sales explosion. But the one decision it came to rue was not producing a car called the GLK in right-hand drive, and thereby allowing its German rivals to dominate sales in the compact luxury compact SUV market — one of the fastest-growing segments of all...

You’re on your way up the corporate ladder, and you need a compact executive car that befits your burgeoning status. Or, perhaps, you’re coming through the other side, flush and looking to downsize without scrimping on class. What do you buy? Tough question. Fact is, if you’re after a sporty and luxurious mid-sized sedan in Australia, you’re embarrassed with riches...

2015 BMW 125i v Mercedes-Benz A250 Comparison Review

Ordinarily, pitching a pair of premium German arch rivals against one another couldn’t represent a more natural face-off. But despite being oh-so-closely priced and positioned in their makers’ ranges, there’s one level where the Mercedes-Benz A250 Sport and BMW 125i couldn’t be more misaligned. Different driven wheels? In part, yes, but it’s more about the backstories behind it...

1 Series Sedan: BMW Australia hunting Mercedes CLA rival

BMW Australia is hoping to get its hands on a long-overdue front-wheel-drive 1 Series sedan model to rival the popular Audi A3 sedan and Mercedes-Benz CLA in 2017, provided it can secure right-hand-drive production. It's no secret that BMW is developing a compact sedan...

BMW M2 demand 'overwhelming', could sell out before launch

Australian demand for the yet-to-be-launched BMW M2 super-coupe is so strong that the company’s local arm is already talking to the factory about getting a bigger share of global production for its first year.  In fact, there’s the very real chance that Australia’s entire 2016 allocation of the newest and smallest BMW M car will be sold out before the car’s April launch — the same thing Ford faced with the Mustang...

BMW Australia to double electric footprint

BMW will greatly expand its presence in Australia's fledgling electrified vehicle space during 2016, with plans to add two plug-in hybrid models and double its network of registered ‘BMW i’ dealers.

BMW 7 Series four-cylinder not for Australia

Would you buy a four-cylinder BMW 7 Series? If you’re in Australia, it seems exceedingly unlikely, at least according to the brand’s local boss. Confirmation of a four-pot BMW 7 Series came this week when the company quietly added a new 730i variant to its Chinese and Turkish regions, assumedly with more to follow...

2015 BMW 3 16i Review

The bmw 316i m sport package is an amazing car. At first we were worried about the cargo space but we have not had any issues with it. The gas mileage is not that great but when we work it out it cost about the same as our old car. It is an extremely comfortable car there is so many seat adjustments that can be made...

2015 BMW X5 M50d Review

Ordered this car in late 2014 after considering the Merc ML and Range Rover. The X5 M50d wins out because of its brilliant tri-turbo diesel engine that has monumental 740 NM of torque yet returns under 7L per 100 (on paper). We had this car for more than half a year now and the average fuel consumption is just under 9L...

2012 BMW 3 28i Review

Having lived with my BMW 328i M-Sport for the last 3 years, I am in a good position to share my thoughts on this car. Coming from a Nissan X-trail, in search of a more enjoyable way to get from A to B, the BMW 328i has certainly fulfilled this role. I thought at the time, and still do today, the 328i is really the sweet spot in the 3 series range (F30 series)...

1989 BMW 3 Series Review

BMW is not normally a brand associated with cheap motoring, now days their cars are expensive and incredibly complicated. However what if I was to tell you that they may actually be one of the last beacons of light left for cheap and reliable fun on a tight budget. What I am talking about is the a 318i BMW of the e30 generation...
