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...

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

The choice between the BMW M4 and Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupe is an extremely difficult one. Not because both cars are excellent overall, but because they are so different. Having previously compared the M3 against the C 63 S sedan, the reason for this two-door comparison was rather simple...

Luxury sedan comparison part two: Audi A6 v BMW 5 Series v Jaguar XF v Mercedes-Benz E-Class

It's time for the final showdown, where the winner of last month's luxury sedan test goes wheel-to-wheel in a winner-takes all fight against three of the established, premium (and German) stalwarts. That means our Jaguar XF has returned to battle for the British against the Teutonic might of the establishment: the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class...

BMW 6 Series Old v New: 2016 650i v 1984 635CSi

There is something about a big, grand touring coupe that just works. Not cheap. Not practical. Not really anything more than a personal extravagance. And yet, so satisfying. The long bonnets, flowing lines, and big, relaxed engines are the kinds of emotive hardware that songs have been written about...

2012 BMW 5 Series GT, 7 Series, Rolls-Royce Ghost recalled for safety fix

UPDATE: The Rolls-Royce model affected was listed incorrectly on the government recalls website. It was the Ghost Series I affected, not the Phantom.

Next BMW M5 to uphold rear-drive philosophy, with a twist

The world of high-performance super sedans is like a game of chess. Moves and counter moves.

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...

2016 BMW X3 xDrive 20i Review

We purchased a 2016 BMW X3 in September, after waiting 3 months from ordering the car to delivery. The process of tracking your shipping was equally exciting, and believe me, it was worth the wait. You get a sense of euphoria when you look at the car, whether it's interior or exterior, you can see it's been beautifully crafted...

2016 BMW X5 xDrive 30d Review

My brand new BMW arrived home with a few hiccups on its way from the USA to Australia. First of all when my car arrived at the dealer after what felt like years, they decided that the car needed to have a $3000 service and check up. Since the car had just come off the boat 2 days from when I had my car delivered, this so called "mandatory service" also included various fluid changes...

2013 BMW 1 16i Sportline Review

The F20 1 Series 116i M Sport manual was my second petrol turbo, previously I owned the Astra J 1.4 turbo. The Astra felt faster but was much heavier on fuel, I averaged 9.4l/100km with it and I averaged 7.9l/100kms with the Bimmer. The Bimmer is very comfortable for a car with a sport suspension and 18 inch rims...
