2018 BMW 530i Touring review

Traditional large luxury wagons are thin on the ground these days, but BMW’s extra-practical 5 Series variant is a persuasive alternative to a posh SUV.

2018 BMW X2 review

The first-ever BMW X2 piles on the good looks in its pitch as a premium small crossover player. But does it have substance to match its sporty looks?

2018 BMW 430i Gran Coupe LCI review

How does the ageing but newly updated BMW 430i Gran Coupe stand up against the latest liftback offerings in the premium market?

2018 BMW 118i LCI review

The 2018 BMW 118i is the most affordable Bimmer you can buy, but it certainly isn't cheap. In fact, it's every bit the BMW it should be.

2018 BMW X2 review: X1 goes 'coupe'!

The 2018 BMW X2 piles on the good looks in its pitch as a premium small crossover player, but does it have substance to match its sporty looks?

BMW M140i v M240i: Hot hatch, hot coupe... which to get?

Hot hatch, hot coupe... pros and cons to both, so which should you be looking at? Curt and Adam put that question to the test.

2018 BMW M5 review

Six generations on, and BMW's M Division has produced its finest sedan yet, the 2018 M5. A genuine tour de force in every respect.

2018 BMW M140i v Ford Focus RS LE v Honda Civic Type R comparison

Front-wheel drive has been part of the classic hot-hatch formula since the genre was ignited in the 1970s. The layout would dominate any all-time-greats list for the category, featuring the likes of the Peugeot 205 GTI, Renault Megane RS, and of course Volkswagen Golf GTI (Marks III and IV excepted!). Yet, there have long been exceptions, of course...

2018 BMW M4 Pure v M4 CS comparison

If there’s validation in twin-testing the 2017 BMW M4 Pure and the 2017 M4 CS – the most affordable and priciest variants of the Em-Four stable right now – I need to unearth it quick smart. Not merely in an attempt at relevant buying advice for you, dear reader, but also to justify why I needed to burn the fuel and rubber of two of BMW’s finest performers across some of Australia’s finest driving roads for a couple of days to those who dwell up on high in the CarAdvice ivory tower...

2018 BMW M140i v M240i comparison

With its combination of 250kW/500Nm turbocharged six-cylinder power, rear drive and choice of manual or automatic transmission shoehorned into a small five-door body shell, the BMW M140 LCI was one of 2017's most unique and highly anticipated offerings for the discerning petrolhead. Better still, BMW wiped five grand from this mid-life updated version of the range-topping small hatchback...

BMW, Nissan lead criticism over lack of government support for EVs

Two pioneering manufacturers in the electric vehicle (EV) market, BMW and Nissan, have called on the Australian Federal Government to incentivise buyers of low-emission cars, citing evidence from Europe, Asia and North America...

2013 BMW X5 and X6 added to Takata recall

BMW Australia has recalled X5 and X6 models sold in 2013 to replace the driver (and passenger, in some cases) airbag inflator. The company says metal fragments could shoot out of the Takata airbag inflators currently installed in affected cars, causing "serious injury or fatality" in the process...

2013 BMW X5 xDrive 50i Sport review

We had an addition in the family, so I opted for an SUV, and in this case SAV. I always wanted a BMW, so I decided to get my first BMW X5. I have driven BMWs before, as my family previously had different BMWs including an 750i, 335i M Sport, 335is convertible and an M4. I'm stating this to let the readers know that I am an experienced BMW driver...

2017 BMW 330i M-Sport review

We are fortunate enough to have a loan car for a couple of weeks as we wait for our new car, so I figured I should write a short review of it while I had the chance. It is a 2017 BMW 330i finished in BMW’s hallmark colour of Alpine White. The 3 Series is indisputably BMW’s signature model...

2015 BMW i8 Hybrid review

In psychology there is a term call cognitive dissonance, which is having two mentally contradictory thoughts. It is, apparently, very uncomfortable. I can only liken it to that moment when you, as a child, picked up that large present from one of your older relatives – in my case, my grandmother...

2017 BMW X5 xDrive 30d Review

Back in April of this year, our X5 sDrive 25d was in at our local BMW dealership getting some work carried out on it. During this time, my family was given the opportunity to drive around in the big brother of our X5, the xDrive 30d, for just under a month...
