2016 BMW X1 Review

The all-new 2016 BMW X1 has arrived. It's bigger, it's bolder and it is a lot more grown up. BMW are adamant that the new X1 is very much a proper AWD vehicle. We negotiate a series of off-road simulations to show how the car's capabilities continue to offer a solid amount of lifestyle flexibility. The X-Drive (AWD) models feel great on the road - the front-drive version comes in 2016...

Audi TT Quattro Sport v BMW 228i Sport : Comparison Review

One brief, two different approaches. It's AWD Audi against RWD BMW for the battle of the sports coupes.

2015 BMW X5 M v Porsche Cayenne Turbo : Comparison Review

Traditionally, the sportscar concept embraced lightness and simplicity – a less is more approach. Increasingly, though, the makers of the BMW X5 M from Munich and Porsche Cayenne Turbo from Stuttgart – together with Affalterbach arch rival Mercedes-AMG – threaten to burst the conventional ‘sportiness’ pigeonhole at the seams plying extensive feature lists, excess in luxury and extremes of high performance in formulating their range-leading Sport Utility Vehicles...

Audi A3 Cabriolet v BMW 2 Series Convertible : Comparison review

With the sunlight hours diminishing by the day, the Audi A3 Cabriolet and the BMW 2 Series Convertible may not be at the top of your automotive wish list. Ironically, however, as we’re busy digging out our trackies and Uggs in preparation for circa-20-degree days, our friends in parts of Europe are doing the same – though they’re stripping off snow jackets and boots (in place of our footy shorts and thongs) in anticipation of what they depressingly label ‘summer’...

BMW M5 Nighthawk and M5 White Shadow launched

The BMW M5 Pure announced this week may be getting the headlines, but the Bavarian brand has concurrently launched a pair of limited edition variants called the M5 Nighthawk and M5 White Shadow. A study in cosmetic contrast, each M5 edition gets a handful of extra features and are finished in either Frozen Black/Azurite Black metallic or Frozen White/Brilliant White metallic paintwork to stand out from the pack...

BMW M5 Pure launched at $185k, most affordable M5 in decades

The price of entry into a BMW M5 super-sedan has been slashed by about $45,000 with the introduction of a new, ‘stripped’ Pure edition this week, making it the cheapest M5 since the E34 of the early 1990s.  Echoing the approach BMW took with the M3 Pure in mid-2013, near the end of that iteration’s life cycle, the M5 Pure loses some luxury items, but also becomes a whole lot more accessible...

2014 BMW X5 xDrive 50i Review

My Lease was about to expire on my 2010 X5 30i, the retention manager from the BMW dealer calls me to ask if I was interested in upgrading. I was going to refinance my E70 but because of some negative equity problems I had to put some cash towards the re-finance. He then suggested the Full Circle Program which suited me more...

2006 BMW 3 30i Review

When my partner said "i want a new car" i shrieked - His taste is quite exquisite. (generally means expensive) After searching for a well performer, that would match with good city economy, for 3 months; this BMW E90 330i M-Sport popped up on CarSales at an out of state respected dealer. Asking a ridiculous price, and myself being a new vehicle salesman, i eagerly called and got to know a bit about it...

2004 BMW 5 30i Sport Review

We bought this baby approximately 2 years ago. It was an impulse buy which my partner thought was a good idea as he has always dreamed about owning a 5 series. At the time I had high doubts about buying a European car with 120,000kms that was 9 years old. But, (touch wood) there was little wrong with her...

2014 BMW 1 M135i Review

The formula is simple, it's one that has been proven time and time again. Take one relatively light car, place a relatively big engine in it and make sure the power exits through the rear wheels. Add some thoughtful concern for 50:50 weight distribution and you have what can be described as a fun drive, it's physics after all, you're working with the laws and not trying to fight them...
