We all see it on the TV, motor racing is a fast-paced, adrenaline-fuelled hive of action that is over as soon as it starts.

The 2017 Bathurst 12 Hour is a big deal, and more than 50 teams are vying for a competitive spot on the podium...

A limited-edition 3 Series to celebrate a century of BMW, James takes the 2016 BMW 330i 100 Year Edition for a spin.

Five of the coolest new driving cockpits

Slide on in to the drivers seat, shut the door, put your hands on the steering wheel and look around as you feel the excitement and power envelop you. The driver's seat is the control centre of any vehicle and how it looks, feels and functions is vital to the driving experience. The cockpit of a car includes everything in the driver's pod, from the seat to the instrumentation and steering wheel...

2017 BMW M140i review

As far as sporting surprises go, the BMW M140i is right up at the top of the pile. Its all-round sporting ability is matched by daily practicality and a fly-under-the-radar persona.

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...

2018 BMW X2 Concept - 2016 Paris Motor Show

BMW M4 GTS v M3 CSL: The latest and greatest at the 2017 Bathurst 12 Hour

In and of itself, this year's 2017 Bathurst 12 Hour truly was an epic affair – just read Rob Margeit's race-day recap or Tom Fraser's BMW M6 GT3 behind the scenes special. The folks at BMW Australia invited CarAdvice along to the monster Bathurst 12 Hour race weekend held at the iconic Mount Panorama Circuit, and they also surprised by giving us limited access to two very special vehicles: the 2017 BMW M4 GTS and the 2003 BMW M3 CSL...

2017 BMW M140i v Ford Focus RS comparison

We’ll admit a comparison test between the BMW M140i and Ford Focus RS doesn’t seem particularly logical on the surface, but there’s a method to the madness. Each demonstrates a different methodology for doing the same thing — turning a garden variety small hatchback into a bona fide road weapon...

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...

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...
