Subaru Forester v BMW X1 Comparison

Read the full review here. Bringing the 2016 Subaru Forester XT Premium and 2016 BMW X1 sDrive 20i together for a head-to-head gunfight isn’t quite as left field as it might seem. Pricing is close – only $3610 between the starting prices – and both are positioned as affordable family SUVs at the smaller end of the scale.

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...

BMW Australia talks manual gearbox sales

BMW’s sales figures suggest there is still a market for passenger cars with manual gearboxes in Australia, albeit a small one. Unlike many luxury brands, and even some mainstream ones, which have discontinued the manual option from their products here in response to minuscule demand, you can still opt to shift your own cogs in several BMWs...

BMW Australia's M Division booming, but Mercedes-AMG and Audi have the edge

BMW Australia’s hardcore M and warmed-up M Performance divisions are both showing strong growth in 2016, as local buyers continue to flock to hotted-up cars despite our low speed limits. The Munich marque's success at this end of the market partially mirrors even stronger performances from rivals Audi and Mercedes-AMG...

The 2017 BMW 1 Series hatchback debuted this week with a fairly significant mid-life update to keep it sharp against the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz A-Class, and maintain sales momentum into the new year.

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...

2016 BMW 2 28i M-sport Review

I recently bought myself a 330i and had the pleasure of taking home (overnight) a 220i for my wife a few months later - that's where the romance began, my wife fell in love with it so another few months later I decided to update her car and decided to splurge out on the 228i, WOW, what an amazing coupe...

2008 BMW 3 25i Review

Have had my MY08 BMW E92 325i a few years now and it's still a treat to drive with the looks to boot. Comfortable, safe and a pleasure to drive from a 10min shopping run to the weekend drive. The 2.5ltr 160kW engine has enough power as a daily drive and the 6 speed auto/Steptronic is smooth but lively if needed...

2009 BMW 740li Review

  A while ago I wanted to change cars and short listed a few, including my now owned 7 series. Why such a big car you ask? Well, it wasn't about the size as much as about comfort and technology. Thing is, I made a check list of features I wanted my car to have, ranging from integrated satellite navigation to heated seats for the cold winter...
