BMW M235i Convertible Review

The BMW M235i Convertible represents fast and fun ragtop motoring. But who is it really made for?

2015 BMW 2 Series Active Tourer Review: LT1

It’s hard to imagine a BMW that doesn’t have a direct connection from the engine to the rear wheels. Then again, not too long ago it would’ve been hard to imagine a BMW that was a mixture of a hatch and a people-mover. But as the first front-wheel-drive BMW MPV, the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer breaks all sorts of conventions, for all the right reasons...

Car technology: driving on a flat run flat tyre

Read the article here. What are run flat tyres? Essentially an RFT is a self-supporting tyre with a very different construction to that of a conventional pneumatic tyre. The sidewall is made of thicker rubber and has been reinforced to make it stiffer. It's this section that will bear the weight once the air pressure is gone...

Did you know that running your fingers along the radio preset buttons in a BMW displays where it leads on the iDrive screen? Dave Zalstein shows you what we mean.

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.

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 2 Series Active Tourer v Mercedes-Benz B-Class v Citroen C4 Picasso : Comparison review

Names can be deliberately suggestive. Out of nowhere the other day – actually not quite, as it was published in the newspaper that day ahead of, say, conflict in Syria – my better half decided to send me a list titled ‘most attractive baby names of 2015’. Topping the list were Alessandro for blokes and Scarlett for girls, as voted by people on a website somewhere (it was that kinda poll)...

The 2017 BMW 2 Series coupe and convertible range has landed in Australia, bringing new 230i and M240i variants, along with the addition of more standard equipment across the range.

Seven cars Australians should buy more of: 2016 mid-year report

You may have seen our hugely popular list of cars that Aussies should be buying, but aren’t. And while it hasn’t done anything to improve the fortunes of the Peugeot 308 – despite our vehement insistence that it is one of the cars that should get small car purchasers through the door – the response was excellent...

BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe coming with M2 flagship - report

The next-generation BMW 2 Series range will reportedly stick to its rear-wheel-drive roots, and will also spawn a new four- or five-door body style. Insiders have told Autocar that BMW will replace the two-door 2 Series range in 2020, and that the new coupe and convertible may be preceded in 2019 by a new sports sedan variant to be known as the 2 Series Gran Coupe...

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...

2015 BMW 2 Series Review

The BMW “New Class”, most well known for the venerable 2002 Turbo, was something of a saving grace for a company that was struggling through a post-war financial crisis. It also created a dynamic precedent, one the German marque has tried valiantly to uphold. Either on-track or on-road, the 2002 created a cult following...

2014 BMW 2 Series M235i Review

I have only owned my BMW M235i for a month but I know enough to realise that this machine is amazing. But first I'll start with some of the more boring stuff.
