BMW 3 Series Owner Car Reviews

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...

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...

2016 BMW 3 40i M-sport Review

Beautifully built. Comfortable and quiet with the engine purring if you want or snarling if that is your thing. M sport brakes are a good option and better to have than variable steering. I do not understand the comments about the standard steering, which makes for a sharp ride on straights or in corners...

2015 BMW 3 16i Review

The bmw 316i m sport package is an amazing car. At first we were worried about the cargo space but we have not had any issues with it. The gas mileage is not that great but when we work it out it cost about the same as our old car. It is an extremely comfortable car there is so many seat adjustments that can be made...

2012 BMW 3 28i Review

Having lived with my BMW 328i M-Sport for the last 3 years, I am in a good position to share my thoughts on this car. Coming from a Nissan X-trail, in search of a more enjoyable way to get from A to B, the BMW 328i has certainly fulfilled this role. I thought at the time, and still do today, the 328i is really the sweet spot in the 3 series range (F30 series)...

1989 BMW 3 Series Review

BMW is not normally a brand associated with cheap motoring, now days their cars are expensive and incredibly complicated. However what if I was to tell you that they may actually be one of the last beacons of light left for cheap and reliable fun on a tight budget. What I am talking about is the a 318i BMW of the e30 generation...

1985 BMW 3 Series Review

When one sees a used car advertisement that essentially says, "30 year old European car, modified by previous owner" it usually leads to the reader immediately closing whichever type of media is being browsed and retreating to a safe distance. I however have always been one that buys with the heart and not the head, which explains how I not only responded to the ad, but also how that old European relic now sits proudly in my garage...

2006 BMW 3 Series Review

Do you pay for just a name when buying a luxury car? Lets find out. It can be said that the 330i is a model that is often forgotten because of the astonishing success of the 335i. Its the last 3.0 litre naturally aspirated straight six engine to bless the 3 series and its very likely we will not see any more naturally aspirated engines in the BMW lineup in this era of forced induction engines...

1997 BMW 3 Series Review

There are few things in the automotive world that make a bolder statement than a cosmos black BMW. There aren't too many manufacturers that have ever come close to matching the aggressive yet stylistic lines that unmistakably characterise the German Manufacturer and set it apart from the rest...

1988 BMW 3 Series Review

Why on earth would you want to buy a 27 year old German car? I'm glad you asked. Driver Engagement We live in a wonderful world of automatic cruise control and 7 speed dual clutch gearboxes. Wonderfully boring, that is. With a 126kW, 2...

2002 BMW 3 Series Review

A Mid Life Crisis, I think so. Brand new the BMW 330ci was listing for around $120k back in 2002. It was around 3k more than its respective brother the Coupe 330ci. That was a fair bit of money back over 10 years ago to be earning but the standard of living was cheaper. It came with everything as standard that most Toyota's and Mazda's could ever dream of...
