With extra luxury bundled in, does the 2015 BMW 535i have what it takes to make it to the finish line...

BMW 5 Series v Hyundai Genesis : Comparison review

Some might argue this is a pointless test. They’d say there’s not a chance in a fiery underworld that luxury car buyers entranced by the German badges could be swayed by one wearing the Hyundai ‘H’. Yet if it were accepted that unexpected upstarts couldn’t challenge the Germans, then everyone might have ignored a car that in 1989 spooked Audi, BMW and Mercedes with its remarkable build quality and regal levels of refinement...

2017 BMW 5 Series sedan and Touring wagon rendered

Speculative renderings of the next-generation BMW 5 Series sedan and Touring have surfaced online, offering a glimpse at what the luxury mid-sizer may look like when it makes its debut. Once again, Dutch artist Remco Meulendijk has created a set of renderings for both the 5 Series sedan and the 5 Series Touring wagon - likely based on the several prototypes that have been spied testing over the past year...

2017 BMW M5 sedan and 5 Series wagon spied with less camouflage

The next-generation BMW M5 sedan and the BMW 5 Series wagon have both spotted on the streets of Germany revealing more details than ever before. There certainly hasn't be a shortage of spy photos of the next-generation 5 Series and M5 on CarAdvice over the last year...

2017 BMW 5 Series M Sport sedan exterior and interior spy photos

Our spy photographers have landed yet another cache of photos of the next-generation BMW 5 Series. This time our team has come upon the new 5 Series sedan in M Sport trim. Compared to earlier sedan and wagon prototypes, this M Sport sedan is wearing different front and rear bumpers. Up front, as you'd expect, there are larger, and more aggressively styled lower air intakes...

1994 BMW 540i Review

My wife drives a 2014 F10 LCI BMW 520d (“Luxury” model according to the badge). I get the impression that while she may not be disgruntled, she is far from being gruntled with it. That’s a little unfair because the 520d has never put a foot wrong. It does a lot of miles taking her to work and taking us and our two young boys all over Sydney...

2006 BMW 5 Series Review

Some people buy a BMW to show off the propeller roundel when handing over the key to a valet jockey while their snooty friends watch with envy. To these people, nothing I write here like fuel economy, cost of maintaining the car or second hand value will make any difference. When their car celebrates the 2nd birthday, they are out shopping for the next Mercedes or Audi...

1993 BMW 5 Series Review

While the marque of BMW still sits high on the throne of luxury motoring, the passages of time and the help of depreciation means sitting yourself in one of Ingolstadts finest is easier than ever. In fact the possibility of getting behind the wheel of a BMW these days is all but just a few grand away...

2001 BMW 5 Series Review

Like most people, I use all of my limbs on a regular basis. And even if I didn't, I would still like the option. I can't justify swapping an arm and a leg for a brand new, top of the range BMW 5 series. However as a used car, the idea makes a lot more sense. The vehicle in question is this midnight blue 2001 E39 540i sedan...
