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...

Luxury sedan comparison part two: Audi A6 v BMW 5 Series v Jaguar XF v Mercedes-Benz E-Class

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...

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...

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...
