2017 BMW M3 30 Jahre: A step back in time

Where were you in 1987? For me, I was busy being born. But if you were old enough to remember, you more than likely would’ve been sporting the coolest mullet in town or wearing brightly coloured leg warmers while dancing to Belinda Carlisle’s Heaven is a Place on Earth. Yes, there were a lot of cringeworthy moments in the '80s, but there was also some moments to be proud of...

2016 BMW M3 Competition review

For me, BMW's M3 Competition is the perfect blend of looks, performance, handling and practicality, as well as being loaded with all the latest mod-cons to make life comfortable.

2016 BMW M3 and M4 Competition Review

The new Competition updates promise to flex more M3 and M4 muscles. So are the new boys on the block a revelation or just mild evolution?

Drag race: Australia vs The World

Australia. It's the country where there's always an insect, animal or sea creature trying to kill you. It's also the country that once housed a thriving car industry. But, instead of crying over spilt milk, we're showing the world one last time why the constant fear of death has inspired our local engineers to build a car that's itching at the chance to chew you up and spit you out...

Alfa Romeo Giulia QV v BMW M3 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S comparison

For a nation renowned for its love of all things sport, it should come as no surprise this admiration and aspiration extends to what we drive. We are inside the top-10 world sales market list for Lamborghini, Porsche is seeing continuing sales growth and both Mercedes-AMG and BMW M Division speak highly of the Australian market, where we have the highest performance-version to regular-model ratio in the world...

BMW M4 GTS v M3 CSL: The latest and greatest at the 2017 Bathurst 12 Hour

In and of itself, this year's 2017 Bathurst 12 Hour truly was an epic affair – just read Rob Margeit's race-day recap or Tom Fraser's BMW M6 GT3 behind the scenes special. The folks at BMW Australia invited CarAdvice along to the monster Bathurst 12 Hour race weekend held at the iconic Mount Panorama Circuit, and they also surprised by giving us limited access to two very special vehicles: the 2017 BMW M4 GTS and the 2003 BMW M3 CSL...

2017 BMW M3 'facelift facelift' heading to Geneva

Following recent news of an LCI (life-cycle impulse) update to the BMW 4 Series range, which includes the M4, comes a mild update to its four-door stablemate, the M3. Wait, you say. Didn’t the M3 score an update as part of the 3 Series LCI in 2016? Yes it did, but just to keep you on your toes, it’s had another one. Albeit, very minor...

2009 BMW M3 Review

It isn't often that one gets the chance to talk about the cars that have made an impression on one's life... I have a four-door E90 BMW M3. It takes my breath away every time I drive it. The motor is a masterpiece and is coupled to the DCT gearbox that marries the usability and comfort of a full auto with the hard edged racing-style performance of an affordable supercar...

2012 BMW M3 PURE EDITION II Review

My M3 coupe is a Jan 2012 registered car. Finished in Mineral White, it includes the Competition package. The vehicle is amazing. Having previously owned a 335i, I can dispel the myth that the M3 is just an upgraded 335i. It is a totally different car altogether. Around town the car performs brilliantly. The ride is firm yet comfortable...
