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...

BMW M3 Review – featuring E92

Before you read any deeper into this BMW M3 review, let me declare some bias. I’m more of an M3 person than an M4 one. It’s not just about the four-door practicality, as most M3 generations sold in Australia have been coupes; or the fact the M3 saves you $10K over the M4; it’s also about that badge...

Drag Race: Australia vs The World: HSV GTSR W1 v BMW M3 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S v Alfa Romeo Giulia QV

Read the full article here. 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.

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.

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...

BMW M four-cylinder engine unlikely, unless electrified

BMW’s M Division says it will not produce a small-capacity high-performance turbocharged four-cylinder engine until it can find the right way to counter the deficits of such a power unit with electrification.

BMW M looking at hybrids and electrification

BMW’s high-performance M cars are likely to adopt some form of electrification from 2021 in order to give additional performance whilst also meeting ever stringent emission regulations. Speaking to Australian motoring media at the Frankfurt motor show, Klaus Fröhlich, member of the board of management at BMW, said that once battery technology and electric motors are light and compact enough, they will make sense for implementation on BMW M vehicles...

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...
