2012 BMW 535i GT Review

So, after just over four years of ownership 'we' (well the other half) traded in our BMW 535i GT for a 440i Gran Coupe (yes, I know, first world, white people problems). Other half bought the car before we met, as at the time he had decided he wanted: a hatchback for the flexibility of carrying 'Stuff' a larger car than the 3 series Coupe The 535 (actually built on the 7 series platform) was an ex-company car from Brisbane BMW with about 9000km on it and it was at a knockdown price...

2016 BMW 125i Sportline review

  When looking for a new car last year, the last place I expected to end up was at a BMW dealership. Having always been an Audi fan, my first stop was to test drive an S3, followed by a Golf R. While both cars are good, they were both extremely fast and more expensive than what cash I was prepared to part with...

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...

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...

2016 BMW X3 xDrive 20i Review

We purchased a 2016 BMW X3 in September, after waiting 3 months from ordering the car to delivery. The process of tracking your shipping was equally exciting, and believe me, it was worth the wait. You get a sense of euphoria when you look at the car, whether it's interior or exterior, you can see it's been beautifully crafted...

2016 BMW X5 xDrive 30d Review

My brand new BMW arrived home with a few hiccups on its way from the USA to Australia. First of all when my car arrived at the dealer after what felt like years, they decided that the car needed to have a $3000 service and check up. Since the car had just come off the boat 2 days from when I had my car delivered, this so called "mandatory service" also included various fluid changes...

2013 BMW 1 16i Sportline Review

The F20 1 Series 116i M Sport manual was my second petrol turbo, previously I owned the Astra J 1.4 turbo. The Astra felt faster but was much heavier on fuel, I averaged 9.4l/100km with it and I averaged 7.9l/100kms with the Bimmer. The Bimmer is very comfortable for a car with a sport suspension and 18 inch rims...

2016 BMW 2 28i M-sport Review

I recently bought myself a 330i and had the pleasure of taking home (overnight) a 220i for my wife a few months later - that's where the romance began, my wife fell in love with it so another few months later I decided to update her car and decided to splurge out on the 228i, WOW, what an amazing coupe...

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...

2009 BMW 740li Review

A while ago I wanted to change cars and short listed a few, including my now owned 7 series. Why such a big car you ask? Well, it wasn't about the size as much as about comfort and technology. Thing is, I made a check list of features I wanted my car to have, ranging from integrated satellite navigation to heated seats for the cold winter...

2011 BMW X5 xDrive 30d Review

Just to let you, the reader, know: I've never actually driven this car. I am just 13, so I can’t legally drive and am writing this from the perspective of someone whose family has been fortunate to have had two X5s, and who loves reading car magazines and watching YouTube clips about cars. We have had our E70 X5 for about 4...
