2017 BMW X5 xDrive 30d Review

Back in April of this year, our X5 sDrive 25d was in at our local BMW dealership getting some work carried out on it. During this time, my family was given the opportunity to drive around in the big brother of our X5, the xDrive 30d, for just under a month...

1994 BMW M3 review

My interest in motorsport came at a young age, with fond memories of watching the Group A touring car championship in the early 1990s. The cars were so exciting to watch, and the appeal to me was the diverse range of manufactures that entered the championship...

2005 BMW 120i review

The day I had $60k to drop on a new car, I went shopping for a Golf. I wanted a multi-use hatchback. The key criteria was 'that a lawnmower would go cleanly into the back'. I test drove a Golf, only to discover the car had been designed such that the dash, clocks and gauges were outside my visual range. I couldn't even read the speedo! So I went for a peep at the 1 Series Hatch...

2008 BMW 335i review

This is my BMW E92 335i M Sport Coupe with M6 wheels and M division suspension and brakes. Firstly, from the new generation BMWs, I was always in love with the E92 coupe styling, from the moment they arrived. The sharp body line and wedge-like shape, and especially the additions BMW added to the M3 platform...

2009 BMW M3 review

M3 drivers have no friends." – Jeremy Clarkson "[The] M3 is one of the most perfectly balanced machines ever created by man." – also Jeremy Clarkson It was the same old story, told many times before... Young man buys Porsche. Young man finds girlfriend. Young man marries girlfriend. Young man sells Porsche...

2017 BMW M140i review

On 27 May 2005, beside a roaring log fire at Darley’s Restaurant, my then fiancé took one sip of the 1976 Grange I had splashed out on for our engagement dinner and immediately announced to the waiter and myself, “Oh wow, that’s lovely, you have the rest darling”. It was as if she was reading from a script and I had written it...

2016 BMW I3 Hybrid review

Don’t worry, I've heard it all before. You would be surprised at the number of people who have come up to me and asked me: "what is that car?" You also may be surprised at the number of people who comment on its looks; both positive and negative remarks. Either way it is a car that prompts conversation and I think that is a good thing...

2017 BMW 118i M Sport review

We recently moved to Queensland and before arriving had a new Chrysler 300 SRT which was perhaps the most incredible car we'd ever owned! The BMW 118i is a far cry in almost every respect however, different needs (garage size) required a small car...

2015 BMW X3 xDrive 28i Review

The all-new and technologically advanced G01 BMW X3 has been released in the US, becoming the German marque’s freshest SUV. Debuting a new design language for future X models – borrowed largely from the new X1 – this X3 marks a step forward from its hugely successful predecessor in terms of technology, luxury and driving dynamics...

2016 BMW 330i Touring M-Sport review

First impressions. So, I've picked up my November, 2016, 8000km, ex-BMW Australia, 330i Touring M-Sport and in our first week together we have covered about 1000km...

2012 BMW X3 xDrive 30d review

I've always wanted a BMW, ever since visiting the BMW outlet in Munich, Germany... it was just a matter of what model. And when. I have always hunkered for an M3 – but the practicalities versus cost equation did not add up. When the F25 X3 model was released, I grabbed a brochure and stuck a few photos on the fridge... this was in 2012...
