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...

2003 BMW 525i Sport review

Depreciation is both a gift and a curse, depending on who you speak to. For the first owner of this 2003 BMW 525i Sport (series E39), I think she might be the latter. For a car approaching 15 years old, it has lost over 90 per cent of its value, or over $90,000! I would be pretty upset myself. But I am not, as I am on the other side of this capitalist construct...

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...
