The little M3 that could

With the new M3 (and M4) polarising opinion around the world, it's timely to look back at where it all began.

2020 BMW X2 sDrive18i review

BMW’s smallest SUV may not be its cheapest, but can style stand in for substance?

2020 BMW X5 M50i review

BMW isn’t the first brand you’d associate with muscle cars in 2020, but the X5 M50i is, surprisingly der muskelwagen among full-size prestige SUVs.

2020 BMW X3 xDrive20d review

The entry-level, diesel-powered X3 represents a practical – if a little pedestrian – option for luxury SUV shoppers.

Which is quicker in the real world? We throw former racing driver Ian Dyk the keys to find out in a series a performance tests.

2020 BMW X5 M review

The BMW X5 M was one of the pioneers of the super-fast SUV segment, but cars like this are still an engineering marvel. How anyone can make a 2.3-tonne lump of metal slip through the air like a teardrop – even though it has the aerodynamic efficiency of a block of flats – boggles the mind.

2020 BMW Z4 sDrive20i v Toyota GR Supra GT comparison

They’re twins under the skin and both famous nameplates. But if you’re after the best driver’s car for about $90,000, do you pick the German roadster or Japanese coupe?

RANGE REVIEW: 2020 BMW 3 Series – which model should you buy?

The BMW 3 Series family currently comprises four engine and spec-level choices, kicking off with the 320i (there’s no 318i for now). Next step is the volume-selling 330i, then there’s the left-field 330e plug-in hybrid (PHEV), and finally the M340i xDrive flagship in lieu of the yet-to-be-released new M3 coming soon enough...

2020 BMW 330i v Jaguar XE HSE comparison review

Can the new BMW 3 Series reclaim its Best Mid-sized Sports Sedan crown from the Jaguar XE?

2020 BMW M550i v Audi S6 comparison

Heavy-hitting performance and high levels of luxury meet in this pair of stately sedans.

2020 BMW X5 M50i v Mercedes-AMG GLE53 comparison

A family SUV doesn't make a great sports car, and vice-versa. These two bulked-up family freighters buck the trend, with one in particular doing a very convincing job of being both things.

2019 BMW X4 M40i review

It's an SUV that isn't boring. It's a machine that's versatile. Want to overtake that Camry driver doing 20 'kays under in a 100 zone? Want an SUV that's practical and fast? Want an SUV that's built with passion and excitement? Well the M40i is the car you need. It's not your average run-of-the-mill SUV; it's a beast that will pop and burble every time you start it up, and it will scream whenever you overtake someone...

2020 BMW 330i M Sport review

I looked at three cars; the Audi A4, the Mercedes CLA250 and this 330i M-Sport and I found that the BMW was more comfortable inside and the finish was far superior. The car was smooth and the gear changes were also smooth. I found the acceleration was more than what most would need. The technology in this car far exceeds many other cars in this price range...

2018 BMW X3 xDrive30d M Sport review

I have driven my X3 30D for over two years and 35000km now and I have been very happy with the ownership experience. I bought this model due to the quality, space of the cabin, and value for money considering the features and superb driving traits. The power and economy of the 6-cylinder, 3.0-litre, 195kW/620Nm diesel is simply outstanding...

2003 BMW 330i review

Late 90s/early 2000s European cars have always appealed to me. Considered by some as the golden age for the likes of Audi and BMW, nothing, to me at least, can beat them. So, when the time came for me to purchase a car, it seemed the logical choice. However, before I go any further, a quick disclaimer: I’m a high school student finishing my last year, so I don’t have years of motoring experience under my belt...
