2018 BMW 630i Gran Turismo M Sport review

The name has plenty of evocative cues, but the BMW 6 Series GT isn’t a member of the German brand’s sporting family. Instead, it's attempting to inject a sense of style into the practical side of people-carrying.

2018 BMW M5 review

The all-new sixth-generation BMW M5 is the fastest M car ever built by the German skunkworks. And it's also, arguably, the greatest BMW ever.

2018 BMW 220i Luxury Line review

Gone are the days when even the most mundane of automobiles had a stylish coupe derivative, but BMW has a stoic reputation for two-door compact cars. A tradition that continues with the 2 Series range, which gets a few subtle updates to keep it ticking in 2018.

2018 BMW X3 xDrive20d review

If you have settled on the BMW X3, the next hardest thing will be deciding on which specification to buy. Paul Maric tries out the entry-level diesel to see if it's worth the asking price.

2018 BMW X2 review: X1 goes 'coupe'!

The 2018 BMW X2 piles on the good looks in its pitch as a premium small crossover player, but does it have substance to match its sporty looks?

2018 Audi RS5 v BMW M4 Competition comparison

You could call a comparison between the 2018 Audi RS5 and 2018 BMW M4 Competition a battle of ethos. A battle, if you will, of two different ways of solving the same problem. Which problem? Delivering a blindingly fast, somewhat affordable track weapon that needs to be used every day. It’s not an easy conundrum to solve either...

2018 Audi Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro S tronic sport v BMW X1 xDrive25i comparison

It doesn't seem to matter which end of the income scale you might be sitting at, the world can't get enough of SUVs – big or small. The choice between make, model and variant is as difficult as ever, even in the premium compact segment.

2018 BMW M140i v Volkswagen Golf R comparison

If you've got $60,000 to spend on a hot hatch, you really need to have these two at the very top of your list. They are the 2018 BMW M140i and the 2018 Volkswagen Golf R. BMW recently dropped the price of the M140i to $59,990 (plus on-road costs), meaning that it's now within earshot of the kitted-out Golf R, which is priced from $53,490 (plus on-road costs)...

BMW: Fresh digital instruments, infotainment coming soon

As its rivals have abandoned traditional instrument binnacles for screens, BMW has made a conscious effort to remember its roots.

2017 BMW 330i M-Sport review

Looks? Tick. Sporty performance? Tick. A ride that won't totally destroy your lumbar spine? Tick. The purchase of my 2017-plated 330i was a big change from the cars I have previously owned (Think WRX/Golf GTI), and being an ageing millennial it was time to change into something a little bit more mature...

2014 BMW M135i review

I purchased the M135i when searching for a hot-hatch replacement to my Renault Megane RS250. After the test drive, there was no way I could not buy it. The power of a 3.0-litre turbocharged straight six with torque produced just off idle and an exhaust note to die for was a recipe for drool. I was never, and still am not, a huge fan of the look as I generally like my cars to stand out a little more...

1995 BMW 318i review

I’m CarAdvice’s senior editor, which means I have the privilege and honour of covering the industry for Australia’s best auto title. As such, I’m never without a new car or three to evaluate. But as amazing as such a job is, I’ve always thought it important to have a palate cleanser. Driving something older, with character, gives a great contrast...

2016 BMW M4 Competition review

For most of my adult life, I have wanted a BMW M3 (back then it only came in coupe form). Since the M4 convertible came out, it has been on the top of my bucket list. With an all-consuming compulsion induced by an early onset of midlife crisis (and an augmenting mortgage), I ordered an ice white M4 Competition convertible with lava red leather (aka Sakhir Orange) in June 2016...
