2021 BMW 430i Coupe review

BMW has created a powerful, luxury coupe but is the kidney grille a worthwhile addition or an unnecessary distraction?

2021 BMW 4 Series review: Australian first drive

The 4 Series may not be as iconic as the 3 Series in BMW’s line-up, but, history be damned – this second-generation 4er upholds BMW’s traditional driver-centric ideals.

2020 BMW M550i xDrive Pure review

Is the 2020 BMW M550i xDrive Pure the German brand's best-kept secret? A real wolf in sheep's clothing – that isn't absurdly priced? James dials up the twin-turbo V8 to find out.

REVISIT: 2020 BMW M2 CS review

BMW's track-focused M2 CS is nearly upon us. As the swan song for this generation, we just had to get into one a little sooner than its mid-2020 Australian debut.

Video: 2021 BMW 4 Series Australian first drive review

The experiment worked. BMW’s attempt to separate the 4 Series range from the 3 Series by, well, calling it the 4 Series, has been successful enough to warrant a second generation.

Video: 2020 BMW M235i Gran Coupe v Mercedes-AMG A35 sedan comparison

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?

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.

2001 BMW 330Ci review

I've owned my 330Ci for just over a year now. My previous car history has been a Subaru Liberty (4th Gen 3.0), a BMW 135i ('09 E82), and a Mazda MX-5 ('99 NB8A), with each being manual. The MX-5 lasted me four years but needed some more space, and considering I'd almost gotten an E46 for my first car, I was bound to inevitably come full circle and get one...

2018 BMW M140i review

Ah, finally, cruising in the BMW M140i! A sporty, practical, 5-door, 5-seat, 250kW, 500Nm beast! Before we get to the Beemer, let me tell you how I came to choosing it. So I was trapped in the YouTube black hole for many months; Golf R, second hand M2, etc etc. I drove the Golf R and was very impressed with it...

2008 BMW M3 review

My story begun when I was a young. I have always been into performance cars and as I grew up becoming more financially capable, I set out to save enough money to find my dream car. Being at the age of 20, my main criteria for the car were cheap and fast, not a hatch, manual trans and preferably a coupe...

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...
