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...

BMW Z4M: Waiting on another? Don't count on it

While Toyota fanboys set the internet on fire speculating about the huge gaps in the publicly disclosed information about the new Supra, BMW has been much more forthright about its sister car, the forthcoming BMW Z4. We’ve already driven a prototype version of the Z, and been told by the BMW team engineering it that the Toyota will share all of its major components including the same engines...

Autonomy will kill BMW M manuals

The manual gearbox might be living on a serious time overdraft in many parts of the world, but BMW’s M Division has no plans to stop offering it any time soon. When we spoke to boss Frank Van Meel at the launch of the M2 and M5 Competition earlier this week, he said we can expect to still have the option of a stick shift, even as the company moves to its new, modular fifth-generation architecture...

2004 BMW 735i review

The polarising fourth-generation BMW 7 Series (BMW designation E65) was released to public view at the 2001 Frankfurt Motor Show. A rolling monument to the state of German engineering prowess, the BMW E65 introduced a host of features that can be found on many cars even today, albeit at the time was met with scepticism and even criticism...

2016 BMW X1 xDrive 20d review

  A Note from the Editior: A stock image has been supplied with this review. There are so many options in this segment of the car market, and a lot of people will have their short list of the Audi Q3, Mercedes GLA and the BMW X1 that my parents bought. Being 16 and on my Ls, I have been thrown into many cars and I love them, so here is my review on the 2016 BMW X1...

2017 BMW X3 xDrive 20d M-sport review

1969 was a fantastic year. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped foot on the moon, the Concord flew to Australia, Richard Nixon, aka Tricky Dicky, was preparing to be scandalous and – more importantly to the six-year-old me – Skippy the Bush Kangaroo appeared in Canberra. People lined the streets to catch a glimpse of the marsupial superstar...

2014 BMW M4 review

It’s been over three years since I took delivery of my 2014 BMW F82 M4 with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT), and I have covered around 16,000km. The M4 is a relatively large two-door coupe that has two usable rear seats and a generous boot, making it a practical daily driver.
