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 230i LCI review

A two-door Beemer with performance credentials for under $70,000 – sounds like a good deal. But, is the 2018 BMW 230i the pick of the bunch or are you better off with the cheaper BMW M140i?

2017 BMW M240i review

The BMW M2 may have stolen all the headlines, but perhaps the best of BMW's sports coupe lies a little further down the range. James takes a spin in the 250kW BMW M240i.

BMW M140i v M240i: Hot hatch, hot coupe... which to get?

Hot hatch, hot coupe... pros and cons to both, so which should you be looking at? Curt and Adam put that question to the test.

2017 BMW M240i review

The BMW M2 may have stolen all the headlines, but perhaps the best all-role BMW sports coupe lies a little further down the range. James takes a spin in the 250kW BMW M240i.

Car technology: driving on a flat run flat tyre

Read the article here. What are run flat tyres? Essentially an RFT is a self-supporting tyre with a very different construction to that of a conventional pneumatic tyre. The sidewall is made of thicker rubber and has been reinforced to make it stiffer. It's this section that will bear the weight once the air pressure is gone...

Did you know that running your fingers along the radio preset buttons in a BMW displays where it leads on the iDrive screen? Dave Zalstein shows you what we mean.

2018 BMW M140i v M240i comparison

With its combination of 250kW/500Nm turbocharged six-cylinder power, rear drive and choice of manual or automatic transmission shoehorned into a small five-door body shell, the BMW M140 LCI was one of 2017's most unique and highly anticipated offerings for the discerning petrolhead. Better still, BMW wiped five grand from this mid-life updated version of the range-topping small hatchback...

Audi TT Quattro Sport v BMW 228i Sport : Comparison Review

One brief, two different approaches. It's AWD Audi against RWD BMW for the battle of the sports coupes.

Audi A3 Cabriolet v BMW 2 Series Convertible : Comparison review

With the sunlight hours diminishing by the day, the Audi A3 Cabriolet and the BMW 2 Series Convertible may not be at the top of your automotive wish list. Ironically, however, as we’re busy digging out our trackies and Uggs in preparation for circa-20-degree days, our friends in parts of Europe are doing the same – though they’re stripping off snow jackets and boots (in place of our footy shorts and thongs) in anticipation of what they depressingly label ‘summer’...

2021 BMW 2 Series Active Tourer spied

The second-generation BMW 2 Series Active Tourer has been spied during pre-production testing. In terms of design, the 2 Series Active Tourer will again feature a tall body, a steeply angled bonnet, and raked-back front windscreen. In an interesting departure from BMW norms, the Active Tourer will have flagpole-style wing mirrors and looks as though it will also have old-school lift-up door handles...

2020 BMW M240i Coupe gets $74,900 drive-away offer

BMW Australia has announced a sharp drive-away deal for its M240i Coupe, which is now on sale from $74,900 drive-away. Previously listed at $79,100 before on-road costs, the promotional offer represents a $13,000 saving (based on Victorian metro pricing), while also bolstering appeal with more equipment than before...

2019 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe spied

The upcoming BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe has been snapped in testing, ahead of a reveal on July 24. Based on the same UKL platform as the 1 Series and Mini models, the 2 Series Gran Coupe is a style-focused rival to the Mercedes-Benz CLA. Based on the big wheels, big brakes and big air intakes at the front, we'd suggest this tester is an M235i xDrive model...

2015 BMW 2 M235i review

Growing up, cars was always my passion. From a very young age I would spend countless hours looking at car adverts trying to figure out what I would buy if I had the money. The only issue was that I didn't and was therefore always forced to make a "smart" purchase, which usually left me miserable. So you can imagine my excitement when I turned 26 and could finally justify spending $40,000 on a car...

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...

2015 BMW 2 Series Review

The BMW “New Class”, most well known for the venerable 2002 Turbo, was something of a saving grace for a company that was struggling through a post-war financial crisis. It also created a dynamic precedent, one the German marque has tried valiantly to uphold. Either on-track or on-road, the 2002 created a cult following...

2014 BMW 2 Series M235i Review

I have only owned my BMW M235i for a month but I know enough to realise that this machine is amazing. But first I'll start with some of the more boring stuff. The interior is either a highlight or boring depending on what you're looking for. It's classy and has excellent build quality. But for a sports car it lacks some drama...
