2018 BMW 230i LCI review

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.

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...

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.
