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.

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.

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...
