BMW 3 Series Owner Car Reviews

2020 BMW 330i M Sport review

I looked at three cars; the Audi A4, the Mercedes CLA250 and this 330i M-Sport and I found that the BMW was more comfortable inside and the finish was far superior. The car was smooth and the gear changes were also smooth. I found the acceleration was more than what most would need. The technology in this car far exceeds many other cars in this price range...

2003 BMW 330i review

Late 90s/early 2000s European cars have always appealed to me. Considered by some as the golden age for the likes of Audi and BMW, nothing, to me at least, can beat them. So, when the time came for me to purchase a car, it seemed the logical choice. However, before I go any further, a quick disclaimer: I’m a high school student finishing my last year, so I don’t have years of motoring experience under my belt...

2012 BMW 328i review

I bought this car second hand in January 2016. It only had done about 37500km. I had been driving a Colorado LTZ 4x4 for about 15 months and, whilst practical in many respects, it was not great for my back. I was doing about 45000km per year, so comfort was becoming very important...

2019 BMW 330i M-Sport review

The first thing with any car is holding the key. The key hints to you the level of quality and attention to detail to be expected. The BMW key feels solid and looks so good it excites you to press unlock for the first time...

2015 BMW 3 28i review

The BMW 3 Series has been the benchmark sports sedan for three decades, and this sixth generation, code-named F30, certainly lives up to that name. Recent times have been more competitive for the 3 Series, as the Mercedes C-Class and the Audi A4 have taken giant leaps forward. In February 2012, when the F30 was launched in Australia, BMW realised that it had some tough competition...

2004 BMW 3 30ci review

It's been since my high school days that I have had a car-crush on the E46 BMW 3 Series. Whilst I appreciated getting dropped off by Dad in the Transit Van, it seemed like every well-to-do school goer would be dropped off by mum in some kind of E46 variant - probably something M Sport to increase the jealousy! Fast forward to today and I find myself still deprived of 3 Series ownership thanks to having company cars for the past 15 years (I’m in the auto industry)...

2004 BMW 318i Executive review

There's a lot to be said for simplicity. Sometimes it just works. Sometimes you want a more complex affair and that's fine too. Sometimes, however, you want something inherently more complex but with a few generous helpings of simplicity. I like to think that is what my beloved 2004 BMW 318i is all about; simple, efficient, effective. Sensible...

2004 BMW 325Ci review

When you hear the words "Driving Pleasure" you would have to think of BMW. They have done well in making some admirable cars currently, as well as in the past, which is why you would consider one, right? I have owned a few BMWs, ranging from E30, E36, E46, E90 and had thought I was done with them, as I had enjoyed what the brand had to give me within my budgets...

2001 BMW 3 25i review

Everyone has a car story, so here’s mine. I’ll be as truthful as possible because there's a large chance I’ll get into some serious trouble… ahem. It’s 2011 and a lovely autumn day in Melbourne. I’m in my mum’s 1998 red Nissan Pulsar (because my Saab had recently died of clutch abuse) ferrying my wife and what was then my 2 year old daughter back from an extremely boring (for me) trip to the aquarium...

2010 BMW 335i M Sport review

I have always been an E46 fan, having three cars in the family already: 320i, 325ci and a 330i. All great cars and loads of fun to drive. I always dreamed of owning an E46 M3, having test-driven numerous cars. I was scared away by the M-Tax on replacement parts, and so could not commit to buying one...

2010 BMW 320d Lifestyle review

I'd never had to buy a car in a short space of time to suit a unique purpose before, until I bought my 2010 BMW 320d Lifestyle with M Sport Innovations package. I was working in a BMW dealership and had been driving brand-new BMWs every day as company cars. Some weeks I would have the same car, while other weeks I would have up to four different cars...
