2019 BMW M2 Competition review: Australian launch

The new M2 Competition is a better car than its M2 predecessor, though not through any one component, including the new engine. Rather, it’s the sum of each and every component added and tweak made to the chassis itself that has produced a more precise, if not quicker, M-Car than that which it replaces. In the end, it's still the best M-Car under $150K that BMW builds...

Audi RS3 v BMW M2 v Mercedes-AMG A45 Comparison: Track Test

What’s the fastest performance car you can buy for under $100,000? That’s the question we keep getting asked over and over again. The number of contenders is rather varied and the argument remains that you can certainly buy a $50,000 car and spend another $50k to make it supercar fast, but ultimately, there are only three cars that have the credibility to make it to this test...

2019 BMW M2 Competition review

What even is an M2 Competition? Well, I’m glad you asked. The M2 already has a special place in every motorists’ heart, and when it was announced that the M2 would have a Competition model, every petrolhead for obvious reasons got very excited. For those who don’t know, the Competition badge has always been a way for BMW to fix and fine-tune the mistakes of the launch car, but this year it was different, very different...
