2017 BMW M3 30 Jahre: A step back in time

Where were you in 1987? For me, I was busy being born. But if you were old enough to remember, you more than likely would’ve been sporting the coolest mullet in town or wearing brightly coloured leg warmers while dancing to Belinda Carlisle’s Heaven is a Place on Earth.

2009 BMW M3 review

Being a family man and soccer dad, I fall into the same category as many other parents who constantly run around every weekend taxiing the kids to and from their extra curricular sporting and dancing activities. With this comes a requirement for at least four doors and a generous interior with cargo space, which is why your typical soccer field car park is full of SUVs and 4WDs...

2010 BMW M3 review

What’s your car this time? It’s a 2010 BMW E92 M3; Alpine White with a CF roof and M-DCT (i.e. dual clutch transmission) Didn’t you have one of these before? Yes. In 2017 I traded my old 2009 E92 M3 in for a BMW i8.
