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. Yes, there were a lot of cringeworthy moments in the '80s, but there was also some moments to be proud of...

2016 BMW M3 Competition review

For me, BMW's M3 Competition is the perfect blend of looks, performance, handling and practicality, as well as being loaded with all the latest mod-cons to make life comfortable.

Read the full article here. Australia – it's the country where there's always an insect, animal or sea creature trying to kill you. It's also the country that once housed a thriving car industry.

Alfa Romeo Giulia QV v BMW M3 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S comparison

For a nation renowned for its love of all things sport, it should come as no surprise this admiration and aspiration extends to what we drive. We are inside the top-10 world sales market list for Lamborghini, Porsche is seeing continuing sales growth and both Mercedes-AMG and BMW M Division speak highly of the Australian market, where we have the highest performance-version to regular-model ratio in the world...

BMW M4 GTS v M3 CSL: The latest and greatest at the 2017 Bathurst 12 Hour

In and of itself, this year's 2017 Bathurst 12 Hour truly was an epic affair – just read Rob Margeit's race-day recap or Tom Fraser's BMW M6 GT3 behind the scenes special. The folks at BMW Australia invited CarAdvice along to the monster Bathurst 12 Hour race weekend held at the iconic Mount Panorama Circuit, and they also surprised by giving us limited access to two very special vehicles: the 2017 BMW M4 GTS and the 2003 BMW M3 CSL...

Kia Stinger stability control: I was wrong

Well, it turns out I was wrong. When we shot our Kia Stinger 330Si v Holden Commodore SS-V Redline comparison at the end of last year, I claimed that stability control can't be switched off completely in the Kia Stinger. These comments made it all the way to Albert Biermann's office. He's the bloke that was poached by Kia to head the Hyundai/Kia performance division...

Launch control or no launch control: Trying to hit manufacturer claims

I'm sure you all have mates like mine: they love bragging about the acceleration times listed on their brochures. But, in the real world, these times are often only achievable through a sometimes tricky-to-initiate launch control system...

1994 BMW M3 review

My interest in motorsport came at a young age, with fond memories of watching the Group A touring car championship in the early 1990s. The cars were so exciting to watch, and the appeal to me was the diverse range of manufactures that entered the championship...

2009 BMW M3 Review

It isn't often that one gets the chance to talk about the cars that have made an impression on one's life... I have a four-door E90 BMW M3. It takes my breath away every time I drive it. The motor is a masterpiece and is coupled to the DCT gearbox that marries the usability and comfort of a full auto with the hard edged racing-style performance of an affordable supercar...

2012 BMW M3 PURE EDITION II Review

My M3 coupe is a Jan 2012 registered car. Finished in Mineral White, it includes the Competition package. The vehicle is amazing. Having previously owned a 335i, I can dispel the myth that the M3 is just an upgraded 335i. It is a totally different car altogether. Around town the car performs brilliantly. The ride is firm yet comfortable...
