Burnin' rubber: Track testing Bridgestone's all-new Potenza S007A at Phillip Island

Enthusiasts may obsess over them, but for the average motorist the black rubber rings under each corner of their car probably don’t occupy much thought until it comes time to replace them, and then it’s just another out-of-pocket inconvenience. Bridgestone is aware of this...

2018 BMW M4 CS review

On the track, the BMW M4 CS is in its element, but how does it stack up as a daily?

2018 BMW M4 CS review: Track test

It's been a long time coming, but there's a new BMW M4 that sits above the M4 Competition and its called the M4 CS. It's quicker, yes, but not by much.

2018 BMW M3 and M4 Pure review

Not only has BMW's M division sharpened the chassis on its latest BMW M3 and BMW M4, it's also sharpened the price tag and added even more kit for its new Pure editions...

2017 BMW M4 CS review

See the full article here. The 2017 BMW M4 CS is the inbetweener enthusiasts have been waiting for - a cool look, more power and less weight. The biggest issue will be getting your hands on one.

2016 BMW M4 Competition v Mercedes-AMG C63 S Track Test

Read the full article here. The battle of BMW’s M division against Mercedes-AMG has been raging on for decades. The Bavarians have never gone for a power war with the folks from Affalterbach, preferring instead to focus on a power to weight ratio formula that sees them maintain the purists status amongst the hooligan nature of old AMGs...

2017 BMW M4 GTS review

This is one of just 700 2017 BMW M4 GTS in the world – the first of just 25 coming to Australia. The car is so special, it has to go through a very specific 2000km running-in program and service, before we’re even allowed to touch it. So before we get behind the wheel, we have to wait for the BMW technicians to finish...

2016 BMW M4 Competition Review

The Competition Pack throws a bunch of upgrades at the 2016 BMW M4 Coupe – but is it what the M4 should have been from the start?

BMW M4 Comparisons

2018 Audi RS5 v BMW M4 Competition comparison

You could call a comparison between the 2018 Audi RS5 and 2018 BMW M4 Competition a battle of ethos. A battle, if you will, of two different ways of solving the same problem. Which problem? Delivering a blindingly fast, somewhat affordable track weapon that needs to be used every day. It’s not an easy conundrum to solve either...

2018 BMW M4 Pure v M4 CS comparison

If there’s validation in twin-testing the 2017 BMW M4 Pure and the 2017 M4 CS – the most affordable and priciest variants of the Em-Four stable right now – I need to unearth it quick smart. Not merely in an attempt at relevant buying advice for you, dear reader, but also to justify why I needed to burn the fuel and rubber of two of BMW’s finest performers across some of Australia’s finest driving roads for a couple of days to those who dwell up on high in the CarAdvice ivory tower...

2016 BMW M3, M4, M4 Convertible recalled

BMW has recalled a handful of 2016 M3 and M4 models, over concerns about a three-hole flange within the car's driveshaft. According to the company, the car's carbon-fibre driveshaft contains a three-hole flange and a pushing piece which isn't produced with 'sufficient long-term durability'. That means the 'pushing piece' could be pulled out of the driveshaft...

BMW Australia initiates second phase of Takata recall - UPDATE

BMW Australia has announced it will be commencing the next phase of its Takata airbag recall work this month, detailing a staggered repair schedule over the coming year. UPDATE, 6/12/18: The contents of the table originally provided were inaccurate. We have updated the initiation schedule below...

Autonomy will kill BMW M manuals

The manual gearbox might be living on a serious time overdraft in many parts of the world, but BMW’s M Division has no plans to stop offering it any time soon. When we spoke to boss Frank Van Meel at the launch of the M2 and M5 Competition earlier this week, he said we can expect to still have the option of a stick shift, even as the company moves to its new, modular fifth-generation architecture...

BMW M will electrify everything, division boss says

BMW has recently said it thinks up to 40 per cent of the cars it produces by 2025 may be powered by some form of pure electric or hybrid powertrain, and now we have confirmation that M Division is set to get in on the act. "For sure, all M vehicles will be electrified by the end of the next decade," Frank Van Meel, M's boss, told Australian journalists at the launch of the updated BMW M2 and new M5 Competition in Spain...

2014 BMW M4 review

It’s been over three years since I took delivery of my 2014 BMW F82 M4 with the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT), and I have covered around 16,000km. The M4 is a relatively large two-door coupe that has two usable rear seats and a generous boot, making it a practical daily driver. Every time it has been parked for a few hours, the M4 will greet you with a loud cold-start procedure...

2016 BMW M4 Competition review

For most of my adult life, I have wanted a BMW M3 (back then it only came in coupe form). Since the M4 convertible came out, it has been on the top of my bucket list. With an all-consuming compulsion induced by an early onset of midlife crisis (and an augmenting mortgage), I ordered an ice white M4 Competition convertible with lava red leather (aka Sakhir Orange) in June 2016...
