BMW Owner Car Reviews

2008 BMW M3 review

My story begun when I was a young. I have always been into performance cars and as I grew up becoming more financially capable, I set out to save enough money to find my dream car. Being at the age of 20, my main criteria for the car were cheap and fast, not a hatch, manual trans and preferably a coupe...

2019 BMW X4 M40i review

It's an SUV that isn't boring. It's a machine that's versatile. Want to overtake that Camry driver doing 20 'kays under in a 100 zone? Want an SUV that's practical and fast? Want an SUV that's built with passion and excitement? Well the M40i is the car you need. It's not your average run-of-the-mill SUV; it's a beast that will pop and burble every time you start it up, and it will scream whenever you overtake someone...

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...

2018 BMW X3 xDrive30d M Sport review

I have driven my X3 30D for over two years and 35000km now and I have been very happy with the ownership experience. I bought this model due to the quality, space of the cabin, and value for money considering the features and superb driving traits. The power and economy of the 6-cylinder, 3.0-litre, 195kW/620Nm diesel is simply outstanding...

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...

2018 BMW M3 review... sorta...

EDITOR'S NOTE: We'd planned to skip this one, but given it's April 1 today... why not? I’ll always remember this BMW Motorsport as my first European car. My first car was a Little Tikes Cozy Coup that Mummy and Daddy bought me when I was still crawling but I was just so embarrassed driving it through the inner suburbs with its lack of lights, its novelty character face and wide turning circle...

2013 BMW M3 review

It's easy to go into a drive in an M3 and get suckered into the hype-train. After all, I'm pretty sure if you look in the dictionary next to "best sports saloon" it won't be long before you stumble across a photo of the famous kidney-grilles (or a questionable load of sports-themed American bars)...

2013 BMW 5 35i review

My family and I have owned this 5 Series since 2016 and it has been garaged everyday, and washed at least once every two weeks. This car has been daily driven, and after four years I can say this has probably been the best car we have owned. The inline 6-cylinder twin-scroll turbo M Sport BMW has adjustable suspension which affords different driving dynamics...

2001 BMW 530i Executive review

This is undoubtedly one of the best BMWs ever made. This car converted me from Honda to BMW after just a few weeks of driving. Yes, I really love driving this car and the person who sold me this car really regrets selling it. He had upgraded to a later model BMW, but keeps informing me that his current BMW isn't as good as the one he sold me...

2014 BMW X5 xDrive35i review

My wife and I bought this car to replace a diesel powered Range Rover product that we had no end of issues with. When its warranty expired we decided that we had to get rid of it. The BMW X5 had been a vehicle that we had desired for some time but we couldn’t afford a new one, but with some extensive research we managed to locate a low kilometre, one-owner vehicle for a reasonable and affordable price, and so a Sophisto Grey xDrive 35i joined our garage...

2010 BMW 118d review

I walked into a BMW dealer nearly 9 years ago, desiring a compact and economical car with that little bit more luxury and pizazz than the Golf I had been checking out. I was drawn into the showroom by a BMW advert - $42888 drive away for a 118d manual diesel with leather. I was told there were no manuals available...
