2020 BMW 1 M135i xDrive review

Probably the most hated 1 Series ever made but I could beg the differ. I think it's better. The new 1 Series is a step ahead of its predecessor in some areas; yes it's lost the beautiful B58 and has switched to a transverse layout, but it gains an AWD system too. This won't just be a comparison to the old one but also a review of the car for what it is - a well-handling and quick hatch...

2001 BMW 330Ci review

I've owned my 330Ci for just over a year now. My previous car history has been a Subaru Liberty (4th Gen 3.0), a BMW 135i ('09 E82), and a Mazda MX-5 ('99 NB8A), with each being manual. The MX-5 lasted me four years but needed some more space, and considering I'd almost gotten an E46 for my first car, I was bound to inevitably come full circle and get one...

2018 BMW M140i review

Ah, finally, cruising in the BMW M140i! A sporty, practical, 5-door, 5-seat, 250kW, 500Nm beast! Before we get to the Beemer, let me tell you how I came to choosing it. So I was trapped in the YouTube black hole for many months; Golf R, second hand M2, etc etc. I drove the Golf R and was very impressed with it...

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...
