Until this year we didn’t know the BMW M4. To help us get to know its new icon a little better BMW has released this introductory video. It’s a pretty cool clip and BMW is to be applauded for embracing its history and its loyal owners. Those of you playing at home may also remember […]

VIDEO: BMW X4 v Porsche Macan

If you can stomach the planet’s insatiable desire for SUVs then you’ll be primed for this review from Autocar. It’s the BMW X4 up against the Porsche Macan. Two SUVs likely to polarise opinions on numerous levels, but two SUVs that are likely to be among the best in their class. Specifically, Autocar has compared […]

BMW’s muscular M2 spied on the prowl

// Posted in BMW

We’re always happy to follow the gestation of a new M product and here’s one of the latest snaps of a BMW M2 prototype in testing. Obviously all that crazy camouflage makes it hard to see, but if you plant your eyes just behind the front wheel arch you’ll see how much the front guard […]

BMW M4: M Performance exhaust preview

As good as BMW is at extracting performance from the engines it makes it is better at extracting money from its customers. So when you make yourself a new hero car, aka the F82 M4, it doesn’t make economic sense to put the best exhaust you have in your parts bin on the car at […]

VIDEO: BMW M4 v Porsche 911 Carrera

Evo magazine has taken to the picturesque Anglesey Circuit with a brand new BMW M4 and pitched it against a Porsche 911 Carrera. The M4 (née M3) v 911 debate is one that’s been around for years now. Two cars that compete against each other in the minds of revheads even though they don’t really […]

Onboard through Eau Rouge, woo hoo!

Alexander Sims spent last weekend helping the Ecurie Ecosse BMW Z4 GT3 finish second in class at the 24 Hours of Spa. We were lucky enough to join him onboard during the race for a one question interview. We asked: “So Alexander, what’s it like to fly through Eau Rouge in a world class GT3 […]

Restyled BMW 1 Series on sale early next year

// Posted in BMW

Restyled front noses seem to be a thing right now with new sightings of the facelifted BMW 1 Series out on German roads. The ugly eyes of the M135i are perhaps its greatest weakness and it’s expected BMW will pretty much lift the more attractive 2 Series front-end and replicate it on the 1er. It’s […]

You can be my wingman any time

// Posted in BMW, Video

Word has come our way confirming the first batch of Australian-delivered BMW M3s and M4s have just arrived by boat. If you’re one of those lucky few with your name on one of those cars we hope the wait until delivery day is not too painful. We also hope your car’s journey was a little […]

Now that the BMW i8 is on sale in Australia this video from the car’s first “dynamic” UK appearance at the Goodwood Festival of Speed takes on new meaning. So what is this three-cylinder jobbie with electric sparkles really like? Watch this video to find out. It won’t give you a definitive answer, but it’s […]

BMW i8 touring Australia

A couple of weeks ago BMW Australia announced pricing for the very cool looking and very green i8 hybrid sportscar. It’s three hundred grand if you’re wondering. To promote the Australian sales launch the BMWi “supercar” is touring across the six dealerships in six states who have been nominated as official selling dealers. Luckily for […]

BMW M2 spied making friends with the M3

// Posted in BMW

The latest batch of BMW M2 spy pics have hit the interwebs and as you can see they brought a new M3 along for the ride. Despite the use of BMW’s noted camouflage vinyl it’s expected the M2 will get a more aggressive body kit than what we are seeing here, which is basically M235i […]

Watch the BMW M2 in action

// Posted in BMW, Video

BMW has been testing the new M2 for a while now. But this is one of the first times it’s been caught on video. Alas, the sound coming from the exhaust is not as fruity as one might like. Although, it doesn’t seem like the 3.0 litre straight six turbo in the test mule was […]

Would you like to see a four-cylinder M3?

// Posted in BMW

At the recent press launch of the new M3/M4 it emerged that the next-generation models could be powered by a four-cylinder engine. The original E30 M3 was fitted with a 2.3 litre four-pot, of course, filled with as much character as it was power, so this wouldn’t be anything new. But since then we’ve seen […]
