3 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

BMW M3 Review – featuring E92

4 weeks agoVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

Before you read any deeper into this BMW M3 review, let me declare some bias. I’m more of an M3 person than an M4 one. It’s not just about the four-door practicality, as most M3 generations sold in Australia have been coupes; or the fact the M3 saves you $10K over the M4; it’s also [...]

last monthVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

BMW i3 a niche car, but sufficient to make an impact on paltry EV sales in Australia

last monthVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

The BMW i3 electric hatchback is not expected to sell in any great numbers early on, but it should still be enough to help out Australia’s paltry EV sales in 2015. Despite commanding a sizeable attention-share, sales of vehicles in the VFACTS electric car category have in fact gone backwards in 2014.  Only 205 such [...]

Luxury Sedan Comparison Final Round : Mercedes-Benz C-Class v BMW 3 Series v Volvo S60

4 months agoVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class was Australia’s favourite luxury car in 2013. Perhaps a more impressive fact, however, is that Stuttgart’s mid-sized model outsold every mainstream medium car except the Camry and Mazda 6. It’s fair, then, to call this a significant volume car – as is its decades-old arch enemy, the BMW 3 Series, which matched [...]

4 months agoVehicles / Cars : Car Advice

  Spending $100,000 on an SUV is becoming an increasingly common occurrence in Australia, but never before has there been so much choice, particularly if the ‘S’ in SUV means anything to you. Over the years the term SUV has been poorly diluted. Most modern ‘soft-roaders’ are not only allergic to dirt, but have as [...]
