EV Squared – 2024 BMW iX1 xDrive30 review

2024 BMW iX1 review NZ

In maths, the square root of a number is the number that, when multiplied by itself, gives the original number. Conversely, when a number is squared, it is multiplied by itself, however, in the automotive world, when an EV is squared, you get a cute, smart and efficient SAV called the BMW iX1. The iX1 […]

Xtra-large and Xtravagant – BMW X7 M60i xDrive full review

BMW X7 M60i xDrive review NZ

Big, bold and beasty, are just a few of the words that can sum up the new, ‘refreshed’ X7, but it’s somehow elegant too. BMW’s mammoth 7-seater has a new face and increased technology taking its extravagance to the Xtreme. In what is rapidly becoming an over-congested world,     space     is becoming […]

Guilt-free decadence – BMW i7 xDrive60 review

BMW i7 xDrive60 review NZ

The BMW 7-Series has essentially been the German premium automaker’s benchmark luxury nameplate from the moment it first rolled off the production line in ‘77. It’s often been the model that showcases the latest in technology and innovation, is the ultimate in comfort and above all, simply oozes upmarket desirability. So how do you improve […]

Brutal but kind – BMW i4 M50 review

BMW i4 M50 review NZ

Savage and sustainable are words barely ever seen in the same sentence, yet they perfectly describe BMW’s latest addition to their M-Sport range. For not only does the i4 M50 provide stomach churning acceleration, but it’s also 100% battery powered – is this the new M3/M4? BMW NZ let us find out more. The i4 […]

Charismatic Coupe – BMW M240i Coupe review

2022 BMW M240i Coupe review NZ

I have to say, when the offer of the new BMW M240i Coupe came into my inbox, my pulse started racing, after all, I still had fond (albeit violent) memories of being behind the wheel of the previous generation BMW M2 and the ‘softer’ M235 4-door Gran Coupe bouncing around my head – they’re hard […]

The BMW M3 E92 is Still Terrific in Every Way

The old saying “they don’t make em like they used to” could perfectly sum up the BMW M3 E92. BMW had their work cut out to follow up the immensely popular E46, so the E92 had to be something pretty special, and it was. Produced from 2007 to 2013, the E92 signaled the arrival of […]

EV RemiX: 2022 BMW iX xDrive40 Review

The BMW iX is BMW’s first attempt at a purpose built all electric SUV. It also promises a great deal, with BMW even going so far as to say “the future is here.” Is it a case of “don’t believe the hype?” Let’s see. The iX family consists of my test car, the base xDrive […]

Shy yet Monolithic – BMW iX xDrive 40 review

BMW iX 40 xDrive review NZ

While picking up the iX3 from BMW’s lair in the UK last year, I stumbled upon their new iX (alright it was parked in the car park) and was hooked. They are calling it their new ‘technology flagship’ and a ‘pioneer of a new era’ which is all well and good, but whatever the marketers […]

Fancy FEV – 2022 BMW 330e PHEV review

BMW 330e PHEV review NZ

What do you get if you cross the ‘ultimate driving machine’s’ 3-series and an electrical power outlet? Well BMW New Zealand thought we should find out and gave us the keys to their new 330e PHEV sedan. One of the benefits of having my formative years in the 70s/80s was the fact of being introduced […]

The BMW iX3 is magic

BMW iX3 Review NZ

Set in the heart of Wiltshire England lies a little town called Swindon. It’s not overly famous for much, Diana Dors was born there, so too XTC (I hail from there as well), however, as many Brits will tell you ‘Swindon, that place with the Magic Roundabout.’ And it was there that my test of […]
