    Price:  £33,660

    16 September 2008 by Glen Waddington

    If you’ve already read what we’ve written about the revised 330d, you’ll know about the changes BMW has wrought on the 3-series. It looks a bit sharper, has a bit more presence, some new tech –...

    02 September 2008 by Glen Waddington

  • BMW M3 Convertible M-DCT (2008) driven review

    Price:  £54,655

    01 May 2008 by Chris Chilton

    The BMW M3 Convertible is not a Footballers’ Wives kind of car. The convertible M3 might be heavier and bendier than the coupe but, along with that glorious V8, this  car also hasa...

    22 April 2008 by Ben Barry

    The BMW M3 saloon has two more doors, weighs 25kg extra, features blander taillights and, at £49,415, costs £1415 less than its E92 coupe sibling. Anyone with an internet connection can work that out.

  • BMW 330d M-Sport (2007) review

    Price:  £33,095

    06 November 2007 by Steve Prentice

    Admit it, it’s an oil-burner in a sports jacket … why fool yourself? Who said diesels can’t be nippy? You’ve not noticed a diesel’s won Le Mans? This 330d is an unashamedly rapid thing. With 231bhp...

  • BMW M3 (2007) review

    Price:  £50,625

    12 July 2007 by Ben Barry

    You’ve driven the new BMW M3 then? Oh yes. The E92 model is the fourth generation of the M3, a car that first arrived in 1986. Back then it had a four-cylinder engine with around 200bhp. The new car...

    07 July 2007 by Chris Chilton

    M3 meets its nemesis So you’ve already devoured CAR’s first drive verdict on the new BMW M3 and its V8 engine and watched the video of us punishing it at the Ascari race resort, but how does it stack...

    06 July 2007 by Chris Chilton

    The ultimate BMW M3 test: E30 Sport Evo v E36 Evo v E46 CSL M3. No confusion, just instant comprehension. The badge, the name, is universally understood. One letter and one number that combined are as...

  • BMW 335i (2007) Convertible review

    Price:  £38,350

    24 January 2007 by Chris Chilton

    That can’t be a coupe-cabrio! Where’s the huge backside, the stupid wedgy profile and enormously overlong windscreen? It certainly is a CC - BMW’s first ever in fact – although you’re right, it...

  • BMW 335d Coupe (2006) review

    Price:  £33,610

    19 October 2006 by Ben Oliver

    286bhp, 427lb ft and 1570kgs – quite fast, presumably? Oh yes. BMW points out that the new 335d is the most powerful diesel engine it has sold in the UK and the most powerful six-pot diesel in the...

  • BMW 335i Coupe (2006) review

    Price:  £31,550

    25 July 2006 by Chris Chilton

    A new engine for the ubiquitous 3-series? A new body too. This is the coupe version of the 3-series saloon that hit showrooms in 2005. But BMW wanted to create a big bang for the launch of the...
