2019 BMW M5 Review

The M5 is one of the most insane cars sold in America and yet at the same time eminently practical. With launch control you can run 0-60 times that would make Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and McLarens jealous, but it seats people in comfort and has enough room in the back for rear facing child seats and […]

2019 BMW X3 M40i Review

BMW helped start the compact luxury crossover segment with their very first X3 but until now BMW has resisted making performance versions for some reason. The all-new third generation CUV however is different with the addition of the M40i trim, the first time the X3 has received the legendary letter M. As part of BMW’s […]

2018 BMW 740e Review

To meet emissions targets in California and around the world BMW has been aggressively rolling out plug-in hybrid versions of their popular products and the latest to get the PHEV treatment is their flagship 7-Series sedan. The 740e combines a 2.0L turbo engine with an electric motor to deliver identical acceleration to their tried-and-true 3.0L […]

2018 / 2019 BMW X2 Review

BMW’s latest CUV is the result of a formula we’ve seen before: take a practical crossover (the X1) and re-work it to be heavier on style and lighter on practicality while simultaneously enlarging its price tag. This math is what brought us the X6 and X4, but unlike those crossovers which I’m not the biggest […]

2019 BMW MX6M Review

I admit that I am a fan of the way the X6 looks and the way the X6M drives, but I have troubles getting behind the loss of passenger room and practicality vs the BMW X5. It’s made even more vexing by the fact that comparably equipped the X6 isn’t any faster and doesn’t really […]

2018 BMW X3 Review

BMW’s third generation is likely going to be BMW’s best selling vehicle in America by sometime next year. It was therefore more important than ever that the X3 be one of the best options in the segment that BMW helped invent back in 1999. To that end we get an all-new luxury crossover with more […]

2018 BMW 530e Review

For 2018 the 5-Series gets two base models, a 530i and a plug-in-hybrid 530e. With essentially identical price tags and nearly identical performance, which should you buy? Let’s find out. 0-30: 2.5 Seconds 0-60: 6 Seconds 1/4 Mile: 14.7 Sec @ 94 MPH 60-0 Braking: 124 Feet

2018 BMW M550i xDrive First Drive Review

BMW has long had an aversion to putting all-wheel-drive on an M-car, and that’s exactly why they crafted the almost-M M550i. The new M550i xDrive is part of BMW’s new M-Performance line, not to be confused with M-Sport or M. Confused yet? Allow me to explain. M-Sport is looks better handles better, M-Performance is looks […]

2017 BMW i3 Range Extender Review

Some call it a hybrid, some call it an EV. Some have called it a REx, a BEVx, a landmark vehicle in EV production, and others simply call it ugly. Whatever you want to call the i3 it is one of BMW’s most important new cars in California for a variety of reasons. It’s also […]

2016 BMW 340i and 3-Series Review

For 2016 BMW continues their tradition of making incremental rather than revolutionary changes to their bread and butter sedan. The 2016 340 is a little sharper, a little more powerful and a little more polished than the 2015 335i.
