The one problem with the G20 BMW 3 Series that BMW needs to fix

There is no doubt that about the BMW’s superior dynamics, which is far ahead of the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and the Audi A4. We absolutely love the way it drives and sounds, even in the four-cylinder 330i. In terms of evolution of character, the G20 BMW 3 Series is closer to the more driver-focused E90 3 Series than the previous F30 model, which closer to the comfort-biased E46 than the sharper handling E90. The G20 BMW 3 Series is more spacious than the E90, without losing any of the excellent dr

Evolution of the BMW 3 series in 7 generations – still the ultimate sedan?

Hailing from Munich is the famous German automaker, BMW. The brand has been around since 1916 and its badge proudly displays the colours of the Bavarian flag. If there is one BMW model that well-represents the brand, it has to be the BMW 3 series. The model is compact, accessible, and has an iconic status.

Evolution of the BMW M3 – M Power or AMG?

Racing homologation cars are the best thing that ever happened to car enthusiasts. Manufacturers make them because they are required to. They are basically just stripped-out and rambunctious versions of otherwise practical cars. One happy result of such requirements is the BMW M3 derived from the 3-series. The M3 name has been around for about 35 years. In appreciation of the poster-child of the M badge, let’s look back at the M3s that we have been blessed with over the years. BMW 2002 turbo (th

F30 BMW 3 Series: Still the best 3, tips to buy good used ones for RM 100k

I once had dinner with Ryo Yanagisawa, Mazda’s young design maestro, whose most recent work is the fabulous looking Mazda CX-30 and before that, the Mazda 2 and Mazda BT-50. I asked what he thinks is the best looking non-Mazda car on sale today (then), exotic cars aside. Without skipping a beat, he candidly answered the F30 BMW 3 Series.

Review: 2020 (G20) BMW 320i Sport – Drives superbly, but at what cost?

In a word association game, BMW would most likely be associated with 3 Series. It is quintessentially BMW. For many, the BMW 3 Series represents an entry to the brand or even to what we commonly refer as "Continental cars", such as BMW 320i. As BMW then, it is imperative to get the 3 Series recipe right. And in the aspect of driving, BMW has nailed it. But not without its downsides, and we shall get into those in a bit. BMW 3 Series There are two variants of the seventh-generation (G20) BMW 3 Se

Toyota Camry vs Mercedes-Benz C200 vs BMW 320i Sport - sedan Jepun lagi baik dari Jerman?!

Sedan segmen D di Malaysia bukan lagi kereta yang dikhaskan untuk golongan ‘uncle’ kerana segmen ini telah diberi nafas baru, cenderung ke gaya sebuah sports sedan.

The 2021 Lexus IS 500 is a massive middle-finger to the Mercedes C-Class

Downsizing. It is a dirty word to many car enthusiasts, but apparently unavoidable. Even purveyors of large engines, Mercedes-AMG, recently announced that its venerable 4.0-litre, twin turbo V8 engines will be replaced with hybrid 4-cylinder ones. Quite a shock to the system, yes. If you, like me, lived through the late 1980s and entire 1990s, you'd know that premium and performance cars of that era mostly came with large-capacity engines. 2.0-litre engines? That was the minimum entry ticket bac
