The last time we drove the BMW i3, it was a little over 3 years ago. Back then, BMW’s electric city runabout revolution looked and drove like a Shuttlecraft straight out of Star Trek (albeit, one with wheels). In the few short years that have gone by, we’ve also seen electrical vehicles (EVs) explode (sorry) […]Read more "Amped Up: Driving the 2017 BMW i3 Range Extender"
Pleasant perception changing surprises don’t come by very often when you are handed the test keys to almost every new BMW that rolls off the showroom floor, but I think we’ve just experienced one of these moments after driving the BMW F45 2-series Active Tourer 225xe iPerformance (phew). Utilising a 134bhp 1.5 inline 3 petrol […]Read more "2ND Time’s the charm: Driving the BMW F45 225xe Active Tourer"

If anything, i think it speaks volumes of BMW’s designers for […]Read more "Executive Express: Driving the BMW G30 540i"
When a friend suggested a quick breakfast run over the weekend, i thought it would have been the perfect excuse to exercise the Transaxle’s legs. But of course the car had other plans… No, that’s not oil. That’s fuel. Don’t worry, it has since been fixed (after relieving itself of about a quarter tank of […]Read more "Breakfast run"
It’s been a long time since we last held a Cars & Kopi meet! Admittedly, it was probably because i was just too caught up with trying to get Project 944 back on the road and when issue after issue kept cropping up with the 80s Stuttgart machine, i was just too drained on my […]Read more "Cars & Kopi – Summer 2017"
