BMW 2-Series Coupe (14 - present)

It’s the follow-up to the 1-Series, much like the 3 Series coupe being supplanted by the 4 Series. Although this is more than just a mere renaming. The 2 Series Coupe is a whole new car and brings its own charm and charisma to the table. You only have to glance at it to recognise that. It offers more in terms of performance, practicality, ... more

BMW 3-Series (98 - 05)

Irish buyers love the BMW 3-Series. It is easily one of the best all-round cars you’re likely to drive. It remains one of the best sellers. The classic, understated BMW styling appeals to drivers: some 16 years after its release, it’s still in demand. It has one of the best looking interiors in its class. The seats are comfortable, the ... more

BMW 3-Series Coupe (99 - 06)

The 3-Series still has the sort of style and drive that generate such demand for BMWs. The understated looks, even some 15 years after its launch, have managed to stand the test of time and not seem outdated. The same could be said for the inside. The cabin is really pleasant and there’s a good level of practicality. It can carry up to four; ... more

BMW 3-Series (05 - 11)

This is an excellent combination of looks, handling, power and poise. It has the best driving dynamics in its class. It’s really practical, with enough room for up to four adults and a boot capable of storing some large items. The dashboard and the rest of the cabin are nicely designed; everything looks and feels quality. There’s ... more

BMW 3-Series Touring (12 - present)

This has all of the traits of the 3-Series saloon, but with the Touring you’re getting more bang for your buck. It’s basically the same car except for the larger cargo area and tailgate, which means a lot more practicality. The seating is room and there is plenty of storage space in the boot. The cabin is comfortable and there’s ... more

BMW 3-Series (12- 15)

As a compact executive saloon car, this is probably BMW’s finest work to date. They’ve made an art of building good looking cars with excellent performance. The cabin is comfortable and practical. There’s lots of space; it can seat four with ample leg/head room. It also comes with a good-sized boot. The cabin is one of the best ... more

BMW 3-Series Gran Turismo (13 - present)

The whole idea of the 3 Series GT was to combine sportiness and performance with practicality and refinement. It’s safe to say that BMW have achieved that goal. The odd, bulbous shape may not get some people as excited as others, but there’s no denying it’s a good looking car. And of course, the coveted badge itself can be enough ... more

BMW 3-Series (16 - present)

The 3-Series is one of those cars that has always embodied 'success' in Ireland. The prestigious badge combined with its classic, no-nonsense good looks make it a timeless classic, and its rear-wheel power makes it the driver's car of choice in the competitive executive saloon segment. This 2016 facelift, while subtle, was timed well and necessary ... more

BMW 4-Series Coupe (13 - present)

Replacing the outgoing 3 Series Coupe, the 4 Series carries on all of its traditional strengths and then some. Competing with the Audi A5, BMW got it spot on with their mixture of sportiness, style, elegance and refinement. It matches its competitors blow for blow. Because of this, BMW say it’s no longer just a slightly less practical, more ... more

BMW 4-Series M4 (14 - present)

The most impressive thing about the BMW M4 is that it is an excellent sports car, despite technically not being a sports car at all. Following on from some really great M3 sports cars, the M4 was always going to have a lot to live up to, and given the price and pedigree of this car, there’s a lot expected of it in the coming years.  And ... more
