Plug-in hybrids kick ass for environmental reasons, but unless it’s an $850,000 Porsche 918 Spyder, they tend to suck for people who actually love driving. And as of late most of them look like reject four-wheel Gundams—and somehow not in a good way. The 2017 BMW 330e is here to slap some sense into hybrid cars.
Brothers Daniel and Jason Knust of Wollongong, Australia, wanted to show their mom Carol how much they appreciate her by getting her the car she’s always wanted: a BMW 3 Series. So, they saved up for ten years to buy her one for Christmas, per Fox News. Her completely incredulous reaction is just the best.
Like Invisible Touch, the M3, a vehicle made by the Bavarian Motor Works company of West Germany, turns 30 this year. I would argue that it has aged better than that album, and this massive photo gallery of M3s—including weird-ass one-offs—is proof of that.
BMW has launched a new ad campaign for its 3-Series plug-in hybrid, the 330e, and it’s directly targeting buyers who have either already ordered a Tesla Model 3, or may be interested. The problem is that the campaign is laughably ironic.
You’d have to be a particular kind of moron to not be able to baby with a sedan the size of a BMW 3 Series. Or maybe a Duggar. But can you consciously buy one with a six-speed manual and the track handling package if you’ve got a baby on board? Yes. Hell yes. Don’t buy any other BMW 3 Series.
Everyone calls the upcoming Tesla Model 3 a 3 Series fighter, but BMW is prepared to fight the Model 3 too—with hybrid power and a lot of efficiency. Meet the hybrid 330e iPerformance. Is it the green-ish sport sedan you need?
When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. When life gives you the used husks of expired lemons, it’s time to get creative. On this edition of Build Of The Week, we delve into the mind of a person that sees a $250 BMW E30 shell on Craigslist and thinks “this will be fun.” Let’s all be this guy.
Come at the king, you best not miss. The BMW 3 Series has been the Omar of the sports sedan game for three decades now, and while its competition is tougher and better than ever, it’s still the reigning champion. What do you need to know before you buy a 3 Series? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in…
America’s auto industry posted marginal losses in the month of August, while the daily sales rate and seasonally adjusted annualized rate soared. In August 2014, U.S. auto sales figures actually included sales from September’s high-volume Labour Day weekend.
In 36 hours, this BMW E36 went from a $200 junkyard special to a fully functional drift car, going sideways on track. Yes it has a bullet hole from a drive by shooting. Here’s how it all happened.
BMW Hungary gave me a brown diesel wagon so I can go the Nürburgring 24 without dying in my Autobianchi on the Autobahn. A week later, I gave back the car with an additional 1,636 miles on the clock, and a heavy heart.
Happy 40th birthday, BMW 3 series. In lieu of cake, we’re going to celebrate the best production models in your history.
The BMW 3 Series facelift is due out in 2015, and although no spectacular changes in design are to be expected, technically the facelifted high-seller has changed a lot.
The 1984-1991 BMW 3-Series has become an auto-cultural flashpoint. From the rise in interest in (and value of) the E30 M3, to the hoards of E30s descending like boxy locusts on every 24 Hours of LeMons event, to Travis's recent racetrack dalliance in a new 3-Series spec series. If ever a car begged for a documentary,…
The last time I drove the F30 BMW 3-Series, it was the top dog 335i with the sport package. I didn't love it and thought that BMW might have lost some of that sport sedan special sauce. But the baby 320i is a different story, and it's superb.

Before landing a gig at Top Gear, Richard Hammond worked for Motor Week, and he took the time to explain why you shouldn't buy a now-classic E46 BMW 3er.
What if I told you there's a new, RWD, German sedan with a manual transmission, sport-tuned suspension, turbocharged four-cylinder engine, near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, and 18-inch wheels that you could get for $34,745 with the destination? Here's the six-letter order code you need to get just that.
