welcome

With autumn on the horizon it might seem like a slightly odd time to consider buying a convertible BMW, however, personally I find there’s nothing better than roofless motoring when the autumnal sunshine is out and the air is clear and crisp. That prices tend to be a touch lower than during the height of summer is an added bonus for those considering taking the plunge. In this issue we take two generations of Zed roadster for a spin – the White family have both an E36/7 Z3 1.9i and an E89 Z4 sDrive20i M Sport in their stable so they’re well placed to assist us in making an interesting generational comparison, p10. If you need something slightly more practical than a two seater then perhaps the E93 335i Convertible,…

m3 touring announced

BMW has confirmed that an M3 Touring is in development – expected to come to market two-years from now. It is not the first time BMW M has developed a fast estate car, but it will be the first production M Touring-based on a 3 Series model. BMW enthusiasts have long hoped for M performance in a 3 Series combined with the practicality and functionality of a Touring, and BMW M has in-turn long been fascinated by idea of selling such a vehicle. In fact, BMW M has gone so far as to build such cars in the past – albeit not production models. The most recent instance was 20-years ago in 2000 when we were treated to a prototype E36 M3 Touring (pictured below), but the concept sadly went…

BMW has revealed full details of its new 545E xDrive saloon, its top-of-the-range 5 Series plug-in hybrid. Almost 50,000 5 Series plug-in hybrid models were sold worldwide in 2019, making them the most successful electrified models in the BMW Group’s portfolio.

b road hunting club

With the success of ‘coffee and cars’-style venues such as Caffeine & Machine in Warwickshire and Fuel Coffee House in East Sussex has come a fresh appetite for automotive destinations. These are places enthusiasts can set out to visit in their pride and joy, meeting like-minded people with a penchant for petrol (and diesel, and electricity…), while also grabbing a drink or a bite to eat. Such sites are few and far between in South East England, enter a new premises in Marden, Kent – just outside of Maidstone. B Road Hunting Club is an intimate coffee shop that also offers design services, car modification and more – think of it as a mini Caffeine & Machine with a twist. It has been created by car enthusiasts Edd Little and Roger…

a family affair

Most of us will probably go through life without having fully sampled the delights of an open car. Sure, you might have a ride in a friend’s soft top every now and then, but for most of us the roadster or even the slightly more practical convertible won’t be on a list of potential cars when it comes to replacing your current motor. For many of us this will simply be down to practicalities – fitting a family in a convertible or roadster just isn’t possible and worries about leaking hoods and cold and damp interiors over the winter months puts many people off running one – even if they don’t need the space of a larger car. But not the White family who own not one, not two, but three…
