Now, there is a 2018 version of the Africa Twin and, believe me, it’s gotten even better. What’s new ... Read More »

Audi RS4 Avant 2018 review – One of the best of the breed

BMW M3 CS (2018) review: the best F80 M3 yet

The F80-generation BMW M3 hasn’t enjoyed universal critical acclaim in its standard form. For every one of its plus points, there’s a drawback, two particular criticisms being unpredictable handling on the limit and the diesel-like torque delivery of its gruff-sounding twin-turbo straight-six. Following on from the well-received Competition Package upgrade of 2016, BMW has taken the fettling a stage further with this new ... Read More »
