Set to sport mode and exhausts turned on, I wo...

BMW has a new home on the Gold Coast. The new multimillion-dollar luxury flagship dealership opened late December and we popped along to have a look at the 11,000-square metre site and chat to Dealer Principal, Kathleen Broadway.

Driving into the new Gold Coast BMW dealership on Southport-Nerang Road, I’m struck by two things. It doesn’t look like a car dealership and it doesn’t feel like a car dealership. It’s more like a luxu...

When given the opportunity to test drive the new model BMW X5 M50d from Gold Coast BMW dealer principal Kathleen Broadway, I took full advantage. Being an SUV man myself, this seemed the perfect Dream Drives review for our Autumn edition.

It goes without saying the new X5 looks amazing with the all-new look and feel; it’s bigger and bolder than ever before. The car oozes that luxury SUV that every family wants to feel when on t...

DB11 takes grand touring to unprecedented heights……..

When asked to spend a few days in the Aston Martin DB11 it really was an easy decision to make.  To be given an opportunity to experience such phenomenal performance, aerodynamics and sheer craftsmanship in a motor vehicle is a true honour in itself.
