Well, it’s that time of year when the various brands let us know how well they’ve done.

There are many awards from different organisations, magazines, and journalists, that it can get a bit overwhelming but why not.

You’ve got to take what accolades others are handing you for your good work.

BMW has announced that it’s been another great year from them too.

They included awards from both the public and those in the motoring circle. National and global.

We could go into great detail of what won what and why and by whom.

But suffice to say that the awards were many and they were given not just to the new 3 series (which won quite a few) but to vehicles in more or less every area of their ever-widening range.

From the small electric city runabout to the range-topping performance car
From the everyday company mile muncher to the traveling in style ‘I’ve arrived’ device

Regardless to say they also won numerous awards for everything that makes the wheels go round too.

The brand, innovation, technology, and safety.

You get the picture.
