This week, Paul Maric leads the way while regular co-host Mandy Turner wrestles a cold, but Mikes Costello and Stevens are on-board to hold his hand.

What happened in this week's episode?

They couldn't share the details last week, but this week Paul and Mike C give us a proper rundown on their their time in the new F-Type SVR hero and the powerful new Audi S4.

Curt calls in to tell us how about our CX-3 long-termer, reviewed this time with some help from CA staffer Kathryn and the little Mazda2.

David McCarthy from Mercedes-Benz Australia schools the boys on the risks surrounding parallel imports, and warns the government it's time to kill off the luxury car tax.

In the news, Volkswagen says it will launch 30 new EVs by 2025, sales of cheap cars are dropping off dramatically, indicative pricing for the new Mazda CX-9 has surfaced, Volkswagen has released local details for the all-new Tiguan, a replacement for the Ford Territory is nearing, Suzuki's CEO has stepped down over fuel shenanigans, and the ALP says it will block the parallel imports scheme if elected.

And, as is now tradition, we highlight a few 'what the' reader comments. Because if you can't single out the odd units on-air, what's the point of wielding all this power?
