  • The all-new Audi Q5 and SQ5 review – luxury in an all new skin.

    Since 2009 there have been 25,500 sales of Audi’s popular Q range, however the Q range is most certainly bankrolled by the mammoth Q7 that accounts for 42 percent of sales. However, the previous Q5 had grown tired, so like the A5 it needed a kick in the pants....

  • Holden Captiva LTZ Review – EFTM Quick Fix.

  • Foxtel Now review: Foxtel finally gets it.

    When the news of changes to Foxtel’s streaming service started to flow through, one had to be skeptical – what were they cutting, what was changing, how radical would this “new look” Foxtel be?  Well – I’ve given it a test, and it’s going to reshape the company –...

    The Microsoft Surface Studio – it’s a bold statement from Microsoft that they aren’t going anywhere.  A complete re-think of the PC that will have many designer types and trendsetters stuck with a quandary : is the iMac still the desirable desktop of choice? Let’s not beat around the...

  • Built Ford Tough, The Ranger Review

    My dad grew up in a different country and worked on a farm from a young age. Manual labour was the tool of trade and the donkey was the animal to keep things moving. As years went on, trucks would take the largest loads and slowly the humble ute...
  • Sphero Ultimate Lightning McQueen Review: What a toy, seriously impressive robotics from Sphero

    Nothing says impressive like a $500 price tag on a toy car – that is when it’s the Ultimate Lightning McQueen from Sphero.  This is not your average movie merchandise.  This is not your average toy. Sphero are the kings of robotics, their basic Sphero rolling boll toy was...
  • Ford Mondeo Titanium Wagon Review

    Before the rise of the “must have SUV” mentality when it comes to family cars, the wagon and large sedan dominated the roads. The likes of a Ford Falcon or Holden Commodore were the go-to options and they dominated driveways in Australia and even a taxi car of choice....
  • Big Wheels: Nissan Patrol V8 Ti Review – Quick Fix

    It was 2014 when Chris Bowen first took the Nissan Patrol Y62 V8 variant for an epic run through mud and snow. A scenario that led us to award it the EFTM 4×4 of the year. Fast forward to 2017 and he’s back in it, still the same car...
  • Ford Everest Review

  • Toyota Landcruiser 200 GXL Review: the most capable off-road vehicle for Australian conditions

    The Toyota Landcruiser has long been the go to vehicle for those looking to tow, go off-road or simply have a chunk of metal bigger than anyone else in the burbs. Its latest update brings a new, almost American front end, but in general more of the same. Chris...
  • Living with the Toyota Corolla Hybrid – Long term drive review

    I’ll be completely honest, I couldn’t own a Prius.  Not because I want to burn fuel and am anti-green, I just don’t like the look of it – never have.  I feel like it’s designed to stand out, and make a statement – that it does well.  So if...
