    Post Magazines

    Hi all.

    I just wondered which car magazines you read?

    I like PVW but it's really more VW (hence the VW of PVW) than Audi and rarely features any Audi's at all. Same with Golf+ I suppose.

    There's Audi Driver which I only read in WHSmith's but it's more about newer cars from the quick look I had.

    And from searching around here I notice that theres Total Audi, but it's not available at the moment. Is it any good?

    I'd just like a PVW type magazine for Audi's!

    Smitch: This the Razzle your on about? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Razzle_(magazine) Not really what I was after!!

    Never read CAR magazine. Isn't Evo new cars or have I got that totally mixed up with another magazine?

    Don't like Max Power, Fast Car and all that. I like the more Euro type styling as opposed to the Jap styling in those magazines...

    Its the tunning i tend to read them for, the new format is covering a wider range of the modding market, which is about time really, not a read now either. as i said it went really chavvy but its on the way back up now IMO

    Yea, I suppose I haven't even looked at it in the shops for a good few years.

    I know VW's are more common to modify, but I like the way that PVW covers them, and even the adverts are all VW-related (obviously!). Just seems a pitty that there isn't (or is there?) this type of magazine for Audi's...

    That's why i think this forum does so well. Cos of the lack of information on modding in the press.

    I read Auto Express and Men's Health, Men's health is really a good read, one of the only mags I can read all of.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    Very funny!

    And yes I see your point about why this forum is as good as it is!!

    It does get me thinking about how difficult it would be to produce such a magazine.... If there's a definate need for it I mean...

    Thank you!!!

    If there's nothing too great out there (Audi-magazine wise), then it's time to create an Audi Sport magazine!

    I spend way too much on magazines

    I buy
    Evo
    Performance Tuning (new decent format)
    Total 911 (Will buy one some day)
    Autocar
    Home Cinema Choice
    Audi Driver
    Performance VW

    Plus the Autotrader every week - never know when there is a bargain looming.

    I picked up a copy of Max power this month also as the Cayman on thr front cover caught my eye- the format is much better and moving more towards where it used to be years ago, rather than full of Chav mobiles. Dont think I could read it every month, but worth a flick through in the news agents.
