International Car Magazines

Is it me or do most of the US based auto/tuner magazines suck? Pretty much all the same stories nothing new or exciting it seems all the good content is from international auto mags i.e, Performance BMW and BMW Car. The only issue with these is that they cost $10 at Borders or $100 to subscribe.

Maybe. Although I'd probably get irritated by all the cool cars they get over there that we don't get here. Ford Focus RS comes to mind...

BMW mags aside, "Evo" is what everyone buys here.

Only issue is the Euro car magazines seem to have a ton of advertising.
Page after page of Altezza taillights and photo-radar blockers.

Have you read EVO? There's a lot of good, well-written content in there.
