I don't really think much of any of the US mags. The ones for me are CAR and EVO

I have a subscription to all above. Agreed they are not as good as the UK publications (I buy occasionally) but at $10-12 per year each, they make decent throne reading

None of the above. I buy mags based on what tests they run, but all the info is usually available on their websites soon after publication.

My favorite of all the above is Car and Driver, I like their sense of humour and the fact that they are based in a winter zone.

Bimmer Mag is also in none of the above, and I don't respect them much anymore....too many tuner Bimmers, and their long-term test of the E90 is a joke.

Exactly those are the same ones I subscribe to. Bimmer is my favorite 3.4L M3
