Best automotive MAGs, looking to subscribe Help please?

I'm looking to subscribe to a couple Car magazines to read when I'm bored.

Can you guys give some suggestions to which are the best reads with the best content?

I went to dubai for vacation and picked up a magazine called CAR.. it was great because it had intresting topics and the pages were huge and glossy.

Any suggestions, (not sure if they sell CAR in the US)

Autoweek
Automobile
Road and Track

I have read CAR in Barnes and Nobles, so I am sure you could get a US subscription

CAR and EVO are the best. Both UK mags.

Car and Driver sucks. But surprisingly, it looks like they're making a decent attempt at improving.

Road and Track is solid, but not noteworthy.

Motor Trend is good shit. Ranks high for US material.

Automobile is also good shit.

Automobile for American mags is my favorite.

Why do you like MotorTrend more than Car and Driver? I had subscriptions to both and they pretty much seemed like the same mag to me.

OP, also check out Eurotuner and European Car for more BMW content.

Yes, I'd agree that Car and Evo are the best English-language car magazines in print right now, giving a slight edge to Evo if you can only afford one (they're ~$11 US). I buy around 10 car magazines a month, and I only keep 3: Car, Evo, and BMW Car.

Restricted to US titles, I'd choose Automobile.

This minus autoweek. Also BMW sends those biennial issues of their magazines.

MT and Automobile here. Sometimes they are covering the same stuff but would be the case with and two mags in the same industry.

Wouldn't get C&D. R&T only if MT or Auto don't deliver to your locale.
