Wait...the magazine where they're like..."Hey fool! I'm media, I don't care if it's your event, I don't car if it's your car, don't mess with me, I do what I want...I DO WHAT I WANT! I ask girls to take pictures with most of their clothes off and flirt with them so maybe one of the chunky ones will give my insecure a$$ some action...I'll be nice to your face and diss you behind your back while I hang out with all the dudes who wear the same clothes as me and want to swing from my nuts" ...that one?

only magazine I read/subscribe to is GRM.

I occasionally flip through others at friends houses but they all are written for the lowest common denominator. I do like what S3 is doing these days. www.S3mag.com

well I used to read sport compact car... but they axed it. So now I read motoIQ and online mags.

Sometimes I'll pick up a road & track, car and driver or motortrend to see whats going on with new cars but otherwise most import mags are just there for the pretty pictures.

Car Craft, cause it's aimed at the DIY'er, loads of tech stuff, and builds done a realistic budgets. Hot Rod once in a while, but I don't care for the "built-with-a-blank-check" feature cars.

Super Street yo!

Actually I used to read that a lot but F&F ruined it all for me. Maybe a Modified or Project Car here and there but I don't pay much attention to rags anymore.

Project Car would have been such a good idea 6 to 8 years ago

But 95% of what they cover is all on forums, I have every single issue and its rare I find something that I vaguely didn't know about.

I think we need a straight up, unbiased drifting magazine. Pref online, but willing to subscribe to something like a English version of "Option" or "Doriten".

x2 when a magazine is out, that information is already a few weeks behind due to the internets. Why pay to read outdated info?

Just like newspapers, magazines either need to go digital, or RIP.

1.Super Street for detail and car specs.
2. Import Tuner to look at pretty cars and chicks.
3.Motor Trend for everything else I might have missed.

i have subs to:
D sport - clean easy to read layout. high quality paper. dvd's!!!!
pas - good mix of everything
Import tuner & modified - just because. every know and then i find something interesting.

the info is pretty much the same in all of them. but the parts guides in pas and dsport are the best. dsport has dvd's that kick major *Censored**Censored**Censored* even though its pretty much just a video version of the magazine. the quality of paper dsport uses is better then everyone else. it matters to me since i actually had to pay for it.
