It went downhill in later editions however, seeming to want to cater for "yoofs on peds" and page 3 grannies. I was browsing my local newsagent recently however, and came across the 10th. anniversary edition and actually bought it! It seemed to hark back to the standard of the early editions,and was quite a good read. I hope they can keep the standard up for future editions.

ditto!...i picked up a copy today and actually enjoyed reading it. They have an interesting 250/300 pepsi challenge across the board, and it seems the bigger maxi's will be in the next issue. 8-)

It all depends what market they were aiming for, 6/7 years ago they catered for the younger generation or yoof as you put because they were 95% of their readers at the time with me as one of them. I stopped suscribing when I sold my Italjet Dragster.

The bigger Asda stores have huge magazine rack, and you can read for ages unnoticed!
