Good luck Autocar, hope the make-over brings what you hope of it. I 'll admit to not buying a copy in a very long time, but I will give it once over in the shop tomorrow and perhaps open my wallet!

  • If you want to know about a car, read a forum dedicated to it; that's a real 'long term test' . No manufacturer's warranty, no fleet managers servicing deals, no journalist's name to oil the wheels...

Well done on the new look and adding more features.I always look forward to a copy every Thursday.

Wonder how much it will be on digital through news stand. Evo is 2.99, which is a big enough saving over the printed edition. I tried the other digital download through zinio, it was ok, but didn't save your copy, meaning I had to download it on wifi before going out. Plus it wasn't any cheaper than a hard copy

Interested to see the mag is now available for the iPad on Apple's Newsstand. In the last year I dropped my print subscription and took up an electronic subscription through Zinio instead. I read the mag on my iPad using Zinio's reader. Question though ... how come an annual subscription is GBP89 through Zinio, and GBP 100 through Apple?

I hope you've gone back to binding properly and ditched staples.

Dear Autocar,

Why are you insisting on readers using Facebook to enter your subscription competition? If there's anything guaranteed to keep me way from a site, it is 'facebookisation'. I hope you don't go any further down this slippery slope...

[/quote] Grrrrrr... Haven't looked at it, but if the above is true, dear God, stop it! Never, ever, ever force your readers to have to use bloody, poxy, stupid, mindless Facebook for anything. Seriously, stop it right now. That stupid bloody site pesters me about a thousand times a day already, I don't need to give it another reason to pester me. Grrrrrr...

It's tantamount to elitism (and dare I say it, discrimination). I don't have a blasted Farcebook account and never will. I haven't seen it on Autocar yet either but I agree with JE and Lesia on this.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing these changes "on paper" (and another +1 here for the hopeful reintroduction of proper binding) providing my postman deigns to deliver my copy today.

Sounds good and can't wait to check out the mag and read about some driving experiences in the 1-77. One thing though, an iphone version and Android version, but no Nokia version? IOS and Android may be the current kids favourite phones, but there are still over a quarter of a billion people with Symbian-powered smartphones!
