Some issues are good, others are more vanity than substance

I have been reading Top Gear since issue 1 and in the early days it was really informative, now it's more about having fun, which I don't have a problem with. It's just not as informative as it used to be. Reviewed Friday, 29 April 2022

Great quality

Great magazine which accompanies the television series Reviewed Tuesday, 19 April 2022
