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 29 April 2022

Great quality

Great magazine which accompanies the television series Reviewed 19 April 2022
