Top Gear Magazine?

Anyone get this? It's $150 for a 12 month subscription but it might make a nice gift (xmas, birthday, father's day..)
Looking for people who get it and can provide opinion on whether it's worth the big bucks, considering you can get an American car magaine for less than $20/year.

If they are a fan of the show they would like it.

They should make a Top Gear Video Game.

brit mags cost a mint
exchange rate + shipping + they don't really discount for subs vs buying at the store

but that said they don't whore themselves out to their advertisers as much as american mags do either, their reviews tend to be reviews not ad copy

Can you buy it at a Barnes and Noble or Borders? I've never seen it there ... but haven't really looked, either.

If I am buying a Brit magazine for that kind of cash I would rather spend it on EVO.

British Auto and Motorcycle magazines PWN American Auto and Motorcycle magazines. Go to B&N and look at an issue of Motorcycle News. Then go pick up an issue of Sport Rider. Absolutely NO comparison whatsoever.

Same goes for Top Gear vs Car & Driver/Road & Track/Motor Trend. They all suck compared to Top Gear.
