Good for nothing.
I agree with Bullfrog.
Bought the magazine, very eagerly, since the cover says Performance. I was really disappointed, Very amatur magazine, and the worst thing is it doesn't cover anything on Performance or modification except two pages abotu filter, exhausts etc.
Need much planning, knowledge etc for bringing magazines to the market. Not just varnished papers and pictures.
Another magazine that disappointed me is Zigwheels - reason - all old aand late news. Other magazines covered them last month.

'Read' through the magazine. Emphasis on 'read' because, to be frank, i didnt read it full. There were sections that were interesting, sections that were difficult to finish, sections that i completly ignored as well.
It is the first edition, hence I'm not mentioning the obvious errors in the magazine, just my suggestions. (Hope someone at driveodd will drop by)
Believe it or not, thats 60 pages excluding the ads!
Also, the fonts are arrangement of stuff leave a lot to be desired. For example, white font on a picture with white sky. It was not an easy read!
Liked the body kits section, interiors section is a good idea (but had only an introduction- no contents or cars covered), 'under hood' section where performance modification is explained in a rather simple way.
There was a feature on turbochargers which was a welcome read. More of such content is also welcome!
Infact, they mention in one article, swap engine 'preferrably B16A' on a general article on performance mods. Mo mention of which car, why B16A! Also, i was left totally clueless as to how swapping to iridium wires will 'minimally affect performance and handling'. Seemed like they didnt get time to review the articles.
Overall: Not worth the price tag in its current form. However, I do appreciate the intention behind bring out a performance and modification magazine. Hopefully, the quality of content will get better with future editions.

I like the article that they covered on Paris Hilton's PINK BENTLEY. I had tears in my eyes when i saw the kind of "Atyachar" done to the poor Bentley. Especially glittering up the logo from a wonderful B to PH. This is what happens when ppl have too much money and have no idea about cars.
