Default Team-BHP saving my money on Auto magazine

For the past 11 years I have been buying and reading Auto mags every month. But after I found team-bhp, so far I haven't bought a single copy. The news is already there on the site and the cover stories doesn't interest me anymore.

Thanks to all the guys.

Breaking News

" In a landmark judgement by the Administrator and agreed upon by the Moderators of this website, Team-Bhp is going pay! This shocking decision came only hours after a post on the website made the administrator and moderators worried whether their hardwork was going for nothing. Also calls by the leading auto mags requesting them to go pay seem to have now surfaced. God save Indian auto enthusiasts...... "

Oh hell! Don't worry we are still gonna be free for u guys. Lol. Thanx Satish, it really goes to show that we have been able to live up to the quality that acts as a substitute for a good car mag.

We are honoured!

Well indeed, a magazine is indeed a dead mass, Team BHP is lively, as its a real time offer for a lifetime for free.

Reduced my monthly magazine craving from 4 to one. Just can't resist ACI on the stands! But finish with the mag in under an hour; the excitement is waning for sure!

Almost the same story here too Satish. I used to read/buy Auto. mags since their arrival in India, later restricted to Autocar & occasionally Overdrive. But lately after being active on T-Bhp, mags. really don't interest me. Most of the information/news is available on T-Bhp. Used to an avid reader/buyer of ACI, even joined their own forum, but the callous/lousy atitude there coupled with great T-Bhp, encouraged me to shy away from Autocar mag. too now.
