This is good news indeed. Hope they bring their original flavour and quality to India also.

Have been a subscriber since a year and was worth a renewal this year as well.

There write ups are really diffrent and just wished that they had launched the India edition earlier.

Now that the website is here, there would be extra goodies each month as well.

India is the only country after UK, USA and Australia to get a Top Gear website! Speaks of the number of TG fans that exist in India now. The magazine is one of the most unbiased ones in the market and does not have your 'typical' car reviews. I have been a subscriber since the very first month TG India was launched

That's because the web reviews are not done by the writers. Hopefully things will change.

Just read a couple of reviews and I am sure rest will agree, cant even call them reviews.

I seriously think if we have a Team- Bhp automobile magazine, it will do far better then whats available in the book stores across India.

Good News that! Maybe it has something to do with the show getting launched on BBC Entertainment channel. It's not the latest season i believe.

Nothing to do with the channel...the website was to be out a few months ago, but ran into some technical and paperwork glitches.

Get the issue, another reason these online stories are lacking because they are from the current issue and are condensed for obvious reasons.

Drifter, you shouldn't be asking people to buy the magazine.

Then who writes them? Website should be an extension of the magazine or even better as more people view the site than their magazine.

Fully agree regarding review. And No doubt about Team-Bhp magazine. Mods should seriously consider this.
