Know we're going off topic now, but I read whichever mag has the most interesting in it for any month.

Recently, this has extended to include Your Horse, Rolling Eyes Wink Smile as a couple of months back that had more of interest in it than any of the usual LR mags, sorry to say! Shocked

But seriously, I'd rather stand in Smiths and have a look at which is going to be of most interest and most use than subscribing to any one brand these days.

ive stuck with LRM because i think they're 'project vehicle' articles are good - but you really do need to read from one issue to the next, other wise you miss out on bits and get lost - which of course is what they intend!!

I have a subscription to LRO, but I read others from time to time if they have something particularly interesting in them.

I've got literally boxes of LRO going back to the mid 90s - along with a few issues of LRE, LRM, etc.

I usually subscribe to LRO but occassionally buy one other landy rag if its got something interesting in it. Must admit LRM has been MUCH better than LRE over the past couple of years. I'm even tempted to swap allegience when the sub expires! Of course, I'll be buying LRM next month for the club write up - they'd better make it a good un Wink

The Magazine (series 3 club)would get my vote as the rest just seme to be completly interesting in advertising, in one form or another, having said that i have a subscription to LRW.

I seem to have that little bit of luck when I do something I havn`t done before, a voice in the back of my head says, "I`m sure there was a feature on this in one of the issues" so I don`t mind spending half an hour sorting through them. In an earlier post I replied to I didn`t want to say which mag I prefered as it was a reply to a new member and people should choose their own and not be guided by anyone else, but the only one I ever bother with is LRO, so my vote is cast Very Happy

I subscribe to LRO, I do read some of the others very occasionally, if they look interesting. Not a big fan of paparatzi spy shots though.... Rolling Eyes

I have all but LRE and get fed up with the yearly cycle it seems that every thing is repeated every year and adverts
The next Club magazine will be arriving with members soon, posted out on Friday.
The bigot, said he also was not that happy with advertising. I would like to say that with the clubs magazine, we have advertising, but if lets say we had another company put a full page colour advert in, this would NOT decrease the number of pages for articles it would give the club another
colour page + another 3 black & white pages
