Cancelled my Volksworld sub today after.......

Post by BusBoyT2 » Tue Sep 29, 2009 9:24 pm

loads of years of subscribing I can't stand opening the mag and reading advert after advert! this months mags is full of them I don't think it's been this bad before. Thinking of subscrining to Ultra for a bit as thing they are a bit more focused on the job in hand. i.e. reporting on decent shows and featuring decent features!

I take volksworld & ultra,
IMO both have their bad points,as you say way to many adverts in vw and not enough UK features in ultra
The best one is SSVC.

I actually buy the mags because of the adverts. They tell me what's on sale and give me a good reason to try new vendors and a list of who they are. The coverage is bonus.

another trouble with a lot of the adds is that the prices are normally out of date, I know this is a universal issue but it's quite annoying when trying to price bits up. Your still best to call the sellers in the first place.

I know exactly what you mean on this one, I get EVO mag and it seems to be like 8pages before I even get to the intro page!

They once had something like 36 adverts for shell in there and got harassed with complaints!

EVO just like Volksworld - you can get a few months where really there isn't anything thet sets your world on fire (with the former - i don't really do the non aforadable 'supercars' - bloody loads :roll: ) and then a wee gem comes along. Both - after, must read this article and that - are always good to eventually be regulated for loo reading - just depends how fast it gets there.... I got this months Volksworld yesterday and it's already there - parp! :wink:

At the risk of stating the blindingly obvious, the ads help pay for the mags. No ads...no mag. If you don't like them, turn the page.

take your point,BUT it would be good to find something on the next page other than an advert. :)

yup this months camper and bus was an advert fest , but maybe thats due to the winter months coming and people will be in their garages tinkering away. So obviously a good time for traders to wack in loads of ads offering their wares so to speak!!
A lot of shiney high end vans have had write ups just lately in camper and bus be good to see some Ratty vans in there!!!
