More Cursing Too
I'm an avid reader, although my current car is a gas-guzzling, small-block V8 (from the description, you can tell the country of origin). I never miss reading what Mr. Bidrawn has to say. If there's one thing I look forward to seeing in the mag, other than the cars, it's his articles. I especially like that you don't hold back in times of swearing and cursing. It gives the stories more reality. Thanks again for the great fun reading.

Front-Engined 911?
OK, who was the guy with the job of placing the numbered pointer/arrows on the 2007 911 S? Arrow number one (for engine) is placed on the wrong end of the rear-engined beast.

More Weapons, Please
I've been reading your magazine since it was VW & Porsche, but this is the first time I remember anything on the Bowie Knife (Icon, July '08). It was a good article, but you missed one of the key features. The top edge of the blade had a brass inlay which caused the opponent's knife to dig into the brass, allowing the user to wrench the opponent's knife from his hand. In keeping with the European theme, how about an article on the Luger pistol or Mauser rifle?

Why Ask Why?
When I subscribed, I was looking forward to articles about the smaller, more fuel-efficient cars that abound in Europe. Instead, I got a magazine loaded with supercars that few can afford or even want. A car that goes zero to 60 in four seconds is of little use on our roads today. What most people are looking for is a vehicle that does 40 miles or more on a gallon of fuel. It would be interesting to learn why Europe gets more practical automobiles than we do.

Two words: diesel, hatchbacks. With the exception of yourself-and some of us-Americans don't like either.

Euro Throwdown
When can we expect to see the long-awaited rivalry: Audi RS4, Mercedes C63 AMG and BMW M3 four-door? Also, a good but not-so-obvious comparison would be an SUV shootout, both on and off-road-Land Rover, Audi Q7, VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne. Also, when I say off-road, I mean off-road. Think Rubicon.
