    BMW CAR Magazine March 2018 - cover has an embarrassing error...

    Ooops.... Well I guess the E63 *is* probably the closest thing to an E31 that BMW has made to date! (including the G14/G15). Email has been sent to Kelsey Publishing Shop...

    It's error is that mine is not on the cover

    Seriously, that is a pretty bad mistake.

    I know E63 is a BMW designation, but every time I see it, I can only picture a pretty awesome mid-sized Benz. I wouldn't mind the wagon version of one myself!

    I'm not familiar with that publication, either -- is it a UK offering? From what I have seen, they have great automotive press over there. Over here it seems to be just the same big three or four rags re-hashing the same stuff every month.

    Cheers, John

    It’s a UK mag and you can buy (individual) digital versions.

    That massive cover error would never have happened on Bob Harper's watch.
    Have been subscribed for over 20 years, but recently there's been some radical changes with this once-great UK publication: a new editorial team, with Bob no longer at the helm, and the mag is now thinner and smaller in size than I ever remember it being in the past.
    As well as that, it has become a bit bland and boring - I used to read it cover to cover but nowadays it just doesn't excite me that much. The only articles I tend to read are Bob's (he still contributes), and the odd DIY segment.
    Sadly, I will not be renewing my subscription next time.

    It's not a bad article, just one real howler spotted which was that we all have water-cooled alternators fitted. But there's nothing new in there either.....
