Purple....Pink....Orange....and boobs

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesIts rude!!

"...that got to do with Max Power Magazine?? Well it was just for like minded people like myself, that lived, eat, slept and did other unspeakable things in the car! The mag had great features on how to make your car faster, louder and more pleasing to the eye. Several pages of adverts selling bits for my car were in there too, this was fantastic! Now, maybe I have grown up a little since I got married, not sure, but I had to buy a 5 door car ..." Read review

Maximum this - Maximum that

AdvantagesGood coverage of the featured cars, competitions, serious articles

DisadvantagesToo much nudity, Price?, High expectations

"...girls or the like. However, Max Power prefers to call them "Max Babes". Now this is all well and good for the male majority (not all), but what about the female readers and those who are of an impressionable age? Well many people have written into the magazine to address this issue, but to no avail. The general view seems to be tough - if you don't like it, don't buy it! What else it there? There are the cars - the whole point of the magazine. ..." Read review

Max Power cannot be derived from bra size can it

AdvantagesBest cars, worldwide, well designed.

DisadvantagesAmount of advertising, do we really need to see so many 16 year old girls breasts?, EMAPs editorial discretion is questionable.

"Max Power magazine, the biggest name in the Tuning Magazine industry. For some reason, Max Power has risen to the top of the pile of this type of magazine, and is now read by hundreds of thousands of regular readers each month. The staff line up isn't as impressive as the other magazines available, but a lot of those who work on magazines gained their reputation here at Max Power. Gez Jones (Fast Car) and Jon 'Proby' Walsh (Redline) are the noticeable ..." Read review

great for boy racers and serious modifiers alike

Advantagesplenty of info, many pics of top cars, lots of advice of mods to do, some beaut girls in it.

Disadvantagestoo many adverts, arrogant attitude to police, some minging girls modeling in it.

"...modified cars who all recomended Max Power to get ideas and advice of what to do to my car, and to see what other people have done to thier cars. After buying it for the first time, I was hooked by the whole car tweaking scene. The beauty of this publication is the fact it has a little something for everyone. It has plenty of information on tuning and styling top end performance cars like Saxo VTR's etc, (for the lucky rich boys who own these fine ..." Read review

Max info and ideas

AdvantagesFull of good ideas, the latest products and suppliers

DisadvantagesStyle of writing and style of presentation

"I buy this magazine because I like cars,I like to be different and I like my car to be different. If you want to carry out any sort of modification to your car, styling or performance increase, then this is the place to come to for ideas. Don't take the magazine to seriously. It's written to be understood by teenagers, contains a lot of naked women and has a large number of premium rate numbers advertised in it. Look beyond all of this and you'll ..." Read review

Fed up to the MAX

AdvantagesSome good articles, staff cars

DisadvantagesPoor writing content, some of the cars

"I’ve been buying MAX POWER for about a year now and have to say that I’m fed up with it. Don’t get me wrong there are some good articles and features to be read, its just not enough to merit buying it. When they do serious reports on, say car crime or driving under the influence these can be very interesting. There is a regular feature on new cars in which they test its handling and performance, giving guides on how it could be improved and ..." Read review

The definitive guide to arsing about in cars

AdvantagesGreat feature cars, good in-depth info and spec details, lots of nice pictures, half-naked women, not alot of irrelevant ads

DisadvantagesN/A

"...number of advertisments published in Max Power is around average for this type of magazine, as there are a good few of the usual parts, spares, and in car entertainment ads scattered throughout for any people looking to modify their cars. However, this isn't too bad and is quite normal for a car magazine as alot of people buy these magazines just for the ads, ie/ looking for a cheap cd player etc. Aside from these ads, there isn't really much in the ..."

The Guide to tarting up a shopping Trolley

AdvantagesLots of info on how to tart up your shopping trolley

DisadvantagesRead by the worst drivers in the country, and pricey to boot

"Max Power Magazine..... I'm sure you've all heard of it..... most likely via the sticker in the rear windscreen of a tarted up shopping trolley such as a Vauxhall Nova or Corsa, or a Citreon Saxo or Peugeot 106 and such like, being driven by some dopey little w***** who's just done one of the stupidest pieces of driving you've ever seen. You hope he gets caught by PC Plod, but then you remember they're all too busy messing about with them Speed camera ..." Read review

bums tits cars and players

Advantagesgives manufacturers something to copy

Disadvantagesmay not appeal to everyone

"Max power, for those of you who dont know is a motoring magazine aimed at 13-30 year olds. The emphisis is on modifying cars to make them go faster, handle better, sound better and have a great sound system. In order to appeal to the audience who are mostly men, max power spreads scantyly clad women (often topless) across its pages. This truely is a great magazine. To understand the true significance of this magazine on influencing the design of new ..." Read review

Max Power

AdvantagesCool Mag, full of cool info

DisadvantagesPrice, New look going on, adverts

"I have been reading Max Power for many years and id say it has to be my favourite mag. Now lately it has changed its look... Good thing or bad thing? Im still not certain yet. Lets start from the front cover.... Its a really bright coloured front page, definatly eye catching! First thing you will notice is the kitted up (Maxed) car which someone has spent ŁKKKKs doing up and just wants so show off... After all its their pride and joy.... ..." Read review

MAX filth

Advantagesgood advice and features

Disadvantagesaimed at school kids

"I have bought this mag since it was launched a few years back. At the time it was ground breaking because it was aimed at people like you and me and the cars featured could be our own. It still has the same basic concept and is still written in a jovial way but over the past year it has become stuck in a rut and a few other mags have actually passed it in terms of quality. Saying that it is still a good read with a mix of cars, ICE, cruises, tuning ..." Read review

A general rewiew of max power

Advantagessaves money, interesting reading

Disadvantagesdoes not appeal to everyone

"...quite a few issues of max power, and i do find it to be interesting reading (Although not to be taken too seriously) as i do a lot of modifying on my own car. There are a lot of tips and tricks of the trade that have saved me probably half the money that it would have cost at the garage. Also in the middle section of this magazine there are a lot of body kits, in car entertainment etc that you can buy, and mostly can easily fit them yourself. ..." Read review

MAXIMUM crap

Advantagesnone unless something comes free with the mag

Disadvantagesutter crap

"I dont buy this anymore. It used to be about buying a shed and doing it up for not much money and squeezing some extra bhp's out of it. Now every cover car is brand new. The people buy a brand new car and soup it up and add body kitt etc. Why not just buy a better car in the first place. They dont go on too much about Novas and escorts nowadays its japanese roadsters like MR2 and Suzuki Imprezas. The advice section is very patronising aswell they ..." Read review

Modified to the Max

AdvantagesBest of all the car magazines, Subscription savings are huge

Disadvantages Never any decent free gifts

"I was looking to buy my first car, and being an 18 year old male i wanted a good looking one.Restrained by a Ł1000 budget and a realisation that the insurance wud cripple me no matter what, i sought after a way to make a standard (Corsa,Punto,Micra,Fiesta etc) look more than average. The price is very reasonable, although there are a lot of adverts not relating to cars (Lotsa premium rate dirty hotlines) Fantastic car to girl ration makes this the ..." Read review

Top shelf material

AdvantagesGood articles - good cars

DisadvantagesToo much porn

"Maybe max power is losing a bit of direction - very shortly i may have to stop buying it due to the increasing content of tits and bums - my girlfriend is not too pleased with it. What an utter shame - the articles are written with as much devotion as the cars themselves. Maybe if they did a suplemnt of porn then i could just choose to throw that away and get on with the real business of reading about performance cars. So then guys if your reading ..." Read review
