I wont be buying this. I emailed them today offering my car as a feature and got a response saying there wasnt an issue that my car was suited to. This from a new magazine!

That is rather bad Ed, I agree I would have thought it would make a good article! It does raise the question of what kind of articles they are going to have if they can completely write you off and say no...

I imagine all they want is either cars like Terry's or Dezi's (S/C) or Blades (covered in Mugen Aero). I dont understand why they wouldnt want someone trying to do something a bit different on a budget.
What hacked me off was that the guy whos fixing my car has built dozens of feature/cover cars and it was him who told me to email this dude direct

Can you please call me on 01506 530496. I am dealing with Honda editorial / car submissions and don't believe we have spoken (certainly I have never had a conversation with anyone like you have had).

BTW - had a look at your build thread and the car is awesome - I have certianly never seen it before and wouldn't say no to featuring it (I publish & own the mags BTW)

We have not said no to anyone as yet for features - we certainly have never said that there are no issues that it is not suitable for - we havent finalised anything past issue 1 yet mate - so I am not sure who you have been speaking to. Can you come back to me please as I'd like to get this sorted.

We have been sent over a hundred possible features car suggestions and everyone is being told the same thing. We will look at every one when it comes in and keep them in a big pot and decide issue on issue what we will feature.

Hopefully we can speak soon

Thanks

Lesley

Why is it only Terry & Dezi who always get the mentions when talking about superchargers? :p

Me, gryffin & k20 king have all got them too (think we should all be referred to as a group..the 300bhp group) :p ;)

& out of all the uk owners with chargers I'm the only 1 who hasn't had it all done by a company...homebuilds FTW!

I did have an e-mail from Total Honda at the start of the year asking for more details but I managed to lose it somehow as I was on holiday. :(
