don't worry... I'm sure they will bump up all their prices 15% to cover the free mags.

Well if you read the low buck solutions, you'll see that the FM boutique pricing is in full effect. In the end they purchased one component from FM and the rest from Goodwin... for some reason they felt the need to have the FM front sway bar. LMAO.

I got one too.

I highly doubt FM actually paid for anything. Most likely GRM paid FM for a mailing list, or FM gave them their mailing list and in exchange will get a kick back for each "free" magazine that gets converted into a paid subscription.

GRM asked if they could send a free issue to FM's customers and FM said "sure,' thinking that it would be a nice thing for their customers. Some might even be grateful and not bitch so much.

I didn't get one... maybe it's because I've moved 3 times since the last time I bought from them :(

GRM is one of the few car mags worth subscribing to. Too bad they only do 8 issues a year.

I will keep you filled in on it if you like scot I read it for free anyway most of the time. With 67800 copys flaoting around for every printing a few thousand for internall use and a few hundred for us it is no big deal it costs them maybe 100-150 $ totall including postage to do something like that i emailed the Tim guy on the front cover and told him thankyou. And also said he needed to lowbuck turbo that bitch we all need to email him and point him to this site.

I got one at my grandparents house. I am not sure how they found this place since I have never ordered anything from them from this address. Maybe they are stalking me. I can complain I really liked the magazine and will be subscribing someitme soon.

My wife bought me a 10 year subscription a few months ago. Yes, one of the few mags (not just car mags) worth reading.

I've been meaning to get off my lazy *** and get a subscription to GRM. This is the perfect opportunity to do it. Thanks FM!
