Unhappy end of BIMMER mag

I've been a long time reader and subscriber of BIMMER magazine. I opened a letter from them stating the magazine will no longer be in publication.
They are ending the magazine, and the last issue will be the April edition. I know a few BMW fanatics here must have been readers and will too miss it. The Tech letters and answers from Mike Miller were outstanding. He really dedicated a great deal of info over the years on the 3 Series. He is also on at BMWCCA's magazine Roundel. So as time and magazines decline with the internet, just wanted to put a shout out to those who work at the magazine and read the forum. Your magazine, writers and editors will be missed from my reading every month. Thank you

That is indeed unfortunate, but what they ought to do is take the good content from BIMMER and combine it with the good content from Roundel. That'd make for a great magazine. Roundel has been pretty boring lately.

Sucks. I thought the Bimmer Mag was far better than Roundel. The only thing I looked at in Roundel was the classifieds.

Agree. Roundel has become pretty useless. I used to read most of it but it has very few topics of interest to me anymore. I could care less about the endless coverage of hybrids,electric cars,SUVs and bloated luxury barges that make up the rest of the lineup.

2nd. I could care less about another wine tour with retired folks! Seems it also has a lot more political content in it which is a major turn off. I read Mikes Q&A and the classifieds. Moved on to Grassroots Motorsports.

This. I liked Bimmer, and I've been a CCA member for years, but Roundel has been lame for quite some time. I'd rather just get a separate tech review / classified magazine and leave it at that. There are no new BMWs that interest me, so all the rest of the info in Roundel is useless. My shop gives me the CCA discount no matter what, so I'm hardpressed to fork out the $48 for this year's membership.
