Testimonials about the magazine...


Here's what some member's have to say about the club magazine :

  • Many thanks for an opportunity to see the latest edition of your club mag. It's a stylish production that befits a stylish club!
  • Fresh, punchy, colourful, stylish, professional - new look GROWLER is excellent.
  • Outstanding - Real journalistic look - well beyond the efforts of any other car club I know - great job.
  • Great stuff guys , it's got a really fresh new magazine feeling to it, some things just get better and better.
  • I was very pleasantly surprised at the content of the GROWLER magazine - I think the Growler must be one of the best magazines issued by a club the size of the XKEC.
  • I can guarantee that you will all be very impressed with the look of the latest Growler issue. The only thing missing now is the barcode and £4.95 price tag on the back because it truly does look like it belongs in WHSmith.
  • Very impressive, and with all the quality one would expect from a Jaguar associated product.
