    Default Good Bye PakWheels Magazine .....

    Hello,

    I know everybody must be waiting for the February 2007 magazine issue, and some of them will be surprised why it's late? basically the magazine is not late... we have stopped publishing the magazine, the reason being initlaly the budget was allocated for six months expenses of magazine publishing but during that period unfortunately we were not able to do a break-even on expenses even in the last month mainly due to lack of good paid advertisements. So I guess it's time to say good bye to PakWheels magazine none the less the overall market response was very much overwhelming, but to run the magazine ads are needed.. and we tried our level best.

    So bottom line, Jan 2007 was the last issue that was published and Feb 2007 issue won't be published.

    I thank everyone who supported PakWheels and you know who you are!

    Best Regards,
    Jag

    P.S. we will be refunding money to people who subscribed to the magazine annually.

    This remindes me of "Motoring" published by Agha Motors, mainly by tauseef agha so 14 yrs ago (i think), after 2 or 3 issues that magzine met the same fate
    If better were within, better would come out.

    awww shucks!
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    @Jag, How much were the Net losses for these 6 Months in total ? i mean if those losses were huge then id say its ok to shut it down, but if the losses are bareable then you may have overcome them in a few months.....

    Do what I suggested a long long time ago...Pakwheels website membership fee for Rs.1500-2000 per year. I think everyone can afford that much. Think.
