Car enthusiasts need their own syndrome. In a world where everything from medical conditions to social ailments are labelled and described, it seems only fair that those who exhibit the symptoms of pouring money and time into their cars should be recognised. Possible suggestions could run along the lines of 'Automoneypit Syndrome', 'Mycarismylife' Syndrome or perhaps 'Ididn'tknowwhentostop' Syndrome! We all know someone who suffers from one or all of the above, and before anyone points a finger, Troy Hagan will self-confess, with his 2007 9n3 Polo Gti the most recent example of his condition. Troy has owned and modified a variety of small cars, including Datsuns, an Astra Gsi, Integra and a VR6 Golf, so he is well versed in 'hot hatch' culture and had always harboured the desire to own a Volkswagen of that calibre.


VW Magazine Australia

VWMA is an Australian owned and published enthusiasts magazine serving both the aircooled and watercooled Volkswagen scene nationally. Published quarterly (Feb, May, Aug, Nov), the magazine is available through newsagents Australia wide or via subscription, and covers every aspect of the hobby, from the very early models through to the latest innovations, motorsport, offroad, kit, custom, books, toys and shows. If it doesn't appear in VWMA then it isn't VW related.

Now in its seventh year, VWMA also hosts two drag racing weekends, sponsors a variety of VW shows, and supports events across the country. Printed and distributed by Australian companies, VWMA is also fortunate to have access to a talented pool of home based VW photojournalists and print/web technicians, who work with VWMA to produce quality VW entertainment each issue. And in 2011, the magazine's website has evolved to encompass the online and portable information revolution with the inclusion of additional media content to enrich the printed reading experience.
