Just got the 30th Anniversary special edition issue, available in Luxembourg from 6 March, one day before than expected.
In Luxembourg, there are many wonderful newspaper shops to find C&SC. In fact, a few of them monthly display not less than 84 different car magazines in 5 languages.
C&SC is available in Luxembourg in almost every newspaper shop, from popular supermarkets such as Auchan-Kirchberg, Belle Etoile-Bertrange or City Concorde-Bertrange, to the train station or traditional kiosk at Place d'Armes. But I often buy C&SC at Messageries du Livre, the biggest bookshop in the country.
By the way, I am just browsing the huge April issue which looks very promising. Price has raised from the usual €8,20 to the new €8,75 tag, though, but still terrific value for contents ratio.

Like, I suspect, most people on here I subscribe.

The pros: It's cheaper, and it arrives a little before it hits the news stands.

The cons: It usually carries minor scars from being in the post, and I miss the experience of going into a shop in search of the holy grail: that pristine, untouched-by-human-hands copy at the back of the pile!

That sounds good Mario however, I need to precise that the price remains the same in UK. I think the reason they increased it slightly in EU and the rest of the world is due to postage costs. But otherwise, the price is the same. Ref. Page 12 of C&SC April issue

The fact that this edition contains 420 pages instead of the 250 odd pages makes it much heavier and because postage is mainly based on weight, I believe that's why they increased it slightly to cover their costs. I spoke to the team last week and they assured me they wanted to keep it the same to thank all genuine and long term readers for their commitment to the magazine, just like us :)

I got it this week and I can tell you, This is something else. I will probably take me the whole month to read it but Hey, I can't really complain and I am sure I will enjoy every single page. Happy reading everyone and a big thank you to C&SC team!

Always a good C&SC supply at Kiosk place d'Armes. Luxembourg.
A little heaven for C&SC and car magazine readers.
Besides, French and German versions of C&SC are also available!

I subscribed for years, and really ought to start again - it's easy to get a copy here in Frankfurt (Germany), but 12.80 € an issue is just plain mad!

That's why it is better to subscribe, it's nmore cost effective. I used to get it when I lived in Mauritius and believe me, it was more expensive to get it there. When I subscribed, I got a much better deal. Talk to the guys at C&SC Coventry, I am sure they can help!

I use to buy C&SC at Frankfurt airport when I am in transit.
It is a good spot for buying it and in a few minutes you can read it at 30,000 ft

I can find C&SC only in a few newsstands in my country at whopping 13,80€ (with delay of 20-25 days). Good news is that I am not living in Russia.

Subscription? With post reliable like Maserati Biturbo...no thanks.

I have a subscription which normally with airmail gets here - Australia - within 7 to 10 days, although thus far, now the 12th, the big April 30th anniversary job has not arrived.

Arrived Friday 16th but I guess for a magazine that heavy by airmail I should not complain. Now I know it is going to take me most of the next month to get through before the May mag' arrives.
