The new AM – examining the issues facing your dealerships

We’ve brought a new structure to your copy of AM magazine from this month, to make our content work harder for you and your business.

We aim to bring you much more food for thought and deeper analysis of the issues and opportunities franchised dealers are facing.

News continues to beat at the heart of AM’s media. It features in the pages of the print magazine in the format of a digest, covering the must-know events of the last few weeks. Of course, those events are also reported as they happen on, where registration is free and users can opt to receive an email bulletin each day.

These exciting developments follow conversations about strategic and operational planning with many franchised dealers.

No doubt there will be more conversation to come at the AM Executive Breakfast Club on August 17 and AM Used Car Conference on October 9. But in the meantime, we’ll welcome any feedback that you wish to share.

The new sections (download the new AM contents page as a PDF to have a closer look):


Market intelligence

Dealers can find the latest market intelligence from the month including used car stats, new car registration analysis, economic indicators affecting their business and customers, as well as essential finance information.

Have your say

This is where AM collates and invites reader feedback on topics we have written about, events they have been to or debates on the AM poll, social media networks or emails sent in to the team.


This section is where AM cracks open the issues facing franchised dealership businesses in detail with supporting evidence. AM will analyse and interpret trends using its exclusive data intelligence service AMi, to look at manufacturer brands in depth as well as call on expert analysts within the industry to give their advice on what will be affecting your business.


Dealers can come to the Insight section for some food for thought, to take ideas away that they can then implement to improve their business. It features in depth face to face interviews with leading figures of the franchised dealer industry as well as inspirational columns from outside the automotive world to help inspire dealers to improve their business.


AM tests the latest products that are heading to showrooms to give dealers the heads up on what the potential opportunity or threats are from their own franchise or rival franchises.
