So the forum ate my previous post AHHHHHHHHHH

Looks great. That Mercedes Black Falcon sounds great! And I can't wait to buy the Cadillac Eldorado!

560 MSP or free with Season Pass

This is the last pack to come with the season pass. They gave you six this is the sixth. I had to count on my fingers [Nov(Thumb), Dec(Pointer), Jan(Middle), Feb(Ring), March(Pinky), April (Back to thumb). The Porsce pack ($20) comes out in late May so I guess we'll see what they bring us. Will they have another pack in May in addition to Porsche overload?

The video:

I found it lacking especially for being the last one in the season pass.

Monthly rivals event will be with the 2011 Mercedes-Benz #35 Black Falcon SLS AMG GT3. Enter a time each week, 100 randoms from that list will win a Unicorn. It's called Coming to America. Eddie Murphy jokes aside I think it will be on an American track.

Another month. Another exciting track people.

I love the Cadillac and the RX-7. Not too familiar with the rest, save the Scion, which I think is ugly as sin.

I like cars made before 2000. The ones in this pack are pretty interesting, especially the El Dorado. I think that Volvo looks like it could be fun, too.

I knew someone with one of those RX-7s. He ended up putting a fair amount into fixing the engine (old rotary engine, parts would not be cheap) because it gave him trouble but he insisted on keeping the car.

I think I might buy the season pass so i can get all the cars. I still put more time into Forza 4 than any other game. Plus I want that baller BMW. I love me some mid 90's to early 2000's BMW M3s and M5s.

This may be the pack I buy the highest percentage of cars for my garage right out of the gate.  The old Merc, the Caddy, The mazda, the Volvo, the M5 (super excited about this one), the Maserati, and most likely I'll buy the Scion too (and maybe the Jag.  I hear that's a good car to tune around with.  Idk- because it is really ugly. Depending how much cr I have I'll buy the racing mercedes too.  Not too excited about the Aston Martin, but that I want to buy and drive the rest is pretty cool.  Fairly excited.

Swap out the Scion Tc for the FR-S and this would have been my favorite car pack yet. It might still be.

I know what I'll be doing with that Merc!
