And it's UGLY... the old one (white one) was much classier. Am I alone on this?

I think it looks great. The main page navigation is a little awkward, but that might just be my personal settings. I greatly prefer white fonts on darker backgrounds due to my visual problems, so this is a lot easier on my eyes.

Its a lot quicker and smoother than the old one but im going to had to side with sparky on this, white text on black backgrounds is so much easier on the eyes.

This.
 
I really want to see how this game pans out after the disappointment that was Forza 3. Hopefully they can refresh it back to FM2 standards, at the very least.

@Sparky_Buzzsaw: I agree the white text on black is easier to read but I just wish they took it easy on all the bevels, drop shadows & vents (see image). I'm sure most people don't worry about such things but I think the look they created with FM3 (Web and Game) was the most refined and clear of all the racing games out there.

from what i'm hearing, the new site will have tons of new features... alot of game integration. as we get closer to the launch of fm4, the site will be a lot more useful... it's not just about the looks of it.

Wellp, I guess I'll never see it because you have to install silverlight.

In the big scheme of things it's a pretty nice site. I think it's more that all the design surrounding FM3 was so amazing - some of the best branding and design I've ever seen in a videogame.

It still looks pretty nice to me, I'm alright with either design.
