    Yeah that and they have a slightly bigger e-peen score as well for people who care about that stuff.

    As far as the production numbers go, I’m actually considering to sell all my specialty dealer cars and re-buy them from the autoshow just to get rid of the stupid numbers on the top right of my screen.

    I'm already in the process of doing that to my collection, starting with the cheapest cars first. I'm not sure I'll bother replacing the most expensive cars, at least not until I have collected every car I want (need to prioritize wisely with every million to be earned in this game :crazy:).

    Good strategy. :) I already have all cars though and had close to 25 mill credits spare with nothing to do with it. Bought all missing unlocked cars yesterday and spent cash at the legendary driver gear crates until I dropped down to 15 mill. I can probably already buy all those cars without serial numbers but I don’t feel like going through all my cars to check for that.

    Turn 10 indicated ther may be changes to specialty dealer. Any hint on what those changes would be?

    Getting driver suits and badges could be cool. but that would overlap with lootbox

    I'd let FE and locked cars (there's still some of them) for the forzathon.

    There are still people who are interested in the low number serial numbered cars. Honestly, it's still worth a shot to buy it ASAP in the Specialty Dealer, and then turn around and sell it for max CR in the auction house. I have had some success in doing so.

    ... to get even more credits to not know what to do with them. ;)

    I am still 20 Million short to be able to buy all the cars, so I cant believe you can have too many credits;)

    Probably all the 425.000 weekly credits counting up since this is no doubt the Forza game I played the least of the bunch.

    That and the RAM Runner FE farming “exploit” close after launch.

    I'm not impressed... what the point if I can get those cars from the regular dealer?
    Is it still more expansive than the regular dealer?

    Since you can basically get all the cars without the need of the specialty dealer now, I'm unsure of what you were expecting.

    50% off every featured car would be a nice start. I know that's not exactly in line with the "specialty" theme, but anything to minimize the grind for credits wouldn't hurt. How about a weekly FE car for those who care about collecting those?

    I agree, but it appears the only thing they're doing is the serial numbering for 'uniqueness'. I sold 3 of the cars I bought at the get go, all for a marginal profit. And when I say marginal, I mean about 10-20,000 CR. Even if you put in some upgrades and slap on a paint scheme, You can't get much back for your effort. If someone is willing to pay 10 million for a FE car, then why can't I sell a serial numbered car under 100 for more than a couple thousand dollar profit? It's ONLY in-game Credits, it's not like I can sink a whole countries economy!

    To be honest, since the change was announced I was wondering what they'd even do with the specialty dealership anymore. I was thinking that they'd also add the FE cars to it, but it doesn't seem to look like they will.

    Time for a price comparison, specialty dealer vs. autoshow:

    2008 Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR - 225,250/265,000
    2002 Ferrari 575M Maranello - 369,750/435,000
    2005 Honda NSX-R - 191,250/225,000
    2004 Porsche 911 GT3 - 178,500/210,000

    So the specialty dealer is a way to save 15% off the regular price in the autoshow.

    Picked up #5 for the Datsun. Are people actually willing to buy low numbered cars?

    Yes, absolutely! I have been doing this for the last few months. People will pay the Maximum and end the auction for a low numbered car. Unfortunately, you can't raise the price too much. If you add upgrades, it will allow a certain amount above the value of the car. In most cases, you can get a 20-30K profit, more if the car is expensive. But, in your case, a #5, you should be able to make $100,000 or more. So I could make just as much as you if I sold my #59 Datsun. I don't think that is fair. But, to answer your question yes, they ARE willing to buy low numbered vehicles, and when I say low numbered I mean #1-#500

    Here's a thought I've been having; if Turn 10 have openly admitted that they plan to support Forza 7 for a long while, and Playground are saying the same regarding Horizon 4, I honestly wonder if they'll implement a "backwards-port" feature. What I mean by that is, a car introduced/reintroduced in Forza Horizon 4, such as the Ford GT40 MkI or the TVR Cerbera Speed 12 could be ported to Forza 7 via the Specialty Dealer. It'd be a great way to not only tie the two games together, but also give fans of each some well-deserved love. I know that there are folks who don't care for Horizon, same goes for Motorsport. Imagine logging in on a Tuesday on Forza 7 and seeing cars from Horizon 4 in the Specialty Dealer. I for one would LOVE to race the GT40 MkI against the other Prototype Endurance Racers division cars. As it stands, the Specialty Dealer literally has NOTHING going for it aside for the collectors wanting to score low-numbered cars. Porting Horizon 4 cars into Motorsport 7 would definitely revive a feature that has so much undiscovered potential. Just food for thought. :tup:
