    The idea here is simple: simply let us all know what car(s) you've brought and leave a few words about your experience with said vehicle(s). Also feel free to do the same for any recent reward vehicle you've gotten.

    I just picked up the Radical SR8 to finish up the Expert Series, and man that thing can haul some serious smoke. It's a bit rabid though and it'll bite back the second you even contemplate manhandling it. It has gobs of grip, but only if you're precise with it. If you're not, well, you will spin, crash, or slide - if not all three of those. I love it.

    The sound is absolutely incredible. Just...just...absolutely incredible.

    Got my Veyron Super Sport, painted it black, put some black wheels on it and took it around Le Sarthe before calling it quits (for an hour or two).

    You mean bought not brought ;)

    Today I purchased the VW Mark II Golf thing but didn't drive it yet. Yesterday I bought the Acura NSX '05 and tuned it for b-series racing. This car handles like a dream. I kill every time I use it. Can't wait for the serves to stay up for more than 5 mins so I can take it online.

    Sentra SER V, for some reason since Forza 2 I love taking the SER to A class making a sort of touring car out of it, great fun to drive as well.

    I didn't buy anything but got to level 47 and chose the Zonda R

    Everything Jeremy Clarkson has said about this car is true, a totally different animal to what we saw in GT5 because this time its actually driveable and puts the power down no problems and the sheer amount of downforce this car has you can actually feel it working in high speed corners!

    I bought a '94 Mustang and a Volvo S60R. The Mustang is a pretty good C-class car, it's pretty tailhappy though. The S60R is predictable and slow (tuned to B and A, got two setups) like most AWD cars.

    Bought an F10 M5 earlier. Can't say I like it that much.

    I just bought an FD3S in preperation for the Mazda-specific events. Tuned it to the top of B-Cllass and am currently working on a semi-decent tune to keep it pointed in the right direction :lol:

    Gotta say, though, it looks great in metallic black with those golden 57 Optimise wheels I put on it. Dunno, the RX-7 just has a very sleek and timeless design. Just added the Forza Aero parts and it looks really, really nice.
     
  12. Ok so not quite today but last night I bought the BMW Z4 GT car - Wow - what a car !!!

    Subaru 2010 Legacy - handles like a boatier Impreza and has no aftermarket aero, so felt like a waste of time and credits. Meh.

    Let's see...

    EB110, Shelby Series 1, a few VW's, a Lambo Murcielago SV (my 200th car), and... a Volvo S60R. Actually using the latter right now to build Affinity, have it slightly tuned taking it around La Sarthe, and it's actually a very nice B-class drive, even if a bit slow. The I5 warble is very nice, worth the price of entry :tup:

    Haven't been able to get to the game in the last couple of days but I noticed that it's harder to come by super expensive cars for 10/20k.
    I'm holding out for an F40 and LFA for super cheap but had to settle for a DeLorean and another Miura.
    With some 400 cars, I'm going to focus on selling off all the miuras/GTOs/SLR SMs.

    Invested in my original Audi Quattro today, what a beautiful peice of machinery. Just sitting there in the cockpit makes me feel giddy with excitement - recreated to so much exacting detail that it takes your breath away. Pulling away and accelerating down to T1 at Silverstone and just listening to that unique engine burble and the grunt after every gear change... the closest I've came to the real thing since I sold mine 3 years ago :D I loved that thing, espically at 5000rpm

    First post.. don't think I'm crazy :)

    Won a Bertone Mantide I think it is a few days ago. I don't really like S class, but it's heaps of fun to drive, and sounds amazing. Smokes AI on the straights but the brakes aren't the best, so watch for divebombers :)

    Bidding on an E 63 AMG for the Merc sedan event. I fancied a break from World Tour and wanted to get my affinity level up to Enthusiast level.

    There's so much to do in Forza 4. So many different ways to enjoy the game. And I still feel like I haven't even scratched the surface yet :D

    I went on a bit of a spending spree today. I've bought all of the following:

    VW Rabbit
    VW Beetle (outfitted with the RSi/Cup Car bits)
    Chevy Z06
    Nissan 350Z (my second one; outfitted with the Nismo/Amuse bits and the appropriate livery)
    Ford Focus ST
    Ford Escort Cosworth
    And several liveries from the Storefront.

    I now sit on 544k. I need more monies.

    Citroën C1, and a few Ferrari's sold shortly after getting the Ferrari collector achievement. I haven't purchased much else today but I'm currently trying to earn enough credits to purchase a Shelby Cobra 427 S/C.

    RIVALS, y0!

    Finally got on and snatched up a #4 chevy monte carlo for 12k. BMW #xx art car for 150k, and a McLaren F1 GT for 30k.
    Auctioned the chevy for 330k, the BMW for 420k and best of all, the F1 GT was worth 2,2x0,000 sitting in my garage so I just sold it to the dealer.

    I got lucky and was able to make two purchases I've wanted to make for quite sometime. I picked up a Pagani Zonda R for 430K along with a Chevrolet #99 Green Earth Team Gunnar Oreca FLM09 for 420K.

    I didn't get to touch the game much today, and am now posting from a train, but I did have two important acquisitions today: a C6-R and a Countach for a grand total of $28k. Can't complain about that!

    I made a mistake in an earlier post about drivetrain swaps: I hadn't done it to a Mini, I had hoped to. Sadly, a smaller version of the WRC car was not to be, so it still puts its power down to the front, with a balanced build up to B500. Its fantastic for the autocross events!

    I'm absolutely surprised with the SSC, XJ220, and Mosler.
    With just camber adjustments and full aero, they are amazing to drive. Not sure if they just fit my style, whatever it is, but I'm loving these cars.
    With the XJ220, you can feel the turbo lag but it doesn't feel like there is no power before the boost kicks in. It's more along the lines of oh crap this has so much power, then the boost kicks in and it's holy **** this has a lot of power.
    They all feel very similar to me. Stable at high speeds, good brakes, very surprising turn in. No over/under steer.

    A Lotus Exige 240. Currently all-black and is A600. It's currently my tag car. Quick in a straight line, stealthy, and good in the corners.

    I've bought a Sesto Elemento... Upgraded it to R3 800 and it didn't work for me, neither with AWD nor RWD. Dopped it to S700, RWD, obviously, but it handled like a turd. So, t's now sitting in my garage as a very expensive photo model.

    I bought a Radical SR8. Never got the chance to sample it in FM3, but I had heard from a few friends it was quite the car.

    And it is. The handling is almost telepathic, certainly one of my 3 favorite cars, too.

    Bought an LP670SV too, but didn't get to drive it yet. Bet it sounds brilliant, though.
