I usually go grab all specialty dealer cars that give me any little boost to collector score. When I buy one, I exit out of dealer and go to garage. Buying the car puts me in the car, so the garage takes me to that cars spot and I'll go to the lower value car and dump it.

Bought the eagle today, I think it was a boost of about +5 collector score. Saw the car in the background after purchase, dealer showed I'd bought it. Went to my garage and instead of it opening to the eagle(there's only one eagle car in the game), it opens to Abarth.

I scrolled to eagle and there's only one car there and it's my original eagle with the lower value collector score. Took a screenshot of garage showing lower value eagle, and one of the dealer showing purchased. No big deal, just mentioning it. All other cars were in garage as expected.

Even after you restarted the game (or better yet a hard reset if on Xbox)?
This happened to me twice, but the cars were in my garage after restarting the game.

I think the discount, 15%, is too small. You can often search for the same cars in auction for a much deeper price cut.

That is a lot of effort to find cars in the auction house that are the same ones that have a higher collector score that can be found in the specialty dealer. The specialty dealer cars have a higher collector score than the standard cars typically found in the auction house. Not saying it isn't possible to do as you said or that what you said isn't a better idea - but....with the current search features it is kinda time consuming to find people auctioning the specialty dealer cars for less than what is being sold in the specialty dealer.

Don't know, figured I check next time. It wasn't that important.

Any suggestions for a fix - or will it cure itself if left? - for a glitch on a purchase of one of this week's SD cars??

I always swap my existing car for an SD one to improve my collection score. Worked fine (as usual) for three cars, but glitch with the last of the four I bought, the Audi ...

Having sold my existing car to the game for half price, I bought the SD version ... cash went down, collector score went up, I could use Forzavista to see the car from the home screen ... but it never appeared in my garage collection??? So cannot now select or drive it?

The SD entry is greyed-out, saying I cannot buy another one as I have already bought one; the car collection pages show that I have one; and if I try and buy another from the normal screen, I see the message that I won't get any more collector points as I already have one.

But ... still doesn't appear (re-appear) in my garage.

I tried closing the game down, and re-starting my machine, but no avail.

I even bought another, non-SD, copy to see if that arriving in my garage would make both appear ... but no, I can just see that new (third ...) car with its normal collector score showing, not the SD-bought one ... though my total collector score still includes the boost for the SD-copy that I did (part!) buy ...

Any ideas to make it appear??

Sorry, i can't help. The only thing i can say is, that i am having the same problem. I've bought the Audi, but it did not appear in my garage. The difference is, that i did not sell the "normal" version of the Audi. I am not 100% sure but i think that the missing car even counts towards the total number of cars owned (xxx/900), but i could be wrong.

I decided to leave the Specialty Dealer alone as I have all the cars, I'm hoping Turn 10 includes a great car or two in upcoming monthly updates .....

Thanks for commenting.

As we've both had problems with the Audi, perhaps it's a common issue with that SD car status, and T10 will fix it .... perhaps!

Not a massive issue I guess, as I have and can drive my "extra" copy anyway ... but it does still bug me!
