Congratulations on your second anniversary.
But to be clear, I'm disappointed in this update and this streaming.
If this was a monthly update I wouldn't have cared for anything. But this is the second anniversary update.
A typical online game developer would have done a much better, bigger update as an anniversary update.

A body kit update that has been delayed for over a year, and a number of unused barns on the map.
I was hoping for a pleasing update like this kind of content.
But there are none of those, and the only new content outside of cars is drag racing multiplayer.
And the new cars, three of which are repurposed Toyotas and Lexuses from FH3, are also new.

Yes, I know it's my fault for expecting too much from them. And I have to take into account that they have just pulled off the daunting task of expanding their garage.
But it's a shame that an update on the anniversary of our second anniversary is no different than a monthly update.

Best thing I saw from scanning the stream was no 50% completion requirements on any season to win the new cars. All 4 are simple 3 race events, 1 each week.

Like 1 month after garage size up, more than a hundred players have already filled it with duplicates. Quite a conclusion for the efficiency of their "Fix" related to car duplicates.

Interesting to see the focus on Eliminator. 4 starts out of 11 about Eliminator, ZERO about online ranked or not. I guess it tells a lot about the priorities.

I will have a look at the Lexus RCF, it was a pretty good S1 on FH3 despite its weight.

I'm sorry. I don't know what you mean by "fix" but I have many cars in different versions bought since the increased garage space. I don't count those as duplicates because in my FH4 world they are different cars after added upgradings like bodykits.
The real fix for duplicates (if you don't want them) was the option to immediately sell. And that one has still to be implemented on some situations.

We seem to be getting only old Toyotas and Lexus' in the game; what about some of Toyota's more recent stock like the Lexus GS F or the Lexus LC Hybrid??!! Too many old Toyotas imo!

After the garage space increase has there been any news in this stream about the increase of ucg? Cause I'm tired of deleting liveries to be able to choose or create new ones...

It speaks volumes about Playground's priorities with this game when the data they show is Eliminator stats rather than pretty much anything else (Online Adventure for example).

Taking into account they haven't updated the Eliminator in months, at this point, Playground is pretty much on autopilot, releasing whatever leftovers they have before T10 finishes the new ForzaTech engine for them to leech.
May the forced induction be with you.

Aw man, this threw me off. I just saw "NEW EXCLUSIVE CAR!" and wasn't paying attention to the actual car. The '96 Impala isn't new.

The Series 27 content update is now available. I've posted a screenshot of the four cars in the first post. The Drag Strip in My Horizon Life has two new Quickchat rewards:
"Drag Run?"
"Let's Settle This at the Drag Run"

The Microsoft Store also has the two DLCs, which are also listed in the Marketplace tab from the in-game pause menu:
$6.99 Forza Horizon 4 Icons Car Pack
$6.99 Forza Horizon 4 High Performance Car Pack

So you stated it, the fix I was referring to the possibility to sell duplicates which they implemented for offline and not for online.

This situation of garage filled mostly comes from wheelspins. I never met anyone after 2K hours FH3/FH4 explaining he went to buy each car one by one from the auto show, never. All I met and discussed about garage, the issue was wheelspin filling garage.
Most games, you have a limited storage for things you collect, slots for weapons etc ... why is it so different with Forza ... it is because Forza is filling your storage on your behalf and not offering you any option to block it or clean the mess.

I have no doubt that the players having filled their 1000 slots are guys playing online and simply got their garage filled with duplicates. Despite the solution was ultimately simple and common sense, we still have this damned non sense.

There seems to be a bug with the new patch, a couple of times now while in free roam, the game seems to think you are in the menu, so it doesn't let you choose any event. Nor can you bring up the menu to even quit the game, so you have to force quit it. The car is still driveable but you can't do anything else.

Since the new patch today, when I come out of the house (Castleview Road) it repeats the sweep-to-car camera view over and over - I can't drive away, I have to enter a menu then back out before I can control the car. Bit weird...

Not just me then, I wasn't sure if I was seeing things earlier. Not Castleview Road though, just the main festival site. I exited the festival garage and the screen went black and then did the camera sweep thing twice. I was going to capture a video clip but I can't make it do it again. Clearly there are a few gremlins lurking in this patch.
