Those sure do look like Superfast tail lights. Is there a newer successor? Monza SP?

Forza junkie since FM2. Horizons are the break I need from the track. 🏁🏁

FH4 and I have a volatile love/hate relationship 😑

Hopefully FH5 will treat me better 😬😬

Doesn't look like a 812 rear to me. I've seen a Singer Porsche 911 DLS being mentionend and the shown tail lights seem to fit.

1.8gb update just now on X1X.

I dont remember hearing anything about a new update and its the same size as the monthly ones. Maybe because holidays coming up?

I suppose it has something to do with the very early Forza Monthly (this Thursday) with a picture of rear lights of Singer Porsche 911...

2 good additions, Merc in particular looks very interesting.

I think we went past the need for more 911's a long time ago though.

Not really, before PC and console players were mixed, buying a console was the way to get the best possible experience running a xbox game online. Now that you can use a PC to join same online games, best experience possible is on PC. Nevertheless, console has this thing that it fits easier in living room. As I already have a 1X running on internal SSD, I will stick to it for the time I play FH4

Sure, but MS missed big opportunity with older Horizons. It would be nice to have all Horizons in at least 60 FPS.

Vinyl HUB has been changed to a single car that you are sitting in. It is another update that needs putting back to how it was before.

Update is bugged.
Hangs slightly when going to 'my designs'.
Also, when you try to view your shared designs in the creative hub, it only shows the design for the car you are driving if it is your design.
If you are driving a car without your design, then it doesn't show any designs.

That Singer DLS costs $1.8 million is that true?

That's its value. Many recent content update cars have had a value of $250,000 as the 850CSI does, but they've all been free to collect from Festival Playlist, Forzathon Shop, etc.

Nope, we are almost at the middle of Series 28,


Smh that catches my eye, Another Series posted on top of another one that isn't at it's last season...

Means to me that they must be probably planning something big... I'll be very interested in that ! At least i hope for it.

Don't think so, the quote from the original post says:

"It's true! Series 29 dropped a little early. This is related to having the optimized version of Forza Horizon 4 ready for Xbox Series X|S players."

So nothing other than get us out the way quick! :-D
