11 years now I've been cursing about this. Large parts of the world use KM/H and Horsepower. And it's probably like 5 simple lines of code to change it....

Why when you change to Metric you get kph but its still kw? When you change to English units its hp but than its mph, sucks the lack of option to have kph and hp together

They've had KM/H and kW be in the same setting since the first Forza game.

I'm an Aussie myself and completely agree. Sure, it's our national units, but the majority of those on the web (US, Canada, UK etc) use HP. It'd be a great feature, but I'm not going to die if I don't have it.

they don't use Megawatt because it sounds cooler. They us KW and MW because it just so happens to be a more precise measure of power in fact, this change occurred for the same reason as most countries swapping from MP/H to KM/H. With time BHP and WHP will eventually become obsolete but for the time being we the people, are used to HP (whether it be HP, BHP or WHP) but we will gradually move to the wattage system in our lingo.
