Hello,

I recently started playing Forza Motorsport 4 again and discovered that the DLC is no longer available due to licences expiring with the car manufacturers.
However, I happened to discover that I did download almost all the free cars from all the packages. For the people who don't know, Forza released a number of DLC car packs with each pack containing 10 cars, 1 of each pack being a freebee. If you have previously downloaded the freebee, the complete pack is on your HDD. You can see which car packs you have previously downloaded in your download history on your Xbox 360, and re-download them if need be. The reason you won't be able to download the car packs anymore is because Turn 10 thought it was a brilliant idea to have an ingame marketplace, where you'd need to go and redeem the car(s) even AFTER you had purchased it on the internet, because the DLC code you bought online simply reduced the price of the ingame marketplace car packs to 0(free).
Since Turn 10 removed all the car packs from their own ingame marketplace, even if you are in the possession of a working code, there is no way to redeem the cars UNLESS you have the car packs already on your harddrive AND downloaded the free car previously, although, that is the current theory.
Now this is where it gets interesting because I have found that the season pass is still available on the Canadian Microsoft store, including the Porche Expansion Pack. You know whats fun about the Porche Expansion Pack? It doesn't require the ingame marketplace! So you can safely purchase it from the Microsoft store and it will download the 30 Porsche cars to your harddrive. Furthermore, I took the risk and tested it and it worked, so if you have any of the yellow marked free cars from the packs below you will unlock these with buying the Season Pass.

Because the packs can be transfered from your Xbox to someone elses, using a USB stick/drive, you could potentially get all the Season Pass Car Packs if you know someone who has all or some of them, I'm not sure if it works but we could try. I have all the Season Pass Car Packs except the Alpinestars Car Pack. So, this is what I'm going to do, if someone here on this forum uploads the Alpinestars Car Pack from their Xbox to the internet(dropbox, wetransfer etc) I will personally upload every Car Pack I have in my possession too.

Fair deal? Thought so.

So I haven't downloaded the free car from the Alpinestars Car Pack, if this happens to work when I copy it to my Xbox 360 HDD, then we can safely assume that you only need the car pack on your HDD and a Season Pass Code to unlock it.


Pro tip:Check all Xbox 360 accounts that may have played Forza Motorsport 4 on your console, because in my case the packs weren't visible under my account but my brother did download the Car Packs, so they were only viewable in his download history. So that was a pleasant suprise to see that I could still get the cars.

Clickable titles below:

BMW M5 (free)

This Pack comes pre-installed on your Forza Motorsport 4 Disc. So even if you haven't downloaded anything, this is still available if you buy the Season Pass from the Canadian Microsoft Store

. Speed Car Pack (free with SP)

This is still available if you buy the Season Pass from the Canadian Microsoft Store AND have the free car from this car pack, if so, it will work 100%. Maybe even works if you have the car pack on your HDD without having previously downloaded the free car?

. IGN Car Pack (free with SP)

This is still available if you buy the Season Pass from the Canadian Microsoft Store AND have the free car from this car pack, if so, it will work 100%. Maybe even works if you have the car pack on your HDD without having previously downloaded the free car?
