What exactly is being imported from Forza 3? Just profile and money earned or are cars able to be imported as well?

You can check what is imported here: http://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/underthehood2/

Some cars are imported (check the lists) and some credits depending on which level you are.

As mentioned in the UTH2 those cars are for import.

For paint import it is VINYLS Only!

BTW - To those who want a Unicorn Try http://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/preorder_incentives_program/ to get a unicorn.

ONLY TURN 10 CAN GIVE OUT UNICORNS!!!!!!

If you have a unicorn in your garage They CANNOT Be gifted/auctioned but can be sold to the game for 1,000cr.

I'm wondering how good the quality of the vinyl groups will be, not that any of mine were works of art. I'm thinking i might just reproduce my favourite ones in Forza 4, they might end up looking better?

That was a joke as this has been mentioned tons of times over the last two years...

If you import your cars, in FM4, you will receive either the FM4 version of that car, or the vehicle most similar to the vehicle from FM3. (For example, perhaps a 2010 BMW M3, rather than a 2008 BMW M3)

There is no car import in FM4. There are 9 reward cars you get a FM4 version of if they are in your FM3 garage.

You also get a car for Driver Level milestones you reached in FM3.

Check the Unicorn Cars Question thread...
There are multiple posts about getting a free unicorn (Spirit R RX-7) just by preordering the game! :D

I'm pleased to read that the information is read from your profile and not from a game save as I have a new console and my game saves went with my old console.

I think you may be confused. It is read from your FM3 profile, not your GamerTag profile. There has to be FM3 data for FM4 to know what you had in your Garage and what level you achieved. That info is not stored in your GT.

ahh, right you are buddy.

I had it in my head that I would see which achievements I had, sounds dumb when I give it some though now. Back to square one for me then.

Does anybody know if you can import your data from FM3 again if you delete your FM4 save file?

I think you can. Best way to find out would be to move your save to another storage medium. Then try again. That way if it's not possible you haven't lost your current progress.

What would be awesome is for FM4 to be able to detect if you earned new cars or leveled up in FM3.

So how do you get the 2002 RX-7? I don't have it in FM3 so does that mean I can't get it in FM4? I pre-ordered the game though.

The RX-7 gets gifted to you in FM3 message center so you need FM3 to save it to your FM3 profile and import the profile to FM4

Edit: Forgot to add that in order for Turn10 to give it to you, you need to send them a email with your preorder receipt and your gamertag as subject

I didn't get the message on FM3, did I have to pre-order FM3 to get it or what? I really hope there is another way to get it because I love that car.

That's a pretty lame "secret" car. Anybody can buy one for $12k.

I've heard it's a Bentley 1931.

Is there a way to Import Forza 3 Data later in the game ? I didn't know that there is a forza3 import achievement. My Save from Forza3 was on another Harddrive :/ ...

Ps: Got the Achievement ;)

Just a quick info for those who may are in the same situation I was. To import your FM3 Save you have to have at least a Level 1 Profile there. In my case I just realised my old Level 50 FM3 Save was on my old HDD and therefore I created a new one to get that pre-order Unicorn but I didn't get an option in FM4 to import the FM3 Save since that unicorn profile was Level 0. So just make sure you have at least a Level 1 FM3 Save.

Well I imported and got 60,000 credits, considering I had well in excess of this is this maybe a cap to stop the economy going crazy? I also got the list of cars featured elsewhere on this site for having a level 50 account, Focus RS etc.

The point is to give you enough money to buy some slower cars that you like, not to give you enough to buy every car right out of the gate.
