OK, I may just be dumb, but after I loaded up FM4 and transferred my profile over from FM3, it also said that it brought of 53,000cr to help me get started. So why is my in-game bank account empty? 0cr.


Also, I got a code for the BMW 1M, I thought we got to use it immediately, according to Best Buy's website. However its not in my garage, its in the car dealer for 43,000cr. Thats not "immediately" in my book.


What gives???

Not sure why you have 0cr but as for your PO car. It is immediately usable in that you have access to buy it at level 1 as opposed to having to wait for some later level to unlock it for purchase. All Forza DLC cars though have required in-game credits to purchase.

Did you check your Message Center when it prompted you during the import? Your credits are in a message there. If you missed it, back out to the menu to the screen that says Play Career, Community, Autovista, etc. Choose Community and then the Message Center.

I don't think you have to unlock cars at all. Pretty sure they're all unlocked and the only requirement is having enough money.

I was using unlocking as an example. Like in some NFS games they lock cars until you make enough progress in the game even if you have enough money.

Someone who has this already might be able to answer this - can you import more then once? Like if i import F3 today to F4 and then play some more F3 and level up to a point where i would get another bonus, can i import again?

It is my understand that the import can be done only once which is after the first race.

The only time you can import your profile is after the first race. If you want to import, you will have to delete your game progress and complete the first race again.

If there was supposed to be a ? at the end of that, then its the very first race in the game with the Ferrari 458.
