About the Profile import in Forza 4

I think this info will be helpful, these are the first details about the Profile import feature for Forza 4.

"Profile import is, among other things, our way of rewarding long-time Forza Motorsport players. How does the system work?

It’s all automatic. After your first race (logged in with the same Xbox Profile you played Forza Motorsport 3 with), you will be asked if you want to import your profile. This will have no effect of your Forza 3 profile. It’s just a read on that profile. The import process looks at several factors and gives a variety of rewards. If you’re connected to the server and your Xbox LIVE account is in good standing, you will be gifted credits based on your level. The car imports do not require connection to LIVE."

"What kind of car rewards are we talking about?

Based on your Forza 3 driver level, you start your Forza 4 garage with these cars. These are player loyalty rewards.
"

"If you have any of the following cars are in your Forza 3 profile’s garage, you start your Forza 4 garage with Forza 4 version of the same car. These cars are community loyalty rewards.

"
- The first 3 cars are from the FM3 VIP Car Pack (800 MSP)
- The following 3 cars are Unicorn car which can only be found on The Auction House or get as a reward for a special event
- Ferrari 458 Italia is found at the Hot Holidays Car Pack (400 MSP)
- Lexus LF-A is found only at the Stig's Garage Car Pack (download code with the Purchase of FM3 Ultimate Collection.

That's epic, thanks for the heads up.

Saves lots of money in-game since I have around 90 cars.

I'm pretty sure I'll be getting everything


I'm finishing up some series I never did before FM4 launches, as I expect there will be something extra for those who completed all series/races with gold.

If you need a cash injection to help you along Zinadine, just ask. Got plenty of spare credits I no longer need with FM4 coming so soon also have a spare Ferrari 250GTO.

Wondering this also..

Maybe I'll wait to import my F3 file until I find out what all I need to get. Unless you'll be able to import more than once.

Not really, the first 3 cars are installed with the UE but they are locked, you have to buy the VIP pack from the live marketplace (800 MSP)

The next 3 following cars are unicorn cars which can only be bought at the auction house or you get any of them as a prize in contests launched by Turn 10 (you need XBOX live gold)

The Ferrari Italia 458 and the Lexus LF-A are ready to be bought and used in the UE and so far there is still no information about which is the secret car.

A very kind fellow gifted me the Lexus LFA, so even though it's locked it should export over to FM4...im waiting on the RX-7 gift for pre-ordering, and tomorrow there should be a turn10 event on FB, and i'll ask for the 69 Camaro SS there....the only unicorn I really want lol

Will anybody who has one of the Unicorn Cars in Forza3 (and still has the game/save) BUT IS NOT getting Forza4 be willing to send me one so I can unlock the Achievement straight away when I start Forza4???

The unicorns are:
2006 Subaru Impreza S204
1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe
2002 Mazda RX-7 Spirit R Type-A

I will of course send it straight back after getting the achievement once Forza4 is released on Oct14th

Please send me a message over LIVE @ IEvil IMonkey

Many Thanks

Secret Car

Well it's the day before release here in the US and I've been doing some research, and it seems like the secret car on the list is the DMC-12 for those of you who are interested. Someone will correct me if I am wrong, but I don't think I am. Wish I were wrong - I would have liked to have seen my 250 TR transfer over! Oh well, looks like I'll probably be buying car tokens for some of the astronomically priced cars.

Once you hit 88mph, you win the race.

Okay I finished my first race, but was not given the option to import. What do I do? I've deleted everything and tried again 5 times now.

So im guessing the secret car is the #92 Letterman Racing M3 GT2... I got to level 50 on f3, and I got every car the guy has in that video. I just wanted to know if there were any more cars. Sweet. Thanks everyone!

Hi,

have a question that hope to get some help...

I have the regular edition of Forza 3... if I buy the DLC VIP Car Pack will I gain VIP status? same as the people that bought the Limited Special Edition?

i ask this because I want to know if doing so, when I start playing Forza 4 will I be gifted those cars considered unicorn and get the respective achievement?

Hope I made myself clear... thanks

Gotta ask, if i have understood right, there are two Nissan Skyline's in FM3 (Can't remember exact name right now), that are counted as unicorn cars in FM4, and will unlock the achievement when imported, right?

Also, can you import whenever you want, or do i have to put my FM4 profile on a memory stick, start a new game on FM4 and import profile, delete new profile and put the old profile back on the HDD?
