Well this was found out, accedently by me and a few of the guys from the halo2 clan, media gamers.

So, i thourht it would be good to stick one of the new cars on, and the host car lock on, one dude in my party didnt have the cars, we did the race, he raced the new car, and rember, he hasnt baught any of them. After we used about half the cars, we decided to call it a day. The guy that hasnt baught them yet, got those cars that we raced, no other, he can now use the cars, just like anyone elce who has payed for them.

So basicly, MS are stupid, and he got half of the cars, free.

Not sure if you can say MS has really put its foot in it this time, because its obviously a simple mistake, where you can pretty much get all the cars for free if you have one friend... And isnt it the guys who made PGR3 not MS?

i just tried it. made a room with host lock car on. picked on of the new cars. raced. and my friend didnt get the car when he tried to make his own room. it wasnt on the list. so most likely this is BS or I'm doing something wrong.

Probably the worst topic title i've ever seen, other than 'HELP?!'

I didn't know the new cars were out? Im in Aus with my profile set to that, i'll have to check it out, and if not, i'll make a US silver account!

Also, i have the downloads here. I heard from sources that are high up that there is a whole new CITY coming too, now thats a bonus!

I think you have to have at least downloaded the free car.

when you download just one of the cars it actually downloads all of them but only allows access to one of them.

So if you haven't downloaded the free car then it will tell you that you don't have the content.

if you have the free car the code for all of them should be on your console and you should be able to SEE other people using that car online (or race as it if the host has car lock on)...

Knowing that maybe someone should see if you can get the car in career mode..

Not sure if this pertains to the topic, but awhile back I dl some of the new cars individually that I liked. When I got back to my garage I had several others that I didnt dl in my garage for free. Somehow they were unlocked and given to me by mistake.
