Once you get your bearings, there's also the weekly Forzathon events, they refresh every Thursday afternoon, to win less common cars that aren't on sale in the autoshow, wheelspins that give free cars and credits as prizes, etc. Most of these don't involve/require competitive online racing. I'd suggest adding a tune to your car, in the correct car category (i.e. A, B, S1, etc), to improve its driving performance before commencing these - the 'stock' versions of each car aren't great. Search for tunes from the garage. Check out waznewz on youtube - he uploads a video, suggests a car, and creates a tune to go with it, for every single weekly event Thursday evenings.
If it’s not obvious, the arrows on the road directing you are blue if your speed is ok, and go amber/red if you’re going too fast. I love the way they dynamically adjust as you hit the brakes!
I'm going to throw some time at it today, first impressions are v good indeed
Ahh I was stuck for ages like you, I think I figured it out by setting a waypoint/marker on the map onto one of the two destinations, if you know what I mean? You go to festival main area, bring up the map and move the cursor over the next bit it tells you to goto and click on it and it should bring up arrows showing you where to go or something like that, hopefully someone else can explain it a bit better its been ages ago since I did it. There is a beginners guide on forza 4 on Youtube somewhere and you can just copy off them if you can find that video. Edit: Try this guys video, i just pulled it from my history of lots of videos, hopefully its the right one if not I apologise, you don’t even need to watch the full video if you don’t want to, once you get the idea how to play it should set you up.
I’m in the same boat (car) having just got an XSX and Game Pass. FH4 is just a little different in that it has the Festival site as a base and then you drive around to events. I am early game, and just got given the keys to a house for free..... which is where you can change your character’s appearance. TBH, I just like the fact that it’s in the UK and everyone drives on the left!

Sorted, thanks. I had to redeem the code from the xcloud app with the online account, and then manually find the cars for free in the game garage. Obviously!
I can't remember now it's been that long but if it's a code you need to redeem it. The cars won't be in your garage until you claim them for free in the autoshow where you go to buy cars. When you claim then from there then they will be available in your garage.
I'm playing on cloud on my phone. I've claimed the perk and it shows me a code, but none of these cars are showing in my garage, nor are they showing as free if I look for them. Any suggestions what I'm doing wrong?
On a separate point. What’s this ‘backstage’ section that’s either just popped up on mine due to doing something or been added in generally. You vote between two cars, and then presumably need to raise ‘passes’ to buy the odd or other two that takes your fancy. I’ve not had a pass yet. Cheer
Yes they appear in ‘all cars’ where you see them for free and claim them there then they appear in ‘my cars’. Thanks for posting claimed mine last night.
Never miss a 'Forza Horizon' deal again!

Forza Horizon 4 Cyberpunk 2077 Car Free @ Xbox
https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/p/forza-horizon-4/9pnqkhfld2wq The car is a Quadra Turbo-R V-TECH
Not free for me, all 7 cars have a price for me :-( Using XBox One.
I'm sure they weren't free - I only noticed them as available for free a couple of weeks ago. Had some free credit from Microsoft rewards, and used it to get the Welcome and 007 packs. Probably a waste of the credit. Used the rest to buy the complete Just Cause 4 in the sale, as the base game isn't on GamePass any more.
How exactly do I access these from starting a new game?
Nor free for me on PC with gamepass, although I just made it to autumn and the 1st race that unlocks the market, so maybe later.
Wish the James Bond cars were free

Forza Horizon 4 bundle help
If I bought & downloaded this on my account... Will this also be available for my younger brother who has a separate Xbox account but he shares my Gamepass ultimate ? Thanks … Read more
so i just did this last night and it is working for me, thank you for the hint. Got it streaming away on the spare laptop for a while. you must've been smashing out hours and hours a day to get that much influence!!!
I'd also suggest creating an account on Mixer, linked to your Xbox live account, and you earn Influence for 'watching' FH4 streams - just leave it running as a tab in the background all day - laptop or phone are fine. Mixer has recently suspended the 24/7 FH4 influence farming streams, however many streamers play for 8-10 hours and sometimes then host another FH4 stream when they finish. Before I even purchased the game I'd obtained 24 million influence via this method, ended up with about 1400 wheelspins as a result.
ah ok i gotcha. Cant wait for summer season this week. im off work on friday so gonna smash it all out then :-D gonna give that Porsche 918 a blast as johnmc suggested above and see if its better than the Apollo IE :-)
Not really - there are quite a few 10m credit cars available. I've got something like 95m credits, but don't really want to spend 10m on cars I don't really want.
I don't use the Mosler for racing since it's X999 tuned and most proper events are S2 or below but it is a beast for the seasonal PR stunts. The Porsche 918 is probably my favourite S2 car for racing as it's a good mix of speed, handling and braking although I do like the Senna for its incredible grip and braking but it loses out in straight line speed.

I checked my local store for this a couple of weeks ago - nothing doing. Even back then they were like hens teeth
Hi @FantasyDeals as there was no stock in your local store we've moved this to Discussions - if any members find stock of this item for this price please post details in thread along with Tesco store location and then report the post and we can review further :)

Most Tesco's only have space on sale for chart games and new releases. If there's no allocated space for it, it'll be stuck in a tray in the back. They'll be forgotten about until it gets the green light to reduce it further. Then the wild goose chase begins (y) A good proportion of stock in their warehouse has no actual space on the shopfloor so can't be sold. Ex employee (lol)
When will Tesco realise is they just bother to display them For 11.50 they would fly off the shelf . Someone in Tesco head office has got a low iq if this is how they sell off old stock
I reckon these are posted by Asda employees having a laugh with their sticker gun
It could’ve been the previously reduced price.

Forza Horizon 4 - The Eliminator - 72 Car Battle Royale
Avaliable to play now if you have Forza Horizon 4. Also works if you have gamepass 72 Car Battle Royale. Something different from the shooters I guess. All-new Battle Royale insp… Read more
Just sounds to me like you're not very good at the game. It's all about luck. You could be racing a much better car and still win because they crash that's the whole fun of it.
From what I've played of it I'm finding it awful, I never liked freeroam rush which often ended up pretty random because it's easy to accidentally slide the car or just catch a tree and that's the entire racing here. It also seems extremely random how lucky you are with cars, the first match I couldn't find any and my rival rammed me of the road which I couldn't recover from but the second I started near a level 8 car which was easy to win in. Well until I was racing a level 4 vehicle I was miles ahead of which then suddenly appeared at the finish line... They seem to have been focused far too much on making it directly like other battle royale games rather than actually making it any fun and the fact all the new achievements are attached to this mode is irritating. It's one of the few games I've bothered to get 100% for (even the season completion achievement) but I really can't be bothered trying to win the eliminator mode.
Definitely looking forward to giving this a try 8)

I WANNA JOIN, i have never played xbox or forza clubs so pls assist
If you play FH4, hes inviting you to join his online ingame club (y)
There was a glitch where you started one of the huge 50 lap main event races with a mate, they immediately quit at the start and you automatically won. It got you about £6m and 50 spins a time (I think I had 134 at one point which were a pain to open!!). I think its been fixed now but they havent corrected accounts, to be fair, its a blessing and a curse as now I have just about everything, the game has little point (y)
Just read the op 4 times and still haven't got a clue what you're on about.
Damn, just saw the post. Sorry been busy! I’ll be joining tomorrow! Cheers for the invite.

I’m on 4K mode. It looks wonderful and I’m not fussed about the lower frame rate.
LG b7. I didn't notice to much difference between the gameplay. The graphics of course don't look as good as quality mode. But I don't mind losing that for the better gameplay 60fps gives me. Little as it is. It's worth it to me.
What tv do you have? i tried performance and after playing in native 4K it looks so downgraded loads of jaggies. I do love me some 60fps tho but for some reason the 30fps mode feels so smooth with the motion blur playground games are incredible
I've gone for performance. 60fps. The gameplay feels better.
