When I want to update the preview CM tells me that the showroom is missing and I can´t find an option to "use custom showroom for previews"

Please make sure that your CM is up to date. Here is a pic that should help you locate the setting(s):

Wow, excellent tip, thank you very much!

I've added it to the instructions, Kudos to you!
Looks really good! Love the white one.
But it takes forever to Update each car.
Is there a "Update all Cars" option?

Thank you!
I honestly have to admit that if there was such an option to update all cars' previews in a single go, I too haven't found it yet.
Did it the 'hard way' myself, updating car by car.
Maybe someone else knows?
Great stuff! Thank you, Sir :)

Awesome, thanks mate! :)
Awesome, thank you, still learning though. Must be me (not this) but is a little fiddly getting the car in place?

Hey Shaun,
I'm not entirely sure I understand what you mean. Once installed (the presets), all you have to do is update the previews of the cars using the preset variant you prefer.
You don't have to do any fiddling whatsoever, the cars should be in the right place from the get-go.
If you're still having trouble please ask away in the support thread!
Thank you, nicely done :)
