What the....!

I know that the Vectra was not "meant" to be released in the first place... but they changed that later one it was out and about... Why do they not list it anywhere as an available car in GTR Evo, and why didn't they correct their code to allow skins?!?! I was able to mod it to get skins working in a week. This from someone that knew nothing about modding/editting/skinning...

my 2 cents ....

I have to agree with you,this new release of Evo would have been a good opportunity to tidy up that whole Vectra/Crowne Plaza add on shambles,i was really expecting them to get updated via steam directly to my Race07 install,not the demo caper.....

Same here.
I had been hoping the Vectra, and ability to skin it directly, would have been included.
Maybe they they don't intend to make it available with the main package, or are they waiting for STCC (or maybe later a BTCC??)

interestingly, a BTCC add-on was meant to be release before the STCC, but I guess not now....

It's just a shame that there are only the Audi & Mercedes in DTM now

I remember the good old days when you had the Alfa's and a few other's i cant remember if there where but sure remember the orange Alfa off Christian Albers

Not sure why i remember him though LOL
