    Was suprised to find that we have the restricted steering lock on the virtual steering wheel with this car, thought all new cars were coming with the 360dg lock? also when will the rest of the vehicles be updated with the new lock? haven;'t seen anymore that have been updated recently.

    Nice drive shame about not being able to by as a pack, this one skin method is not good.

    So, as a long time user, i have to pay 349 VRP again (no real cockpits i guess).

    I think better to wait until a special sale day vor noobs comes out. It is really anoying to pay on every single pice, and make a summ of about 150 EUR while some noobs now getting everything for 50 EUR. Its a shame, really a shame.

    (no i dont have the premium pack - GTX for eyampla does not matter for me)

    Back in days, the rule was always: If you're too sick to go to school, you're also too sick to play. :)

    Man Junge hör doch endlich mal mit der ewigen, unerträglichen Rumheulerei auf. Wenn 3.5€ dich finanziell so belasten, würde ich mir an deiner Stelle mal eher Gedanken um meine Altersvorsorge als um Rennspiele machen...Du nervst tierisch!

    Yes, if it's not possible to have all TT RS liveries by re-purchasing the Premium Pack, I will stop be considered as a milking cow.

    So, to stay with your metaphor, you would suggest Eisprinzessin to "support" his bar only during a happy hour? (I know we are all customers and no investors - although R3E is still beta.)
    I have to say that I understand Eisprinzessin's point of view as well as I understand yours (@Andi Goodwin).
    But it feels a bit weird for me having paid 130 EUR during the last years whereas newcomers get everything for 50 EUR at the moment. And what about people who bought the Premium Pack last week? Bad luck?
    I don't want to be impolite or unthankful but a small gift like a free skin package for the new Audi TTRS would have been a very nice gesture for all those who have shown interest in the game for several months/years.

    Its not the 3,50 EUR its the system that sucks.

    Yes, and at 23 o'clock a guy comes in and gets 10 drinks for free meanwhile the barceeper makes his holiday an the maldeives from your money. You would look like a dickhead too.

    BEcause of the early users the game is still alive. We have put in our money again and again. And now if anybody comes in he becomes everything for less then the half amount?

    Sorry, i cant get the point.

    Welcome to life. My TV costs less now than what I paid. Same for my graphics card, PS4, camera, whatever. Stuff gets cheaper - do you complain everywhere that new customers nowadays pay less than you did a year ago? For instance - I paid the full price for pCars and bought every single DLC for the full price. And then they release it as a package at a bargain. So what, that's life. Buy it or leave it, but stop the whining.

    Nice car love it, thanks Sector 3! :D

    Now on the whining.....did Audi TT RS come into existence from thin air, like using some magic wand!?

    Or many people actually woke up everyday, went to work and worked many many hours to design the car graphics, liveries, do the sounds, telemetry and all other stuff involved in doing it?

    When you buy your cigarettes you get a discount? How much did you spend on toxic smoke? I don't think you whined too?

    And every time I buy a Beanie boo (she has 25 now o_O) for my daughter I don't get a discount either and they are EUR 8 each.

    You should appreciate the work these people do for our hobby, 349 VRP is freken nothing for all the work they did so that I can spend some relaxing time racing it.

    yep and the first people to buy 4k tv's , top end graphic cards etc etc payed more , prices fall , offers happen etc etc etc ....
    seriously

    sometimes i really do wonder what you guys have wedged in your butt to make you so grumpy for the cost of a beer or two
    i dont agree with how things are priced either but seeing as ive paid 10 times the price you have and im not bitching i cant see what the issue is
    yep it be nice to get a reduction , if so dont be a first adopter wait a while

    Dunno about you guys but I usually get some free snacks when I visit my local watering hole. :)

    That said, cool on the release, know it was anticipated by many. Will probably not be an early adopter myself but we'll see how it goes. Enjoy the green hell VLN enthusiasts.

    I'm not offending, just curious.
    @Georg Ortner , did you mean the new Starter, Pro and Premium Packs here? Well, there's very little benefit to early adopters though.

    I also purchase pretty much everything upon release, inc. todays DLC. I have grabbed the odd bargain in the past but most purchases have been full price. I understand that being an early adopter I have to pay more so I have never complained about it, as it has always been my choice.
    I did email support a year ago and asked the question whether there would be any perks in the future for the main supporters of the game who have contributed from day one. Below is the reply, but I guess nothing has been followed up on as of yet.

    Hello,

    This is definitely something that was, and continues to be, discussed when we discuss these kinds of promotions. I unfortunately do not have anything concrete to share regarding what we are discussing, but you can at least count on the fact that we are considering some different options.

    Best regards,
    Hannes Wallstedt

    Can't be seen from the video, so how is the digital display inside the car? Still the old generic stuff or something new? Thanks.
