The dealerships were sort of already in the game and if you drove around enough, you would have found them already.

The new ones are highlighted and make it easy to buy the cars

I'm $20 lighter. Glad I bought it. Having a hoot driving from dealer to dealer and testing the new stuff. Bought a couple already.

This game is so kick ass still.

i must agree, excellent game, when you get the chance, do the around the island race, it was called something like Million Dollar race or something like close to that.

Yea, there is actually 2 races around the island. The other one has a lot more time to beat it, but doesn't give nearly as much cash.

EDIT: Just remembering something big when talking about burnout paradise.

Make sure you make a backup of your savegame, as this game has corrupted them many times in the past.

To do this just goto the My documents folder and make a copy of the "Test Drive Unlimited" folder.

I think I have more fun just driving around the island than competing in races honestly

And if you meet up with some other folks and just go for a spin, that's pretty neat

I've been having connection issues lately. Either the game won't let me connect with my online profile at all or I get dropped during the middle of driving around.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but if you start the game with an online profile, there is no way to use that profile unless the Gamespy servers allow you to connect, true?

That's correct. So if you want to play an offline account, you lose all of your savegame data.

Mmmm...bit of a bad design decision there. It's rather craptastic playing offline with the rental car when I know I have 3million in my other profile just sitting there.

There's confirmed news from a french site or whatever that TDU2 is in development. So it's happening just whenever it comes out, is yet to be determined.
