Thinking of getting Mine!
An XBO that is and getting back into Forza and probably get Project Cars too.
Still have my Fanatec and Club sport pedals and was reading up on the adapter to use the pedals with the Thrustmaster TX and was looking for advice on the setup.
Is the Wheel any good and is it worth me getting all this new kit at the tune of about 650
I could go down the PS4 route For Project cars and stick with the Fanatec but I have more Racing friends on Xbox if any the old team are still racing.
Would be good to here some reviews and opinions to c if it is worth it cheers

There's a new wheel out too for the more budget conscious. Looks identical barring the colours, but worth reading up on....

It has to have some compromise to the TX, but at a 3rd of the price :-)

It's a bit more than some compromise. Hateful cheap plastic pedals, only 240 degrees of rotation and no force feedback. It'd be a rip off at 40.

You can only access the sharefront
From the car you are in currently. Example, go to paint car. Scroll over to the tab that says find new designs.

It's also worth warning you that at least 80% of the recommended designs will be carbon fibre with garishly coloured wheels, some crappy shiny coloured metallic or a flat colour with some huge in-game manufacturer decals slapped haphazardly on the side.

If you do a search of paints (or indeed tunes), but don't narrow down any of the parameters it will bring up the most recent examples for your car. I'm not saying they will be any better than the recommended, but they will at least be something different.

Helpful tip for when you start out in FM5.

The first 5 races it won't let you quit so you have to go through them before you can start adjusting your controller layout or playing with assists.

But... if you switch the console off after the first race it will go to the standard start screen when you start up Forza again allowing you to change the settings before you continue with the series.

Takes time to get good recommended paints, best thing to do, is once you find a few good ones, like from people like Dan, is to tick the 'follow' option. Then after a while, you'll get good paints on the recommended lists for most cars, instead of the matte carbon crap.
