So far it's only the Bit Store vehicles. The ones in-game for scrip are same price.

Almost $25 worth of bits to get all the vehicles if anyone cares to know. :P

The vehicles you get with bits, are they any better then any of the in-game ones, or just different colours?

Can you get the same colour ones from in-game vendors, or this a bit only kind of deal

Meh I have so many in game vehicles, don't see a need to pay money for a slight repaint.

I mean I cant even really tell on those damn shopping cart vehicles anyway.

Maybe if the cash shop vehicles had a colored ground effect it would be worth it...but even half off for a repaint is too much for what you get.

Tell me about. I would want a real world money Hannibal to be able to plow right through a Bulwark, without a so much as a dent to it's shields.

Also agree about the neon light undercarriage. :D

Are the TMW Hannibal VBI 800r's u can buy in the bit shop slower than the 800r's you can get from the in game vendors? The Details screen sure seem to list slower speeds....

They looks just like colour retextures. And you can't tell from stats alone, since there was a bug that shows one set of stats in the store and different ones (in my case lower) when you bought them and check in your inventory. I'm assuming the same thing happens with the bit store.

I assume that's b/c in the shop the bonuses from your runner skill level haven't been applied. they has been applied to the stats on the ones you own.

This would be exciting if the vehicles in the store were interesting or unique.

The Bit ones have unique color/patterns, but statwise dont seem any better.

I bought one from the bit store and it's definitely slower than the vender ones. I can switch between them and there is a definite difference in speed. They are slower.

The ones in the bit store are listed as VBI. The ones in the vender store do not have the VBI in the name. I guess they are different.

One would assume they are adding more to the shop on Tuesday. The current selection is far from exciting.

I got so many vehicles from the game itself: Regular vendors + Special offers + Hidden vendors, that after a while...
I totally forgot that there was a micro store with vehicles in it.

After clicking on the vehicle tab, i saw about 7 of the same vehicles i already have except that, by paying real money, i could have the possibility to get a runner:
Light Orange-Tan-Blue, instead of Dark Green-Tan-Blue...

Hehe, no thanks i'll pass.

This would be great news if the vehicles actually offered some sort of benefit to the paying customer. Changing the colour doesn't justify the cost.

If they were shop only vehicles then people might be interested or if they came with +10 Vehicle Skill Boost Earned. I've got about 5 of those 800's as every now and then they pop up for 500 Scrip at Vendors.

Well that's why I bought one. I was curious if they were the same as the ones you can buy from the venders. I have to say that they aren't. The 800 I got is a lot slower than the ones i have bought from the venders. LIke I said earlier the bit shop ones have the VBI in the name. I don't think they are the same vehicles with repaints....

So no real benefit...as a matter of fact they seem worse :(

Everyone realizes that by pointing out they're not buying them because you've got them from vendors will probably cause their appearance rate in shops to be lowered right? Lol

WAS? It's still there! I bought a new runner at the vendor in Iron Demon Ranch, the stats said it was faster than the one I already had. I plunked down 5.5K scrip for it, but when I equip it I'm shocked to discover that I've been sold a bill of goods. Between the time it was in the shop and when it hit my inventory, it got a lot slower, no better than the one I already had, and the damage stat was less than on the runner I was using.

want to sell bit cars, add in the Hauler, Cerberus or other unique items, dont' sell us repaints. Then again if they offered Hauler and Cerberus as shop exclusive cars, everyone would call it pay 2 win...

I have so many cars in game anyway, no real need to purchase them. Have Red in everything so I'm good. From time to time toss in a pink ride just for the LOL
