Forza Horizon is due for release on October 23rd, 2012 and you can now pre-order the game through a variety of online and offline retailers. However, before you commit yourself, check out what bonus cars and DLC you can choose from, both for Forza Horizon, and also for Forza Motorsport 4.
In addition, various forums and pre-order customers are sharing new that some retailers are either having difficulty supplying DLC codes (Particularly in the UK), or are stating that you will receive your DLC code for Forza Motorsport 4 content only when you receive your copy of Forza Horizons in October. Which is obviously frustrating a number of customers, particularly as there is a pre-order only rivals event for the FM4 DLC this month (August).
We’ll update this with the latest info from around the internet – if you’ve pre-ordered Forza Horizon, post a comment below, and help others out by sharing which store, country and bonus items you have received or are still waiting for!

Forza Horizon Pre-Orders: Bonus Content:
The first bonus item you should receive for pre-ordering a copy of Forza Horizon from participating retailers is actually for Forza Motorsport 4. It’s a 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 392 with a custom Forza Horizon paintjob designed by the Forza community team, and retailers included in this incentive in the U.S are listed as Amazon and Best Buy. There’s no official list of non-U.S retailers, so make sure you check before pre-ordering in the rest of the world.
The car itself looks pretty good, as long as you like pink.
