Well I hope other than those cars they add other cars...

Out of the last set I enjoy driving the X2011 and the CR-Z

The only one I found to be a dissappointment was the prius, never liked them anyway.

I also heard a rumor of wheel options on the standard cars...

Could be true, could be false, dunno.

Maybe if they realize that they can make money from selling these DLCs, we can persuade them to increase staff a bit and work on special packs, like a "classic car pack" (e.g. '65 Mustang, '64 GTO, etc.) or a "convertible sports car pack".
