They did, outside the US and Canada. We can't download it from the US or Canada sites, but the majority of the rest of the world can. We were not being targeted by the company who is making the real version of that car, so we aren't supposed to get the sim version. Good thing EA makes it easy to get around this.

Its just decorative. There are a lot of people on the BBS mad that it doesn't at least have parking spots on it.

For the Dr. Pepper Codes, I joined this website http://www.listia.com/signup/79525 - they give you "points" just for signing up - which you then use to bid on things - like the Dr. Pepper codes. I got 4 codes from there without spending a penny. (I hope it was okay to put that link here - I don't drink Dr. Pepper and I found this a good way to get the codes without spending money).

Thanks for the tip, Daelda! I'm awaiting my code now. Got most of the objects when they were free at the store, but I don't recall the car ever being up for grabs.

Glad I could help! I got all 10 Dr. Pepper items - and didn't buy a single Dr. Pepper. I seem to have missed out on several of the "Free" Items (My computer went down for 3 months), so I'm a little bit of a sad panda ...but I am VERY glad for the tips in this thread - 'cuz I got at least 6 other items that I never knew about! :D

New freebie: Lucky Duckie top, adult male.

(Sometimes, free is just a 4-letter word. But so is duck.)

Apparently there is also a freebie rubber ducky top for girls (child), but it can only be accessed via the the in-game store button (no link for this)

Not really sure if it is fully up yet, since none of the screenshots work, but later today there will be a new free set in the store called "Goal!" Surprising how large of a set it is being free, 18 items. We just have to see what really those 18 items are. But if you can't guess, the set has to do with The World Cup. The link is here. There are also three new pay sets, "It's Game Time" which is more sports stuff, "Create your own sports cave or turn your entire home into a mini stadium!" And there is also "Beach Bumminí" which looks like it will be summer clothes, and "Island Villa."

Edit: All the sets are up on the site now.

And a note about the free set, it says there are 18 items, 8 shirts for male, 8 for female, and then 2 pairs of shorts. That isn't all that true. I haven't checked for males yet, but I assume it is the same as females, but there are 32 shirts, one for each of the 32 teams in the World Cup.

I'm really happy with that. It saves me time and I don't have to wade through the whole store looking for freebies.

Thanks to all of you for sharing your links, I think it's awful that they put out free stuff then pull it. I tried to find a link to a freebie Banquett Fan I downloaded some time ago but it's no longer available. Thanks again!

Yeah, ami, I missed that fan and have been searching for a link ever since.
Moeppl, I can't find the "gifts" section. Is it still there?
Does anyone know where I can get the Prius. The one that was free with the original game. It's on my "purchase list" but the link doesn't work.
Thanks!!
