Haha, so in this case, i don't believe they are, and, here's Paul himself directly from last weeks Road Book.
As many of you will have already known this week didn’t go entirely to plan. We had originally planned to release the Modern Masters pack however we were unable to do so as we hadn’t received all the necessary permissions to feature one of the cars.
I figure with it being just around the corner I might as well explain a bit about what you can expect next week.

It's not about "before my time". Kadett was simply replaced by a Vectra or Astra, depends how you look at it, just as the Vectra was replaced by the Insignia. In other words, you do have a Kadett, it's nowadays known as Opel/Vauxhall Insignia.
The Vectra, that was preceded by the Cavalier, which became the Vectra & then Insignia (all had nothing to do with the Kadett). 

The Kadett preceded the Vauxhall Viva & Chevette, which were both replaced by the Vauxhall Astra, which was brought to the UK market in 1979.  As I was born in 1979, the Kadett also preceded me, hence it was "Before my Time".

For fear of this turning into another 'Which Impreza' hi-jack, we'll park this one up!! :)

You're looking at the UK, which is Vauxhall and runs on slightly different rules than Opel. What in UK was called already an Vauxhall Astra, was still known as Opel Kadett in rest of Europe. Kadett E was in production till 1991, which is even though I was born in 1992, I saw so many Kadett's it ain't even funny.
The cars in DiRT Rally are Opel's, not Vauxhall's, so let's keep that in mind when discussing cars, because Opel is not a 100% Vauxhall.

In short, this is the Kadett that I know, but those that live in the "Vauxhall" countries will already see it as an Astra ;)

great !!! cant wait to get home to my Sim-PC.
I wonder why there's no MM - Update Info Thread by now.

are you sure guys about DL size ?  6,5 gigabyte ?  seems exaggerated for just a car update...
 
Positive it's 6.5g. It's not just a car pack, there's the V2 handling on some of the car groups that don't have it yet, the core map patch and there'll be others, there always are.

Updating one line in a file that is 65MB will require you to download the entire 65MB's anyway. Cars are most likely about 1GB on their own, so we're getting over 5GB of fixes, updates and new things in general.

Worth noting that a lot of cars have a new livery, like the Delta for example.

Haha and in a typical fashion DiRT Rally update rolls out a day before I'm off on holiday :D :D

Can't wait to hear the feedback on the update and then move onto Gossip on what cars will be rolled out as part of the Winter Wonderland :)

I've just noticed that DiRTy Gossip thread now has over 200 K views! :O That's quite a few... I like it that it's become such an active place on the forum, but at times maybe it would be better if chat about steering wheels or other less Gossipy subject was done somewhere else.

Either way it's November already - perhaps the month of DiRT Rally full release!
Can't believe that back in March we thought we'd have to wait much much longer. So much has happened since then and so much was achieved by the DiRT team. What a great success this has been.

I'm not a betting man, but even I would bet that DiRT Rally v1.5 will come out on consoles in 2016. Gossip.

Shouldn't the Focus 07 have a 5 Speed Sequential box instead of 6 speed? O.o

err... how the hell did you gather nearly 7 Milllions of Credits ?? :o
Ahh, yeah, it's only that much because I just spent on making all my engineers have 1000+ stages on their contracts.



In more serious note, I have versatile setup on my engineers, I don't change the perks every single time I want to upgrade a car. 2 full rally's are usually enough to upgrade any car anyway. And I farmed about 4 million IGC on Pikes Peak, in order to get all the cars. Rest came from getting all championships to Master level and just enjoying the game :P

The DiRT Show gave an answer to a very important question.

We can still have hope for the Quattro E2 appearing in the game :D Though it's definitely not gonna appear with the Winter Wonderland, so n ot in this year then. My guess is march 2016 is when Quattro E2 will descend upon the Group B :D

In other news of the day, we know that there will be snow in the next update xD

PS. The backfire on the Evo is simply brutal. Loving it.
