It seems that EA finally gave us a real gift, a free 959
if you want it just use the code EUBA-XJ23-R3MM-UEN9 on the link: http://world.needforspeed.com/codes/redeem

After you reedem it, it'll be on Gifts to be reedemed. but you can get it on the Car Dealer for 0 boost.

It says its a rental but the car is actually a keeper. you can re paint and all that.

so do we really need to redeem the gift? or just go straight to the lot and purchase it?

It seems that its working. Though we might get *****slapped by EA soon and lose the 959, just like what happened with the Cop Murcielago where it was sold for 0 boost for some time due to a bug/someone's intentional sabotage/mistake. In the end, cars were taken away, those who took advantage got 1000 speedboost and a couple of people who reported it got some other goodies.

It would be fun, however, if we got to keep it :P

Its because you are late

it was a bug that EA fixed... i mean it wasnt suposed to be a keeper. but they did by mistake, still some people had luck and got em as a keeper.

Because thats how stuff goes on EA:

Dev #1: Oh look here, theres a big problem with the game sync
Dev #2: Whatever, we fix it next month or even later
Dev #1: Wait a second... some people are getting the Porsche 959 for free.
Dev #2: WHAT?!?! Shut the servers down now. we cant let this guys getting free shit over here...

If you dont get it yet i'll try to explain with other words. Fixes only come if they have something related with boost stuff.

This. They took down the forum thread on it a couple of hours before they took down the code itself.

We'll just have to see if they let us keep the cars. I reckon it's different from the cop Murc situation in a couple of ways:
- It was advertised as a 1 day rental, it's a honest mistake at their end.
- One time redeemable, not something that can be bought over and over.
- The cop Murc can only be bought with Boost, which made the bug abuse at that time like stealing. The 959 can be bought with in-game cash, most of us would get it with in-game cash eventually anyway.

Will they take the car away from those who redeemed the code? I doubt it but we'll just have to see.

I was one of the lucky ones to redeem the code on time. The car is excellet considering it doesn't have to be bought with Boost, but the Murc and Z4 GT3 still beat it.

I checked around the official World forums, and the same user that posted the code in the now deleted thread, posted in another that he got info from Jussi(one of moderators) that those who got lucky(got a permanent one) will keep it. How true it is, i don't know. If they let it slide - cool, i got a free 959. If not...i'll just farm a couple days more and get one anyway via IGC. Either way, they won't make money here.

Funny thing, actually. I read over here the title "free 959", then read at the EA page one day free rental, so I thougt I might try it, because the 959 is such an awesome car. When I redeemed the code, and went ingame, I didnt really pay attention to the button, clickend and read "You bought the Porsche 959" or something like that - big suprise for me. Then I checked that and figured that I actually had bought it and could repaint it etc. I hope those people who got it may keep it, because that just brought the fun in World back for me :)
