Default NFS: MW add on cars w/ instalation programs

some cars that i have downloaded wont work when i try to install them because they have a instalation program.
I have the shopspezial installed on my gamesave.
However I don't know the problem. Does it have somthing to do with me running windows vista instead of windows xp?
Can someone help me?

P.S. here is an example of a car I mean just click on the link.

Won't work when installed? What does that mean? As far as I know all installers automatically detect NFSMW paths from registry and install where necessary. I've been playing NFSMW and NFSC under Vista for over 4 months and it doesn't really matter what system you're running it on.
The link redirects to installer download. Someone was dumb enough to remove extension. Rename NFSMW [DLed file] to NFSMW.exe and that will fix the problem.

I DLed it, renamed it and it worked fine. Installer was OK.
I can upload the working zipped version on rapidshare if you really want that particular car.

Not really sure what you mean. I thought that installer works flawlessly. What didn't install properly? Mod car? You can always select any folder during installation [eg desktop] and move the created ADDONS folder to your NFS MW directory. When asked whether to overwrite files click yes to all.
Also you might be trying to install a car that isn't there. Meaning you're installing mod car for demo version of the game. It's not likely. But check it out.
