you are going to the end of the list of cars right?
and NOT extracting the .zip file? leave the files in the .zip

It seems TrackMania\Skins\Vehicles\StadiumCar works for some players and not others.
For me it does NOT work and there is no folder for my custom painted cars either.

I installed the cars the same way I did in Sunrise but the only way they will show up is if I rename them as an original skin, SWE, POL, RUS....etc, then they show up.
After that I can paint them then save them no problem.
Would still like to know where my saved cars are saved to.

You are not the only one Mutt107.

It's kinda simple to find your cars, just go and make a custom car in the paint shop. Then saveas and name it "MYCAR". After you do that then go and do a computer search and look for MYCAR.zip That should show you were they put the file. All other custom cars go in that folder :thumbsup:

make sure you downloaded THE CAR itself and not a 2d skin without the model files :(

Yes, and the CarCommon and/or StadiumCar directories below it too.
