Thinking of buying F:H2, but need clarity on what I'm actually getting

OK, so here goes.

At his juncture, I do not have Horizon 2, but will be ordering it. Considering that Ultimate Edition has just been made available, it seems like the right choice.

HOWEVER

Can anybody shed some light on what I’d actually be getting? What confuses me is that in the Xbox store, the description of the Ultimate Edition mentions six car packs: MX-5, 10 year, Rockstar, NAPA, Falken, Mobil 1. That’s fine, but it also mentions that I get access to the Car Pass; the trouble I have, is understanding what the car pass includes. On this thread, it mentions that the Car Pass includes Mobil 1, Falken, NAPA, G-Shock, Top Gear, and Rockstar.

What’s strange is that as you can see, the Car Pass there appears to include some of the packs that are labelled as included with the Ultimate Bundle, and some that aren’t. So it doesn’t line-up, if you catch my drift. Further, some of the DLC isn’t mentioned: Alpinestars, Duracell, and IGN are nowhere to be found, or are they included with the Car Pass that comes with the Ultimate Edition?

So confused, and I hope my message isn’t too confusing to the people here.

Thanks in advance.

The Car Pass includes the Mobil/Falken/NAPA/G-Shock/Top Gear/Rockstar packs. It also includes the Noble M600, which is why they spell out each item separately.
If you bought each item separately you’d be paying $25 for the Car Pass + $20 for VIP + $50 for the game = $95. The Ultimate bundle provides a $5 discount.

Thanks, folks.

So I’m still on the hook for the Duracell/IGN/Alpinestars pack, unless I PO FM6 Ultimate, right? At which point, it seems I’ll only have to pay for the IGN pack. Oh, and the FnF one, but that’s a different story.
