    well i guess the title says enough, yesterday i bought a skin and was not entirely convinced by it when used it, ok it was 0.29€ but still, this isn't the first time that happen and would be nice to have a way to test skins in advance as we do for cars...

    You can test liveries by using the AI selector. Just set up a practice session and add AI cars using the liveries you want to see. You can look at those AI cars in the race monitor then.

    what would be different, if you could pick any skin vs seeing ai using it?

    It would be a straightforward and thus user-friendly feature.

    Right now, in order to view a livery, you need to:
    1) know that AI selector feature exists;
    2) know that you can select cars you don't own;
    3) have a hunch that you can use it, in combination with a replay feature, to view liveries you don't own.

    This has an advantage when you want to view many liveries at once, but the main problem is that it's not obvious at all.

    exactly that, as i had to come in here to discover the thing, a livery selection in store would be much more obvious...

    Im confused theres and image of the livery in the store , one livery doesnt drive any different to another
    And loading up a grid with the ai of that car with the skins is no different than driving it , your still going to have to go freecam on it

    yes of course, but it's not obvious, that's the point, if it was obvious i wouldn't be asking here (as probably other millions people before)
