I’ve had success with contacting someone from Playground Games who said they’d look into it and get back to me. Will post my findings

hmmmm the list of people having achieved this does show quite a few people for the last few days and weeks!?
Is the list bugged or am I missing something?

I’ve been keeping tabs on the list, everyone who has achieved it this week has played the game before June 2018, when it seems something went wrong with the server. It seems that new people who have started it since then have been unable to obtain it. If you played the game before then, uploaded a design/vinyl and have had someone download it, likely when you login you’ll get the achievement. If you’re just starting the game now, you’ll likely not be able to get it. If that’s not the case, and you’re able to get it, please let us know the steps you took so that others can go ahead and get it as well.

It could be, I think the achievement is unlocked when retrieving the message that the car has sold, still the number of people having received this since June seems high for such a case, seems unlikely to me that so many people would only look at the messages whether the car has sold months later.

Yes, that’s my understanding, that the achievement pops when you read the message. If all the steps hadn’t happened for you, then I’m afraid you’re out of luck as it seems something has broken on the server since about June. Everyone I asked on the list of recent winners (~dozen people) says the same thing, that they had uploaded a design ages ago, left the game for awhile and then read their messages when they came back to it and the achievement popped. When I try to download a friend’s design, I get an error message and it fails when trying to complete. I think it has to do with the transfer of funds, but that is just a guess as to the underlying problem. Any other theories you have are welcome. Has anyone been able to download your design?

No I don't even have friends that have that game, maybe I should add someone from in here.
I just tried the search, looking for a design using the gamertag (using one of the tags posted under the comments below the solution for this achievement) on dozens of occasions over the last few weeks and that hasn't worked, not even once.

I’ve had no luck with the PGG chap on TA but he referred me to their community manager on twitter who he said we should contact. I don’t have twitter personally but if anyone does send me a PM and I’ll shoot you his twitter.

Hey Dan,

I also don't use twitter... I reached out to a Forza Support person who has been helpful in the Rewards thread on the forums regarding our issue. Will update if I hear back.

Just tried it again out of chance and I’m now getting a message saying I’ve triggered anti cheat mechanisms and have been banned?!

Heh, Bloomy from CAG posted on the Forza Forum (same thread as linked above) that he had that same problem, I suspect it's related to whatever is going on with the storefront and will be fixed.
