You have the ability to play online, but not gift/receive gifts, auction house or paintings/tunes.
Same as clubs and rivals are disabled. But quick matches, private matches, and online joining games work 100%.
Worst part is, my other GT got banned while my main was xbl banned for 2 weeks, and it banned my entire console from those options on Forza. All I can do is play private matches.
