Quote from brandons48 :Dream Car race - Ford GT LM Spec II

Number of cars was either horns or paint, i got matte red and matte pink.

I definately got chrome from the karting events.

I didn't. I golded them all.
I got the highroller trophy when I picked up my LFA in gold-brown colour. Now I'm wonder if I should paint it Le Mans Blue from my 370Z or Matt Black with gold rims - hmmm decisions

Sounds like an angel stock, sounds different with sports exhaust, more throaty, wonder what it sounds like with a race exhaust...
I just read that the LFA comes in matt black from the dealer, doh, didn't notice that while skimming the colours....
I also got some pearl 2 tone weird paint from the FT-86 I won

nice matt green Shelby Cobra

and R8
I did my Veyron in the darker matt green, it looked really sweet.
My new purchase..





Fugly front end.

It's fugly outright. One of those cars I won't buy because it is destined to be a reward at some point.
Quote from jibber :PS3 is dead. Was level 22 (B-Spec level 10), had most of the licenses and special events gold, money, cars... gonna have to start over, brb!!!

Bought a new one. The old one was still running, but refused to read any discs. Found out there was a data transfer option in the menu, copied everything to the new one... works fine again!

We should somehow get a "pool" together to buy this car and share it round.

You didn't really need to buy a new one - I bought a broken fat PS3 from ebay for £60 - not reading disks. All it needs is a new blu-ray laser which cost around £40, then you pull it apart using youtube tutorials and fix it yourself. Much cheaper!

I still have warranty on the old one. I'll get it fixed and sell it online.

Quote from CoolColJ :You can stream music to the PS3, if that's what your asking?

Windows media player can do it from Windows to the PS3. You just browse you music library via remote and stream it

yeah, thats what I meant. I have like 100GB music on a small server, wouldn't want to copy that to the PS3. And most of it is in mp4 or flac, and afaik the PS3 (or GT5) can't open those.

Can GT5 acces that stream?

Don't think GT5, can only music on your HD, and only for race music.
So, what cars do you people found the best in the game, meaning that it feels like they haven't rushed them physics wise... I'm interested in Premium cars only.

...rushed physics wise? They just put the data for all the cars into their physics engine... you don't really believe they fine tuned them, do you?

It just happens to work better with some of the cars...

Cars i've tried so far that are fun to drive:

- RX-7 (all of them, including the tuned ones)
- S2000
- SLS
- Amuse S2000
- Ferrari F40
- Ferrari... umm... that semi-old one, don't remember the name...

Many more i guess, but that's the ones i've "tested" so far.

I don't know how they do it.. but some of them feel redicolous, not any better then the new Hot Pursuit honestly.. while others feel great, that's what i meant

Oh my god, this game keeps on reminding me why i'm avoiding it's 'career' mode.. That night race with Murcielago in Grand Tour Special event.. jeeez, i had to restart it couple of times because i couldn't freakin see where i was going.. and the handling, oh my god the handling.. finally i couldn't be bothered to do it again and went with the bronze.
Managed to grab a copy on Friday not hooked it up to the net yet can anyone tell me the updates so far and what they do for the game?

The latest one fixed some online things, like only the host can start the race etc.. maybe some other things, but you should definately install them.
