  2. polo155

    Thanks 98destroyer

  3. terminator363

    GTPlanet has a new look, yay!

  4. polo155

    How are people using formular 1 car on Time Trial? Mine don’t go lower than like 800pp

    • 98destroyer

      Add more ballast

    • killer tiller

      And if the ballast doesn’t get it down enough, reduce the aerodynamics and it should squeeze in

  5. JPGallardo

    All this for FREE? I cant belive it. lol

  6. jrkiwiboy

    More drift and dirt events Are great. Polyphony should also consider dedicated servers to drifting and gymkanah as well.

  7. Fastback


    Does anyone remember when GT5 didn’t have an online dealership? Everyone had to actually WAIT for the rare cars to show up.

    And the most credits of any race was 117k(American Championship), now the American Championship is 97k and a 1 lap ride in a Ferrari is 504k!

    Mark my word…Every room will be buzzing like the sounds of bees once the x1 is able to be downloaded. Now, every room has the 2J,2D,GT ONE, Speed 8, 1963 Corvette Race Car, and the BMW V12.

    I hope you all that really wanted the GT ONE are going to be happy seeing a room full of them!

    • SmileyOr1

      Hey, could you point me to those rooms please? I need to get my fix!



      If you come into my NASCAR room with an X2010 you’re gonna get kicked :D

  8. Fastback

    Are you serious? They put the Speed 8,the GT ONE, and the BMW V12 in the online dealership at the same time?

    The online dealership is KILLING the rarity of the cars!!

    Can anyone answer this question: Why does the Miata show up on nearly every refreshed list on the Used Car Dealer and the Cuda only shows up twice a month at best? Do you get my point?

    • what rarity? I had all cars in my Garage from every OCD refresh since 5 times ago.

      but! still no Tommy ZZII :(((((((

    • 98destroyer

      The last ZZII I ever saw was back in February.

    • gt5fanatec

      I had to trade to get a ZZ||. I got tired of waiting.

  9. Magic Ayrton

    That facepalm troll needs to get lost, what the hell are those dousches doing on here anyway? go and play foreskinoutofconTroll.

  10. HuskyGT

    Never thought I´d see an E92 in Laguna Seca Blau…

    • HuskyGT

      Nevermind… That´s not L.S.B… It´s too metallic. For some reason it looks good, though.

    • Killer Tiller

      Attention ceiling_fan…. Let people know what colour the Beemer is

    • ceiling_fan

      The color is Aztec Green Pearl. Thanks for your nice words guys, and to Jordan for using my image!

  11. gt5fanatec

    little trick with time trials is to win Bronze, Silver, then Gold, in that order.
    You get more Money!

  12. They never put bmw mclaren to sell in this DLC.

  13. darkpigraph

    AAAAAAARRRRGH the BMW V12 LMR is in the OCD! You guys want to hear a story? I thought not, but i’ll tell it anyway. The other night, the BMW popped up in the UCD, at 3.6 mil cr. I thought to myself, geez, i really don’t know when i’m going to see that one again, i’d better snap it up. I had 2.5 at the time , so it was a question of winning a few seasonal’s and i’d be good. Except i was playing really badly and not getting any wins, so i have 3.1 mil cr by the time the Beemer is right at the bottom of the UCD, one more race and it’s GONE. So i think to myself, ok, i can do a time or drift trial, because the UCD doesnt refresh when you do those. But i’d already golded both time trials and i’m B A D at drifting. Long stgory short,it took me 2 and a half hours to finally gold the Special Stage route 5 drift trial, and the BMW was mine. So, that’s my story, no, don’t mention it, was a joy to share it with y’all.

  14. McZachenF1138

    Butbutbut I didn’t even get a chance to grind for the Chaparrals! D:

    • Finnstar72

      Lol I started too late and missed getting either by less than 10 minutes

  15. Yes! The OCD contains the last two standard cars I don’t have: Pescarolo Courage C60 – Peugeot Race Car ’03, and Audi R8 Race Car ’01.

    The only other non-DLC car I don’t have is the X2010 Prototype. I guess I gotta get working on that X2010 challenge gold. :-)

    • Killer Tiller

      No, log on next week and you’ll get it for free when Vettel wins the F1 championship this weekend

    • No, I already have that X2010, the S.VETTEL. It’s the prototype I don’t have.

    • Killer Tiller

      Sorry, I read that wrong.

  16. Andrytheboss

    WOAH that OCD is just… Fantastic

  17. willy723

    Figuring it out, the new OCD has a cost of approx 32mil to purchase all cars….I love it, reason to modify more unused low level cars to win seasonals with to buy the biig guns a 0 miles.

  18. BMW Fan Boy

    Doesn´t the ’07 M3 has 4 exhausts instead of 2?

    • This must be titanium racing exhast, they replace the original ones. See also Gallardo

    • ceiling_fan

      Doupik is correct. :)

  19. Mazdaman83

    ‘Eiger Nordwand G Trail Reverse’
    Yessss !!!
    A dirt drift trail !!! :-)

  20. Mr S Vettel

    Forza 4 = 9.5

    • Ras35001

      How are the physics compared to GT5?

    • Magic Ayrton

      you=wrong website.

    • Magic Ayrton

      “On the road, Forza 4’s handling is pliable. It’s fiercer and more terrifying than the previous game, with cars eager to plough into under-steer or aggressive over-steer as you blister into the corners. It doesn’t quite have the precise realism of Gran Turismo 5 though.”

      From online FM4 review.

    • 98destroyer

      Was the rating out of 20?

    • Facepalm…..

      Nice try Magic, one qoute out of a batch of reviews making it the top rated driving sim of this gen. LOL

    • daics69

      Mr S Vettel = 8 year old boy on wrong console with wrong game giving false ratings

  21. Well the new OCD is nice.

  22. Magic Ayrton

    I agree, but Japan needs to use its companies like PD to recover quicker, I think PD sould employ more people to make new car packs now though, premium or non premium, we want all the newer ruf models, sound upgrade (induction/exhaust) and wheels for standards, more in depth painting options.. Spec 3.0 next year maybe?? Meanwhile we will try to help by buying all DLC?

  23. cccobx1

    PD really are picking up with add-ons in the last couple of months great recovery from the quake only if all of japan could have recovered this well

    • Injured

      Such a tragedy. Well, there were more than just one tragedy in Japan these past 7 months. The things Japan has endured. It’s really disheartening to hear nothing coming out of Japan about the progress they’re making. There’s nothing that gets attention.

      Oh man.

  24. PD are really spoiling us with news about spec 2 and now some more seasonal updates. Just a shame the one final car I need is never in the OCD :(

  25. MrDinosaw94

    Esperante has eluded me since GT3… Finally, she’s mine :)

    • MrDinosaw94

      And I forgot to mention that photo…. It took me at least a minute of staring to figure out it was cape ring and not a real life back road.

      Fantastic pic

    • SleazyC69

      i wish real roads did have rumble strips! probably good that they don’t though

    • daics69

      LOL @ sleazy.

    • ceiling_fan

      Glad you guys liked the picture :)

  26. Now I’ll finally put my hands on a R92CP!!!

    • Why o why did I spend 4 million on an R92cp last week…..doh!

  27. spikeyhairdude

    Nice. New drift trials

  28. doodooshorts

    The drifting was a freakin blast!!!!!!!

    • Injured

      The full Autumn Ring is even better to drift at.

  29. 750PP Time Trial…Nice!

    • gt5fanatec

      i used my minolta. :D

    • Yermama_904

      I used Suzuki and got gold :)

    • King Something

      I used the Formula GT. Was in first in the worldwide rankings for all of two minutes on Wednesday night. Of course, a whole whopping 35 people had done the event at that point in time, but still…..

  30. Injured


    I didn’t get the 2D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Injured

      Blank me in the blank and call me a blankity blank blank blank!

    • Injured

      What if these are a part of the car pack?

    • Killer Tiller

      Ouch that’s gotta hurt. It’ll pop up sooner or later again

    • Killer Tiller

      I’m expecting brand new cars that arent in the game for the DLC pack. I’m not paying for cars I already have

    • Injured

      Oh obviously. I messed up. I was thinking that back then when Standards were to be converted to “full on” premiums.

    • Easy way to get the 2D?J, etc…
      A or B-Spec a historic race (the one with the 2J in it) and check the UCD after each race. It is how I got my collection :)

    • Injured

      AH! I’ll try it. Hope it doesn’t backfire. You know how those menus make us wait. haha

    • Honchie

      I was saving up for a Chaparral 2J , at least I got the 2D.

    • HighPlainaDrftr

      Similar situation for me, I got the 2D and missed the 2J. Do they give any warning when they change the OCD?

    • J-KiLLA24

      Lol, same for me. I just got the 2D two days ago and I was planning on getting it today. Oh well…

    • J-KiLLA24

      “it” meaning the 2J.

    • CapnCowboy

      Same for me!! I was gonna get it last nite and that’s when I noticed the new Online Dealership…oh well, time to buy all those racecars!!

    • Injured

      it’s usually every other week, or in other words, 1 time every 2 weeks.

    • Injured

      I got the 2J first because I felt something like this would happen to me so I chose the open-cockpit 2J because I thought we were going to get standard cockpit views. I can’t believe I was right.

      Let that be a lesson of procrastinating, or time management, to us all.

  31. What color is that M3? It’s schmexy.

  32. WTFnews

    first this is good news everyone

    • secondly, stop saying first haha

    • WTFnews

      well ectualy i was happy to be first becouse i always see them later.

    • 07_HSV_GTS

      I hate all the people that commented on the 2.0 Details Post because there is over 560 comments and anything I try to look at it on the app crashes and on Internet explorer the page doesn’t load!!! Can someone repost details Plz.
