    Edit:

    So, your car/dealership cycles depend only on what the car you receive at the start and not your console type, game format or region.

    I'll keep a list in here of all known cycles depending on first cars...

    Alfa Romeo 147: Cars & Dealerships - Dr_JRE
    BMW 120i: Dealerships only - RogsR34UK
    Honda Fit: Cars & Dealerships - SilverEclipse01
    Mazda Protege '02: None yet
    MINI Cooper: Cars & Dealerships - Cruizer8
    Peugeot 206: Cars & Dealerships - NLxAROSA
    Pontiac Vibe: Cars & Dealerships - Han_the_Dragon
    Renault Megane Cars & Dealerships - Famine
    VW Golf GTi: Cars & Dealerships - peterjford

    I have the PAL USB version. Can't remember the manufacturers but i know for sure TVR weren't amongst them.

    Come to think of it, i'm on day 43 and i still haven't seen TVR.

    Same here. I was given Peugeot 206 and the starting dealerships were DMC, Plymouth, Mitsubishi and Mugen. I have the PAL UMD version, standard edition. The exact same dealership combination returned on day 71.

    I had the same as you Famine. I'm guessing you also started with the Renualt Megane?

    I have the free Go version.

    Oh wow. That doesn't make life too :censored: complicated then.

    So. It might vary version to version as well as format to format, but seems to be standardised based on the random first car - which was, yes, the Megane in my case (well, after the SLR, Veyron, Citroen GT, ZR1, Enzo and Countach :D ).

    *tears hair out in an excessively theatrical fashion*

    I also noticed I got the same setup from day #1 on day #71 and #72. I'm sticking the dealership setup in an excel sheet now, will let you guys know when I'm at day 140. ;) I'm just putting the dealerships in, not the individual cars.

    Hmm. I've been ploughing through the dealerships and I've reached cycle 6 now. So before I continue, I'm uploading this smaller version of the file which I'd like double-checking please.

    In order to do this, you must have received the Renault Megane 2.0 16v '03 as a starter car

    Please download this .zip. It unpacks to a .xls file which is a single overview sheet for cycles 1-6 (days 1-12, or 71-82, or 141-152 and so on). Please then compare this data to the data you have in-game. This will let me know if I should bother continuing or not.

    Start car free download version PSP-GO in the UK = Renault Megane 2.0 16V '03 colour = Rouge Vif.

    I don't have my dealer spreadsheet handy but I can confirm that 13 out of 14 cars bought match your spreadsheet exactly.

    The one that doesn't match is on day 1 to 2 and is a Toyota Supra 2.5GT Twin Turbo R '90. It's not on your spreadsheet at all.

    For anyone else with this starter car. You can check the View Records option on the main screen and then select the pen icon listed as recent events. It shows all the cars you have bought and on what day.

    Start car was the Honda Vibe.

    3 other people who had the Vibe also had the same 4 manufacturers as me also

    That'll be an oversight on my part - I definitely remember it was there and it's in my backup notepad file and in post 1. However I regenerated the file from scratch and didn't put in a cross-checking function until day 5 :D

    Could you check the following 5 weeks for me? If they're the same, it confirms the set-cycle-per-starter-car theory. I'd also like to check that the start car isn't console-dependant. So... which console do you have? :D

    Sorry I wasn't clear. The 13 cars that I matched were spread across each of the days listed in the spreadsheet except column 3 when I didn't buy anything.

    The console and version are listed on the first line of my previous post. Free download version on the PSP-Go

    Okay, that's both interesting and cool... I have an early PSP-1000 and a UMD version. daan has a PSP-2000 and UMD version and I think he said he started with a Golf. Oddly, I've deleted my gamesave and started again and got the Megane a second time...

    My launch day PSP-1000 gives me the Golf IV GTI as a start car from the UMD version I bought before I found out I could get it for free on my Go. :dunce:

    Hmm. So it seems like the start car is randomised between a small pack and I was just... lucky (or not) to get the same one twice.

    Edit: Same cars as you on Days 15-16. So I think we've confirmed that the start car determines the cycles.

    I also started out with a MkIV GTI, but can't remember my initial car dealerships. I do know that the second set had Lamborghini, because I almost freaked at having that mock my miniscule funds, until I noticed I did have just enough to managed a 25th anniversary Countach. :D

    I will pop in my second Memory Stick and spam days (enter and exit Single Race mode) while tracking the cycles if it helps. I'm hopeful though that Daan and I will be getting the same stuff so as to avoid NA and EU lists.

    EDIT: I also have a PSP 2000 with UMD version (NA).

    Looking at that I see a guy that had a MkIV GTI also saying he bought an M3 on day 1. I do not recall seeing an M3, or I would have bought it as well. I may have just missed it, being in awesome mode and whatnot, but if the available models in each dealer are even slightly different this will be complex.

    I guess it's possible that they have the same dealerships but different cars in the dealerships. Overall though it seems clear that they've made sure somehow that not everyone gets the same cars at the same time.
