    Just out of curiosity... How would this one fair on the Ascari seasonal?

    I imagine it would get gold but you'd have to watch your throttle control for most of the lap. It wouldn't be as fast the X-BOW's but not many cars are on that particular seasonal.

    That seasonal is pretty much tailored for the X-BOW's..

    Hi Shaun. I tried several Settings at the BMW 507 but your Tune is the fastes. A Racing Exhaust brings the full 500 PP and 1.33 Laps at Apricot Hill. 200 kg Ballast Weight gives a 50/50 Weight Distribution. It makes the Car a little more stable but also to heavy. I prefer a weak Spring rate ( like 8.00/5.00) for this kind of Cars. Your Tune is pretty ok :)

    I like your random photo art Pictures because i lived long time in Asia

    Awesome, You live in Cyprus? Very nice place to be.
    Which part of Asia did you live in? I would take a guess of either Singapore or Malaysia? I have seen some sights on the Scooters that zip around asian cities. Very scary but also hilarious at the same time.

    The only thing I remember about Phuket is the Elephant fantasy show they have on the outskirts of town, That was really good and the really annoying drink and suit sellers in the Pattong District of Phuket! boy, did they get on my nerves.

    Ah, the classic meet someone abroad and never leave scenario. Its happened to many a person! Can't be too bad if you've been there two years! Hows the work situation out there for british ex-pats?

    A very nice tune Shaun...god does this car go:)) yes you are right no oil change:)
    I just spent all day yesterday and all night downloading gt6 special edition....with loads of updates just to get these cars...but i was a little disappointed that you dont get the precision pack..i really wanted the Audi R8 and Nissan Nismo. and in the proceess lost all my photos and replay video's which have all my best lap times..cry cry cry..so be aware anybody that wants to upgrade to the special edition is make sure you export what you want to keep to your XBM

    At least you have 20 off the anniversary cars. I only have the 10 cars which I tuned up as I got them for free when I pre-ordered the game. I also 1 million free credits for pre-ordering the game as well. The anniversary cars are really nice, its just a shame they cost so much to buy them all.

    No your'e right they are wicked cars and its worth buying the special just to have something different to drive and they look awesome and i did manage to get £40 for my normal edition out here because none of the game shops have gt6 at the moment...very lucky....i am more annoyed with myself for loosing all my data...silly me:)

    Did you lose all your save data as in your tunes and your credits which you built up in the normal version of GT6? I considered upgrading to the anniversary edition but I wouldn't get much back for my normal version and id only get 10 extra cars than what I have now. its not worth my money to do that really.

    The Ford GT40 AE '66 also has a special one lap SH version tuned which is very good. It is in the seasonal section of the garage index. That is well worth applying as it can be used in many races throughout career mode and in seasonals which fall in the PP range.

    Oh yes, similar setup to the last lot. Ford gt40 for the first one, Maserati for the second and for the last one, x-bow, rocket car, and the mclaren mp4-12c will end up being the first winners I try when I get up. Should be easy these lot

    Done Silverstone with the M3 chrome line not easy for me as I was up against a TVR Tamara that was leaving behind on the straights would have been better had I changed the final gear for I higher top speed

    I prefer the cars that don't make the races easy. It's a much better feeling when you come first knowing other cars should be faster than you on any particular track.

    Edit: Very fun car - Mini Cooper S '11 FITT Entry. I forget how good this car is sometimes, it eats up the Silverstone Track for breakfast. Extremely nippy for an FF car. :)

    @chrisspeed281 - Its time for you to find all the obscure tunes to fill up my A Spec List :) Ive already found a couple which are fun to drive. the KTM X-BOW is the perfect car to get gold on the first attempt with at 600PP SS range. You were certainly right about that car being a weapon at the seasonals!

    Silverstone back in 2011. It was a race meant to build up the excitement for the main F1 event. Those cars are really loud! Sound like a swarm of bumblebees going past.
