    Then what is doing it? Because clearly the proof is in your own photos, you can see door seems and trunk lids and front bumpers. Unless your GT5 pictures are over exposed and the GT6 ones are looking to do more than they actually are. Which is no what you seem to be saying, then how do we know they're exactly as good as depicted here without going and looking ourselves?

    Also it's just PD jargon as well to beat around the bush, so I agree with what you've said.

    You can see them in GT6 because (depedning on the car) they were remodelled in 3D (like Ruf BTR, 240Z, Ibiza etc which I would call semi-premium) or "painted" with new bump-mapped textures (PAO, SLK and many others).

    Just doing a test, can you guys let me know if the IGCD thing shows up instead of the car?

    The IGCD anti-hotlinking banner is showing up for me. You'll have to reupload the image elsewhere.

    Thank you and it's not my image, it was just an image that someone on the site took.
    Well, that takes out my plan to just share cars from that site...damn.

    Anyway, here's some standard car pictures I took in photo mode:

    Nice work Mikhail K :tup:

    It's nice to see that PD polished some of the standards, I bought a AE86 and it looks great. Hope they keep polishing more standards in future updates. I'm an Alfa Romeo fan and all of them (standards) look :censored:, straight from GT4 :grumpy:

    Is it me or do the standards in GT6 look better in game than they did in GT5?

    Yeah most of them do. ;)
    Unfortunately there are still some bad ones though. (Some Kei cars and SADLY the Toyota Supra [the one with the famous 2ZJ engine :(])

    You only have to take a look at all the pages of this thread (take your time, though :D )

    I don't mean the updated standards (or semi-premiums or whatever you want to call them), just the general standard models. It's strange because there seems to be no little to no changes made on them, yet they look sharper and cleaner.

    I dont know if it's because cars now are less reflecting in the surface, but some standards have such little improvement that it's actually hard to notice.

    The standard MINI looks awful... I wanted to make a set with it but I ended up doing just 1 shot.


    McLaren saved the day (and the shot... :D)

    That's a Mini not a MINI. A Mini is one of the most successful road and race cars of all time produced over 40 years. a MINI is a oversized pig ugly abomination that BMW churned out to pillage the name.

    You got the idea didn't you? I do know the differences between both. I wrote MINI for no specific reason.

    The Volvo S60 in GT6 is easily one of the worst standard cars.

    I drive an S60 of that same body style in real life, and it's really disappointing.

    After experiencing the new physics in GT6, I've changed my mind about Standards in GT7. I'd love to enjoy all 1200 cars over again, plus new ones, with even more realistic physics on PS4. I'm sure some here will choke when they read this, but oh well.

    That particular Mini is from 1998. BMW already owned bmc/morris/austin/whoeverthehellmakesit at the time. That would make it a MINI.

    I'm on the same boat. Sure, not all of them look like a Premium, but they all have the same physics. I'd rather be able to actually drive a [insert random standard here] with bad jaggies and true to life physics than not at all.

    I think you must have posted in some of the GT5 Standard car debates like I did. Some people went into conniptions when I said the same thing. "Well, so you should be glad to have a GT game with 4-bit Atari 2600 graphics, " or whatever.

    But GT6 is showing a lot of promise. More than a hundred Standards got a sweet face lift, and at that pace, several hundred could by the time GT7 is ready. And there will likely be 500 some odd Premium cars in the list to enjoy, or more. Or it's entirely possible that Premiumizing these Standards will be easier than we think. I suspect that GT7 won't be ready until 2016, which would give PD some time to create a solid next gen Gran Turismo.

    I have a feeling that the Alto came from Gran Turismo 3.
