    People say this every update, it's never the case. I doubt it is this time either.

    I agree. It's just a placebo.

    Has anyone else noticed that (cough, cough) Nissan has quite a lot of redone cars comparable to the other makes? Well, I guess they have a lot of cars to begin with.

    I would say all of the RUFs were touched up, although the CTR2 wasn't improved to the extent of the other four.

    My honest opinion is that alot of the cars that have seen visual touches, it gives me the impression that these are cars that PD wants to continue to use in future Gran Turismo titles. Those without such touches, I'm starting to wonder if they are wishing to scrap it. Either that or they've been busy re-modelling them or making them look sharper for a future Gran Turismo title on the PS4.

    Let's just pray they do this. Because even a person who isn't as bothered as badly as others when it comes to standards like me, would lose my mind if standards are in Gran Turismo 7.

    Does anyone know if the Chaparral 2D is semi-premium? Thanks.

    You react as if it was promised. They haven't updated anymore standards including the Chaparral so chill out.

    Either way, the Chaparral deserves to be a premium.

    Now Samus, is it a crime to be a fan of a certain car? ;)

    I confess to being a Ford GT fanboy. As well as in love with the Oullim Spirra. And the Audi R8 and the BMW M3 GTR. And the Mk III Supra has a place dear to my heart. Not to mention a whole slew of Ferraris and Lamborghinis.

    Okay, maybe I'm more of a car lover in general, but everyone has a few faves.

    No but when you talk about cars that 'deserve' to be premium you can either look at it objectively or with personal bias.

    Some people are saying things about gaps in the panels of the cars. But are we making sure that those cars don't just have huge panel gaps in life?

    I mean a few panels on my moms Dodge Intrepid have like a 1cm gap on a few good panels. Even my brothers 2014 Ford Fiesta has some pretty large gaps

    Not deny'ing that a lot of standards just plain out look bad though. Because they do, and i personally cant drive a single standard that isnt open cab.

    Isn't it the other way around? Bad standards doesn't even have a gap at all, just flat panel.

    What they're saying is standards don't have modeled panel gaps, they're just lines drawn on. Semi standards and premiumshave separately modeled panels.

    The favoritism is strong is this one.


    While is not as mind-boggling as one guy online who once said "They should've put the Veyron on a Pedestal" (I'm not even joking), its still sadly optimistic.

    That is one absolutely beautiful car. I love the overall shape of it. I too hope they semi-premi it.

    Sadly, it'd probably get a 20,000,000Cr. pricetag if it was premiumed'

    I rather get the feeling that no more standard cars will be updated to premium or even semi-premium in updates (unless, like the Auto Union V16, they're seriously broken and in need of bug-fixes).

    The only time I see it happening is if paid DLC is released (like in the case of GT5's XJR-9).

    And what would suggest that could happen?

    Do you not like the 2D? I happen to like it a lot. I like to have this avatar so I can troll the WSC threads, because it is actually permanently banned from racing, due to its non-existent tire wear and supernatural grip.

    I admit to having bias for the Lister Storm.

    I think the point is we all want our #1 favorite car (if it's standard) to be semi-premium. You have one, don't you?
