    Gran Turismo 5

    Ok, honest answers only. Who here has a PS3 and Gran Turismo 5? And if you do, who has their R8 set up in the precise colour of the car and sideblade like they do in real life? I play it with my kids and I have both my V8 and V10 set up that way, as well as many of my other current and previous cars.

    It's quite a lot of fun actually to see your real car in a racing game looking as life-like as it does on the screen. Anyone else done this?

    I play Forza4 with a virtually identical R8.

    What weren't you able to replicate in the game? My understanding is Forza allows for more cosmetic customization than GT5. Is this correct?

    Do you have your other cars in there as well?

    I wasn't able to get my mirror posts to stay white and I couldn't find a good match for my aftermarket wheels. Overall, I do believe you get a lot more customization options in Forza compared to GT5.

    Re: Gran Turismo 5

    Hmm...it would be pretty interesting if those who have GT5 (or Forza) could post a picture of their real car alongside a picture of their in-game car.

    Re: Gran Turismo 5

    I do - though I haven't updated it for the matt wrap and never got round to adding the "StaSis" badges.

    It's set up just like my car - supercharger, slightly up-rated brakes, street tires. I run Laguna Seca and Sonoma/Infinion/Sears before a track weekend there.

    I've gone one step further and have the Fanatec wheel and pedals. When put in front of my 110" screen (I have a projector set up at the back of the room) it's pretty realistic!

    That's amazing! I do hear a lot of race car drivers are using these simulations to prep themselves for certain tracks. The realism is pretty mind-blowing.

    I remember on GT4 there was a Hong Kong street circuit and when I was working in the Far East, I had a billboard advertisement on one of the high traffic locations there which was running right when the people from Sony were doing their on-location photography. Sure enough, my billboard made it into the game.

    Re: Gran Turismo 5

    I also have the Fanatec csr elite wheel and pedals... makes Forza 4 even more realistic. I just use the controller for Forza Horizon since it's more of an acrade style racer than a simulator. However, the visuals in Forza Horizon are very good. I will upload screenshots later.

    +1 for Fanatec CSR E Wheel and pedals with r-Seat - very good set-up.
