A few quick impressions: - Reviews and comments on podcasts that indicated you can't see in the dealership if you already own a car are blatently false. You can even see which color you own, and how many of those (maybe you can get multiple from sharing with others, or its useful for cars that are not shareable but tradeable, though I haven't seen those, only the other way around) - Getting a Gold medal for challenges seems about as hard as in other GT games. I'm trying to get them all gold right away, but I can't always do it before my patience runs out. - Driving model seems to be a fair bit more advanced than GT4, which is weird in a sense. Collisions are better and the tire grip model is vastly improved. These even seem better than in GT5P which is surprising. - Cockpit view is surprisingly cool and impressive. Good view of the road, and surprisingly good movement in the cockpit. The R390 Challenge on La Sarthe's Porsche corners is a very good example. I use this most of the time, which I didn't expect (though I did hope it ). Good game so far.
