    I know a few of you have all the DLC, I've only forked out for the SPA track.
    I would by extra tracks if they were familiar ones that i've previously played in the likes of Need for speed shift, such as as Donnington, Road America, Silverstone, Istanbul and the other F1 tracks that are in the codemasters games.
    Car wise , I think they are catering far too much for the japanese market.
    How many Nissans and Toyotas do we need in a game?
    Will the Japanese really buy more micro purchases than Europeans annd Americans?
    In the first few months of release, it sold 6.37 million copies, nearly 4 Million of these were in Europe, 1.5 million in the US and 800k in Japan .
    So why do Polyphony keep updating it with Japanese cars with the latest track being a japanese one when 2/3rd of the players of the game are in Europe.
    Surely they should be catering for the European market by releasing cars that the Europeans players have grown up with and have owned or wanted to own.
    If you had 79p to spend what would you buy?
    Personally I'd like to see European Cars, Proper Van and 4 x 4s

    European Cars.
    Ford , Cortina(lotus) Escort Xr3, Fiesta Xr2, Sierra Xr4, Granada Ghia, Rs200 , Capri 2-8i
    Vauxhall Opel, Astras, Corsa , Triumph TR6,m TR7, Stag, even old Austin Alegros and princesses for a laugh. Perhaps some rusty Ladas and Skoda's. Fiat Mirafiori, X19. Saabs, Seats a few more Renaults and Citroens.
    I know they cant do every car but theres lots of European cars out there that i'd rather race around in than all these GTrs and Skylines.

    Vans
    I want to race a Transit van against a Toyota Hi Ace. Van racing is great fun (alledegdly)

    Big 4 X 4s to race on the snow and Dirt track such as Range Rover Evoke, Nissan Patrol Land Rover discovery and Mitsubishi Shogun.
    What would you like to see on GT 5?

    Trackwise the Motegi twin ring course I quite like, there is even a mini oval course.

    Carwise, I have a pet hate and its Nissan Skyline's. I dont know how many different versions I have but there are hundreds of them. I like having the older versions right upto the latest model but just how many R32/33/34's do you really need.

    Vans would be cool.
    Id like to see Mk1/2 Escort, Mk 1/2 Cortina, 3door Sierra Cosworth, Hillman Imp. Sure there are loads if I sat and thought about it.

    I'd be happy to buy £20 expansion packs containing domestic tracks and cars/teams to suit. Scottish mini, BTCC etc.

    Would be great to get one for each major country such as USA, GB, Spain etc.

    I'll buy any for GT5, but I think they should make GT6 now and get it out on PS3.

    ooh yeah a proper Bathurst race would be cool.
    I always liked Donington Park on the old TOCA touring cars game as well.

    Ok, it's not that good but I've shared a track imaginatively called G4 that LouP and I enjoy in road based cars. Enjoy!
