I spent like an hour getting the layers right to make my in game car match my real life one.

I got it as close to mine as I can get it.

....now I just need to run an ethernet cable upstairs.

I am considering buying xbox for this game. I have GT5 and play that. Does anyone have any good reviews/opinions about forza compared to GT5?

Personally, I HATED GT5. It just wasn't fun for me. I've enjoyed every Forza game better than any of the Gran Turismos.

I got GT5 on release day, and have played it maybe 4 times. All of which was for like 15-30min before getting annoyed with it and shutting it off.

Forza seems to be more focused on having fun and enjoying it, where gt5 just isn't.

Every car in Forza has an in car view also, not just the handful that GT5 decided to do.

It seems like GT5 is more of a simulator, where as forza is just more fun. I think i'm going to buy a xbox just for forza.

I would have to disagree about Forza being just more fun, the new physics model in Forza is great; the AI is much better as well than in GT5.

GT5 has been sitting on my shelf for months now. I would definately buy the 360.

The thing that most bothers me about GT5 is the cars take the cars take the same line and if you're in that line they will push you and do the class pit move. Is it like this in Forza?

^^ I haven't played Forza 4 yet, but I was really into Forza 3.The AI usually does a good job of avoiding you. I'm sure that they only improved that for 4. I really want to pick up the new game, but I need to focus on school right now... Grrr

I just tried playing GT5, I can't stand the PS3 controller, the triggers are horrid! I really need to pick up a racing wheel.

So is there any way for those of us who got the game from Best Buy to get the 2011 STi or do we have to wait 'till they release a DLC 'r something? Can I just buy one in the auction house? I am asking 'cause my gold membership expired, otherwise I would just try myself.

I don't have the game yet, but you can't just go to the dealership and buy it? if not then what exactly do they have for sale for Subaru?

I've seen on Ebay people selling the download code for $5.

I have to be honest, i've been too busy tooling around in my BMW 2002 turbo to think about the STi yet. Once I have become bored of this lil go-kart, i'll check out the Subie.

Overall, im super impressed with the game. All the online rival stuff is kick ass. "Star in a reasonably priced car challenge", anyone?
