    *Fires up GT5 to do the ridiculously well funded seasonal and finds 1.1GB update needed*

    Don't worry, only just booted up my PS3 yesterday after it being offline for a month. Now I need to update it again.

    Doesn't seem to be particularly different - not 1.1GB different anyway.

    The menus have been slightly rearranged and when you enter a race it loads the race menu and track etc first, then loads the vehicles while you're faffing about. All that means though is that you end up waiting for the cars after jabbing the "Start Race" button.

    The silhouette mode for being inside cars is immensely suck. It's literally a black cutout around the windows of the car on screen, so in a lot of cars (racers especially) you'll just be looking at a tiny fraction of a mostly-black screen. Good for convertibles though.

    No noticeable reduction in loadtimes, no fix for a bug which plagues mine (it always says "Your time and date are not set correctly", which is BS), no major new features. Whoop!

    The 1.1GB I've noticed that the new XP thing is nice. That new extra car is interesting. And I have a creeping suspicion all that data was for the DLCs. On the other hand, the black cutout for some reason is okay by me if only because the view is a bit elevated. now if they had a proper hood view....

    I'd been getting that time is wrong message. I was sure it wasn't, turned out it was out by about 30 minutes, :D. Set it to update through the net and I've not seen it again.

    Mine's set to update from the net, and it's currently correct. It won't go away. :(

    Well, I took the plunge and bought the DLC today - no discount for PSN Plus subscribers which was slightly disappointing though. £9 quid or so for the cars, tracks, clothes, helmets and paints (does anyone actuially use the paint or horns in GT5? They seem a bit redundant to me).

    I wish that they would change the way you collect your gift cars - you have to go through each of the 15 tickets, watch the silly reveal and then answer two questions each time. Took me so long to 'collect' all the cars that I ran out of time to actually test any of them!

    Anyway, I will swap my wheel-stand from Forza4 mode into GT5 mode tonight and give the new cars and tracks a go.

    update coming 20th december

    Users can now change wheels on Standard cars

    The settings sheets will include a new ‘copy’ feature

    In GT Auto, players will be able to see how the oil changes, aerodynamic parts, engine overhauls, and racing modifications will affect performance points and engine power, before and after their application

    Free coupons have been added that allow you to wash cars, change oil, overhaul your engine, or refresh the car body in GT Auto (10 coupons will be distributed for free to each of those who have downloaded the 2.02 update)

    Pressing the Square button in the car coupon selection screen of the Car Delivery will now allow you to exchange all car coupons at once, rather than doing one at a time

    In screens where the [Garage] and [Driver List] buttons are displayed in the A/B Spec events, Special Events, and Seasonal Events, pressing the Square button will now show the [Garage], and pressing the Triangle button will bring up the drivers list

    In My Lounge, the room settings will feature a new ‘Max. number of participants’ setting
    In the event selection screen of seasonal events, there are now ☆(star) marks that show the number of Gold Trophies attained in each event

    Improved racing sound effects

    Elements of the steering assist controls (used when using certain controllers on Racing Karts) have been tweaked.

    very happy with standard cars:clap: deliver all is good too. havent played in ages though
