HELP! - Need A Brit (UK) To Gift Me Special Rare Car

#1 Posted by KaosAngel (14251 posts) -

Here's the deal, on Facebook, GT5 is having a special event and you get a code for a free Chrome Jaguar (not available else where).  The problem is, it's location locked and it's pretty much impossible for someone outside of Europe to do it. 
I need someone from the UK to put in the code, and then gift me the car to my PSN Account.  >.> 
If need be, I will make a fake Facebook account and install the App so I can give the Brit an extra code for himself.   
If other Americans want this special limited edition car, put your name down and hopefully another UK user can help us out.  -_- 
Why is GT bigger in EU than NA....why does EU get all the good events and DLC packs?  :(

I could help but you may need to explain a bit more what I am supposed to do exactly.
I dont need to play that Facebook game do I? You have the code and Im just gifting the car correct?

@Zimbo: I give you the code once it unlocks (need like two more races), and then you download it....load up GT5, go to your garage and gift it to me. 
If you want one for yourself, I can make a fake Facebook and do it again, give you the code so you can keep one for yourself. 
EDIT:  You'll need to make a new PSN account from the UK location so you can put in the new code, and then use the new PSN account to gift it to your primary one.

Alright I'll do  it for you. Don't worry about an extra code. Just PM me the details when you are ready.

I cant get this to work at all :/ 
I keep doing the mini game, and selecting up to 5 people to have a 'grudge' with, the screen hangs and requires refreshing as the guide says it will, however after refreshing nothing has changed at all on my profile page and it still says i need to create more grudges ! 
Any advice?

@AlexW00d: Same for me, it glitches.  You gotta keep doing it until it hits.  -_-  I'm stuck on the last race for the past few minutes. 
Oh British Lords who used to rule America, I accept your ways of socialism and will forever be honor bound to your ways of driving on the right side of the road, and using proper metric system that my tiny American head wouldn't be able to understand.  Also thank you for Emma Watson and Karen Gillan.

Got it working, turns out you just need to keep refreshing your profile every few minutes, can confirm this as legit

Oh, I just unlocked the Home suit, I just keep spam choosing 'grudges' and redoing the event and clicking new people. Seems it does work... 
Edit: As soon as I sad that I unlocked the Jag too :D

@OmegaPirate: I already got someone to do it, but hopefully someone else can use your help on the site!  :D
#15 Posted by OmegaPirate (5642 posts) -
@KaosAngel: Good to hear brother! i also put forth the notion that on race night we try and get a race with everyone taking part in this car (or the standard version of it at least) as it is amazing! 
Offer still stands by the way if any non uk people get a code and want the car sent to them in game  - feel free to hit me up! 
100% legit and i dont bite!

Got it. Now I just need the game =/

@Pessh: Always good to be prepared.

Can't get the page to load at all, keep getting that darned grey box problem.

#19 Edited by Binman88 (3706 posts) -
@WinterSnowblind: Mine was the same. What worked for me was to just keep starting the game again, do something else until the game ended, then choose 1 grudge person from the list of recent players. Do that 4 times and keep refreshing the profile page and they should start showing up there. Once 4 show up you'll get your code. edit: I also always refreshed the page when the grey box appeared after adding someone.

What's so special about this Jaaaaag? 
Aside from being awful Chrome I mean.... 

#21 Posted by WinterSnowblind (7595 posts) -
@Binman88: Yeah, figured that out eventually.  The topic creator on that site should really update the post to mention this, simply refreshing it doesn't seem to help.
