Online Car Sharing Group - Let's Share Cars!

#1 Edited by KaosAngel (13764 posts) -

So me and my buddies found out we can share cars with each other without having to waste credits on them.   
 
You select a car, and select "Share with Friends", and then when you go on the garage, there's a tab that says "Online".  It's a great way to try out cars without having to buy them, and I figure hopefully everyone pitches in at least one good car for the community to try out.   
  
If people are interested, put down your PSN and the car(s) you'd be willing to share.    
 
Rules - It won't let you drive the cars you shared, so keep that in mind.  Chrome Cars are locked to only the CE holders.  :(
 
For myself: 
 
Share:
Tuned Mini, for Performance  
GT-86 Concept '09 
Mini Cooper '98 

PSN - KaosAngel

if you share the car do you loose said car? and if not does the other person get to keep it?

@Jackel2072: I don't think so, my buddies put up cars and they didn't say anything about losing them. 
 
Also, if someone has Stealth SLS-AMG, I put up Chrome Audi and/or Chrome BMW.

If you haven't had a go of a fully upgraded '88 Supra, I'll stick that on sharing for you and I'll have a go of that Mini :P 
 
My PSN id is Binman-88, but I seem to have been having a bit of trouble getting friends to show up in the profile/community section in game. Sometimes people show in my list, sometimes its completely empty.

Alright guys, I added in EVERY CE Chrome Car.  
 
Enjoy.

Any one want to lend me a 70's euro car and a 60's car? can't find any good ones in the used care market.

Well im pretty new to this, i would just like GT5 friends, i still have no considerable cars to share but ill get em eventually.
 
BTW my PSN is Halopower67

#8 Posted by Binman88 (3690 posts) -

If you share cars you can't use them yourself. Gonna have to earn some more money with my Supra before I can share it, sorry :( 
 
Also, I can't seem to drive any of your shared Chrome cars Kaos. I can only view them. I'd have messaged you in game but I'm shit slow at typing in game without my keyboard hooked up.

#9 Posted by KaosAngel (13764 posts) -
@Binman88: What about the other cars?

you might have to be a certain level to use them.

Hey guys,
 
I am curious, if someone shared some cars, how can I see or view or use them?  I am testing this out between me and my buddy and so far the only place that the shared car shows up is under "community"

#12 Posted by KaosAngel (13764 posts) -
@souljourner: That's where it is, go on community and their name.  If you want in on this too, feel free to add everyone here.  :) 
 
I doubt we'd all be using every 1,000 at a given time.
#13 Posted by souljourner (4 posts) -

@ KaosAngel,:  Hey, i can see  it but it doesnt allow using of the cars

#14 Edited by LutonHatter (334 posts) -

Ok, my PSN is LutonHatter

Here are the cars I currently have, if anyone wants to borrow one of them just give me a message on PSN.

You're not the only one.  I think everyone needs a truck.  :\

@KaosAngel:
Maybe I should create a new PSN id with the birthday of 27/11/04 and see if I get a Dodge RAM as a present. :D
#17 Edited by Binman88 (3690 posts) -
@KaosAngel: My other cars are kinda crappy. I have the Civic Type R I started with which is fully upgraded, I'll stick it on there. Once I've got enough money I'll buy a replacement for the Supra and share it as well.  
 Edit: Also, the Civic has a damn ridiculous spoiler on it. It was the better of the two options in GT Auto - there's unfortunately no downforce options if you just use the (far nicer) stock spoiler.
 
@PufferFiz: Hmm, that could be it. I'm at level 13 at the mo, maybe I need to be higher.

well I know even if you have the money you cant buy cars higher than your level. so maybe its that.

Just gonna add my PSN ID: eroticfishcake 
 
So far all I've put up is a stock Masarati GT. No truck yet but I'll put it up once I find one.

You can't use cars that are shared, only view them. If you want to borrow someones car to use in events, you have to get them to gift it to you, and then when you're done gift it back. You can only gift to each friend once a day.

#21 Edited by SlLENTCAPYBARA (53 posts) -

I can't believe I didn't buy this earlier. Just starting out, so any cars that anyone is willing to share, is appreciated. Hope to see everyone online! Have a good one.

I just finished the professional races and also have a Lambo and Ferrari to share for the related races.

is this true?  if so, i guess this sharing thing won't really work then eh?
 
Sounds kinda dumb IMO, if you put it as an "online car' though no one can actually drive it, including the owner.  Without any real benefit to anyone other than pure bragging rights.
#24 Edited by Devil240Z (3436 posts) -

Yeah everyone please add me. I will share.   
My PSN is the same as one here.  
 

 
I too need a damn truck. 

#25 Posted by Devil240Z (3436 posts) -

I thought the shared cars were for your shared drivers to drive in the online b spec stuff that doesn't exist yet.

#26 Posted by Skald (4370 posts) -

I just started out. PSN ID is Axolotl950. 
 
I have a squirrelly french muscle car and the '97 Civic I started with, both ~200 HP. When I get some good cars, I'll put them up there too.

#27 Posted by Morka (163 posts) -

Just started playing this game today. My PSN is Morka2k. 

Im from Europe, if that has anything to say.

#28 Posted by LutonHatter (334 posts) -

Don't suppose anyone wants to lend my B-Spec driver a GT F1 car? The Formula GT is the last race they need to complete the Extreme Series?


Oh and updated my list of cars in the post above if anyone wants to borrow any of them.

#29 Posted by crunchmonkey (259 posts) -
@LutonHatter:
I'm in the same situation. I just have to win the Formula GT series but the car isn't showing up in the Used Car Dealership... it's so damn frustrating. If/when I get it, I'll loan it to you after finishing that series.

Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 C6 RM '09 (Fully Tuned)
