I feel PD have a more serious approach to GT5, I have seen FM4 and i can say that it may look alright but it is nothing i havent seen before, I have seen a feature on FM4 that allows you to rewind a race if you crash.....Just like Race Driver: GRID. As previously said, if PD hadn't approached the Top Gear team in the first place then FM4 wouldn't of had Top Gear, they saw that it was a great idea and decided to copy i suspect but wanted to go 1 up and improve it but im not overly fussed at all about Top Gear, I just want to race like I would in real life and GT5 does offer me that. I agree that PD should introduce more updates but there only so much they can do, as for DLC, i think it is a good idea to introduce more newer cars and more classic car racing. Kaz is a race driver himself as we all know so he has the knowledge and know how to create a racing game. FM4 is more for kids who like to drive fast and have alot of assistance in driving, i always compare FM to games like NFS because i feel that FM has no resemblance to GT5. The only reason why people compare it is because FM is the only racing game Xbox has to offer which came in around 2005 which was 6 years ago and already there is 4, FM. GT5 is the first next gen racing game on the PS3 and it basically took 6 years of FM to actually get close to GT5. Xbox players love to try and knock down the PS3 anyway they can and this is perfect for Children who dont understand gaming or racing.

FM3 is more casual in my opinion. They have many great features that GT5 doesn't have like customizing car looks by decals and graphics. I don't use it, cause I am terrible at it, but it is a cool feature.
GT5 gives me much more satisfaction when it comes to realism and the car feel, FM3 gives me the opportunity to drive great cars I always wanted to like Golf MkII, DMC and others, plus some new ones I never knew I wanted to drive.

As a car enthuasist I can easily play both series, but what comes to realism part, I will always choose GT over FM, FM3 is great fun with its creative section, like paintings and tuning aswell (In GT we cant turn a FF car into AWD car and then rule the leaderboards) so as said, FM for fun, GT for better feedback.
as I made out an test between FM1-FM3 with GT5, noticed FM cars are atleast 10 seconds faster on shorter circuits, but in nurburgring it is impossible to run lap times created in real life with similar cars, tried GTR Nissan lap record in Forza, it wasnt possible to reach time of 7.30, not even close, in GT5 it is possible because there is trophy for it so all I know, PD has really put efforts for track creation so those should be as accurate as possible.
IF you are an CAR fan, you can swallow your dignitity and own both consoles so you can enjoy both series, if you're only with one console, choose its own racing game and enjoy
