"Permanent Borrow" trick - 2x PS3 required
« on: Nov 27, 2011, 01:07 pm »

Here's the way to get any car in the game, even those over 1mCR which are not tradeable.

(Edit: This trick will not work with DLC cars such as Stealth or Chromeline, because although they can be put online to share, you cannot actually borrow them to use...!)

You need to have access to TWO PS3's, one of which needs to be running GT5 v1.05
(this can be set by deleting the game totally, then running the game install and stopping the updates once it's at v1.05... remember to disconnect your internet connection once it's done, to stop any further updates)

Step 1:On your main PS3 (which should be now running v2.0+), borrow the car you want from somebody on your PSN friends list via the car-share feature, then save game and exit.

Step 2: Copy the gamesave from the XMB to a USB flashdrive.

Step 3: On the second PS3 (v1.05), copy your gamesave file from the USB flashdrive, then start up GT5. You will see that the "borrowed car" is not showing as red. Now go to garage and change to a different car, save the game and exit.

Step 4: Copy the gamesave file back to the USB flashdrive, and then copy it to your main PS3.

Step 5: Enjoy your newly acquired car!

Andy did you come up with this yourself?
And can I repost it somewhere?

Thanks

Sadly not my idea, it was found on t'internets (but I converted it into proper English, the original was barely readable), it's in some other forums too, but it was worth posting here, after all we are all about "cheats"...   8)

As a precaution, keep your gamesaves backed up somewhere safe before trying this, I haven't tried it myself as I already have every car, but it should be safe, it's just untested by me.

Yup, it works like a charm.
Only you cannot do it when your account has the DLC. Because you will loose that somehow..

Good Andy, now I need to figure out where to borrow a ps3, so I can get my missing Audi R8 LMS (2), Veyron (11) and a pile of Furai's :)

Cool.   8)

But I guess that once you have all the cars you want to "permanently borrow", you can then add all the DLC again later.

Am I right to assume this will not work for DLC cars?

I tried to share my stealth cars on here a few weeks ago... yes you can put them online to share, but if you try to borrow them from someone, the game won't let you, it says something like "this car cannot be borrowed"... same for the chromeline cars... so it looks like this trick won't work for those cars.


I've added the info to the main post, thanks for the reminder!   8)
