For anyone wanting to enter this, if you don't wanna hurt your own cars (and therefore have to spend CR to repair them), then just "borrow" cars from people via online sharing feature (where any damage is non-permanent, it's repaired free when you change to another car) or do it in arcade mode...   ;)

I dont see why cr would be a problem for some members, I have read lots of stories  on the forum when members have too much cr and keep looking for excuses to use them

It's not really a problem as such, but maybe people don't wanna trash a car for a photo then spend CR to repair it... but as pointed out, it's not necessary to go down that route, just borrow a car or use arcade mode.

Since when do you have to pay to fix your car? I haven't played in a while, but last I checked, I could bash a car up pretty well and it would be back to normal as soon as I exited the race..  ???

Well, specifically "chassis maintenance" in "GT Auto" is the only thing. If you smash yer car up a lot in career mode, you'll notice it will start handling strangely when you use it next time... cosmetically, the repairwork is done free of charge, but the damaged chassis remains there until you repair it.

It's both high mileage and accidents/bumps that contribute.  8)

I tried and tried, but my efforts amounted to naught last night. I trie a few different circuits but the best I got was a flying lambo over the hills.
 
Even slamming my veyron head on into the first chicanes barricade left minimal damage to it :(
 
Oh well I will try again tonight ;D

Apparently the rally cars show damage really well. Try one of them?
