Go outside people. Fresh air is good for you
You'd be surprised at how realistic the simulations are on this game regarding comparing one car to another. The lap times end up being very similar to reality. I have a stock M3 in the game and also an M3 with roughly the same mods I've made to my car, so I can drive them back to back for comparison. The results of the mods in the game are remarkably identical to the mods in real life. I've driven a Ferrari 458, Lamborghini Aventador, and a Corvette (on a track) after driving them in Gran Turismo and I was really surprised at how unsurprised I was. Due to the game, I pretty much knew what to expect regarding what my impression of them would be.
