Are all affinity bonuses past level 4 just credit bonuses?

Is there any special prize for reaching level 50?

I love sports. Buffalo, NY is a cool city. LA sucks though.
CNET is a joke

No. Except for the cupcake Dan Greenawalt mails you.

The cr bonuses aren't nearly worth the effort it takes to level any one manufacturer up that high either. It's really for nothing more than personal enjoyment.

Monetary wealth is never destroyed, it is merely transferred. Recessions do not happen by chance, they are planned.

Not really true. Considering I don't really spend any effort to get my Lamborghini up and I get a free 75k+ from just leveling it up once now... well... it's worth it. If they capped levels at 4 then you wouldn't get the big extra money after so many races...you'd just get piddly change and discounts on the upgrades...

It takes a ton of hours to get one car manufacturer up to level 50 for what, 150,000 credits?

You can get that many credits in about 10 minutes on rivals mode if you're halfway decent. (technically you can get 150k in a single lap if you know how to work it)

You are missing the point, along the way to 50, you will make millions off of the$75,000 per level you receive.

Even the first couple levels after 4 give decent payouts, and they're still pretty easy to get.

I think you're missing the point. I'm just saying that it's not worth it to try and focus on one manufacturer JUST for the affinity bonus. Play with whatever cars you normally would and you'll still get the bonuses along the way. Even if the credit bonuses are smaller, you'll get more of them which more than makes up for their smaller payouts.
