Yes i own both, well to tell the truth Dirt2 looked better to me, idk at least landscape/ground textures.. Car reflections are a bit weaker by Dirt2 but you can fix that too, same with shadows

cfg. in my doucments/mygames/dirt2/hardwaresettings/hardware_settings_config.cfg

<graphics_detail level="high" />
<shadows enabled="true" size="2048" maskQuality="2" /> (mask quality is 1 i think, idk atm)

<objects lod="3.0" maxlod="0" /> (is 1.5 by defaut, higher LOD distance)
<trees lod="3.0" maxlod="0" /> (is 1.5 by defaut)
<vehicles characterQuality="4" lodQuality="3" />
<envmap faces="6" size="1024" forceBilinear="false" /> (is 512 by max default, dirt3 has 1024)


Dirt3 has nice lens flare/sun fx and maps like Michigan (autumn), Norway (snow) look really good, esp. in sunny afternoon.
But if you don't buy extra maps its kinda a letdown.. Apparently they are gonna release a full edition with all extra cars and maps in February, lol i just hope my steam version gets updated too ;d
