Well... modding the game a bit does the trick for me. I currently have the Ford Mustang Mach 1 Twister Special and the Nissan Silvia S15 cameras modded with cockpit views (+ a ton of other different camera views too), and even TrackIR support is there as in previous CM games:
There is no High Quality HD car interiors, but I don't really need them. For me it's all about getting the most immersive experience possible.
I think we are just some time behind the proper GRID2 experience we like. Besides cameras it seems everything else is moddable like in previous games.
In time we may end up with a kind of experience like the sadly unfinished Levman's Mod for Dirt3:
WIMBOO please drive this home to them. CODEMASTERS were a BUDGET TITLE COMPANY THAT WENT THE EXTRA MILE TO GET THEM WHERE THEY ARE NOW. NOW THEY ARE TURNING INTO A GREEDY COMPANY THAT JUST WANTS TO CUT CORNERS. IT REALLY IS A DISGRACE TO SAY THAT 5% OF GAMERS DONT MATTER!!!!!!!!!!
