Hi,

This is a link I use, so I hope it helps you. I've used it to get close to the optimal FOV, then fine-tuned it to my personal tastes from there.

Assuming that your TV is 1080P (1920x1080), it recommends 50 as your FOV.

Just remember when using the site to change it from metric to inches (if that's what measurement standard you use).

I use a Logitech keyboard, but just to send messages and for some controls on War Thunder.

For mapping PCars controls, I use this button box:http://www.ignitioncontrols.com/PC-PS4-Button-Box-Controller-p/0ps4-nb1.htm

If you ever want to try a league race, send friend invites on PSN to me, GUTTER-BOY and to cheezz_KRACKER. We have a lot of fun and have clean races, but we don't take it too seriously and we talk a lot of S4!T to each other just joking around. Here's our PCars forum link, and you can visit our website.

I adjust my FOV based on which camera view I am using. In cockpit mode, I'm at a 49 (42" 1080P TV from 40" away). I sometimes use bumper cam view on various cars and on tight tracks like Bathurst so I can judge track position better. I like a wider FOV. It at first seems to "slow" things down, but it really makes it more lifelike. In real life, things don't blur by you like you're going to Warp Speed in Star Trek. Try starting at the recommended 51, then drop it by -1/2 (25), see what that looks like. Then jump it to +1/2 (75), and see what that looks like. From that you'll know which view moves it closer or further away from what you want. So if you think 75 is the way you want to go but it's not quite perfect, try dropping it by 5s (ex: 70, 65, 60, etc.) and then fine tune it from there. It takes awhile, but you'll enjoy it more when it's set up correctly. Be sure to write down each FOV you use based on the camera just in case you ever lose your settings (or you can take a screenshot and it'll be saved on your PS4). Keep a settings notebook, as it will make tuning your car easier. When switching car series, it's nice to look at my notes and get to the right tuning set up based on the car & track practice I've done in the past.

What I do is adjust the seat position first before I touch the FOV numbers. For open wheel cars. I adjust the seat all the way down and all the way foward. Then I adjust the FOV.
