I dont like a couple of them...

For example, finishing backwards on a ranked race, beating an ea moderator or the one where you fill your garage with ONLY one type of car...

Some of them seem like a drag to do, while the other ones just came as you beat the game...

Ya I agree there are some weird ones, but NFSC's achievements are a lot better then Most Wanted's. You actually have to do more things to get them, more replay value to the game

Looks like they've put all the need for speed's together, but how on earth are you going to beat an ea guy, it would be hard enough to find him let alone beat him and if someone get's the game after a year he's not going to be playing anymore. Also the online ranked one I hate as it'll take so long to get on a rubbish game. Finally, I might be one in a million but I hate pursuits, unless they have another bus stop glitch, I'll never get those achievements.

Garage Full of Cars

Hey all found a really easy way to get the Muscle Head, Tuner Addict, and Exotic Aficionado, if your willing to spend 240 MS points. Go and download the "free" cars from xbox live you'll need to do this even if you have the CE onceyou download the go and find the nearest auto lot and fill up your garage with for example the Nissan Skyline, they do not cost anything to buy. Go back to your garage and sell all of them except for one go back to the auto lot and start with the next class. Rinse and repeat. Cheers

They dont cost anything to buy, but do you get money for selling them?

If anyone is having trouble with the showboat achievement, try doing it in a Challenge Series Sprint race. Then when you race online next, it give you the achievement at the conclusion of the race. Easy way to get what might be a hard achievement normally. I'm sorry if this has been posted somewhere.

It depends what level you are currently, and what place you finish in. The higher the better. On the disabling part, get your heat down low, find the cops (in free-roam), smash into them when they are perpendicular (sideways) to your car on the non-engine side and escape. Take it slow and organized, use pursuit blockers when you can, and you should have it in no time.

You can get 2 in 1 at roadblocks, just hit them in the middle if the are pointed opposite each other. Just watch out before you come to them, then just use nos to mash em up.

I heard from someone that the Urban Battle has been fixed. Seeing as I only have 12 urban battle victories, I wanted to know if anyone else had heard this before I waste my time getting the other 38.

To those that unlocked the 1,000,000 achievement, how much money can you spend to be able to still unlock this? I just started a new career to get this achievement (as well as a couple of others like owning the muscle cars etc) but i just wanted to make sure, cause i still have the stock car and managed to beat wulf, but am now struggling to keep up on the 2nd 'island'.... i need to upgrade or else i dont think i'll be able to do it. i didnt manage to get the pink slip to wulf's car.... which sucks.... any help appreciated.

You need to escape to get credit for the damage done

can someone give me any advice when trying to evade the police after 12 mins i can get chased easy for 12 mins but just cant seem to get away from the police by the time iv reacher 13 or 14 mins my heat level is upto 5 and iv got no chance of getting away, im guessing its all down to skill at the end of the day so i must be not very good lol but any advice would be great and also whats the quickest way to earn money to get the 1000000 dollar achievemnt, is it possible to buy cars xbox marketplace and sell them in ur career to pump ur money up or will i just have to complete races

I did it early in the game, like the guide suggested. I don't think I ever hit a lvl 5 heat during the 12min run. Early in the game the heat level goes up slowly compared to later in the game.
