It's become better and better. However i still have a point of criticism, about the "Leno would be proud" achievement; it's pretty obvious as you said which manufacturers you need, it's all of them listed. But you could however go more in-depth by describing which car is the cheapest of them, for people wanting it the quickest way

Thanks for your guide! Looks ok so far!

I'd add the number of offline/online achievements:
- Offline: 32 (930 )
- Online: 8 (70 ; In The Zone, I. Am. Iron Man., Intercept & Pursue, Recommended, Paparazzi, I'm Going To Hollywood!, King of the Hill, Notorious)

For this achievement:

Alright get a friend and make a match and put the details on something no one plays. Then try to get your find to find your match. I also heard it can be done in PRIVATE matches not confirmed but worth a try. Thanks to LeMansFahRer for the information.
I can confirm LeMansFahrer's tipp.
Create an unranked private Driver Duel, Catchup Duel, Race or Time Attack with at least 2 Maximum Opponents. Invite your boosting partner and just win 5 consecutive matches.

The best way is to combine it with the 'In The Zone' and 'Intercept & Pursue' achievements. Do your 5 consecutive wins in the Catchup Duel mode and remember to be in the Helmet Cam for an entire event. After that create or join a Catchup Pack event and just complete this one, winning is not necessary.

dont think there is any point in doing that cause there is only a maximum of 20 levels. shift had about 50 i believe.

ive only done about 15% of career and im already on level 12

You'll have to achieve Iron Man when you try to get a crown (King of the Hill)...

BUT: It's not only 6 stages... they're 7!...
The Championship is another race with GT 1 cars! Don't know if you get to the first round if you lose this one (didn't found an oponent yet)...
In the Finals i had the Alpina B6 GT3 (Suzuka, Silverstone and Bathurst were the tracks if i remember correctly)
Semi-Finals Zonda Race Car
Quarter-Finals BMW M1 Procar

Good luck 2 everyone who's trying 2 get this one...

Ok... u get set back to the Quali if you lose the Championship race.. ridiculous!

Guide finished

Alright im finished. Sorry it took a couple days for King of the hill. Was trying to find any glitchy ways to make it easier on you but i failed. Tho I am finished, I will still be checking occasionally and seeing if anyone wants me to correct or add anything else. I would like to thank everyone who supported me and helped me with achievements. You have been recognized on my guide at the top. If you feel your name should be up there and i have missed you, i am sorry just tell me and i will double check and add you. I have decided i will continue making guides as long as anyone needs them.

P.S. if anyone needs help with their online achieves. Dont be afraid to ask. Just message me on my live tag. Just becuase i got them doesnt mean i wont help you.

Yeah, you also get the additional XP and Money each time.

Alright this one is simple. This one can be done on the same event 75 times . load off our shoulders. Just go to options on the main menu and gameplay. Then select hard and remember to SAVE! Do not just back out or it will not stay on hard. What i did was go to drifting and select Drifters Smokem Tour, then select the miyatomi track, and did it 75 times. U have to make 1st place for it to count. Even an amatuer drifter can make 1st on this every time with some practice first. Get a pen and paper and keep tally, do to the fact there is no way to keep track of how many you have. If you absolutey suck at drifting, just pick any level you can do, and do it over and over again.
There is a way easier and shorter Drift Event to push these wins. Go to 'Irwindale Wheels On Fire Festival', 'TOYOTA SPEEDWAY at Irwindale Oval'. The track is 2 circles long and you just have to beat a score of 153 which is absolutely no problem. I prefered the Porsche 911 GT3 Falken to finish each run as fast as possibile. Got the achievement in less than 45 minutes.

No need to dashboard it for Proving Grounds, that means you have to do the qualifying laps again. Just hit restart if you aren't going to win.

Also, set the handling to at least Experienced before going to Career, otherwise you won't be fast enough for this race.

This is a darn hard game to 1000, at least 9/10 in my opinion. Some of the corners are a bitch to master, GT3 and higher races are impossible to win, even on easy, 10 mil will take forever to accumulate... And that's on top of the online shenanigans that you will have to do. Like ah said, 9/10.

You don't have to win for the achievement (unless its one of the ones with a specific achievement tied to it, even then you don't have to win every race, just win the series overall). You just have to get a podium position to get the badge for the event. The only wins you need are 75 wins on hard and the earlier events aren't that hard and you can increase your win count by replaying the short earlier events or the drift event.

The only really hard achievement is the one for winning the online duel. Its stupid as at higher levels it takes a long time to find a game, which'll only get worse as time goes on.

There are seven stages to the driver duel championship. I have tryed dashboarding and such. But sadle this one is nonboostable and nonglitchey. You have to win 7 matches in a row, if you should lose then you will be knocked to the bottom once again.
Can definitely be boosted from around R3/QF onwards. So it is boostable.

It's hard enough now doing it legit because even while the game is still young, when you get higher up it takes forever to find a match. So then you have to somehow survive people crashing you 7 matches in a row and still come out on top, or else get dropped way back down to the bottom and await the painfully slow process of finding and winning new matches. Since supposedly you cannot back out to the dashboard anymore to avoid dropping down, if you are not a very good racer you can forget about getting this achievement on your own unless you get extremely lucky. In a month or two max (judging from how the first Shift went) it will be impossible to get this without boosting.

And the boosting with this is not as simple as it seems. From the bottom you would need 7 players minimum to do this, which will be the case when the duels dry up. It's not like you can just leapfrog up with a couple of people, it doesn't work that way. So of course one person will be able to get the achievement at a time, then you'd have to stepping stone the next guy up, drop people down to help him, etc.. This would only be made easier if you had a group of players starting from a higher round like Taki said... but the chances of that are a bit slim. In a little more time it won't be doable to get partially up the ladder legitly to make things easier once the activity dries up further. Then it's the logistics of organizing who plays who, where everyone is in the round pyramid.... who still needs the achievement, who needs to go back down to help the next guy... well actually I guess the best way is to drop everyone each time and start from scratch. Also, and I'm just thinking about this now. lol Even if everyone happened to start at round 3 which would supposedly allow you to have a smaller group, well not everyone in that smaller group would be able to get the achievement. The bottom couple of players would always be left behind in the 3rd 4th 5th rounds etc.... then those who get the achievement would have to of course drop down to the 1st round... and then of course multiple players would have to work their way up back to the 3rd round starting point... etc.... so yea, unless you have some good samaritans at the bottom happy and willing to boost others up and not worry about themselves... you'll always need at least 7 people for everyone to get it.

Sure, it's not rocket science, but anyone who has boosted with a group before knows that it's hard enough getting 2 people on the same page let alone 5 6 or 7. There are ALWAYS people who can't focus to save their life. lol Don't even get me started on the person or people in said boosting group who will inevitably refuse to use a mic. :-p There is always one guy!

So that achievement alone raises the 1000g completion bar beyond 5/10.

...

... and that's why i've boosted it with one friend only + 5 backup accounts (with gold trials). It took 9 hours and 191 matches (starting from a scratch) to boost this achievement for me and a friend.

Ha! Great job dude, that is some dedication. I have a backup plan as well in case it dies sooner than expected. I've gotten to the finals round beneath the championship round on my own on 3 separate accounts and am holding them there (I can't go higher since no one ever joins). So if need be I'll rent a second copy of shift (already have a spare xbox) and boost it easy from there. We'll see...

If you missed proving grounds at your carrer start (like me) you have to transver (not copy) your save game to (usb)memoryunit and plug off the MU -> so you can start a new carrer - after you have beaten the race - you can delete this save - and transfer the one from MU back to HDD

Yup that works well. Also, even easier, as 'wondercaliban' said in another thread, you can simply just not select a save device when prompted. This will start a new game automatically, get the achievement, then back out and load the original save as usual. No usb necessary.

Thanks for giving me a rough idea of what needs to be done with the achievements, all these video guides n stuff are all well n good but sometimes it sucks the fun from earning them. You can't exactly write an indepth guide about how to master every corner in the game or how to select day or night ect... They're all simple achievements.

With the King of the Hill an alternate method is to get your main account up as high as you feel comfortable. I managed to get to semis legit before the noobs came out in force. I have boosted it up to Final.

Get 1 back up account. Yes just 1. Try and get it up as high as you can. If you fail so be it...its not your main account just keep trying until you get it high enough. Even get a friend to play guinea pig so you can get the cheevo and then you repay the favor.

Someone said you need 7 accounts to boost all the way. Actually you need 8 because you need 1 to win and lose at Q1 plus 1 parked at the next 6 levels. You can do it with 7 if the very last person can win Q1 legit.

I have 5 accounts going, a friend 2 and 2 other friends. So we have 9 in total and I may be adding another and a second copy of the game. All for 10 friggin g.

I said this on another forums that I think its the least thought through game mode by a dev for a racing game ever.

191!? But if you had you, a friend and 5 accounts then it shouldn't have taken that many.

1+2+3+4+5+6+7=56 races for one championship, x2 (so your friend can get it as well = 112.

Actually thats still alot of races. Think I'll give this one a miss.

Eduardo I sent you a message over xbox live. I have 4 accounts in the final round which I got legit, but it was the most frustrating thing in the world because each time I had to survive through constant demolition derbies. I refuse to keep going and possibly dropping down to the bottom so I'm ready to boost. I can get you to the championship round easily and if you can do the same for me, let's finish this up. This offer goes to anybody. I'm not against helping more than one person even after I get the achievement, as I have the accounts necessary (although some of the one month trials are running out so you'll need to act quickly).

I think you're wrong.

When all accounts starting from round 1 you need 63 matches to boost 1st account up to the final (no achievement yet), than another 63 matches to boost 2nd account up to the final, match #127 is the achievement for account #1, than you need another 63 matches to boost 2nd account again, finally match #191 is the achievement for for account #2.

The number of matches can be cut down to 128 if you have someone in the final already who will pass you the crown when you reach there with account #1.

Yeah, you're right. I don't know what's the 10 GS more, the effort of getting through 191 matches, or the effort of working out the permutations to boost it.

FYI for Elitist you don't even need an opponent. I was just testing a car on a circle track with 0 opponents and still got the achievement.
