Introduction
Welcome to Forza Horizon, the combination of a traditional Forza approach to simulator racing with the action elements of an arcade racer, to bring you an open world, free roam, action racer. Forza Horizon centers around the Horizon festival set in a fictional version of Colorado where drivers compete against one another to be ultimately crowned the Forza Horizon Champion.

The story is your traditional nobody to superstar that requires you to compete in a variety of racing events to prove yourself and move up the ranks. Anyone from novice racing players to Forza veterans will be able to pick up and play through the game without too much trouble. With the added option of difficulty assists, Forza Horizon is a relative simple game to pick up, play and earn the full 1000.

Single Player
The single player will take you through the Horizon Festival, and will require you to complete all races and events. The majority of achievements will unlock naturally as you progress through the story and work your way up the ranks in becoming the Forza Horizon Champion. In addition to this you will also be required to complete sponsor challenges and rival events at your own leisure. The other achievements are collectibles related to the free roam aspect of the game. 

Depending on how you play, the single player portion can be completed in an average 25-30 hours and will net you 38/50 achievements.

The following is the list of cars you will win throughout the festival, to avoid you buying them earlier and wasting the money: (Credit to gw2 for the list)

Showcase Events 

  • Chevrolet Corvette Gran Sport Coupe
  • Fiat 500 Abarth
  • Classic Mustang Mach 1
  • Aston Martin One-77
  • Classic Mini
  • Audi Quattro
  • Peugot 205 Turbo
  • Ferrari F40
  • RUF RGT-8
  • Laborghini Aventador LP700-4

Rival Showdowns

  • Ford SVT Raptor
  • Dodge Challenger SRT8 392
  • LamborghininDiablo SV
  • Nissan GT-R
  • Lexus LF-A
  • Saleen S7
  • Ferrari 599XX

Multiplayer
Multiplayer consists of three different game types, traditional races, playground games and free roam. There are achievements related to all 3 types and overall progression achievements. The achievements may be quicker to boost with friends but are just as simple playing with randoms as they require you to complete events opposed to winning them. 

Most of the multiplayer achievements are fairly easy to unlock and won’t take any longer then a couple of hours. The exception may be ‘OMGWT*BBQ’ as this is entirely luck based but unless you are extremely unlucky, this will come naturally as you work towards level 25.

Conclusion
Overall Forza Horizon is an easy game to unlock the full 1000. Even if you are new to racing games, the array of difficulty options makes this a simple pick up and play game. The individual achievements are neither a bore nor a grind so chances are you will unlock the majority, if not all, of the achievements naturally as you progress through the game. Just be warned, you will need a FM3 or FM4 save file to unlock the full 1000.

 

DLC: Rally Expansion Pack

Introduction:
Experience the thrill and danger of rally in epic new stages that push you and your cars to the limit as your co-driver alerts you to severe terrain changes and hazards ahead. Race 5 new iconic rally cars or create your own dirt-eating machines with new rally upgrades that can be applied to any car in your Forza Horizon garage. Challenge friends and rivals in new online rally modes and earn 10 new achievements.

Step 1: Play through the events:
The Rally DLC has 7 events to be played which all consist of 4 stages. I would suggest just to race normally through the events and not worry about getting achievements yet. You could keep in mind to not crash or use rewind for "Flawless Victory" while going through events but you can also do it after you have become the Rally champion. You will gain these achievements without even paying attention to them:

  • "Now that's a Special Stage"
  • "Covered in Mud and Glory"
  • "Take her for a Power Slide"
  • "Horizon Rally Champion"
  • "Mile High Club"
  • "(Flawless Victory)"


Step 2: Rivals and Harder Driving:
Now you should finish up the 5 Rival events for "Rally Rivals" and then concentrate on "Harder Driving." The latter is definitely not easy but you can get it with a little patience and practice. It took me about an hour of retrying and learning the track to nail it down.

Refer to the achievement guide to see more details on these two achievements.

Step 3: Online and mop up:
Finally you should go for the online wins and see if you are still missing any miscellaneous achievements from the single player and finish them off.

If you are looking for a partner to do the online wins see this thread:http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=408525.

You might for example have "High Five!" and/or "Flawless Victory" left to do. Refer to the achievement guide to see how to get them.

Conclusion:
The Rally expansion brings a little different angle to Forza racing. All in all I personally liked how they brought the rally upgrades to the cars and to even multiplayer. The achievements are not too easy which is suitable for a Forza title but they are not too hard either. A balanced DLC content for a little bit too high price tag.

 

DLC: 1000 Club Pack

Introduction:

Welcome to the guide and roadmap for the 1000 Club DLC pack for Forza Horizon. This free DLC adds a new dimension to the game, with every single car given five or six challenges to gain medals. These range from simple burnouts to timed runs, but each car has at least one very simple medal challenge which makes this a very easy DLC to get done.

You will need to get medals for 146 different cars, including a certain amount for different makes (Ferrari, Lamborghini, BMW, Shelby, Nissan & Ford), and 20 British cars. Although this DLC in itself is free, you will need to download at least the following to have enough cars to unlock all the achievements:

November Car Pack (400 MSP)
2002 BMW M3 GTR (April Pack) - Free sample car
1998 Nissan R390 (March Pack) - Free sample car
Any additional Ford (240 MSP)

If you have downloaded the Rally Pack, or have the collectors edition you do not need to get the additional Ford. If you have the season pass this will be quicker as there are many more cars to choose from.

Getting The Medals

If you are just starting the game, it is recommended to focus on completing the main game before worrying about the medals, as many of them will come naturally when playing through. When buying cars, where you can, buy ones from the manufacturers that are tied to achievements. Once you have everything else done, go on a spending spree and buy as many cars you can from the manufacturers needed. You can either continue racing and own them all, or you can sell once you have the medal and buy more. You do not need to own every car in the game, just get a medal with 146 of them, so you can sell cars and buy new ones as many times as you like.

Mop Up & Conclusion

All the achievements are tied to medals, so your mop up will most likely be selling and buying cars until you have a medal with 146 of them. This is a great DLC, which for those you had already completed it gives a new challenge, or to those who have just started adds another element to the game.

Welcome to Horizon10
You arrived at Horizon Festival raring to go. (7) 

Start a new single player game and once you are in control of your car, follow the green line on your HUD map until you arrive at the Horizon Festival and the achievement will unlock.

Take Her for a Spin!15
You bought a car from the Autoshow. Now take her for a spin! (2) 

After you have completed the heat events, you are instructed to buy an AWD car for an offroad event. You will be given the option of either a WRX sti or a 10’ Evo. Once you purchase the car, the achievement will unlock. You don’t need to worry about credits as you will already be given enough to cover the purchase. 

...and across the line!10
You competed in your first race at Horizon. (2) 

After you have arrived at the Horizon Festival, you will be given access to the first heat race. Simply complete the race in any position and the achievement will unlock. 

First!20
You won your first race at Horizon. (1) 

This can be done with any race you participate in but requires you to come in first place. This will likely unlock naturally as you progress through the game but if you are struggling, set the difficulty to easy and turn on all assists including the rewind option. 

Born Slippy10
You've won your first Mixed-Surface or Dirt Race. (2) 

This can be done on any dirt or mixed surface race but requires you to win. To check whether an event is dirt or mixed surface, open the map, highlight an event icon and press . This will inform you of the surface type. There is no shortage of dirt or mixed surface events throughout the game so this should come naturally. If you are struggling, set the AI difficulty to easy and turn on all assists. 

WARNING!!! DANGER TO MANIFOLD15
You've won 10 Street Races. Ali would be proud. (4) 

Street races are first unlocked after you complete your first green wristband event. These are different to Festival Events in that you race for large sums of money instead of wristband progression. The street race hubs will be indicated by a ‘money’ icon on your map and you will need to drive to the location marked. 

Unlike festival races, street races will include traffic, so be sure to keep your eyes open and stick to the right side of the road is approaching a crest, as hitting a car could cost you first place. Also note that the tracks aren't closed off, meaning it's possible to miss a turn or side street, so pay close attention to your map and the blue spotlight/checkpoints. In street races the other racers will often cut corners and appear to be more aggressive than Festival races, so try and keep your distance if possible.

Each race you win will be marked with a ‘1st’ icon on the race ticket. Once you win 10 different street races the achievement will unlock. To make this easy, set AI difficulty to easy and turn on all assists.
#WINNING!15
You've dominated 10 Festival Races. (5) 

Festival races are the main races in Horizon and will be indicated on you map with a coloured outline corresponding to the minimum wristband level you need to enter them. Each has certain class/model/drive setup restrictions to enter. Once you have an event highlighted on the map, drive to its location and enter it. You need to win the race for it to count, once you have won 10 races the achievement will unlock. This will likely unlock naturally as you progress through the game but to make it easier, set the AI difficulty to easy and turn on all assists. 

NOTE: It seems this achievement is slightly glitched and doesn't count the first event even if you win it. If you placed first on the first event, this will unlock after winning your 11th race.
Close Encounters20
You've challenged and beaten 10 festival racers on the spot. (3) 

Festival racers are the NPC cars you will encounter while free roaming on the streets of Colorado. They are easy to identify as they have the racer’s name above the car. To challenge them you need to drive up behind their car until the challenge option appears. The class of car you are driving and the car they are driving will determine the difficulty. So it may be best to attempt this in a higher class car and only engage slow/ lower class cars.

Either way once the challenge option appears, press  to begin the race. 

The route will be highlighted on you HUD map but it is also a good idea to check your overall map as sometimes the highlighted route may not be the most effective route to take. Once you have beaten your 10th racer, the achievement will unlock. To make this easier, only engage ‘easy’ racers and turn on all assists.
Lawbreaker10
You blasted past 5 speed traps and 5 speed zones. (2) 

Speed zones and speed traps are placed throughout Colorado and you will likely uncover them naturally as you journey throughout the map going from event to event and working towards other achievements. Once you have driven past each zone or trap, it will appear as a camera icon on you map so you can keep track of your progress. (Speed traps will be a grey icon and speed zones will be a yellow icon) 

All that is required for the achievement is to pass by a speed trap or through a speed zone, you don't need to set any record. Once you have passed through 5 different zones and traps the achievement will unlock.

DEG23 credits Cr4zyFroggg & theDonJose for the map showing the location of all Speed Zones and Traps across Colorado

NOTE: You need to drive between the 2 camera posts as driving outside of the posts will not register a speed or show on the map.

Vendetta20
You've beaten a Rival time in 10 events. (11) 
Each time you complete a race or event, you will given the option to then race the same track against a rival (either a friend or random on XBL.) Friends who have set a faster time will be displayed first, however if you don’t have any friends who have set faster times, you will usually be given a rival who is only a fraction of a second ahead of you making it easier to beat their time. You can usually tell how difficult it will be by the number of credits offered as a reward, the higher the credit reward, the harder it will be. 

If you are given a rival that you don’t think you can beat, you can always access the rivals menu from the Horizon Festival loop and manually select a rival you believe you can beat. 

An easy method to complete this is by purposely setting a slow time on a lap then finding a rival who is only a fraction of a second faster than you and beating their time. Once you have beaten a rival on 10 different events the achievement will unlock.

TIP: You don’t need to beat the same rival over 10 events, but you need to beat a rival time on 10 different events.

NOTE: The monthly rival events you can access from the rival menu do not count towards this achievement. (DEG23 credits SatNiteEdurado for this info.)

NOTE: Unlike most other online achievements that require XBL, this does not require a Gold account to complete. (DEG23 credits TwistedFate for confirming this.)
Been There, Done That!10
You've fully explored the Horizon Festival Loop. (1) 

To unlock this all you need to do is visit all 6 locations at the Horizon Festival. Simply drive to each one and press  to enter. After you have visited the 6th, the achievement will unlock. You need to enter each location as driving past it will not count.

Rave Paint10
You created a paintjob and your ride is looking SWEET! (2) 

You can enter the paint shop at either the main Festival loop, or at a Horizon outpost. The easiest way to unlock this is to select the option to paint your car, select a new color, press  to save it and the achievement will unlock. 

Wheelin' 'n Dealin'10
You sold something via your Storefront. KERCHING! (290) 

Once you have created a design or vinyl group and saved it, you will be given the option to upload it to the storefront. You need to sell it as sharing it will not count towards the achievement. Once someone downloads it you will receive an in game message you have credits waiting. Download the available credits, and the achievement will unlock.

May The Forza Be With You10
You received free cars for being a loyal Forza fan! (56) 

This will require either a FM3 or FM4 save file located on either your hard drive or the cloud. You need to have reached at least level 1 in either game for the achievement to unlock. 

After you have completed the heat events and received your yellow wristband, you will be receive a popup message notifying you that you have ‘loyalty cars available.’ Go to the garage and select ‘Change Car,’ accept the gift cars and the achievement will unlock. Be sure to accept the gift cars, if you select ‘No Thanks’ you will not receive the cars or the achievement.
 
If you have started Horizon before creating a FM3 or FM4 save file you can always start a new Horizon career from a new storage device (eg, the cloud) and repeat the steps above. 

(DEG23 credits NeedToAchieve for the video guide showing how to unlock this after you have already started a Forza Horizon game)

One to Watch10

Notorious30
You're the most popular driver at Horizon. (11) 

This will require you to climb the popularity ranks by showing off your tricks and skills. Each trick will net you a base score then continue to tally the longer you hold the trick, eg drifting will net you a beginning score of 100, then the longer you drift, the higher the point tally climbs. 

Stringing together multiple tricks will not only add to your running tally but also increase your final multiplier by 0.1 so stringing together multiple tricks in the one combo is the key to ranking up quickly. Depending on your driving style, chances are you will find yourself ranking up without too much effort as most tricks can be achieved as you not only race but also as you drive around Colorado.

The following are the main tricks that allow you to score points and rank up.
  • Drift
  • E-drift
  • Two Wheels
  • Air
  • Near Miss
  • Speed
  • Pass
  • Drafting
  • Wrecking
TIP: An easy place to score big points quickly is the golf course located near Montano Plains. The open spaces and contours make this easy to string together multiple tricks like Drifting, Air, Two wheels, Kangaroo, Pedal to the Metal, and more, without having to worry about crashing into other drivers and obstacles. Using a RWD car with traction control turned OFF will make many of the tricks like drifting easier while on the golf course.

(DEG23 credits basti memphis for the map showing the location of the golf course)

NOTE: While you can lightly bump into other cars and obstacles without losing your combo, smashing into an obstacle and losing a great deal of speed will void your combo. So hit the brakes if you feel yourself losing control to save the points you have instead or trying to wrestle with the car to string together additional tricks.

Golden Boy50
You received the Golden Wristband. (3) 

Each Festival race offers wristband points depending on how you place, (the higher you place, the more points you will be awarded with.) These points are used to progress through the different coloured wristbands and open new events. As this is the means of progressing the game, you will unlock each wristband naturally as you progress through the game. 

You can always revisit any event you have previously completed if you did not come first, and try again to unlock the remaining points. Any festival event you have won will have a gold trophy next to the icon on the map, making it easier to identify what events you can win and earn additional points in. As the number of points you can earn is based on your overall position, set the AI difficulty to easy and turn on all assists.

To unlock the next wristband and its associated achievement, you need to drive to the race central bay in the Horizon loop after obtaining each new level.

Darius Who?100
You owned Darius Flynt and became the Horizon Festival champion. (3) 

This will require you to have completed the majority of the gold level races. Once you have reached the required points, the 'Horizon Final' event will be available. The race is just like any other festival event where you race against 8 cars, one of them being Darius. Although you are required to complete 5 laps, the circuit isn't all that long or difficult. If you find yourself struggling to win, be sure to race on easy difficulty and turn on all assists. Once you win the race, the achievement will unlock. 

Hard Driving10
You finished in first place on HARD? Nice. (12) 

This can be done on any race but will require you to set the overall difficulty to HARD. Even if you aren’t the greatest at driving games, this isn’t all that difficult as it still enables many of the driver assists including the rewind feature, so don’t be afraid to rewind if you make mistakes along the way. Once you win the race the achievement will unlock.

All Your Race Are Belong to Us30
You've won every single race in the game! (9) 

This requires you to win all Festival events, Street races, Showcase events and Showdowns. There are 117 races in total and you need to win them all for the achievement to unlock. The majority of these events will be won as you progress through the game so there shouldn't be too much mopping up/grinding to do.

You can check how many events you have won via the 'Stats' tab in the 'My Profile' menu. You can also check on what events you haven't won by viewing each event via the map. Any event won will have a gold trophy icon next to it. 

To make this achievement easier, select the AI difficulty to easy and turn on all assists.

Stuntman25
You've completed every Horizon Outpost PR Stunt. (20) 

There are 10 outposts scattered throughout the map and each outpost will have 3 PR events to complete. These include hitting a certain speed at a speed trap, amassing a set number of points pulling of tricks or taking a photo at a specified location. Each event will supply you with a car in which to complete it, so there is no need to worry about credits and buying new cars. 

Speed Traps: These are quite easy to reach the required speed. The main problem is the NPC cars you have to dodge whist gaining speed. Don't forget, unlike previous Forza games you can verge off road and not lose a great deal of speed. Also if you are driving manual, try and change up gear well before you hit the speed trap.

Photo Shoot: This is the easiest of the 3, simply drive to the location and snap a photo of your car with the required landmark in the background. It doesn't have to be a masterpiece and Alice will tell you if you haven't included enough of the landmark. Just be sure to drive carefully on the way, as significant damage to your car will cause you to fail.

-Trick Challenge: This is the hardest of the 3 as it requires you to perform various tricks along a preset route. Each challenge will have a target score and a time limit, but the key to this will be stringing tricks together. A general rule to follow is to focus on passing and wreckage tricks on straights, and drifting tricks in corners. Just remember that crashing into any obstacle and losing a great deal of speed will void the score. You do not need to reach the target score within a single combo so if at any time you feel yourself losing control, brake to score the points, then start on a new combo.

As drifting will be the main way of earning points and stringing tricks together, here are some drifting tips to make these stunts easier. (Credit to theDonJose for originally posting these)
 

  • Manual Transmission is a must. 2nd and 3rd gear are your friends on most cars.
  • E-Brake constantly. Tapping the e-brake then giving a lot of gas will throw the ass end of the car out to start the drift.
  • Feather the gas. Feathering the throttle will usually keep the drift going. You rarely want to be full throttle. But you also want to keep enough speed to keep your forward momentum.
  • Unless you are on a curve, steering should only be used to make minimal adjustments. Steer into the drift but using the throttle will do more to correct your driving line most of the time.
  • It's all about balancing throttle and steering. You want just enough slip to keep the wheels spinning, but not too much that you lose traction and spin out.

These may take some practise to master but overall are not too difficult. Once you have completed all 30 stunts, the achievement will unlock.

Kudos to You10
You've completed 5 Sponsorship challenges. 

-See ‘Sellout’ 

Sellout20
20 Sponsorship Challenges? Now you're popular and rich! 

The sponsorship challenges consist of a number of ranks tied directly to performing an individual trick, the same tricks that increase your popularity. The different ranks define the number of times the trick must be performed in order to complete each challenge. 

Despite the achievement description, each rank counts a 1 challenge, e.g. reaching rank 4 of the drifting sponsorship challenge will count as 4 challenges completed. You can check your status any time in the 'My Profile' menu. 

Most of these will unlock naturally as you progress through the game and raise your popularity, so you will complete 20 in no time. Also be aware that any tricks you do in multiplayer also count towards this achievement. 

Barn This Way5
You found your first barn find. (8) 

While progressing through the game you will receive word from Alice from time to time that there are rumors of a barn find. Once you have been notified, open up your map to find a grey circle showing the rough location of the barn. You will need to search within the grey circle until you locate the barn. Once you find it, drive up to the entrance and the achievement will unlock.

The barns are usually easy to spot and all look like this:

NOTE: The location of what barn will produce the next car will be random. You will also need to wait until you receive notification of the rumoured find, as driving to a barn beforehand will not work.

(DEG23 credits NeedToAchieve for the video guide showing the barn locations and the cars within.)

Bargain Shopper10
You bagged yourself a nice discount. (3) 

-See ‘Black Friday’ 

Black Friday20
Never pay for an upgrade again! (13) 

Discount signs are the pink and black signs with the word ‘Discount’ written on them. There are a total of 100 signs scattered throughout the map and for the most part are located on the sides of roads in clear view. Each sign you pass by in free roam will be added to your map as a pink dot. After smashing through a sign it will change to a black dot to let you know you have collected it. Chances are you will discover the majority of these as you progress through the game and work towards ‘Road Trip’. 

(DEG23 credits theDonJose, gw2 & NeedToAchieve for the map and discount sign locations.)

TIP: When looking for signs on your map, be sure to change the filter to display only discount signs as often then can be hidden under other icons.

NOTE: Any sign you pass by while in a race or event, will not be added to your map so if you spot one, it is a good idea to make smashing through it a priority after the race in case you forget.

Road Trip25
You've driven along every road in the entire game. (19) 

This will require you to drive along all 216 roads. Each time you drive along a road you will not only receive a popup confirmation but the road on your map will either turn white (hard surface) or orange (dirt surface.) At any time you can check the number of roads you have driven by checking the ‘Discovery’ tab in the ‘My Profile’ menu.

You will drive along the majority of roads as you progress through the game but chances are there will be a few that can be missed. In this event, remember to look closely at the map and be sure to turn off all other icons. Many of the roads in and around towns can be short and difficult to miss so try searching around these locations. Be sure to drive along on and off ramps to the freeways and the roads that pass underneath.

TIP: Any roads driven along in both rival events and online modes count towards this achievement.

Still a Noob...10
10 online races complete‚Ķ not bad! (5) 

-See ‘Noob No More’ 

Noob No More20
25 online races complete‚Ķ awesome! (6) 

This needs to be done online and can be done in either a public or private match. You also need to select either circuit, point-to-point or street race, as the other modes will not count. An easy way to achieve this is to create a new match, select circuit and pick a very short track. Set laps to 1 and race yourself. Once you have completed 25 races, the achievement will unlock.

NOTE: Racing by yourself will not earn you any XP as you require at least one other player to do so.

Playground Games5
You completed each of the Playground game types. How fun was that? 

-See ‘Swings and Roundabouts’ 

Swings and Roundabouts20
You've completed 3 of each Playground game types. 

The 3 playground game types consist of ‘Infected,’ ‘King,’ and ‘Cat and Mouse.’ You will need to complete each game type 3 times for the achievement to unlock. Each can be easily boosted with a friend by setting the time limit/track size to the minimum and then, depending on the event, letting the time run out or by finishing the minimum laps. It doesn’t matter what position you finish in, as long as you complete the event. 

Click HERE to find people to boost this with.

Cruise Club20
You've completed 10 free roam challenges online. (241) 

This needs to be done in online free roam and will require at least one other person. You can access the free roam challenges via the start menu. 

Challenges include, driving from point to point in a certain make or value of car, having all players hit a speed trap at a certain speed and within a certain time limit, pulling off a combined number of tricks, or driving a combined total distance. 

It is entirely up to you what challenges you complete but once you have completed 10, the achievement will unlock.

You got to Level 5 online. 

-See ‘Just Me and the XP’ 

Just Me and the XP10
You've reached level 25 online. Did you win a car yet? (2) 

Each time you complete an online event you will earn XP towards leveling up. Your total XP will depend on the following four factors:

  • Overall position
  • Mileage
  • Number of people in the game (the more people, the higher your multiplier will be)
  • Trick bonus (the more ticks you pull off, the higher your multiplier. Caps at 1.5)

You will need to earn a total of 260,000 XP to reach level 25. Obviously the better you perform, the more people you have in each game and the higher you get your trick multiplier, the faster you will rank up.

Click HERE to find people to boost this with. 

TIP: If you are working through all the other MP achievements with other people, you will probably be around lvl 22, from here just play games of Infected until you hit 25.

Infected offers the most XP per time spent playing as these games can be over in a matter of minutes and as long as you place in the top 3 you can earn up to 6500 XP per game.

You won your first car online. (1)

OMGWT*BBQ!?20
You got seriously lucky and won 5 cars online. (17) 

Every time you rank up a level you will be offered either a car or a sum of credits as a reward. It is a slot machine style outcome so this will be entirely luck based. The payout of either money or cars is fairly even, so you should have no trouble winning 5 cars on your way to level 25.

 
 
DLC: Rally Expansion Pack
Cost: $19.99 USD Achievements: 10 Points: 250
 
Now that's a Special Stage20
Complete your first Horizon Rally stage. (1) 

This is the first achievement you will get from this DLC. When going from the Main Menu of Forza Horizon to "Horizon Rally", you will end up in a blue Subaru driving in the middle of the woods. Just complete the race and you get the achievement. Doesn't matter what is your position in the finish.

Covered in Mud and Glory20
Win a Horizon Rally. 

A Rally consists of 4 stages. In each stage you will race alone against other drivers' time. Just like in real Rally. In order to win the whole Rally, you need to have the fastest overall time counted together from all 4 stages. So don't worry if you don't win every stage, you can catch up in the next one. Setting the difficulty to easy and turn on all assists will make this easier.

Take her for a Power Slide20
Obtain your first Horizon Rally car. (1) 

After your first race you will need to buy the Mitsubishi Lancer for 20.000 CR. That will be your very first rally car and the achievement will unlock.

Horizon Rally Champion75
Become the Horizon Rally Champion. (3) 

There are 7 Rally events in the DLC and each of them have 4 stages. At first you need to complete and win the 6 Rally events in order to unlock the Final Rally. Same goes here: if you fail to win a stage, you can catch up in time on the next one so don't worry about winning each and every stage. You just need to win all Rallies. Again, to make this easier, set the difficulty to easy and turn on all assists.

Harder Driving25
Win a Rally stage on Hard opponent difficulty without using automatic shifting or the Driving Line. (29) 

When you start a race, you need to press  and go to the Difficulty menu and change the options to match the requirements needed as described in the achievement description. Here are the options so you don't miss a thing:

Braking: ABS ON
Steering: Normal
Traction control: ON
Shifting: Manual
Driving line: OFF
Cosmetic damage: ON
Rewind: ON
Opponent difficulty: HARD

NOTE: If you only put the "Game difficulty" on HARD setting, it won't count, since it leaves shifting to "Automatic" and driving line to "Braking only".
NOTE2: You CAN use rewind to help you if you feel the need for that. You might confuse it to be not allowed since the other options will be on hard but it is very usable.

Here is a detailed video guide by Maka:

Mile High Club10
Get a total of 1609 metres of air in Horizon Rally events. (2) 

This is cumulative. You will get this during natural gameplay. I got this after "Montano Plains - Stage 2". If you feel the need to track this, you can press  during a race and go to "My Profile" and "Statistics".

Rally Rivals20
Complete 5 Horizon Rally events in Rivals mode. (13) 

When you finish a Rally (all 4 stages) you can replay the stages and press  to bring up the rivals mode. From there you will be given an opponent who has driven the race faster than you. You can make it even easier for yourself by changing the opponent and changing the filter of the leaderboards to everyone and choose the first guy above you. Shouldn't be too hard if you can beat your own time.

Every stage counts for this achievement, you don't need to win the whole rally for it to count. Also note that you need to beat your rival. The achievement description is misleading when it says "complete". If you lose, it doesn't count.

Ghostbuster25
Win 10 Horizon Rally stages in online multiplayer. (118) 

This needs to be done with at least 2 players. You can see the Achievement Trading Thread here:http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=408525 for people who are looking to boost in Private match.

Fastest way is to use standard settings (all stages) because you only need to win a stage for the achievement, not the whole Rally. So for 10 wins for both persons is doable in 5 games with 4 stages. "The Clear Springs Rally" seems to be the shortest Rally.

Flawless Victory15
Win a Horizon Rally stage without crashing or using rewind. (4) 

Your best bet is to set the rewind to OFF from difficulty menu so if you press the rewind button by accident, it doesn't ruin your chances at this achievement. If you crash, you can restart the race and try as many times as you'd like. I got this achievement in "North Plains - Stage 2" while driving the Ford Escort. Another easy stage is "Beaumont - Stage 2".

High Five!20
Purchase all five Horizon Rally cars. (7) 

This DLC gives you five (5) more cars to race in Forza Horizon. You need to buy all of them with in-game credits or tokens. The cars you need for this achievement, from cheapest to most expensive:

- 1992 Toyota Celica GT-Four RC ST185 [D-254] - 7.000 CR
- 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX Sti [B-452] - 18.000 CR
- 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII MR [B-436] - 20.000 CR
- 1992 Ford Escort RS Cosworth [C-314] - 24.000 CR
- 1982 Lancia 037 Stradale [C-342] - 240.000 CR

Those of you who bought the Season pass will also get:
- 2003 Ford SVT Focus [D-259]- 7.000 CR

The total amount of credits you will need is 309.000 CR and yes, you are using the same credits from the main game. No need to win all those credits again!

It's Just Money20
Earn a Medal in 14 different cars worth at least 1 million Cr. (8)
