Introduction:
Welcome to Forza Motorsport 3. Most of the achievements can be obtained offline and the online achievements can easily be obtained with a friend. Changing the difficulty of races does not affect achievements - only the amount of bonus money that you receive after the race. The reason for 100+ hours of gameplay is the Solid Gold achievement, which requires finishing first place in every single race in the game. Since there are 220 separate events with anywhere from one race to six races, it will take some time to obtain this achievement.

Step #1: Season Play
Season play in Forza 3 involves a race in the Championship Series every two weeks with an event of your choosing in between the event. There are six required seasons for the achievements and each one increases in car level and length. For instance, the first season involves E class cars for three races, while the sixth season involves R1 cars for 13 races. Play through all six seasons and you will gain most of the achievements because many are for increasing your driver level and for completing seasons.

Step #2: Miscellaneous/Online Achievements
If at this time you do not own at least one vehicle from every manufacturer, buy the cheapest ones to obtain the Connoisseur achievement. The online achievements are pretty self-explanatory. If you need help selling a car or tuning setup, check out the achievement trading thread here. Get the simple Lapper achievement by completing any time trial. There are various achievements for taking a picture of your car and making a movie from a replay. Lastly, obtain the Drift Lap achievement, which arguably is the hardest achievement in the game. Check out this thread for more help.

Step #3: Solid Gold
Here’s the time consuming achievement. By now, you should hopefully be level 50 or close to it. If you want to play each race, you can, but the simplest way to obtain this achievement would be to go through the event list and use a hired driver for each race. For instance, races in the professional category can take up to twenty minutes each and each event has six races. Although not hard, the achievement will definitely take a long time to obtain.

Conclusion:
Forza 3 is a very fun game and although some races tend to get boring, especially endurance races, Forza 3 is not that hard to 1000 .

These 18 achievements are gained by leveling you're driver through levels 0 to 50 (you start at 0). This process goes the same way as leveling up your car, you get XP for driving races, drags, drifts etc. Also both offline and online count towards these achievements. Maybe the best way is to drive online with a friend and use these settings:

Game type: Drag
Track: Sedona 1 mile
Damage difficulty: simulation
Number of heats: 10
Number of max players: 8
Number of max AI players: 7
AI difficulty: hard
Collision mode: always on
Number of teams: 4 (you will be teaming up with your friend)

Put all the assists off (or if you fail the start, you can put TCS on). Choose the 2007 #8 Peugeot Sport 908 (R1 997) and you will most likely win the drag. You get 1,225CR and 700XP for single heat. So when there is 10 heats, you get 10*1,225CR= 12,250CR and 10*700XP= 7000XP. It takes like 30 seconds to finish one heat, so it's 300 seconds for 10 heats (5 minutes). 

Welcome to Forza Motorsport15
Complete the very first race in the game. (2) 

When you first start the game, select Season Play and you will be in an Audi R8. Simply win this race and you will get this achievement. If you don't come in first place, just finish any other race and you'll still get this achievement.

Weekday Event10

Weekend10
Complete your first weekend event in Season Play mode. 

After you choose your starter car, you can compete in Season Play. During any given month in-game, you race on Weekdays and Weekends. For this achievement, you have to race and complete a Weekend event. Weekend events are always Championship Events. For example, one weekend event is the D-Class Championship. Weekends are Saturday-Sunday only.

Solid Gold80
Achieve a gold trophy in every single race in the Event list in Season Play mode. (128) 

This is the most time consuming in the game. You need to finish 220 events in 1st place, and every event consists of 3 or more different tracks.

The fastest way is to hire a driver compete the race for you. He will take 50% of the winnings and you won't be able to earn any XP, but this way you don't actually have to race. You can just set the race up and then go do something else until the race is finished.

Not every car that is in the Auction House is sold, so you might want to use the Achievement Trading Thread to find someone that can buy your car in exchange.

Sniper10
Win an auction by outbidding someone. (3) 

This achievement is actually harder than it seems because you can never know whether someone else is going to bid on a car you want. You could get lucky and randomly win one, but the easiest way to get this would be to boost it by finding someone in the Achievement Trading Thread to auction a car that no one else wants and placing a very high starting price on it. Bid once on the car and periodically check back to see if anyone else has bid on it. If someone else has, outbid them so you can win. Once the time runs out and you obtain the car, the achievement will unlock.
