Introduction
Welcome to The Wheelman. This game has a total of 50 achievements. It should only take you one playthrough, if you follow the Achievement Guide. Any of the side missions and other optional Achievements will still be available after you complete the game.

Step #1:
No real planning is necessary other than making sure that you save before the three main story missions - Balance of Power: Chulos Battle, Balance of Power: Romanian Battle, and Balance of Power: Lantos Battle, so you don't want to have to play through the game more then once.

Conclusion
In conclusion, this game shouldn't be to hard for most everybody to reach 1000 . There are a few in the list that might give you some trouble (i.e. I Live For This Stuff!, Mission From God, etc.), but overall its a pretty easy list.

Speedy and Angry5

Furious and Fast10
Achieve ANY rank on FIVE Street Showdown side missions. 

See "Barcelona Drift" for more info. You have to complete FIVE with C-rank or better.

Barcelona Drift20
Achieve ANY rank on ALL Street Showdown side missions. 
Beat the other racers and come in at least fourth place to earn a C-rank in ALL Street Showdown side missions. You unlock more Street Showdown side missions and Performance Upgrades on all player vehicles for a A-rank or better. There are 15 total.

TIP #1: If you Airjack to a Super Bike as soon as you can, it makes the races a lot easier and for the races where you start on a bike just use Aimed Shot or Cyclone to kill all your opponents. Try to take shortcuts whenever possible because the other cars tend to only follow the road. Additionally, use boost whenever you can.
 
Taxi5
Achieve ANY rank on ONE Taxi side mission. 

See "The Knowledge" for more info. You have to complete ONE with C-rank or better.

Krazy Taxi10
Achieve ANY rank on FIVE Taxi side missions. 

See "The Knowledge" for more info. You have to complete FIVE with C-rank or better.

The Knowledge20

Deliver the passenger under the C time limit in ALL Taxi side mission. You unlock more Taxi side missions and Instant Travel areas for A-rank or better. There are 15 total.

TIP: For the Taxi side missions, try to drift around every corner because its quicker and it also fills up your Focus Gauge. Use shortcuts whenever you can and use your boost after turning a corner to get back up to top speed quickly.
 
Making a Mess5
Achieve ANY rank on ONE Rampage side mission. 

See "Anti Social Behaviour Order" for more info. You have to complete ONE with C-rank or better.

Disturbing the Peace10
Achieve ANY rank on FIVE Rampage side missions. 

See "Anti Social Behaviour Order" for more info. You have to complete FIVE with C-rank or better.

Anti Social Behaviour Order20
Achieve ANY rank on ALL Rampage side missions. 
Cause more damage to the city than the C-rank in ONE Rampage side mission. You unlock more Rampage side missions and upgrades to attack power on all player vehicles for A-rank or better.

TIP #1: For the rampages I found it easiest in an SUV because its pretty big, but its not as slow as a van or a truck. Try to get your multiplier up to x8 as soon as you can by destroying eight of the objects shown in the picture in the top left. Then, drive along the pavement/sidewalk and crash as many glass bus shelters and concrete posts as you can because they get you the most money and there are lots of them. Try to remember which roads have the most bus shelters and concrete posts because some have more than others.
 
Road Warrior5
Achieve ANY rank on ONE Contracts side mission. 

See "Road Rash" for more info. You have to complete ONE with C-rank or better.

Road Rage10
Achieve ANY rank on FIVE Contracts side missions. 

See "Road Rash" for more info. You have to complete FIVE with C-rank or better.

Road Rash20
Get any Rank on ALL Contracts side missions. 
Try and take down the Target Vehicle under the time limit for the C-rank. You unlock more Contracts side missions and Focus Power for A-rank or better. There are 15 total.

TIP: For the contracts side missions I used the SUV because it does a lot of damage and its not too slow. Try to slam the target into walls as much as you can because this does a lot of damage. Make sure you time your melees properly as well because if you miss one then the target could get away. If you are having trouble with some of the faster Targets you might want to use a faster car for those.
 
Delivery Boy5
Achieve ANY rank on ONE Hot Potato side mission. 

See "Man in Brown" for more info. You have to complete ONE with C-rank or better.

The Courier 10
Achieve ANY rank on FIVE Hot Potato side missions. 

See "Man in Brown" for more info. You have to complete FIVE with C-rank or better.

Man In Brown20
Achieve ANY rank on ALL Hot Potato side missions. 
You have to collect briefcases to extend the time and earn money. Earn more money then the C-rank before time runs out. You unlock more Hot Potato side missions and Weapon Caches for A-rank or better. There are 15 total.

TIP: I found the Super Bike the best vehicle for Hot Potato because it has good acceleration and its good for driving through tight spaces like alleys. Try to remember where all the packages are because some of them are hard to find and it makes it a lot easier if you know where they all are.
 
Made to Order5
Achieve ANY rank on ONE Made to Order side mission. 

See "Gone in 59 Seconds" for more info. You have to complete ONE with C-rank or better.

Gone In One Minute10
Achieve ANY rank on FIVE Made to Order side missions. 

See "Gone in 59 Seconds" for more info. You have to complete FIVE with C-rank or better.

Gone In 59 Seconds20
Achieve ANY rank on ALL Made to Order side missions. 
Deliver vehicles in good condition above the C-rank in ALL Made to Order side mission. You unlock more Made to Order side missions and Garages for A-rank or better. There are 15 total.

TIP: Start off on a Super Bike because they are the fastest vehicles in the game. Try to catch the target vehicle as quickly as you can. Take your time once you get the vehicle because you can't afford to damage them. If you are having trouble catching a vehicle, try to remember which route they take because they normally go the same way every time.
 
Run, Milo, Run5
Achieve ANY rank on ONE Fugitive side mission. 

See "Can't Catch Me!" for more info. You have to complete ONE with C-rank or better.

Getaway in Barcelona10
Achieve ANY rank on FIVE Fugitive side missions. 

See "Can't Catch Me!" for more info. You have to complete FIVE with C-rank or better.

 

Can't Catch Me!20
Achieve ANY rank on ALL Fugitive side missions. 
Reach the safe house under the C-rank time limit in ALL Fugitive side mission. You unlock more Fugitive side missions and Health Upgrades to all player vehicles for A-rank or better. There are 15 total.

TIP : For fugitive I found it best to just ignore your enemies as much as possible. Try and stay away from them, use all your focus to boost away from them. If you get surrounded, melee them or shoot their tyres.
 
Diesel Powered!50
Complete ALL side missions with an "A" rank or better. 
Complete ALL the side missions with the A-rank or better. You have to earn an A or higher to unlock more side missions and upgrades from side missions. There are 105 total. See the specific side quest for tips.

Radu’s Requiem30
Defeat Radu, the boss of the Romanians. 

Progress through the main story.
 

You will want to make multiple saves before doing this story mission (Balance of Power: Romanian Battle), because if you don't, you will miss out on "Stavo's Swansong" and "Paulo's Peace". I would say make at least three. The markers are in a small group of three on the GPS Menu.
Paulo’s Peace30
Defeat Paulo, the boss of the Los Lantos. 

Progress through the main story.
 

You will want to make multiple saves before doing this story mission (Balance of Power: Lantos Battle), because if you don't, you will miss out on "Radu's Requiem" and "Stavo's Swansong". I would say make at least three. The markers are in a small group of three on the GPS Menu.
 
Is It A Bird?25
Use the Airjack FIFTY times. (1) 

Simply do the Airjack 50 times. You can do this on any 50 vehicles.

Sharpshooter25
Destroy three vehicles during a single Cyclone or Aimed Shot move. 
Make sure you are being followed by at least three vehicles and hit or . Then you have to line up your gun circle with the circle on the cars. Pull the trigger when the two lined up circles overlap and turn red. You don't actually have to shoot three individual cars, just make sure that three are destroyed in a single Cyclone or Aimed Shot.
 
Mission Improbable25
Complete a Fugitive side mission on a motorcycle. (1) 

You have to start and finish on the same motorcycle, you cannot change motorcycles by Airjacking.
 

TIP: I found the easiest fugitive side mission to do this on is called Escape from Drassanes, its the one you need to complete in under 0:50.97 to S rank it. Its by far the shortest one that I've done so far.
 
 
Mission From God25
Survive a five star police response for 5 minutes. (1) 
To do this, you have to unlock the ability to use guns through the Story Missions. Be on foot and shoot at civilians to get 4 stars and when the police show up, shoot at the police to get the fifth star. Then, survive for 5 minutes. I found it easiest to use the semi and slam into everything I saw, but I have also seen people hide in the subway.

Accidental Tourist 30
Visit every district in Barcelona. 

If you just play through the story and the side missions, you should unlock this.
