    The total cost of CR you will need to buy all the needed cars is 1,027,000. That is not including all the cars you win.

  • The achievement is glitched. Since the update were you can see all cars from downloadable content it is no longer possible to get this achievement without buying the content. At least that's what I asume since I can't get the achievement while I did bought at least one car from every possible manufacturer (not including the downloadable content ones which are locked)
  • If you have the problem with this achievement not unlocking when you have downloaded the free version of the DLC car packs, try deleting the car packs from your xbox hard drive, then restarting forza. You may see the main menu item to re-install disk 2 content. Go ahead and do this, then check your garage again. If you had cars in your garage from the free DLC, there will also be a message about missing content and the cars being removed if you proceed with starting Forza after removing the DLC. Not sure if you purchased any of those DLC cars if they go back in your garage after re-downloading the DLC. After starting again minus DLC, go into the car buying list and see if there are any "unowned" manufacturers again.
  • You just made my day dude. The thing you said workt and I got the achievement now. Couldn't have done this without your help. Very much appreciated. Cheers! :)
  • We had the same problem, but now we h've the achievement. Thanks.
  • Yeah it worked but i lost my '10 nissan gtr spec-v i had been slaying with for months! NOOOOOOOOOOOOO
  • followed what YapperFlapper said and now disc 2 is corrupt and wont install a certain part of it. this os a joke why would this be glitched, stupid now awaiting a reply from xbox.
  • Now randomly popped up strange. disc 2 is still corrupt for some reason.
  • Thanks man!! That did it!!!!
  • So if you download the free DLC you hav to own them all? for this achievement...? I still need this achievement...
  • I tried your idea but I didn't lose any cars. I have one from each company. Do they have to be brought from the shop or can they be brought from the auction house?
  • Ah.. got it! Thanks :) I had to do a race after :)
  • @Protoryp FeareD: thx! achievement did not unlock at first, but after doing a race it unlocked :)
  • Still having problems after trying all of the above... Ive deleted everything on my harddrive that mentions 'Car' or 'Car Pack'. I've made sure several times I got one of each manufacture... The DLC still appears in the 'Buy Cars' menu but the images of the locked cars have locks over the top of them... I've even tried a race afterwards... Do I need to re-install disc 2? Any help will be great, cheers guys.
  • It works if i buy the Locked DLC cars from Auction House?
  • Had the same problem. Deleted market place downlands from Xbox360 memory Restarted - extra car manufacturers like Devon and Gumpert had gone Did one race and then got achievement. Can now go back and re-add DLC.
  • "Comment #14 by OttoWilson Tuesday, January 25, 2011 @ 06:36:52 PM It works if i buy the Locked DLC cars from Auction House?" Yes, that's the way i made the achievment. It takes a little more time but it's possible. For some one who's making Solid Gold Achievement CR are no problem lol
  • hi yes just got this acheivement dont know what happened did like he said uninstalled everythink nothing had all car from all manufacturer so i had a free content for the game put the in started the game and two more manufactors came up american motors give me amc javelin-amx and italy de tomaso came up withde tomaso pantera bought both and bingo it popped up so hopes this helps
  • sorry also had to buy the delorean dmc-12 from dmc if your still having troble let me know and i will send you the car i just bought if you have every think on the ames list
  • had an issue with this and the ultimate edition. for me to get the achievement deleting 2nd disc did not work, ended up reinstalling it and racing until i had enough money to purchase one of each cars under the car list. Ended up needing approx 4,000,000 more credits to be able to do so. Working this in with the solid gold achievement you should be able to do with no issues. Achievement popped as soon as i bought the last car. Easy way to tell if you have a car from a particular manufacturer is to go to buy cars go in to the manufacturer and at the top of one of them should be a little picture of a garage to denote that it is in your garage. Check all suppliers and buy the ones you need.
  • I have Forza 3 Ultimate Edition, and I downloaded one of the map packs for it, I'm not sure which one, but it came with the BMW M6, what should I delete to get this achievement, 'cause it doesn't say DLC?
  • Followed YapperFlapper's tip and got it after completing a race - Thank Ya!
  • If I do not have xbox live or the DLC cars how do I get this acheivment ??
  • Ok. The thing about disk 2. I had the same problem. Don't worry. The same had me when I contacted Microsoft about it. I deleted everything but the gamesave. It fixed the problem and nothing else would have been better.
  • I have tried all of these methods. The list says i need a car from Buick, but when i uninstall disc 2 buick becomes locked although i do still own it in my garage. Does this affect anything?
  • I delete all the free car packs,i bought a car,and i unlocked the achievement
  • thank u yapper flapper u have helped me alot dude
  • I had all the cars before doing what #2 told to do so the achievement diden't popped right after I did what #2 said to do so i just sold a citroen (just because Citroen have 1 car in the game so I know for sure I don't have a citroen in my garage) and than bought it again and than the achievement popped! Thanks man you really helped :)
  • if someone has a bugatti veyron they could send it for free then add my gamertag i was stupid enough to seel my other one now have all cars except from the bugatti, if you can add me and send me a message saying "bugatti" and i will accept thanks, if yu help me i will help you with some achievements you need
  • So that's why it didn't work. I think I'll just buy the DLC cars in the game (already bought the DLC).
  • Need DLC
  • So do I need to own all these cars at the same time? Like if I have sold a few but owned them at one point will it still work?
  • @# 22 you dont
  • i did what it told me to but no achievement can som1 help me plz
  • any1?
  • does it work if you buy a car from all of the dlc companies as well?
  • i cant they all lockd looks like i have 2 buy the car pack dam it
  • If you own at least 1 car from every default manufacture and don't have the achievement unlocked, try this: Go to the Buy Cars menu, find each manufacture that only has 1 car listed. Chances are it will be locked due to a DLC. The ones locked for me were Bertone and Morgan. Go to the auction house and buy each of the locked cars, search using make and model. As soon as you resolve the auction for your last car, the achievement will pop. I've just got mine using this method as I didn't want to delete anything.
  • Here's how to do it: 1) Make sure you got at least 1 of each car listed in the guide. 2) Press the Guide button go to System>System Settings>Memory>Games>Forza Motor Sport 3 and delete anything that says "car pack" (don't worry if you bought DLC cars from the free packs you keep them, just gotta reinstall the packs, we'll get to that later though.) 3)Restart game (it will prompt you to reinstall disc 2 and blah blah about DLC cars, again ignore the message, just install the disc content. 4) check your car list to make sure you have all the manufacturers needed (you should) 5) run a race, it doesn't have to be any specific one, doesn't even matter if you run it already, just pick the shortest race you can find from the event list and run it. When you complete the race and it goes back to th
  • e menus the cheeve will pop. Hope this helps anyone who hasn't gotten this yet. And please for the love of GOD can someone please buy my tuning set up? lmao The gamer tag is msfstar13 and the set up is AudiS. I will return the favor if you need help with another cheeve, just message me on XBL and I'll do what I can.
  • oh and as for the DLC stuff, all you gotta do is at the main menu go to xbox live market place, and re-download the packs that you had on there. Pretty simple really, if you hd any packs you purchased you should be able to download them again without having to pay for them.
  • Also, I forgot to mention, for those of you who did buy cars from DLC packs, you WILL lose them out of your garage, but they come back after you re-install the DLC, and no you don't need to buy them again. They just show back up in your garage.
  • @msfstar13, you do not need to delete anything to get the achievement. Follow the steps from my post.
  • Yeah I tried buying some from the auction house. Had a couple issues with that 1) Not enough credits, 2) some cars unavailable, and 3) Had about 6 different manufacturers that were DLC that I would've had to buy 1 of each from. It was actually pretty quick for me the way I did it. Just deleted the DLC ran a race, got the achievement then reinstalled the DLC. Still kept the cars I had bought that were DLC, and didn't have to spend any credits, just had to reinstall the DLC to get them back. I'm sure it works your way as well, just wasn't an option for me has I didn't have the credits and didn't want to spend the time running races, or even more time hiring drivers to run races so I could out bid or buy out a dlc car that would've cost a lot more than it should.
  • Anybody who sell me the DLC Cars ? ;)
  • What cars do you need?
  • msfstar13 thank you so much it worked for me. got all of my cars back from DLC too
  • tried everything here and even after buying multiple cars for every manufacturer i havent got my 50g really annoyed now i have a garage full of crap cars i dont want and almost no cash i give up.
  • I finally got this. Just reached level 41, which gave me a McLaren, so I owned everything but a DeLorean and a DeTomaso, which are both unavailable to me. So I deleted the DLC car packs, and raced once. (I didn't re-install Disc 2 again) Didn't pop, so I checked my garage. DeLorean and DeTomaso are no longer there, but the Mini I owned wasn't there anymore either, so I bought a different, cheap Mini and now 50G. Now I need to find Disc 2 and re-install it, and hope I get all my cars back! Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions.
  • thans for the suggestions i got it
  • i did wat #2 told me to do bud i had 1 car not bud i did not got the achievment :( I have also not 7 of the cars what you need to pay for 400 points help me plz???
  • Got it today, bought everycar from the list incl dlc. Deleted players choise pack (DeLorean and DeTomaso ) 1 race and there it was
  • I tried this today...deleting all the DLC, then doinf a race. Not only did it not work, when I reinstalled the DLC I eneded up losing about 6 cars (That I noticed so far) worth around 1000000 credits. Obviously, this method doesn't work for everyone. Now I need to replace my lost cars AND purchase the new DLC cars...and hope the achievement pops.
  • Personally I didn't install any DLC and after I got one car from each company... it simply gave me the achievement.
  • hmm.. i have the ultimate edition, with a lot of extra cars build in. somehow, the achievement doesn't unlock when buying all the cars from the guide. i will have to check how i will handle this, probably gonna buy all 'extra manufacterer' cars aswell. should pop up i guess.. wish me luck >:)
  • update; all of the above suggestions did not work. i have tried everything mentioned here. all there is left to do, is actually buy the remaining cars from the extra ultimate edition manufacturers. will take a sloppy 4 million to buy them, but hey.. fuk it :)
  • I just bought all the cars what is avalable and thats it. Locked cars I bought in the auction house, I cant use them, but I still own them:D. No need to uninstall something
  • Just got this using #2s method :) for it to unlock for me, I just re-bought one of the cars where there was only one in the manufacturer list :)
  • I tried both methods and neither of them worked for me. What the hell do I do now?
  • I successfully executed mine =D Perform step 2, and once u're done, and there aren't any locked cars in your Buy Car List, then just buy another car there and you're done =)
  • @ 58 Same here this is pissing me off it wont unlock. I've bought a car from each marque for the actual game shop not off the auction house just to make sure spent almost 10 mil buying them all for the achievement not to unlock WTF!!!
  • @60 I tried uninstalling my DLC and then went through the list on this page with the one in game (open the list of cars by pressing x and sort by manufacturer). I was missing one from McClaren. If someone wants to message me on live, in a couple of days I can gift my whole collection. All my cars for the achievement.
  • First, make sure you've downloaded all the sample cars from the Xbox Live Marketplace. Next, have at least $8-10M to spend on cars (depending on what you already have in your garage). *If you don't have the loot, simply set up an auction using a cheap car and have a friend buyout that auction for the money you need. Last, buy the CHEAPEST car from each manufacturer. When you're done , you may still need a few if you didn't buy all the car pack(s). *If you can, just have friends gift them to you. Once they're in your garage, you'll get this achievement. You DO NOT need to have all the cars unlocked!
  • Din have it cuz of the dlc samples.. now have it.. lost 3 cars tho.... X'(
  • Thx YapperFlapper followed your instructions and it worked a treat.Had give up on this achievement cause i was'nt prepared to pay for all the downloads Thx again man
  • Got all but the koenigsegg and the mclaren f1 if anyone still ahs the game and could gift me them temporarily that would be greatly appreciated
  • guys, you need to install disc 2 and just buy one from each manufacturer if you have one already that's OK just makes sure you buy from disc 2 content just done it popped up when i bought the last car.
  • Saved up the money to do this tonight and disc 2 is too badly scratched to install. Not letting stepson near another game at this rate.
  • Finally got this achievement. Now that I have all cars, I am willing to help out any one who needs a car. Just message me which manufacturer you are missing, and I will temporarily gift them to you for the achievement.
  • Everyone who got the Ultimate Collection has to buy some more cars to get the Achievment. Uninstalling everything from disc 2 didnt work for me. Bertone 2010 Mandtide for 1,000,000 CR Devon 2010 GTX for 300,000 CR Gumpert 2010 Apollo for 345,000 CR Joss 2010 JT1 for 400,000 CR KIA 2010 Forte Koup SX for 18,000 CR Morgan 2010 Aero SuperSports for 180,000 CR Mosler 2010 MT900S for 320,000 CR Radical 2010 SR8 Supersport for 115,000 CR Rossion 2010 Q1 for 100,000 CR Spada Vetture Sport 2010 Condatronca TS for 400,000 CR SSC 2010 Ultimate Aero for 620,000 CR Wiesmann 2010 GT MF5 - 225,000 CR Means 4,023,000 additional CR to spend.
