Factory Driver Achievement

    Get any Car Manufacturer to Affinity level 50.

     

    I can guarantee you that this will be one of your last achievements, as this is rumored to take absolutely forever. Even Turn 10 stated that their goal was to have less that 1 percent of people attain this in under a 24 month period. I for one don't think that it will take that long. Just stick to races that net you bonus Affinity points, and of course, try to stick to only a few of the manufacturers. Stay loyal!

  • Turn 10 said "our target was to have less than one percent of our players have any manufacturer up to level 50 within 24 months." SUCKS.
  • Sorry for double post, but I forgot to provide link to source... http://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/underthehood1/
  • i'll drive any pagani as much as possible. thats my favourite car.
  • i say this is a ferrari job, because there are a lot of them, so i will not get bored, and almost all ferraris are good in forza games, except for the old ones
  • Dodge ftw m/
  • Lambos for me
  • Honda's are my game plus I work at honda so its my goal to get it up to 50 lol
  • I wish they were bringing back porshes. this achievement would be fairly easy if they had
  • I will be getting this with FORD, thank you very much.
  • "our target was to have less than one percent of our players have any manufacturer up to level 50 within 24 months." CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!
  • I think what people are missing here is, you can look on the eveny list and do races that give bonuses to affinity. I think that will make it go by a lot faster for those who really want to grind it out. Whether you get that bpnus every time is another question tho.
  • @9 -I'm doing it with Ford as well. A lot of variety and you can start with a Ford from the start.
  • This should also be quite a handy achievement for spotting those that hack their accounts for gamerscore - anyone with this before Xmas should get their profile checked. I'm sure there will be a few hardcore fans out there that will play nothing but F4 and get it legit, but far fewer than will have it unlocked.
  • Working on day three of Game play and already have my BMW Affinity up to level 12. These won't take to long as long as you use only one manufacturer for majority of the events.
  • @14 I agree. I've been focusing mainly on Ford and its levelling up quite fast. I often select the affinity bonus races too which helps.
  • Hell yeah #14, BMW is the way to go! That's what I'm doing, they don't call it the ultimate driving machine for nothing! :D
  • I think I will go with Ford on this one. Fords are legit in this game, imo. Anyone with me(and yes, I work at a Ford/Lincoln dealership to)?
  • @17 and all other comments on ford Yeah I would go with ford ( My favourite is the shelby gt500, Amazing machine) But im sticking with Mazda here. I love the rx7 too much lol
  • going with the delorean! :D
  • @#19 If you can pull that one off, you will be a GOD indeed! On to business though, does anyone here know exactly how many affinity points it takes to get to level 50?
  • im goin nissan .. all day
  • im using ferrari on this one. there is a event on the events list that gives you 10,000 affinity points as well as 100% bonus affinity for completing this event. im planning the same event in the season (it doesn't effect the event list) and just racing it constantly. im at level 19 with Ferrari after making the switch from Honda
  • ^^^ What event is that? I planned on using Ferrari also.
  • @21, me too! Nissan m/m/
  • Okay so for the people that are using ferrari, the event is GT ferrari car club. Its in the second grouping. if u own the ferrari f40 c and modify it to be AWD It is basically unbeatable. If you do it through the season. u get around 20,000 affinity each race. im in my 10 season and im getting 24,000. its easy this way
  • Gotta go with Nissan, cant beat the skyline in a,b,or s, than the silvia ownds in c or d, i forget
  • I'm thinking I'll complete everything in Career World Tour and Event List before my Ford Affinity gets to 50. I've been using Ford only since the start and so far I've almost completed season 6 and I'm Driver level 30 and Ford Affinity level 15. I've been selecting affinity boosting races when available. Anyone else noticing similar results?
  • Well i've just been looking at all the comments and i agree with £13 Avenger. but im on affinity 21 and to get to 22 it's a total of 1162500 XP. this is going to be one hell of a BALL BUSTER!!!!!!!!!!!!
  • guys its not hard. basically if u get past level 25 it becomes really easy. i finished all of the seasons and im at level 35 affinity with ferrari. i should have the achievement by next week. also, u can replay the seasons again (which is what im doing) and im flying through the levels. look at my comments above. just pick the right manufacturer and its cake
  • @devastater6194 i agree with you man dodges ftw!
  • @29 (mapleleafs32) I've read all your posts and agree the Ferrari Affinity event with 10,000xp + 100% more is the best option overall, but why does it get easy past affinity level 25? Is it less XP/level? I also noticed there is a Ford Affinity event that gives 6,500xp + 100% which might be an option for anyone already a high level with Ford.
  • It seems as you progress through the levels the amount of xp it takes to level up doesn't change. I'm going to have this before Bucket List. But I've been grinding pretty hard though.
  • I have been using nothing but Ferrari's every chance I get and I am currently at 19 Affinity. I have about 15 Races left in Season 10, so I guess I will take mapleleafs32's tip and replay the Ferrari Challenge that gives 20,000 Affinity.
  • hey guys. i got the achievement today...i can tell you guys it takes a total of 2.6 million total experience and i had to play 17 seasons to get it. the reason that it gets easier is becuase as the seasons pass, you get more credits which if u play the event (GT ferraris)u will get the credit bonus plus 100%. add me and i can share cars if you want or check if i actually have the achievement. its a early grind but if ur determined, u will get it
  • yea i recommend a ferrari, its on the cover after all. and yes the r8 was more of a beast in forza 3 because it was on the cover, in forza 4?... not as much
  • for some reason in the ferrari gt event it says i have no elegible cars, yet i have many ferraris that are in that class.. any help?
  • thats odd. the ferrari GT50c, GT40c and the enzo are eligible.
  • my highest manufacturer (Ford) level is 22 and i'm on driver level 87... this is going to take forever, longer than getting the "bucket list" achievement. :S
  • I have only used 1 r1 pergeot online only and it is at lvl 15 its pretty easy
  • I'll be going with Ford. How happy am I that I finally have a vehicle to match my gamertag :)
  • For those like me going with Nissan, there is an identical event to the Ferrari one that everyone is talking about that gives you 10,000 affinity XP plus a 100% affinity bonus. It's called Nissan SuperGT Showcase. I'm using the 1998 #32 Nissan R390 GT1 (you can pick this car as your Driver Level 44 reward), and it's a cake walk. Still going to take forever to hit affinity level 50, though.
  • exp needed drops after lvl 22 from 25 till 50 is 50k ep for each level... not as hard as you might think
  • Nissan chevy Pontiac
  • Got this today with chevy. Not that hard, just takes time. Ps. Ford sucks
  • Check my account if i get it before christmas? Thats crazy talk I only had the game for 2 weeks and i'm level 30, past level 25 it takes only 50,000xp to get to the next one so i should have it by 16th NOV. BTW i do have a job and playing forza is not all i do all day:D
  • the easiest way for this is to go to online race. private match. test track A, set the max players to 12, and AI to 11, change their difficulty to professional. change the car class to R1 and the laps to 50. change the difficulty to abs off. steering to simulation. traction control off, tranny to manual w/ clutch, suggested line off, rewind off. then change your car to a peugot R1 class and start the race. take off and keep the car under control and shift to 4th gear. drive around the inside part of the track. if you do this correctly it should take approximately 18 minutes. you'll get just over 100k credits and 50k exp for affinity and driver exp. plus once you get over a certain level of affinity you'll start getting an additional 75k credits for each level of affinity. it's a good way t
  • its not hard at all real talk i just got the game like a week after it came out and already i got that achievement
  • A total grueller but getable unlike the 100,000 drift lap which I totally sucked at
  • honda :)
  • Probably going to do this for FERARRI, but I may work up my LOTUS level. Problem with Lotus is they have no cars above S.
  • I choose Ferrari to do this achievement because they are the best doig cars!!
  • Im going AUDI all the way!
  • I chose ferrari, found the GT Club on my end of my nineth season. I'm level 34.5. I was wondering, do I play more seasons? It went back to amatuer, and the payout is pretty abysmal. Or do I move on to Bucklist and just use the ferarri's? The higher levels were paying 20-24k in affinity, but now I'm down to 6-10 if I'm lucky. It sucks seeing Season 1 by my GT tag when I've already finished 10 already.
  • i chose audi.. you needn't to play all seasons again and again. just choose races from the event list with a high affinity bonus. but i think it won't take you at least 48 months to reach level 50. got this game since 5 weeks now and i'm level 31. so i guess it will take you at most 3 or 4 months.
  • Going with Honda, level 18 but it's too slow... Considering to change to Ferrari for the 10k + 100% plus event :o
  • This is a job for Ford, Dogde, Bugatti and Pagani!!!! Easy, every one them on 25 of affinity.
  • So far I'm doing this on Nissan, as I noticed a couple others are doing it on them as well. So I guess it comes down to what car co. you like... ;)
  • So far I am the only one I know who is gonna do this achievement with Saleen. The Saleen S7 is just an amazing car and it qualifies for most events and if you upgrade it enough you can take it online and even beat out cars like the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 SS on Le Mans
  • Im doing this the 50k track way with a mitshu online. Evo's & DSM's are my irl loves/cars so might as well keep it going in game :D
  • I did it with Audi. My stats show it took me 30hrs to reach lvl 50. You can probably do it in about 20hrs, if you only race the world series events.
  • Honestly, I think Turn 10's overdone it with this one. I've played already 25h, am done with the 10 seasons and starting to go through the event list. I think that "Bucket list" is enough for the long term motivation. Don't get me wrong, I love this game, but it sucks that after 25h of play i'm just at lvl 19 with ferrari and the game is "forcing" me to use no other cars (which I did bc it would be boring not not to). Therefore, 1 Star bc i can't give zero.
  • Woot, lvl 50, Nissan factory driver FTW
  • Level 50 with a DeLorean. :)
  • ferrari all the way guys! ALTHOUGH im only level 16 affinity and am bored out of my skull :
  • ferrai for me , but when i will get it it will be hard to get only level 25 with all other constructor no more race will be left hey hey
  • Dodge is the way to go for me! =D
  • im lvl 35 with ferrari now. im doing bucket list with the ferrari #12 for every race with open class. makes it easy
  • nissan gtr, its mean, lev 18 at the mo, driver lev 40. takes some time to do the factory driver achievement
  • @46 I think they patched that cos I used to always do it and now it just steers me back on to the track
  • Had this for 3 dsys and going with Ferrari yet My citroens are level 5 and ferraris Level 2
  • Going with Ferrari. Can confirm when you get to Level 24 affinity, the affinity required drops down to 50k till the next level :)
  • all mitsubishi all day, make it a little bit of a challenge but not too much, you can get a little variety with them, besides, I'm a loyalist to that manufacturer
  • Completed level 50 with Ferrari. Total affinity xp required - 2,642,500 Prize: 150,000cr
  • Going with the RX-7's for me....killing those Skylines with the 7...FD in A & S class, FC in the B class...cars are beast
  • BMW all the way for me. Gonna take a while though!
  • I'm guessing I'm in that one percent, turn 10 is talking about... with Nissan... Got to play eventlist, then drive the final championships... took me 1 day and about 5 hours driving time with Nissan.
  • Okay I am at level 36 in Ferrari. Easy way to get this go to event list and fully upgrade your car. Then mess with the rules to make it s you can race any class car. Then mess with a few more things so you can get more money. Then you can hire a driver and it still levels up. Hope this helps (:
  • im doing mine with vw at the moment... not too bad cars... still just doing the 10th season so plenty of time to do it.
  • im driverlvl 80+ lvl25aff and half way season 9 but looking at the event list there are lots where i dont have any eligible cars. i stopped receiving cars at driver level whenever, is this right, do you have to buy most of them?
  • wow I havent even bought this game yet.... was going to pick it up this week but this sound crazy lol....
  • Nissan boyo! I have about 11 Skylines so it makes sense lol
  • I could try this with Benz or Bimmer... But that's crazy! Isn't it the most time consuming cheevo ever?!
  • If you own the game and do have fun driving around on the same tracks with different cars it's not that bad, I personally still don't have it, got to level 10, then decided to just try and complete Forza 2 and 3 (at least all the offline ones) before going after these. It's not that bad IMO. But yes, it will take time.
  • Aston Martin for me, Bond Fan and still British made if not British owned anymore. The new V12 Zagato in the March DLC is SWEEEEEEEEEETTTTT
  • Ford are one of the best with: Economy, Hatchback, Fullsize Hatchback, Sedan, Muscle, Truck, NASCAR, Rally, and Touring Cars. Chevrolet and Audi and good as well.
  • It took me under 24 hours DRIVING! Used Ferrari.
  • Nissan for me. Love driving my Skyline's etc. Anyone know a quick way of doing this?
  • Ferr. is level 17 and I'm driver level 93....going to take forever....last of 4 cheevos left... But i've been driving a lot of different manufacturers...
  • BRING ON THE MERCEDES!!!! Im level 105 with 37 affinity for it.
  • If anyone is interested, I have updated the official guide on the forums which explains how to get this achievement fairly quick. Hopefully people won't think of this achievement being so bad after they read my method. For me it took literally three days of actually trying to get it. Just grind it out hard, and get it done with.
  • this is a ballache, ferrari is the car of choice, trying it now to get lvl 50 infiniti with porsche as got the add on pack..., thats gonna ba hard as a slightly limited on the races, lol.. all sweet motors though
  • i started with chevrolet and switched to ferrari because of the "own all ferrari's on disc 1). there's also a ton of different ones that can be used in just about every race, so it seems that it would be easiest to go with ferrari. even though it's my fav. manufacturer, i think my fav. car is the 2010 camaro. i own that car in real life and when it's tuned right, it's a straight beast!
  • Porsche pack is a really good way to do this. The new singleplayer events all pretty much have affinity bonuses, so you get up to about level 20 early on.
  • just got it with ferrari, and wanted to relay the stats, so everyone will get an idea of how much time this will take them. 27 hours and 34 minutes driving ferrari's, 2,642,500 total xp. i was also a driver level 95 when i got it. wasn't too bad, but i did use mostly ferrari since i had the game. i will also say that once you get to affinity 50, switch to another car manufacturer so you can keep the credit bonuses coming in that they give you for ranking up. cheers!
  • while doing bucket list ach i have got 2 cars 2 infinity with out any grinding or boosting so i wouldnt worry 2 much about this 1 :-)
  • almost there with Ford. I think Ford has to be the best choice because they have a car in almost every class.
  • I'm with OVAL TUNA nissan all day NISMO
  • Doing it with FORD. Can start with it so it will be easier then Ferrari or any other expensive car that takes ages to purchase
  • I completed it with FORD, However CHEVROLET is the only make that has a car in every class.
  • THANK GOD ITS OVER NOW ONTO THE EVENT LIST yoo
  • Just did it with Ford. Took me a little more than a month. Ford had 37 hr and had driven 2,870 mi. My Ford GT had more than half of the money earned and miles driven. My total amount of career xp was 3,500,000, I think.
  • I picked the Ford Ka as my first car so I kinda got stuck with ford, but it's still a good car brand
  • Is there a way to check manufacturer affinity across them all in Forza 4?
  • @#103--In the My Profile section of Single Player, there is a sub-section called Affinity in which you can check the level of each manufacturer, as well as how much you need to get to the next level, and much more. This is my last achievement. I'm level 242 and have just started it so I'm wishing I had played the game a bit differently from the beginning. I think I'm gonna go with Porsche, thanks to #93. I've done all of the races in the Porsche section of event list and am affinity 22.
  • I am currently with the brand BMW at level 28
  • done mine with Nissan on the world series events it was fairly easy
  • Am I the only person that is trying to do this with Pontiac? lol, I'm just about at affinity level 16 with about 6 hours behind the wheel.
  • Done!
  • While I don't have this achievement yet, I am working towards it. The thing I see nobody commented at is that the best way to do this is complete all 10 seasons first to get those achievements out of the way. Then, after all 10 seasons are done, go to your profile, to the affinity selection, and see which manufacturer is closest to level 50, then use the best car from that manufacturer in the World Trophy races (the ones all the way to the right in the Event List) as they have the biggest payout. Another way is to go online and race an easy track by yourself with 11 AI drivers. Set the laps to the max, difficulty to professional, and turn off any assists you don't need so you get more money (affinity isn't affected by assists). It does get boring doing it this way, but you get the most
  • Im on level 27 with Ferrari. One day im gonna get this-
