    I have seen my rather lovely Arsenal badge crest looking at me from a few Billboards :)
    They'll be the ones I havent got round to yet. :)

    I had something similar when I'd finished the Most Wanted section. Bit stupid that you unlock them so quickly, I'd only completed half of the 61 events.

    I've now finished all events, and with time spent messing around with billboards and autolog challenges I've spent 15 hours on it.

    ...Still one speed camara short though.

    Have just swapped this on vita for the xbox version. While certainly a superb handheld alternative to a current gen console game I just couldn't maintain any real sense of control over my car.

    Will stick to pinball and ffix on the wee gadget for now, but could use a few autolog challenges to liven up the game on xbox if anyone feels so inclined. Username: citizen36.

    Oh, should ask, is it odd behavior to spend 20 minutes driving back and forth through a tunnel in the Gallardo?

    Not at all. I do it in the Merc SLS.

    T minus 1 day until that happens. I'm back from China, I've got over my jetlag and I've just ordered my copy from ShopTo. Let battle commence!

    Likewise. Pretty sure I'm still yet to visit part of the map somehow as my sense of direction is appalling and I've got 20-odd gates left to smash even though I haven't found a new one in days.

    Only just discovered the airfield for the first time yesterday after a week of more or less constant play, not sure how I managed to miss that for so long.

    Found the final speed camara while I was billboard hunting. It was the one opposite the entrance to the multi story car park. I must have been past it plenty of times, but somehow managed not to trigger it.

    Got all the billboards now too, used a map for the last 3. Was pretty annoyed because I'd seen them all before (probably during events), but never been back to get them. Having an opponents face appear when they top the billboard leaderboard is a nice feature. Gives you more reason to try and knock them off.

    I've taken a hard line with the billboards by the giant hoops. THOSE ARE MINE!!!

    Shambles doesn't share billboards! asphalt!

    hmm? they do stay smashed (i.e the EA advert goes) and it's replaced with the avatar of whomever has jumped farthest while hitting that billboard.

    So far, I've done the first 9 Most Wanted races and got them all using the Porsche that you start in.

    Is anyone else finding the F-150 events particularly difficult? The Ambush event is proving a bit of a swine so far, the best I've done is 3:25.

    Hah! I've been mostly offline this weekend - I shall endeavour to ruin your week ;)

    The Merc SL 65 AMG is a new favourite of mine - great fun drifting in that!

    I've never been overly swayed by NFS, but I have to admit this game looks tempting.

    But that's the thing, there is no best car as most events have car restrictions.

    For its class of cars the Porsche Carrera has its strengths.

    My overall favourites to drive so far are the Ford GT and Chevrolet ZR1 both brilliant drift machines.

    although the Aventador and Nissan seem decent for Billboard shmashing.

    Seemed to have had quite a bit of billboard success in the Veyron. But since I've unlocked it I just do everything in the Veyron.

    @anthonypappa -
    for the ambush, find a hidden spot when in cool down
    That's the tricky bit, getting away from them to *be* in cool down - the truck's slower than the cops.

    @kosigan, Have a look around before you start the event, look for jumps, the bigger the better. start the event, hit the jump close by as soon as possible and then duck for cover. most of the time the rozzers wont follow. switch engine off and you have your first sub 1minute ambush time.

    @Kosigan Best way in a truck is to takedown all the cops. Only takes a small hit, and you wreck them. Scurry off and hide before reinforcements arrive.

    Am I missing something? How do I do that? (or does it just happen automatically when you stay still for long enough?)

    Stop, then press left joystick in to turn off your engine.
