    I picked this up in the recent price drop. At the moment my only target is to beat Tricky on every event! So please feel free to add me if you'd like some average times to target...

    Would someone explain something to me:

    I thought each car had five exclusive races each, but when I check the race list on a particular car (the Lambo Countach, for example), it looks like Tricky has achieved his better score/time in a different car. What's going on here?

    There something like 60 events overall, and only certain cars can do certain events. There aren't 5 specific events for each car.

    Yeah you ain't going to get anywhere in the Countach. It sounds awesome but it's slow as shite; drifts beautifully though.

    Oh, that's slightly disappointing, but thanks!

    @Tricky I beat a few of your times with the Countach, but yeah, there's some I can't even get close to.

    Moving on...

    I think it's their way of getting you to try every car and going back to better yourself in each event. I just completed the Lamborghinis in my alphabetical tour of every car in the game last night so I reckon I should have them all done in the next couple of nights. Then those billboards are going to get a smashing.

    /sounds slightly pervy

    @Tricky - I'm doing the same, though I've got about 7 more cars to do than you. Just got 3 online Trophies to go for the Platinum, too.

    Funnily enough it gave me the achievement with three cars still to go :-s

    Done them all anyway and now I'm on a mission to have my face everywhere in Fairhaven.

    /mwahahahahahaha

    @Tricky - do you mean the "finish first in every race, in every car" Achievement? If so, it's an ambiguous description. There are 61 unique events, spread across the 41 cars, so you play the same event several times if you do all 5 events for each of the 41 cars. To get the Trophy/Achievement, you just have to win those 61 events, which will mean having to use all the cars at least once. I've got the Trophy (I went out of my way to get it sooner rather than later), with still about 15 cars to finish events for.

    Yeah, you see to me the "in every car" bit removes any supposed ambiguity. I read that as meaning that you need to finish first in each of the five races that you can race in for each car. Remove the "in every car" bit and it then makes a shit load more sense, so they've basically worded it incorrectly.

    @Tricky - it's not at all obvious, to start with, that there are only 61 unique events, rather than 215 (41 cars, 5 events each, plus 10 Most Wanted races). Still, I've just finished all the events for all the cars this evening, so I've got it covered. Just in time for the DLC on Wednesday. :)

    Still one gate left to discover. I'm like Dr Livingstone.

    @brainbird - those can be a pain. I found my last one where there were 3 together. I'd gone in one and out another, missing the third.

    I just started using the Veyron and holy shit is it fast. Might be able to beat some of your times now, Tricky.

    Probably not though. :/

    Had a look at the car list wiki for this and there's the Dodge Charger SRT-8 (Slim Jim promo-code) mentioned. Suppose there's no way for us normalo Europeans to unlock this car on consoles? :/

    Criterion are EA's now, go figure.

    I've found the last gate last night. I was just fooling around and suddenly saw a shortcut which was only 'discovered' on one side. Yay!

    I somehow completely missed the fact there's DLC out for this. Is it any good?

    @brainbird - the DLC is pretty much more of the same, only faster. So how much you'll like it depends on how much you like the main game, I suppose.
