    Hello readers, and welcome to my Forza Motorsport 3 FAQ! This is my second FAQ
    for the site, and it's been just as fun to write as my first! I decided to
    write this guide since I loved Forza 2, and also love cars as well (as well as
    my love for writing). This guide should help you become a (somewhat) better
    driver on Forza, as well as help you get a basic idea of what you can do with
    car upgrades and car tuning. Also, I'll have included a car list which you may
    use as a checklist. Hopefully, I do what I can to help you in this guide, but
    feel free to e-mail me if you have more questions that haven't been answered
    here. Enjoy!
       0.20       October 5th, 2009
                  +Started the guide off, added some of the confirmed cars and
                   info, as well as basic structure and driving tips, all based
                   off what can be determined from the demo.
       0.25       October 8th, 2009
                  +Turn 10 confirms full car list. I add all the cars to FAQ
       0.45       October 21st, 2009
                  +People start getting the game, posting new information for me to
                   place here.
       0.70       October 27th, 2009
                  +Now I have the game! Amazed, and will now start filling in what
                   I've missed.
       0.90       November 2nd, 2009
                  +After a long time with the game, it's about 90% ready. Need to
                   add some details and tips, but close to done.
       0.98       November 4th, 2009
                  +Pretty much done! I've submitted it, and will add info if needed
       1.00       November 14th, 2009
                  +Added some information thanks to a few e-mails with questions
                   and corrections.
       1.01       December 2nd, 2009
                  +Added one small help paragraph detailing how to figure out body
                   types (CTRL+F and search "GT_" to find it. As well, small info
                   on the Dec. 8th DLC. More when it comes out.
       1.03       December 7th, 2009
                  +Added all of the cars included in tomorrow's DLC pack. It's
                   looking great. Also separated the unicorn cars from the regular
                   and fixed a few mistakes that got pointed out to me.
       1.04       February 11th, 2010
                  +Sorry for the lack of updates. Yes, I got your e-mails, but I
                   have been busy. Fixed the "No reverse New York Circuit" typo,
                   and added the DLC.
    Have you played Forza 1 or 2? If so, you can probably skip this section. If
    not, or you want some help driving/upgrading/tuning, read on.
    a. Changes:
    ...okay, don't immediately skip it yet. Of course, there are quite a few new
    features in Forza 3, and here's a good chance to get acquainted with them.
    Rewind Mode:
    This is one of the more publicized new features in the game, as well as the
    most controversial. At any moment in a race, if you screw up, you may press the
    back button, and the game will rewind to 5 or so seconds earlier. You have
    unlimited amounts of rewinds to use. Is there a punishment for using this? Of
    course there is. Not in credits though. Just your lap time and race time will
    be uncertified.
    Season Play:
    In career mode, you can race in seasons now. Basically, you're give a calendar
    for the year, and it'll automatically choose events for you to race based on
    your cars and preferred tracks, and give you three to choose from on a specific
    day. When one season is done, you can play another, and another, until you get
    through six.
    Point to Point and Drag Races:
    Basically what it says. These two modes of racing are now in the game.
    Drift Scoring:
    At any moment during a race, you may press the right D-Pad button, and voila!
    You are now scored on your drifts. I'll get into this a bit more later.
    Other than these nice new features, we have the graphical updates, a re-vamped
    physics engine, and all of this runs at a smooth 60 FPS.
    b. Controls:
    Right Trigger: Accelerate
    Left Trigger: Brakes
    Left Stick: Steer
    A: E-Brake
    B: Shift Up
    X: Shift Down
    Y: Look Back
    Left Shoulder: Clutch
    Right Shoulder: Toggle View
    D-Pad Up: Open Telemetry
    D-Pad Down: Close Telemetry
    D-Pad Right: Turn on/off Drift scoring
    D-Pad Left: Show Damage/Tire Temperature
    Back: Rewind
    Right Stick: Look around
    Notes: Shifting up and down only takes effect if you have manual on. Clutch is
    only if you have the clutch on (I'll get to those in the "Assists" section).
    Telemetry is information about your car, such as exact tire temperature, G-
    forces, etc. Drift scoring is just that, scores for your drifts.
    c. Driving assists:
    Yes, Forza 3 is a driving sim, but for the car lover who hasn't picked up a
    driving game in their life, assists are here to help. There are a few preset
    difficulties with different assist settings, but you can set them to any custom
    combination you please.
    Easy: All assists on
    Medium: Autobrake on, TCS and ABS on, automatic, AI difficulty medium, limited 
    Hard: TCS and ABS on, automatic, AI difficulty hard, limited damage
    Advanced: ABS on, manual, AI difficulty hard, simulation damage
    Expert: All assists off
    Specific assists:
    Autobrake: (On/Off) Does what it says it does, the game brakes for you.
        Even if you start with this, you'll grow out of it quickly.
    Shifting: (Automatic/Manual/Manual & Clutch) If you're in automatic, no need to
        worry about shifting. If you're on manual, press B to shift up when you are
        near the redline for best effect. If you're on clutch, you have to hold the
        clutch to shift (like a real stick shift standard car). Shifting takes a
        good amount of awareness and concentration. If you're starting, go auto,
        and then go from there.
    Stability Control: (On/Off) Makes sure you don't spin out. Basically offset by
        half-decent driving. If you're scared your high-HP, low-handling car is
        going to come off the track though, this helps.
    Traction Control System (TCS): (On/Off) Prevents the loss of friction. Comes in
        handy if you aren't great on turns, or you just want to floor it off the
        line. Basically, with TCS off, you have to find a good RPM to launch off,
        and you'll have to be careful in the turns.
    Anti-Lock Brakes (ABS): (On/Off) You won't notice this until you turn it off
        and slam the brakes. With ABS off, you'll have to be light on the brakes. A
        good technique is to give the brakes short taps when you need to lose speed
        quickly. Taking this off is quite manageable actually.
    AI Difficulty: (Easy/Medium/Hard) Pretty self explanatory.
    Damage/Fuel/Tire Wear: (Cosmetic/Limited/Simulation) Basically self explanatory
        as well. Even on simulation, there will be few occasions where you'll need
        to worry about your fuel and tires anyways (endurance races being the
    Suggested Line: (On/Braking Only/Off) A line that tells you the optimal path of
        the track. Well, usually, anyways. The full suggested line isn't really
        that useful, but the braking line can really help, especially if you don't
        know the track.
    "So, what assists do I need?"
    Good question. If you're just starting the game, I still recommend you at least
    turn off autobrake. If you've played arcade racing games before, turn off
    Stability Control as well, and set the Suggested Line to "Braking Only".
    Difficulty, I'll let you determine yourself, as you should know by how much
    distance you and your last opponent had between yourselves in your last race.
    Where it gets hard to determine is when you should turn off TCS and ABS. Racing
    without ABS is really manageable, depending on the car. Without it on, you
    must rely less on slamming on the brakes at the last minute, and instead giving
    it a light press. If you've driven before, you will find it a lot easier to
    grasp this concept. TCS, on the other hand, is a bit harder to manage. The more
    power your car has, the harder having it off will be. Turns can be a bit more
    scary as well with it off. If you're confident you can handle all of your car,
    then definitely turn these off.
    As for your transmission, it depends on how able are you to multitask. I've got
    it set to manual, but I find the clutch too awkward as a button (although I set
    it on for drag and speedway races).  Nevertheless, having the clutch on gives
    you a lot more control of your shifts.
    d. Game Modes:
    At the game's main menu, you're given three options: Forza Motorsport 3, Free
    Run and Xbox Live Marketplace. XBL Marketplace is self-explanatory, and Free
    Run is basically just where you go if you want to do an exhibition race or a
    free run/hot lap. In the Forza Motorsport 3 option, you have the meat of the
    game. There, you have your career mode, as well as painting, tuning, upgrading,
    storefront and auction house options, as well as online racing. I'll get into 
    all of those in detail later.
    e. Storefront:
    ...some sooner than later. What you can get from the storefront expands on the
    auction house of Forza 2. You can search car designs, vinyl groups and tuning
    setups that have been uploaded by others. As well, you can view pictures and
    videos uploaded by others. You can search by keyword what you want, as well as
    the ability to specify your search by make, model, track (for tunes), category,
    etcetera. You can also save users as favourites and make it easier for you to
    check out their stuff.
    Note that there are also Storefront leaderboards, and you can easily find the
    best tuners, painters, etc.
    f. Lap Times:
    Like FM2, you can set lap times on leaderboards, whether you're in a career
    race or you're in hotlap mode. Instead of lap time penalties this time around,
    instead you must worry about lap certification. If one of the following things
    happen, your lap time will become uncertified:
       Hit the dirt
       Contact with another car
       Contact with a wall
       Use the rewind feature
       Draft another racer
       Get drafted by another racer
    All of those are simple enough to avoid, and to avoid the drafting, just go
    into free race and do a hotlap.
    g. Drifting:
    Drifting is nothing new to Forza. But now, you have drift scores and 
    leaderboards, much like lap times. Well, if you're unsure how to drift, it's
    simple. Come to a turn at a manageable speed, hit the e-brake (A button), and
    steer the turn. Sounds simple. To make it easier, try to use a car with AWD,
    and turn TCS off.
    As for drift scoring, to bring up the drift score HUD, press D-Pad Left. For
    your drift to be certified, the following must not happen:
       Spin more than 90° from the track
       All four wheels hit the dirt
       Hit a wall
       Use rewind
    A nice little loophole is that speed doesn't matter when coming out of your
    drift. If you think you're going to hit a wall, or drift at too far of an
    angle, you can get off the accelerator and brake. You should still get the
    Yay, the part of Forza we all know and love. There are a few changes in career,
    most notably the inclusion of Season Play. I'll get into that later. Anywho,
    you are given the choice of one of seven cars to choose. Free of cost! But, you
    get no credits otherwise. Here are the cars:
    2009 Chevrolet Aveo5 LT
    2009 Citroën C4 VTS
    2009 Ford Fiesta Zetec S
    2009 Honda Fit Sport
    2009 Nissan Versa SL
    2009 Scion xD
    2008 Toyota Yaris S
    It really doesn't matter at this stage what you choose, since the ones that
    have a low natural PI (the Aveo, for example) are upgraded from the start to
    match the C4, Fiesta and xD. I personally went with the Citroën, but only 
    because it costs the most. There are probably better reasons to go with another
    one of those cars (such as the RS200 engine swap in the Fiesta, or the LS3 swap
    in the Aveo5), but to each his own.
    Now, let's get into the meat of the career, shall we?
    a. Season Play:
    Now, you can set a calendar of when you'll race. You can fill weekday dates
    with a choice of races (which can change depending on your car, so switch to
    get something new). On each Sunday, you will have a championship race, which
    is determined by the season year:
       Year 1: Class E
       Year 2: Class C
       Year 3: Class A
       Year 4: Class R3
       Year 5: Class R2
       Year 6 and beyond: Class R1
    You can go longer than 6 years if you so choose. Also note that if you get all
    gold in every race you run during a season, you get a hefty bonus at the end of
    the season.
    b. Events:
    If you stick with Season Mode, you're going to get a dynamic calendar of which
    you can fill with a set amount of events. That's all good, but you can still
    strategically determine what events you want between the championship races.
    i.    Testing:
    These are the very first races you'll be engaged in. And they're simple. Don't
    worry about them, just race them with minimal upgrades as necessary.
    Asian Open
    European Open
    All-American Open
    FWD Open
    RWD Open
    AWD Open
    Two-Door Challenge
    Three-Door Challenge
    Four-Door Challenge
    Five-Door Challenge
    ii.   Amateur:
    Races you should get into quite quickly. They're short and give you a decent
    amount of cash, perfect for lower levels. You won't need to upgrade much for
    these races, since you won't have high competition.

    Asian Elite Open
    French Elite Open

    Eight-Cylinder Supreme GT
    Ten-Cylinder Salute
    12-Cylinder Flagship Trophy
    iii.  Manufacturer Races:
    You're restricted to a certain type of car in these races. They aren't as
    restricting as it sounds though, for the most part (some will only allow you
    to choose from one of three cars). You're still allowed upgrades though, so
    with enough cash, skill can be (somewhat) taken out of the equation.

    iv.   Horsepower Races:
    You're restricted to a certain amount of horsepower in your car. These races
    are a lot different from FM2. While you could dominate with a light car like
    the Lotus Elise and Exige, you now have class limits. Preparing for these
    races is a bit tougher, but if you don't race with high horses anyways, you
    should do fine.

    BRIDGESTONE 500HP Run-Off (A Class)
    MOTUL 600HP Run-Off (S Class)
    The K&N 700HP Challenge (S Class)
    v.    Speedway Races:
    Do you like circles? Hate left turns? Then these are the races for you! Okay,
    so I can't promise you won't turn left, but you'll be put on oval tracks for
    each of the races.
    With these races, you don't have to concentrate on all the stats. You can
    ignore brakes completely, and concentrate less on handling and launch. As long
    as you're fast, you can draft your way into first and hold onto it.
    Classes F to R1
    [Closed Course Set, unlocked at Level 10]
    vi.   Point to Point Races:
    Instead of racing in a circuit, you race from one line to another. Simple
    enough, you get three one-on-one races. Some of these races can be intense,
    but otherwise, prepare by class like usual. Also, note that you get paid per
    Fujimi Kaido F Series
    Amalfi Coast E Series
    Nurburgring D Series
    Fujimi Kaido C Series
    Amalfi Coast B Series
    Nurburgring A Series
    Fujimi Kaido S Series
    Amalfi Coast R3 Series
    Nurburgring R2 Series
    Fujimi Kaido R1 Series
    vii.  Super Lap Races:
    These are, personally, my favourite races. It's a class race, but you're put
    on a very long track, and given only one lap. I love it so much because you're
    racing on the Nurburgring, Fujimi Kaido and the Amalfi Cost the whole time, and
    those are the most beautiful tracks.
    Pretty much, prepare for these races like you would any other class-restricted
    race. Note that the tracks are always Nurburgring, Fujimi Kaido and Rally di
    Classes F to R1
    viii. Drag Races [unlocked at level 15]:
    Straight line speed may be your idea of victory here, and you're partly right.
    You'll want to have a good launch as well, and it's key to victory. Otherwise,
    you can ignore brakes and handling, you won't need them. As well, these races
    aren't separated by class, so go nuts.

    650 HP RWD Shoot-Out
    700 HP RWD Shoot-Out
    [Professional Series, unlocked at level 15]
    ix.   Factory Spec Races:
    Upgrades need not apply here, since you'll be using the cars as bare as you
    bought them, mechanically. You need to rely on your driving skills here, or you
    won't be going far. If you need help, you can look for tuning set-ups for the
    later races, as the F430 has some tuning options, and the FXX has a fullly
    tunable set-up.

    Porsche 911 GT3 Trophy
    Ferrari F430 Trophy
    FXX Trophy
    x.    Regional/GT Races:
    In these races, you're limited to a certain region or a certain GT class, with
    the exception of the World Tour, where it's a more basic version of the
    Championship series. Again, prepare like you would normally for a class race
    in any other series, but keep the region (and for some of the Asian tour races,
    the year) in mind. As for the GT races and the LMP race, find the best out of
    what you're given, but for the most part, they're equal, since you'll be class
    limited anyways. If you can without going over class limit, drop the restrictor
    plates and get going.

    To find out whether a car fits this this body style, when you are looking at
    cars, press Y to bring up the Car List, scroll right with RB until you get to
    "Body Style". You can find more obvious body types (such as Coupe, Saloon,
    Super Car), but it'll also tell you what GT class and LMP class as well. Thanks

    x.    Endurance Races [Unlocked at Level 10]:
    While these races have class restrictions, you will have to prepare with a few
    different factors in mind. First of all, you will be pitting for tires early if
    you use racing slicks or sport tires. Second of all, plan to pit once, but
    before the competition. If you pit a lap or two before the competition, but
    with enough fuel and without losing your tires by the end of the race, you can
    get quite a jump on the competition when they are finished pitting. Be careful
    with damage as well, since the higher paycheck means a higher price at the end
    of the race. With all that said, pop in a good album and off you go!

    xi.   Championship Races:
    General class based championship series. Note that in your six seasons (if you
    choose to do them), you'll be going through six championship series (E,C,A,R3,
    R2 and R1 to be exact). The R1 championship has a handsome prize too, so these
    are important.
    If you're not doing season play, you'll have to unlock them by level.

    "What's the best car in each class?"
    As I'll say again later in this guide, use cars you love. Nevertheless, use
    cars proper for the class. I love the Volkswagen Bora, but I know it'll be a
    dog in higher classes. With that being said, you need to watch for some
    classes. In the higher S-class races, you'll almost certainly have to deal with
    the most challenging trio of cars in the game: The Bugatti Veyron, the McLaren
    F1 GT and the Saleen S7. The Veyron isn't trouble if you're on a track that
    has a lot of turns, but if you're on Le Mans, I suggest you bring something
    with speed. That being said, here's the cars I found worked well in each class:
    F: Volkswagen Bora
    E: Honda CR-X SiR, Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint
    D: Volvo S60 R, Porsche 944 Turbo
    C: Nissan Skyline GT-R R34, Infiniti G35 (w/ AWD and RB26DETT engine), Mercedes
       CLK-55, Audi S5 (if you want to go with the pack)
    B: Ferrari California, '09 Cadillac CTS-V, Audi S5, Nissan 370Z
    A: Audi R8, Audi S5, Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06, Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series
    S: Audi R8 (again), Porsche Carrera GT, Lamborghini Reventon, Dodge Viper
       SRT-10 ACR.
    R3: Ferrari FXX, Mazda/Lola LMP (engine swap)
    R2: Koenigsegg CCGT, Ferrari F50 GT, Ferrari F40 Competizione, Mazda/Lola LMP
    R1: Peugeot 908
    These are only general choices, check the leaderboards for more suggestions
    (although I included a few from the leaderboards already).
    c. Level Rewards:
    Anyone from Forza 2 remembers that every time you gain a level, you unlock
    cars from a manufacturer, and a raise in discount... blah blah blah. Instead of
    that, you get a car every level. Considering how expensive some of these are,
    it's a welcome addition.

    As well, your car has levels. You get discounts for upgrades when you go up a
    car level. These stack for up to 50%, although I'm not completely sure.
    CORRECTION: You get the Camaro SS at level 9 and the Exige at 10. Thanks for
    the correction, I. Fosco!
    Not only does this game let you go under the hood of your car, it lets you put
    new toys under the hood and paint the hood to boot! Here's just a simple start
    point of how to get going.
    a. Painting:
    Don't sweat the small stuff, painting is easy if you want a simple pair of
    racing stripes. If you want something a bit more complicated, like, let's say,
    a bear, you'll have to create it using a decal (unless you want the panda that
    is included, but it's lame :( ). A tutorial is kind of hard to put here,
    because you have to learn visually. Basically, before I post a YouTube tutorial
    by painter Ayo Jube (you'll see his work if you're a VIP), just a few tips from
    me. First of all, plan out your decal on paper. This actually helps a lot, you
    can scale it, plan it shape-wise, etcetera. Second of all, it's all trial and
    error with shapes. Some will fit better than others, and you'll find the one
    perfect for the job. Without further ado, here's Ayo Jube's tutorial on how
    to paint Homer Simpson:
    An example of something simple I did:
    Now let your creativity go wild!
    b. Tuning:
    Tuning is quite vital to not only winning with R-class cars, but it can help
    you get closer to the top of the leaderboards. You can improve your launch,
    steering, even speed with a good tune. Even if you're not a great tuner (like
    myself), you can go and buy tunes off the Storefront.
    Tuning Components
    Tire Pressure:
    Changing the tire pressure can help with steering if you lower it, and can help
    with speed if you heighten it. If you're drag racing, turn it up high,
    otherwise, use your discretion.
    Changing the gear ratios of your car can greatly improve your acceleration and
    launch. That's if you know what you're doing. The manufacturer usually has a
    decent gear tune, and even if you've made upgrades, if you've bought a new
    transmission, you should be fine. If you do need to adjust it
    A lot of what you find here can help reduce either understeer or oversteer,
    and can change the turn timing. It's a bit more complicated than the anti-
    roll bars, but can help greatly.
    Anti-Roll Bars:
    These are pretty much essential on heavy muscle cars, and cars that overflow
    (for the lack of a better word) with understeer. Adjusting the front
    anti-roll bars up and the rear down can help reduce understeer. The opposite
    goes for reducing oversteer. I find tuning this is possibly the easiest for
    a beginner, and gets good results.
    If your suspension isn't responding well, then you should tune it here.
    Stiffening the springs, helping to make the car feel more responsive and
    less understeery. Opposite helps eliminate some oversteer. As well, you 
    can tune your ride height. You can't really lower it enough to screw you
    over, so lower away for cornering!
    More spring settings. More stuff that adjusts oversteer and understeer.
    Despite getting 
    This can really improve your cornering if adjusted right. On the same note, it
    is easy to adjust this right. More downforce for cornering, less for speed. 
    Simple, no?
    I don't find this menu too useful if I have ABS on. But if ABS isn't on, this
    is really helpful. If you add pressure, you won't have to press on the brakes
    as hard to get good force, but your brakes will lock up quicker. Less braking
    pressure, and you'll get less force, and your brakes won't lock up as quickly
    as they usually would. With ABS, I find 90% is a good mark, without it, you
    can up the pressure a bit, 110-120% can help.
    Brake bias should be adjusted depending on the weight distribution of the
    car, for (I believe) better braking as well. It's not bad at 50% though.
    In Forza 2, this was perfect for getting AWD cars to act like RWD or FWD cars.
    Since you can swap out most AWD drivetrains anyways, this isn't that useful
    for that purpose. This is still good to adjust if you have a really powerful
    muscle car though.

    c. Upgrading:
    This is the easiest way to improve a car. By changing parts, you can improve a
    car's stats. As well, you can add cosmetic modifications that do nothing, like
    giving it DUB rims and a flamboyant bodykit... if you're into that sort of
    stuff. Note that not all sections apply for each car.
    Upgrade components
    Horsepower, baby! Go here if you want to swap for racing parts in your engine.
    For the most part, these improve speed, acceleration and launch, while some
    make the engine slightly lighter.
    Platform and Handling:
    As it says, what you have here are modifications that help make you lighter
    and handle better. Most of the stuff here is essential, although you can avoid
    the roll cage and still do well.
    Basically your transmission, clutch, driveline and differential. Most of which
    make your car lighter. In the transmission's case, it's a little complicated.
    While it may display that your launch/acceleration goes down with the race
    tranny, you can change it back with some quick tuning. If your speed is going
    down, you can fix that with tuning as well. If you have a car with four gears,
    then you absolutely need to swap transmission, as it'll give you a boost in 
    speed without many of the drawbacks!
    Pretty much change tire compound, tire width, rims and rim width. You can get
    some nice handling, launch and braking upgrades with upgrades here. Or, you
    can pimp your ride, and put some phat 21" chromes on yo ride, dawg.
    The main options that will (for the most part) always be there for this section
    are your front and rear mods. 98% of production cars have a Forza aero mod for
    these two areas, which greatly improve handling (while reducing speed), and are
    the only adjustable aero parts. Some cars (about 33%-ish) have other body kits
    as well. These may not be as effective (with the exception of hood upgrades),
    but can cosmetically change the look of your ride as well.
    The most fun part of upgrading, you can swap engines, switch your drivetrain
    between FWD, RWD and AWD, and swap aspiration by adding single or twin
    turbochargers, or screw/centrifugal superchargers.
    "FWD vs. RWD vs. AWD"
    Good question. Basically, AWD gives you a significant improvement in launch,
    while weighing down your car. RWD is best for braking, and FWD is the
    lightest. You'll usually get the most out of AWD, and considering 95% of
    leaderboard cars are AWD, it's your best bet if you want to be competitive
    online. Otherwise, go with what you prefer.
    "Turbocharger vs. Supercharger"
    Also a good question. Ever heard the term turbo lag? Basically, while a turbo
    may make your car more powerful, and on average, faster, it can take a while
    to kick in on cars. Superchargers, on the other hand, average out the power.
    Although not as powerful, you get the oomph as soon as the car starts moving.
    You see that graph in the bottom left corner? Use that as a reference of
    whether you should supercharge or turbocharge a car. If the graph has too
    much of a jump between 2k-3k RPM, then you'll know there'll be a lot of turbo
    lag, and should go with a screw supercharger. Avoid the centrifugal if you

    The stars of the game. With over 400 to choose from, you're guaranteed to find
    something you like. From your everyday city car, to supercars you'd be lucky
    to find roaming the streets, you can get them all. This list is more of a
    checklist/preview. I'll list every car in this section. DLC and VIP cars are 
    included, but their specific packs are also included at the end of the list. 
    If you really want to skip this list, and don't like the inaccuracy of 
    scrolling, Ctrl+F "b. DLC Cars/Other Special Cars:", it'll make it easier.
    "What car should I use?"
    Honestly, you should always use a car you love. If you're a fan of the Toyota
    Supra, for example, go out and get one and use it for races that it fits. I
    suggest that you have multiple cars for multiple classes. Quick Upgrade may be
    easy, but it isn't accurate and will ask to buy parts to up/downgrade.

    b. DLC Cars/Other Special Cars:
    Special Cars:
    Well, unfortunately Turn 10 couldn't just put every car in existence on disc,
    so we have DLC. As well, because they want to make VIPs feel special, they also
    got some exclusive cars too.
    VIP Cars:
    2008 Aston Martin DBS
    2009 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1
    2007 Ferrari 430 Scuderia
    2007 Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera
    2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS (997)
    As of now, the only way to get the VIP cars (and in effect, VIP Membership) is
    to have bought the Forza 3 Limited Collector's Edition.
    As well, the dreaded "Unicorn" cars are back. Well, not the same one, but the
    concept is. Basically, you'll have to win a Turn 10 contest or have an insane
    amount of money to bid for one on the Auction House. These are them:

    If you remember the achievements from Forza 2, you'd remember that they took a
    lot of time and effort, too much for the majority of gamers. Even I would admit
    that I never got 1000/1000 on Forza 2. Well, the achievements have been toned
    down on 3, quite a lot. You still have the level achievements, but there are
    no more "Own every car in [country]" achievements anymore.
    Connoisseur: Own (at least) one car from every manufacturer (50 GS)
      Tips: Look at the gift list to see what cars you get free.
    Director: Complete your first Forza Motorsport movie (10 GS)
    Buyer: Buy something using the storefront (10 GS)
      Tips: Free stuff counts.
    Sniper: Win an auction by outbidding someone (10 GS)
      Tips: Look for something cheap with one bid and a very small amount of time
            left. Usually, you won't get outbid by the same person. Otherwise, it's
            all luck.
    Auctioneer: Sell a car in the Auction House (10 GS)
    Year 1: Complete the first year of Season Play. (50 GS)
    Year 2: Complete the second year of Season Play. (50 GS)

    Q: Why don't I have [name] car on the game?
    A: Did you install disc two? Is it a DLC car? Is it a VIP car? If the answer
       to the first question is no, then do that. If it's a DLC car, chances are
       you don't have the DLC, and therefore don't have the car. If it's a VIP car,
       and you're not a VIP member, you're out of luck. If it isn't a disc two/DLC/
       VIP, then it's not in the game.
    Q: I got a message saying I sold something from the storefront, but I didn't
       get any cash, nor did I get the achievement. Why?
    A: It's kind of odd, but you just need to keep pressing the "Receive Credits"
       button and you'll eventually get it.
    Q: What parts/upgrades do you need to buy to be able to tune the vehicle?
       (M. Demeo)
    A: If you want to make tuning changes, always look at the part's description 
       when you're buying it (usually have to press Y twice to bring it up where
       your PI and stats would be). This will tell you whether or not you can
       adjust something.
       Specifically, to open up all tuning options, you'll need to fully upgrade
       your brakes (for brake pressure/balance), suspension (camber, toe in,
       caster, suspension stifness and ride height), anti-roll bars (anti-roll bar
       stifness), transmission (gear ratios), front bumper/rear wing (aerodynamics)
       and differential (differential).
    Q: Do I need XBL Gold to use the Auction House/Storefront?
    A: Yes.
    Q: I'm a VIP and I haven't gotten the Turn 10 theme?
    A: Turn 10 made a mistake with this, but they sent a message on Forza to all
       VIPs with a link to the theme.
    Q: Want to race? What's your Gamertag?
    A: Sorry, I don't have that much time to race. As much as I'd like to race
       everyone who asks me, I just don't have that time.
