Ship date of 01/20 and freebie shipping so that means 0-14 days depending on the warehouse and freebie method utilized.

Actually, I think the Pony Express would actually have gotten it to you sooner.

They're under the practice menu. Dunno if you get any EXP or cash from them though.

Thought about requesting a pigeon, but the donkey is more weather resistant...

I need to make a printout of the car list so I can start crossing them off. Its geting hard to keep track of all 107 Miatas and 84 Skylines.

I'm up to about 300 different models in my garage now.

I did exactly that. Using my b-spec driver to grind short races in hopes of getting the "air of experience" trophy when his career bar fills. Then when he's done with 5 races, I take the cash he earned and head to the used car lot and buy up whatever I find that's interesting/unique and hasn't been checked off the list yet. A friend of mine told me there's an Iphone app that you can use, but paper is fine by me.

Does anyone know if you can have multiple copies of the exact car for the 1000 cars trophy? I really don't want to fill up my garage with cars I don't like. I'd rather get multiple colors of the cars I like rather than putting the various Yaris/Vitz and other models that I could care less about.

Yes, you can have multiples of the same car.

There was a guy on GTPlanet that said that when he got within a hundred or so cars, he just bought 100 of the $5k gokart to get the trophy. Technically, it would only cost $5 million to buy 1000 of them if you REALLY wanted the trophy, but I'll just wait until I get there... no huge rush to get the trophy, IMO.

Yeah, I'm with you on that. Some of the gold trophies on the licenses/specials I'll never achieve, so getting platinum is out of my reach. Just enjoying the ride for now.

no lie. The book that came with the collector's edition has got a visual listing of all the cars (and stats) in the game. Pages of Miata, Vitz/Yaris, Skyline variants...

I think it's a bit of a shame that they put so much effort in variations of Miata's, Vitz's and other, much slower, useless old cars.

I'd rather see more Euro & US cars!

I'm almost through A-spec, still need to do FGT in Extreme and the Endurances. I'm not into those Enduro's, so I'm not going to do them. My B-spec is in the Endurances but I need to grind to get to the next race, which actually sucks.

Also, I'm having a hard time getting gold in the last tier for the AMG Academy so I guess I won't be getting the CLK GTR. and I gave up trying to beat Loeb in his WRC thing.

I got a Red Bull X2010 for gifting someone a fully tuned Schwimmwagen so my motivation is kinda gone now.
