Usually when Im out of money I just do speed challenges. There is one where you need to reach 170mph in heavy traffic and you get $15,000 from it. Its not alot but if you do it enough. ;PLiaM ™

Drive ALL the roads to discover ALL the races/time trials/speed events/car delivery missions/package delivery missions/hitchhikers/model missions
Don't finish the delivery missions (either type) unless you have done them perfectly (no reduction on the meter), for the car delivery mission this makes a HUGE difference in the money you get.I'd rather be topless !
car delivery missions have no time limit, so drive SAFE & take your time in those. And as mentioned, you get a hefty bonus for delivering the car w/PERFECT.
80,000 + perfect bonus (40,000) = 120,000
90,000 + 45,000(for perfect) = 135,000 (i think)
99,999 + perfect bonus (49,999?) = 139,999 (if i remember these numbers right)(and there is only a few of these)
the 'Hitchhiker' missions give you enough time to get to the destination if you do @ least 120mph (not sure the kph). The courier have no drivign gauge, so you can take shortcuts to get to the destination, but be careful of cops, as all these 'extra' missions are 'Single Player' missions.To Finish First,First You Must Finish
brilliant i will give them all a shot. thanks a lot guys might start again as i have done a few delivery missions without being perfect
Well welcome to the site!...I Still Dawdle Round These Ends...
One thing that sucks is you can't do the delivery missions again once you complete them. I think your best route for finding new races and stuff is to just cruise. Good luck to you mate, it's a great game and this is a great place to hang out for help. People on this board are very helpful!
Oh if you want some more help with the delivery missions ...
The Mercedes 300SL one is a pain ... the GPS gives you a route over the mountains and as the car sits very low it often bottoms out and gives you 'damage' even when going Very Slow. So I did this the easy way and drove around the mountains, headed south and took the dual carriageway around the bottom of the mountains. As mentioned above the Delivery missions have no time limit and so just take it easy ... which is really difficult if it's your first time in a Zonda or an F1 (well was for me) and all you want to do is floor it. If you do get some 'damage' just restart the mission (it's worth it for the money).
Oh and another piece of advice the 'Tantalus' time trial can be quite stressful. Use a solid handling car, take it easy through the twisty bits and floor it on the straights (you'll know what I mean when you get there).
Good luckI'd rather be topless !
brilliant thanks a lot guys, all your help is appreciated. my gamertag is D4ve000 if anyone wants to help me out financially hehehehe
