III. Bonus Cars
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: bonus cars are not available in Underground Mode.

Where are the bonus cars? (Nismo Sentra, VORTEX car,
Petey Pablo Car, Mystikal car, Rob Zombie Car)

Bonus cars can only be found in Quick Race. These rides
are not available for Underground Mode. To use them, first select
'Quick Race' from the 'Main Menu', then choose a race type
from the six available. Then scroll thru the selection of cars.

The name of the bonus car will not be displayed, therefore
find the type of car model that the bonus ride belongs to.
(e.g. the Nismo Sentra will only have the text 'Nissan Sentra'
displayed on the top right, don't go looking for Nismo Sentra!)

If you still can't find it, wait for the car to appear in view
(you will hear the roar of an engine). If you look carefully,
the car will not be in one plain color but have a unique vinyl
on it (customization). Else the car selected is not the bonus
car. You will have to scroll through the list to find the other
car (with the same model name). It should be close to the end
of the list if you scroll all the way to the right.

For example, the Nismo Sentra will have the text 'Nissan Sentra'
on the top right of the screen, but if you wait for the car to
appear the text 'Nismo' and some Japanese characters can be seen
on the side of the car.

If you still can't find the bonus car you're looking for,
go through the style rewards list to make sure that you've
unlocked the particular car first. Note: bonus cars are not
available in Underground Mode. I can't stress that enough.

Below is a partial list of bonus cars that can be unlocked:

* Nismo Sentra/2004 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V (Style Reward No. 12)
* VORTEX car/2000 Acura Integra Type-R (Style Reward No. 4)
* Petey Pablo Car/1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX (Style Reward No. 31)
* Mystikal Car/2002 Toyota Celica GT-S (Style Reward No. 40)
* Rob Zombie Car/2003 Nissan 350Z (Style Reward No. 62)

them in the order in which I've unlocked it. I may update this to
reflect the unlockables correctly in the near future. The Race Victory
Rewards are correct)

(Note: Style Rewards removed from Underground Mode. Created a new section
for Style Rewards. Please refer to that section for a complete list
of unlockable Style Rewards)

toughest drivers on the street and prove you are the ultimate racer.

instead of in the middle of the road.

From: Jose
The Low-down:
With performance mods up for grabs, be top of the
table after this 4 round Drag Tournament
downtown.

The traffic is your biggest enemy here. You will race
the same track four times; two in reverse, so it's a
good idea to memorize the lane changes. If you keep
losing then maybe it's time to upgrade that Civic to
a Skyline. You don't have to finish all four in 1st
place, just get enough points to win the tournament.

O.K. You went through 85 challenges without a sweat. Now it's time to
test your mad skillz. The best comparison I can think of for this level
is that it's as close as you get to an end level boss in a racing game.
Lots of people had problems beating that RX-7/Impreza to the finish line.
Not that the traffic have been helpful. If you're totally frustrated by
this stage, here's a tip. Downgrade your Engine/Exhaust, Drivetrain,
and E.C.U. Packages to Stock. Then try that race again. Odds are you'll
get a 1st place finish after an attempt or two. Best explanation I can
offer is that your opponents are handicapped if your ride ain't the
fastest. This trick should work too if you opt to change the car model
instead of doing downgrades, for example a Skyline to a Civic. Do
everything you can to downgrade the top speed.

If you're having problems navigating through the tunnel:
While entering this tunnel, keep to the right lane if possible. When
you're close to the 90 degree turn, drive straight on so you end up
on the left lane. You may have to brake a little during this part.
Then try and change to the right lane.

VII. Style Rewards
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Okay, most likely you're here for this section. ryan fanshaw drifted his
way through all the Style Rewards (several times!) to get us this list, and
I have reasons to believe that it's the first complete style rewards list,
anywhere (and accurate, to boot!) If you decide to copy anything else from
this FAQ, I'm alright with it, but if you want the list below, try and
point your readers to this FAQ, because I think they should at least know
the story behind how this list came about. If you can't do that, then please
credit it to the dude who went through all the trouble to prepare it for you.

He completed the style rewards, had them listed, and found out his brother
was winning it in a different order than he was. So he restarted the game and
earned all the rewards again, making sure to get one reward per race (thus
ensuring that the rewards are in the correct order). He deserves mad props
for his work, but told me he wants no credit! I had to beg him to let me
give him due recognition in the FAQ else there's no way I can use it. You
don't use someone else's stuff without asking. In my opinion, this is the
definite list all thanks to one man. Without his efforts we'd still be
dreaming about unlocking the reward that comes after Eddie's Skyline.

And don't ask how good his drifting is. He can do this list again in his
sleep.

   FAQ incorrect?

A. The last race is stated as 112/111 on the top right. For ease
   of use, I will use that as a reference. The additional race
   you're refering to would be the first race, before
   challenge 1/111. After completing this race would you be
   able to choose one of the five cars to use in Underground Mode
   and subsequently begin the first challenge proper. This is
   what will be stated in the FAQ until I am informed otherwise.

-

Q. How many challenges are there in Underground Mode?

A. 112, although the indicator will always show 111 in total.

-

Q. Are there any cops in Need for Speed Underground?

A. Need for Speed Underground does not have any police that will pursue
   those who violate the speed limits in the game. (source: official site)

-

Q. Which out of the five cars at the beginning of a new profile
   is best for drift races?

A. Miata. Though it's not a good choice for drag (engine blows
   too easily).

-

Q. What are the different Style Points available?

A. Plus: Drafting, Hang Time, Powerslide, Clean Section (+50),
   Clean Lap (+200), Clean Race (+500), Near Miss (+100),
   Shortcut (+100), Head Start (+100), Lead Lap (+100),
   Victory (+500), NOS Purge (+150), 360 (+200)
   Minus: Hit Traffic

   Note: You can only get the style points for a successful 360
   three times in a race (200 x 3). All subsequent 360s will be
   ignored. Victory and Clean Race style points are awarded once,
   at the end of a race. All other points are multiplied by
   the number of successful attempts.

   Note: Shortcut style points are awarded once in every race,
   for each shortcut. Taking the same shortcut multiple times
   will only bag you that particular style points bonus once,
   but taking different shortcuts in a race will reward you
   with a style point bonus per shortcut.

-

Q. What about the NOS Purge bonus?

A. The correct way to do a NOS purge! Gain 150 style points during
   the count down by doing a full rev and holding it, then tap the
   NOS button. You will know you've done a NOS purge when smokes
   come out from the sides of your car.

   To get a NOS Purge bonus, tap the NOS button at the start of a race,
   just before the counter reaches 0. It's worth 150 points and has no
   multiplier so it's only worth doing once! (info by Andy Turner)

   Right before the race starts, press the NOS button. A little exhaust
   from the port will blow through the vents/edge of your hood. It looks
   like when a bull snorts and it's purely for show, but you get 150 points
   for doing it. It just takes a light tap, no need to waste any of your
   NOS for later.

   That plus head start is a great way to start every race with a
   250 style points bonus. (info by Josh)

-

Q. How can I drift better?

A. If you're using a Skyline, try the RX-7. Else turn off stability
   control from the Car Menu (under Main Menu, Options)

-

Q. Do you get anything extra for beating Underground Mode on
   Hard difficulty?

A. Presumably not. Although I have not heard of anyone completing
   such a feat.

-

Q. Can I carry over the rewards earned/unlocked to another profile?

A. No. By starting a new profile, you begin afresh and would have
   to play thru Underground Mode or Quick Races to earn the rewards
   again. This applies to all unlockable tracks, vinyls, upgrades,
   bonus cars and such.

-

Q. Why is challenge 86/95 so difficult?

A. Have you tried the race level in mafia?
   Please refer to the Underground Mode walkthrough for tips on
   beating the challenge.

   One angle of looking at it is that it has something to do with
   top speed. The AI uses the top speed to their advantage, so
   if you're not comfortable with those corners you'll definitely
   lose out in the race. Reducing the top speed will set a handicap
   that all opponents will follow suit, thus making it difficult to
   put the catch-up logic to good use.

-

Q. I got beaten by a supposedly 'weaker' car. Why does all car
   models perform the same?

A. Not all cars are alike. Please refer to the 'Cars' section for
   all the minor differences. The difference is miniscule therefore
   it's easy to mistake that all rides perform the same. (although
   this does make some of the cars slightly inaccurate compared to
   their actual counterparts)

-

Q. I've heard rumors of personalized number plates. Is this true?

A. The rumors are false. You're stuck with "UNDRGND" like the rest of us,
   if that helps.

-

Q. I have unlocked new cars earned in Underground Mode, but when I Trade In
   the stats stay the same. I don't understand the point of having a different
   car but stuck with the same stats. Does the car model really matter?

A. Stats are not the same, they are just not shown there. Here's how to view
   stats for the car you'd like to change to. Select a a car to "Trade In"
   and press Enter. A performance screen will show up. This is the current
   performance stats of your current car. Press Enter again and that'll be
   the stats of the car you're purchasing. Stats change as upgrades are
   acquired over the course of the game.

-

Q. What's the best car in the game?

A. You have two choices here. The Skyline has speed and control. On the other
   hand, the RX-7's handling is slightly better and pretty useful to use
   in Drift races.
-

Q. During one of the loading screens, it says "Learn how to drift by
   watching the tutorial videos." How can I access the videos?

A. Select Quick Race from the Main Menu, highlight Drag or Drift and press "T".

-------------------------
b. Vinyl/Paints/Body Kits
-------------------------

Q. How do you change vinyl color?

A. Go to the Change Vinyl screen, where 4 vinyl layers are shown. Make
   sure the vinyl you want to change has a white rectangle around it.
   Don't select it. There are 2 buttons below it that says 'layer order'
   and 'vinyl color'. Use your mouse to click on 'vinyl color' and
   choose your color using the keyboard.

-

Q. How do you change vinyl color (PS2)?

A. Go to the Change Vinyl screen, where 4 vinyl layers are shown. Make
   sure the vinyl you want to change has a white rectangle around it.
   Don't select it. Press square to enter the color selection screen.

-

Q. I have tried clicking on vinyl color at the Change Vinyl screen
   but nothing happens, and when I click on the arrows the layer order
   changes. What gives?

A. Firstly, you have to select a vinyl (Lighting 3, Tribal 3, etc.)
   Then click on 'vinyl color' with your mouse to enter the color
   selection screen. For vinyls that carry a "2" or "3" label, you have
   to choose 2 or 3 colors for them.

   Note: Colors for Unique and Manufacturer Vinyls cannot be changed.
   You can only "blend" their colors with your car by using
   Pearlescent Paint.

-

Q. How do you get Level 2/3 Paints?

A. Level 2 Paint can be unlocked in Underground Mode, challenge 23
   and Level 3 Paint can be unlocked in challenge 65.

-

Q. Is it possible create your own vinyl for use in the game?

A. No, sorry.

-

Q. What is a wide body kit?

A. A wide body kit extends the body of the car laterally to cover
   the tires. They look like molded mud flaps that connects
   the bumper to the skirt. You unlock them in challenge 110.
   And no, you can't have them both.

-

Q. Upgrading to a wide body kit means new wheels (tires that are
   wider), thus improving acceleration and handling. Am I right?

A. No. Wide body kits are listed as visual upgrades. If visual
   upgrades affect a car's performance, all cars would thus have
   the same parts to get the best performance possible, therefore
   defeating the purpose of having different visual upgrades.
-

Q. How can I get both wide body kits? Do I have to play through
   Underground Mode again?

A. Simple. You can't. There's absolutely no way you can have both
   and swap kits in-between races. If you've selected one you're
   stuck with that unless you begin a new Underground Mode with
   another profile. This applies to all Unique Rewards.

   Also, you can't carry over unlocked and earned rewards from
   one profile to another.

-

Q. How can I get all the unique vinyls that Samantha offers me?

A. (Please refer to the above question)

-

Q. Quick. The Mantis or the Vapor body kit?

A. Vapor. Looks better on most rides.

-----------------------
c. Performance Upgrades
-----------------------

Q. Is there any difference in performance when choosing brand packages for
   upgrades?

A. No. Brand makes no difference. All the brand packages perform equally well.

-

Q. Best unique performance upgrade combination?

A. Engine, E.C.U. and trans. If you're looking for a second opinion,
   put turbo into the mix for better acceleration. For handling,
   tires and brakes would be the right choice.

----------
d. Rewards
----------

Q. Does selection of difficulty level for each challenge affects the
   rewards given on completion?

A. To my knowledge, no.

-

Q. I have collected Eddie's Nissan Skyline Style Reward. Is there any more?

A. Nope. That's the last of the 114 Style Rewards you can unlock in NFS:U.

-----------
e. Profiles
-----------

Q. Can I have more than one car per profile to use in Underground
   Mode?

A. No. You're limited to one custom car per profile. You have to
   trade in to use another car. There is no garage option.

-

Q. Is it possible to unlock all unique parts for one driver profile?

A. No, sorry.


---------
f. Cheats
---------

Q. Why don't the PC cheats work?

A. The above cheats should work if you follow the instructions carefully.
   I do not provide support for cheats, so I appreciate it if you could
   refrain from asking me to come over to your place to input the cheats
   for you. Unless you promise to drive me around in your Skyline or RX-7.
   Unlikely, since if you do own one of those hot rides you wouldn't
   need cheats to beat the game. I will accept corrections and new
   cheats, though.

-

Q. Why don't the PS2 cheats work?

A. I have not tested them since I don't own a PS2. I do not provide
   support for cheats, so I'm really appreciative if you could refrain
   from asking me to come over to your place and beat Underground Mode
   on Hard Difficulty for you just so you can have the save game in
   your hands. You can send your PS2 to me though; I promise to beat it
   for you and send you back a memory card with the save game as soon
   as I'm done.

-

Q. Why doesn't the unlimited nitro code work?

A. There is no unlimited nitro code! (As far as I can tell) There's
   no such thing on the PC version, and the PC version should mirror
   the console's. Therefore if one version doesn't have it, it's
   unlikely the others will. Why would you want unlimited nitro?
   There's not enough room in your car for all that many tanks.
   The game is already unrealistic as it is. Give it a rest.

   There could be an unlimited nitro trainer for the PC version if you
   look hard enough, although I wouldn't recommend it. The game is
   beatable without cheating, and there is absolutely no support for
   trainers at all. So if you do go ahead with the idea don't come
   crying when you encounter problems with Underground later.

g. Technical
------------

Q. (PC) How do I copy my profile/custom car to play on another PC? Where
   does Underground store saved game profile information?

A. Saved Game information can be found at this location:
   (C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\NFS Underground).
   Remember to enable "Show Hidden Files" to be able to locate the
   Application Data directory.

   You'll be able to save and re-import this information into your game
   (if you have a re-format, or any other data loss) as long as you put it
   into the same directory. (source: official site)

-

Q. How do you turn off the slow-mo cam?

A. Select OPTIONS, then CAMERA, and move the Jump Cameras slider
   all the way to the left.

-

Q. Can I import my own music (MP3's) into Need for Speed Underground?

A. No, the game does not support imported music files. However, you can
   mute the game music (set it to 0) and use a media player to play your
   music in the background.

-

Q. Is there a replay option?

A. The replay option is not available in NFS:U, unlike previous NFS in the
   series.

-

Q. Is there a rear view mirror option?

A. Yes. Although the rear mirror view is only available from
   bumper cam mode. Press the 'Esc' key to bring up the
   Pause Menu, then select 'Camera'. Choose 'Bumper Cam' for
   your Favourite Drive Camera. Then return to the previous menu
   and choose 'Display'. The rearview mirror option should appear now.
   Turn it on. Note: This option will not appear unless you have
   already selected 'Bumper Cam' for your Favourite Drive Camera.

-

Q. Is there language support?

A. Yes. Although you have to mess around with the registry.
   (only attempt this if you know what you're doing!)
   No instructions. I trust that with the sparse info provided
   below, you should be able to change the language. Else, there's
   a file on the web that helps you do the same although you may
   have to look real hard for it.
   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\EA GAMES\Need For Speed Underground
   Name: Language
   Options: English US, Dutch, Spanish, Swedish, French, German, Italian
   Bear in mind that when receiving messages in the Underground Mode, sound
   bites will not be played, and all cutscenes will still be in English.
   And no, the tracks are still in English no matter how much you want
   to hear Lil Jon rap in Spanish.

-

Q. Will there be any downloadable content (Paint Jobs, Cars, etc.) for
   Need for Speed Underground?

A. Due to the compatibility between the PS2 console and the PC, there will be
   no downloadable content available for the game. The reason for this being
   that both platforms must remain exactly the same in order to be compatible.
   Any change to one must be made to the other. (source: official site)

-

Q. Is there online support for Cube/Box?

A. No. Online support is only available for PS2 and PC users only.

-

Q. (PC) How do I activate motion blur? It's blurred out in the
   Display Settings.

A. If it's blurred out, most likely your display card does not support that
   option. The only way you can get motion blur to work is to obtain a
   new graphics card. Anyway, the blur effect is not a must-see option.
   I have seen it in GTA and MGS on the PC, it really doesn't improve
   gameplay (and will cause eye discomfort over time). Reason being
   blur effects do not translate well on the PC, only on TV.

   (This goes the same for crowd option)

   No driver updates can help you here. My guess is that these options
   are not available for "pre-DirectX 9" graphics card owners.

-

Q. (PC) How do I activate headlights in the game, similar to what we see
   in the tutorial?

   You can only enable headlights if your graphics card support such
   option. As the tutorial is a video cutscene it may mislead you to
   believe that the headlights option is available for your system.
   This is not true. Please refer to the question regarding motion blur
   for more details.
