Basically, i want to know if there is any difference in career mode if you start with exotic over tuner. Or the muscle car class. Thanks for you help.

Tuners are great handling but weedy tuned engines so not as much speed.
Muscles have huge engines and great speed but handle like a peice of you-know what.
Exotics are in the middle, big engines, good speed and good handling. (Although in my experience the Brera is more like a tuner).

He means the end rewards and what not, not car performance.

I have not found any difference between the 3. The same cars are unlocked and you most likely will end up using an exotic to finish the game.

I beat the exotic, muscle, and am on the last race in tuner. I never got the R8. The only Audi was the Le Mans Quattro that the last guy drives, and a plain version.

But you dont have to drive tuners if you choose that class. You can drive anything, but the unlckables will be for tuners.

exotic are the best (and the proper way to go), i mean, why would a tuner be serving on these forums?

easy as 1 - 2 - 3:
the starting car (forgot its name) --> Benz AMG --> Benz SLR

Best car to start with, (unfortunatley) is the Nissan 240. Unlcok it with the challenge series. It cost $20,000 and the upgrades are also cheap, but have great effect. Mine had full handling after upgrades (I have 3 profiles, one with each class). It ruled the streets untill I got a SLR McLaren.

Brera - DB9 (Wolf's) - Murcielago.

Found Bushido (RX7) canyon duel easiest (overtook him on 1st straight with the DB9), then 21st street, TFK and finally with the Audi R8/Le mans Quattro.

Yup, exotics are the way to go. Tuners are annoyingly slow, and I'm too impatient to get a muscle round a corner. (Also the gear change takes 3 months sometimes.)

People are going offftopic.
He wants to know if the rewards and vonuses are different if you choose Tuner, Exotic, or Muscle.

The ONLY difference I have noticed is with tuners, I haven't got the Carrera GT yet, and I usually had it by know.

This may help explain why some cars can't be found at points of the game.

I've checked that out, it doesn't really tell you how to unlock all the cars. I'm waiting for a decent walkthrough to hit the web besides that uncompleted one by some guy named EvIL_RaCeR.

Walkthrough? Why do you need a Walkthrough for a racing game?

Walkthrough? Why do you need a Walkthrough for a racing game?

It shows which cars are the best without the need for you to use all of them to see for yourself. In a racing game with simple physics such as NFSC, the subjective factor plays a much lesser role. I miss those times when the stats of a car actually mattered depending on the track (take for example NFS2: the McLaren was unbeatable on faster tracks, but the F50 and the Lotus could catch up to it on twisty courses like Mystic Peaks).

Exactly what i used..the Viper is faast.. that would be cool if Hennessey signed with EA on the next game.

I found Angie's the easiest, even though I raced her last.

Not much of a difference; just that Neville and Sal will have cars that will have the same vehicle class.
ei:
If you chose your destination as Tuner, Neville recieves the Mazda 3
If you chose your destination as Muscle, Neville recieves the Chrysler 300C
