Easy money

On any racing level in A-Spec mode, find a race with a championship circuit, and get a fast car. If you are at a lower level and have the concept car or any car above the HP shown in the requirements, or a little less HP as long as you can drive well, you can do this trick. Select "Championship", race the first two races, and then quit. Repeat this as many times as desired. The higher your racing level, the more money you can get. For example, you can get approximately $3,600 per race at beginner and $4,700 per race at amateur, etc.

If you are over level 11 and have a really good car, keep doing the Professional Series > Supercar Challenge > Daytona to get $17,300 every two and a half minutes for placing first.

If you are over level 17 and have a really good car, keep doing the Expert Series > Turbo Challenge > High Speed Ring to get $36,000 every three and a half minutes for placing first.

If you are over level 22 and have a really good car, keep doing the Extreme Series > European Championship > Rome Circuit (5 laps) to get $83,000 every five minutes for placing first.

If you are over level 22 and have a really good car, keep doing the European Championship > Deep Forest to get $83,000 every seven and a half minutes for placing first.

If you are over level 23 and have a really good car, keep doing the Extreme Series > American Championship > Super Speedway - Indy to get $98,000 every five minutes for placing first.

Easy Gold in National License B-5 test:

Immediately after you start the National License B-5 test, drive to the right, and crash into the white barrier. Hit the fourth or fifth white block from the entrance to the other side of the track to get a Gold trophy. Another way to do this is during the countdown, just hold Right and do not use the gas. You should eventually hit the correct area in the barrier.

Extra horsepower

Change the oil after winning or buying a car.

Easy "Driving Music" trophy

Make sure you have songs on your PlayStation 3 in your "Music" section. Then, load the game, and go to GT mode. Go to "Music Library", "Race BGM", and then "BGM Settings". Change the setting to "Personal BGM (Race)". Go to "Open PS3 System Music Folder", and add one track at a time.
