At the start menu, Press (RB), (X), (X), (B), then down. You should her a police car noise, And go to Career Mode and enter the Car Lot and you should see the police car first. (All speed and handling etc. Are fully upgraded).

Get some cops after you then go to the bus stop. Go on top of the buses. Make sure that the front of the car is at the edge of the last bus so that the cops can see you and do not lose you. Keep looking behind you because the cops will sometimes find a way on top of the buses. When they do that, just reverse as soon as you see them coming and push them off. Only one cop car will come on top of the bus. Do this for as long as desired. When you want to lose them, just reverse, park in the middle of the buses, and wait until your cool down bar fills. The cops will also drive crazy and crash into themselves, giving you extra bounty and bring up your rap sheet rankings on police vehicles immobilized and police vehicles involved.
Instead of wasting your get-out-of-jail-free cards, or wasting your hard earned money, try this: whenever you are about to get caught by the po-po, just pause and restart your 360, and when you get to your car. Tada! No strikes, and as long as you have autosave on, you will not lose any progress either. p . s . This will not mess up your system, I've been doing this for as long as I've had the game (about a year) and nothing bad has happened.
Have a good car and a good Nitro booster. Whenever you see an SUV coming at you, hit your nitrous and ram him head on. He should fly backward and explode, giving you $10,000.
If you crash your car do not force it to respawn. Instead, let the game reset your car. You will then be invulnerable and able to get away from the cops if you are in a very tight spot.
When approaching a corner at top speed, quickly assess whether or not you can get through it cleanly as fast as possible and without touching the inside or outside barriers. If you find yourself drifting (or worse, careening out of control) toward a barrier, turn on your Speedbreaker in order to regain control via increased handling and traction. During this period of slowed time, straighten out your car and put it back into an ideal racing line. Once you are straight and driving in the correct direction, quickly turn off Speedbreaker and hit the Nitrous hard to rip out of the remainder of the corner.
After getting your car upgraded with engines, suspension, brakes, etc., press Start and go to "Performance Tuning". For better handling for the Lamborghini, Porsche, Corvette, and Viper, set the "Height" of you car to "-1". If you need more gripping power either take the "Height" to "-2" or set the "Aerodynamics" to "+1". If you go overboard with the performance tuning options (anything past "+3" or "-3"), the car will actually handle worse. Go to "My Cars". Choose one of your cars and go to "Performance". Set "Ultimate Parts" on. If you won the Extra Race, put in Junkman Parts.
If you are unsure which car is the best to use when upgraded, you can upgrade all the cars that are unlocked for free in the main menu.-Go to "My Cars", choose a car that is available, and upgrade it with the parts that are available. By doing this, you will not waste all your money in career mode.
If you win the pinkslips to a Blacklist car, you may want to use the Blacklist car as your own and make the necessary upgrades to performance, as most of the upgrades will have been already made by the Blacklist owner. You do not need to spend too much money to increase the performance, handling, etc. Sometimes these cars will have upgrades that have not been unlocked yet, but most of these are usually visual. Only do this if the vehicle you have won has better attributes than the one you are currently driving in its standard mode. You can check this out in the car shop. Keep about three to five good quick cars in your safehouse.
If you get busted in a pursuit, turn off the game before saving it. When the game is played again the strike will be gone. Note: This will not work if you can only get one more strike.
After getting busted and taking a strike, turn off the system the next time you get pulled over. Resume the game and you will have no strikes again.
When completing a race, if the police radio in your car you are driving and you do not want to run from them, press Down and choose another race. Alternately, you may also jump to your safe house (must be done before you are seen or pursuit begins). If not, you must drive to it yourself in cool down mode. To jump to the safe house press Start and press Right until seen.
Blacklist milestones are things you need to do to rack up your bounty so you can challenge the next person on the Blacklist. Check out these so you know what you need to do to rack up the points. Once the milestones are completed, you must work on racking up the points. The best way to do this is to cause as much major damage as possible by taking out police cars, traffic, and crashing through shops (for example the donut shop and others you will notice in the later levels). Try to rack up as much bounty and escape before your status has reached level 4. If your status is already level 4, then choose a different car for awhile until the status goes down before returning to your favorite car. Once your status hits level 4, it is harder to get into cool down mode to find somewhere to hide. Avoid getting caught, as you will lose the bounty you have racked up during the chase.
Once you reach Razor in the Blacklist (the very last person), you must do five races. On the circuit, take as many shortcuts as you can to win. If you do not do this, he will win by a minute. Also, it is recommended that you have the best parts in your car (Junkman). Once you win those five races, you will get your BMW back. However, in order to keep it you must evade a very long pursuit. You will start with a wanted level of 6. You will have large SUVs, very fast black C5s, and even helicopters after you. Once you start the pursuit, swerve off to the left to hit the bridge-like object, and get most of the cops off your tail. After hitting that, keep to the right. You will go through a construction site. Keep to the right to hit yet another bridge-like object, and lose most of your pursuers. Ahead you will soon see a gas station. Try to hit the gas tanks. Keep hitting things until about five minutes into the pursuit. Then, Mia will call and tell you where to go. Get there as fast as possible.
After completing career mode there will still be some cars that are locked. In order to unlock them you must go to the main menu and select the "Challenge Series" option. After winning all the challenges, those cars will be unlocked. Note: At first there will be two or three challenges unlocked from 69 challenge. In order to access the locked challenges you must win the available challenges.
Hitting nitrous torques the chassis back, giving the rear tires immensely more weight under the new acceleration. The end effect is that you will go straight. If you find your tail sliding out or are about to spin out of control, hit your nitrous. You will be surprised at how fast you will get straight again. This is a great trick in combination with Speedbreaker. With the correct timing, there is no corner you cannot take at any speed.
It is critical when you get past Blacklist Member #6 to use your nitrous wisely and strategically. Instead of just holding Nitrous in desperation to get ahead, press and release it when the tachometer is about to shift to the next gear. Upon the next gear shift, continue pressing Nitrous until the next upcoming gear shift. This is the way precious milliseconds are spared.
When you are racing and want to use boost or nitrous, press it as fast as you can to have more or have it last longer.
The Timebreaker can be used to improve handling at difficult turns. It can also be used to blast cars from a roadblock. The Timebreaker adds mass to the vehicle, thus blasting cop cars easier. Hit cop cars like this, and if you are lucky you can send them spinning in the air; often hitting the level boundary in the sky.
If you are driving toward a Pursuit Breaker and there is a spike strip immediately after it, do not hit the Pursuit Breaker. During the intermission sequence, the CPU will take control of your car and will drive through the spike strip, ending the pursuit.
When there is a sharp turn coming up, use your Speed Breaker when you are a little farther away from the turn. Turn your wheel to the direction that you are turning, then turn your wheel to the opposite side. Try to use Speed Breaker only half of while you are taking the turn. If you use it for the entire turn, you will likely turn around. Once you have turned, quickly use nitrous. If done correctly, you will turn three times faster than the CPU cars.
If you are low on cash, just defeat one of the opponents on the black-list. You will get two marks to use on several different things. Do not use them on the Uniques early in the game. Instead, use them on the middle or the left "Random" choices. They should always come out to either be a big cash bonus or the opponent's pink slip.
When in your safe house and you sell a car, you will only get half of its list value. However, there is a loophole that works well for pink slips that you have won and no longer want. Take your car to the shop. Go to the parts area. Go into the body kit, spoiler, hood, rims, and roof air areas and set everything to stock. When you check out, you will see anywhere from $1,000 to $18,000, depending on what pink slip car you are stripping. Do not try this with performance parts. The shop charges you money for downgrading. Once you have stripped your car of all accessories, leave. Press Start, then go to your safe house. Sell the car, and you will have made a lot of money on the side. Do this every time you intend to sell any car.
Enable the "Burger King challenge" and "One Stop Shop marker" codes. Win the Burger King challenge. Buy the Fiat as your first car. Defeat the Bosses and win their cars. Each time, sell their car to make a large amount of money. When you get the Lamborghini Gallardo, go to the One Stop parts shop. You should have a lot of Junkman Markers and a few Boss Markers (optional) by now. Put the Junkman parts on the Lamborghini. IT should have almost maxed out acceleration and top speed with over maximum handling.
Pay attention to the destructible objects such as the donut stands, movie screens, or anything else that you can use to distract or total a cop. During a race, you can hit those objects and they will they fall and scatter all over the ground. This causes all the other racers behind you to crash or slow down, giving you more breathing room and make it easier to win the race. It works better if they are not on your rear end. Use a car that is low powered, such as a Cobalt or Golf, and only use nitrous power-ups. Do the races as they come. You will see that the CPU cars are only as tuned as your car, making it easier to win. When on a race and are desperate to be first, use Speedbreaker until the meter goes halfway. Nothing may happen at first, but you will learn that Speedbreaker makes the CPU cars go slower, thus making you advance.
Before you can do anything, you must win the Burger King Challenge. When you win it, you will unlock all unique parts (also called Junkman parts). Get any car and put all the parts except performance. Once you have your car the way you desire, go to the performance shop. Max out your car by pressing X. Then, put the Junkman parts on. Max out your car again. Then put on the Junkman parts again. Your car should be fully upgraded.
To lower the Heat from your car, go to a Stop Shop and enter. Then, change the color of your car, leave and do not move. Press Up to go back in and change the car back to its original color. Your Heat will now be lower by 1. Do this multiple times to reach condition 1 again.
Defeat the following Blacklist Boss to win the corresponding car:
