  • Bonus cars

    Complete Hot Pursuit mode with each police car to get a new car (BMW M5, Corvette, Porsche, Caprice and Lamborghini).

  • Easy cars and money

    Note: Two memory cards are required for this trick. To perform this trick with only one memory card, enter High Stakes mode and the game will search port one for a memory card before checking port two. If there is no card in port two, the game will prompt you to retry. Simply remove the card from port one and insert it into port two to have double the cars. You need to own at least one car and have enough money ($20,000) to buy a new car. Once this is accomplished, copy the Need For Speed 4 file to another memory card. While both memory cards are in the PlayStation, race in the High Stakes mode and have player two intentionally forfeit at the beginning of the race. Player one should now have two of the same car. Copy the saved data to the other card again and repeat. You can then sell all your cars for a large amount of money.

  • Easier arrests in Hot Pursuit mode

    Turn your sirens off (L1 + Up) during a hot pursuit as the police and the speeder will slow down. Then once you are ready to arrest them, turn your sirens back on. -From: abigailb@c3net.net and gwilly1@mindspring.com

  • Extra time in Hot Pursuit mode

    Do not enter a name to get more time in single player Hot Pursuit mode.

  • Turn signal and headlights

    Hold L1 and press Left or Right to use the turn signals. Hold L1 and press Up to turn on the headlights. Hold L1 and press Down to turn on the hazard lights. -From: bryanmunton@hotmail.com
