Easy Money
The easiest way to gain extra credits is to race and win each Cup or Challenge more than once, and then sell the extra Bonus Cars you receive.

NOTE: If you sell a prize car to it's original dealership you get $200,000 extra for it!

Free Parts
It seems there is a bug in GT which means you can make free duplicate copies of any parts you buy for a particular type of car. Try this:
  1. Buy two identical cars. Give them a different color scheme if you like.
  2. Buy loads of parts for the first one - fully spec it up if you like.
  3. Check out its list of fitted parts from the garage (you should see a list of what you just bought).
  4. Switch to the other car and get in it (the one which you haven't fitted any parts on yet) and check its fitted parts list (should be empty).
  5. Still in the second car, go race (Spot Race will do).
  6. When you get options to qualify, go to Machine Setting, then Change Parts. You'll now find you can select all the parts from the other car, tyres, turbos, suspension, intercooler etc, in effect fully spec'ing up the second car.
  7. Exit the race, and go back to the garage. Check out the list of fitted parts for both cars. The parts are now installed for both of them!

NOTE: This won't work for the Weight Reduction or Racing Mod options and a few other things (like port polishing), as these are not available from the Change Parts menu - they're not really "parts" as such anyway. Also, it doesn't seem to work with cars that have been won.

Of course the best thing you can do with this is sell the extra cars. As it cost you nothing to increase its specs, you'll make a profit when you sell it!

Hi-Fi Mode, Bonus Cars and Bonus Tracks
To get all the bonus items in Arcade mode, which include the four other tracks (Autumn Ring, Deep Forest, SSR5, and Grand Valley Speedway), all the other cars (Toyota, Subaru, Dodge, and TVR), the ending movie, and Hi-res GT Mode, you have to beat every single track with each type of car (A, B, and C) under all three modes of difficulty (Easy, Normal, Difficult.)
Hidden Video of the GT Staff
In Arcade Mode, first get the hidden tracks, then, on every track, take 1st place with any car in A,B, and C class mode on Normal setting or higher. Then go to Bonus Items, you'll see "Staff Video" on the menu.
Really Easy Money
To get alot of money very easily, buy the Viper GTS. Don't make any adjustments to it. Then go to the commercial cars championship under the Special Events menu. Use the Viper. You'll easily blow away all the other competition. And just for winning one race you get $50,000 and for winning the championship you get $100,000. If you place first in every race, get the pole-positions, and win the championship you'll recieve $400,000 in total. That's alot of money!!!
Replay Mode Tip
Are you having trouble beating the license tests? Well, you won't anymore. Go to the replay theater in the main screen, and check out the demonstration movies. They will show you how to beat all the license tests!
Win the Concept Car
To get the Concept car, enter the American vs. British race and place first in the championship. The second way to get the Concept Car is by earning the gold prize on each of the 7 B-Lisence preliminary tests and on the final test.
