*** It would appear that this is buggy as some cars are not registering the type of takedown gained - just a basic takedown for eveything. Will update when I have further info. ***

After feedback from 4 people it appears that you have to have the license plate on a car from the pack (see below) for the 'chieve to pop.

And after further testing - thx to R0Y4LEwitCHEESE & Ahkmed 7 - it appears that you have to be driving the Shelby GT500 (or this seems to give the highest chance of the 'chieve popping anyway - W1SSK3Y has also confirmed this was the car used for the 'chieve), preferably in a friends lobby & do not change car during the attempt, as this may reset the counter.

To unlock the Movie Fan license plate you have to unlock all 10 (burn nitrous is unlocked online from the start) original (non DLC) mods for each of the 5 cars in the movie pack.

Then fit the plate & get 5 Slam takedowns.

The cars are:

Aston Martin DB5
Dodge Charger R/T
Pontiac Firebird T/A
Aston Martin DBS
Shelby GT500

You get the DB5 for free & unlock each in the list by completing 6 speedlist events in the previous one.

A slam takedown is where you hit another racer (from behind or the side) causing them to career into a fixed object (wall, barrier, tree etc.) with their collision with that object causing the takedown.
i.e. you 'slam' them into said object.

If you hit them too hard & cause the takedown yourself you will get a takedown, shunt takedown or t-bone takedown depending on where & at what angle you hit them.
