    Kinect is not required for this achievement and navigating Autovista using a controller is simpler.

    I will explain how to get this achievement using the Ferrari 458 Italia.
    From the main menu select Autovista and select the Ferrari 458 Italia.
    Note: You do not need to watch/listen to the information about the car, once started you can press B to go back, though its nice to hear about the cars.

    Once the commentator has finished telling you about the car for the first time and you gain control of the car head left to face the front of the car and interact with the following areas of the car:
    ~Open the hood/bonnet
    ~Close the hood/bonnet
    ~Black fin lower right of your screen
    ~Black fin lower left of your screen (Top gear icon - Jeremy's commentary)
    ~Headlight left side of your screen.

    Now head left again so you are facing the cars right hand side and interact with the following areas of the car:
    ~Ferrari logo on the wing
    ~Open the door
    ~Walk forward and get in to the car
    ~Get out of the car
    ~Close the door

    Now head left again so you are now at the back of the car and interact with the following areas of the car:
    ~Lower right of screen (Near the underbody)
    ~Open the engine cover
    ~Walk forward to take a close look (interact with the magnifying glass)
    ~The car's engine (there is only one thing to interact with in here)
    ~Now go back
    ~Close the engine cover

    Now head left again so you are now viewing the left of the car and interact with the following areas of the car:
    ~Rear wing (Paint change)
    ~Open door
    ~Walk forward and get in to the car
    ~Start the engine (First interaction available, is a key icon)
    ~Move right stick to the right to view the centre console and interact
    ~To the right of the steering wheel above a vent
    ~Get out of the car
    ~Close the door
    ~Front wheel

    Achievement unlocked.
    Here's a video just to demonstrate. (Shows all details of car too for those who are interested)

    You do not need Kinect to get this achievement.

    Go to Autovista mode from the Main Menu, choose a car and play the Jeremy Clarkson commentary, listen and watch all the highlights, enter the car and sit in both seats, open and close all doors and look / zoom in the boot and under the bonnet.

    ADaughenI tried this a few times (GT, 458, M5) before finally getting it on the Lexus LFA. A few items aren't selectable if the doors are open or the spoiler is up. Make sure you manipulate everything.

    Passenger headlight - Top Gear overview
    Driver's wheel - Wheel and brakes
    Driver's door - Open/Close
    Driver's interior - paddle shift, turn on engine, display, interior seating
    Driver's rear quarter - color change
    Exhaust - exhaust
    Driver's side Spoiler - up/down
    Passenger side spoiler (has to be down) - aerodynamics
    Rear hatch - open/close
    Passenger rear quarter - cooling
    Passenger door - open/close
    Passenger interior - same interior seating as driver's
    Hood - open/close, engine view
    Engine view - data on engine

    peacemak3rI just got it with the 458 Italia, I believe when you open the trunk, you have to look into it also. That's where it popped up for me.

    JASimmonsVDo not forget to manipulate every point, even the paint feature.
