    This should be rather easy to get. First, you need the Honda Legends Car Pack which is a FREE add-on. This gets you three cars: the 1984 Honda Civic CRX Mugen, the 1994 Honda Prelude Si, and most importantly the 2014 Honda Civic Si.

    You'll still need to buy (or rent) the car with your credits, the add-on just adds it for purchase in your game. When you buy it you just need to drive it for 100 and 300 miles before March 31, 2014 to unlock the two related challenges. As far as I know these miles can be driven in ANY mode, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

    The 2014 Honda Civic SI can be upgraded to D, C, B, and A class through quick upgrade. You'll need to do some special tuning, but you can get your Civic to S and even higher. This opens up a lot of events in the Class Competition leagues in Single Player. I also found the 2014 Honda Civic SI available for the Modern Hot Hatch in the Sport Compact League.

    In Multiplayer, you can tune your car to A- or S-class and even drive in the Tag events for the other concurrent challenge:

    Forza Motorsport 5TaggedThe Tagged challenge in Forza Motorsport 5Race in 50 Multiplayer Hopper Tag events.

    You can use the quick upgrade option to get to A-class for the Pass/Keep the It tag events, but not S-class for the Virus tag events. Here's a quick guide to tuning your Civic to S-class. You can do one of 3 things:

    a. Manually tune it - First quick upgrade to A-class then go to conversion and put in an alternate drivetrain to bump yourself up to S-class.
    b. Search for an S-class user-created tune. There's plenty good ones out there.
    c. Help a brother out and use my tune! Search 'xt5' in the description field for my tunes. I think I've got tunes up for all classes. I've also got a paint job under the same description if you feel so inclined.

    If you were wondering about the special prize associated with the challenges, 10 people will win a $50 Xbox Gift card for completing the 100 mile challenge, and for completing the 300 mile challenge you are entered to win the grand prize of a trip for two to a performance driving school in Ohio and a Honda Mad Catz Xbox One Racing Wheel, of which there will be four winners.

    Just for the sake of completeness, I'll be posting this solution on the other related challenge, so if you've read this you could skip reading the other one.

    XtowersJust finished up all the current challenges for Forza 5. What I ended up doing is switching from Tag Virus events to Tag Pass the It events. They're 5 minutes each and I was racking up about 5-10 miles each time while accumulating my 50 tag events for the other challenge. I finished up the tag challenge and just started driving around in the Modern Hot Hatch events of the Sport Compact league, grabbing some golds there before popping my final challenge.

    OrchiiGuys I have problem :/ I drove 300 miles, but my tracker stuck on 72 %. Any ideas ?

    A Lazy SusanMy progress was stuck at 70% for over 1000 miles. However, I found a way to progress and get this achievement. What I did was make a private multiplayer lobby set to drag race 8-player 1-mile with as many drivatars as possible. Not only did this make my progress continue, it also got me all of the achievements for leading x amount of miles. I ran 6 10-heat races, and after about an hour I had this challenge and 5 achievements. You may have read elsewhere that there is a bug in drag racing that skews the mileage. This may not be a solution for everyone, but it did work for me.

    If you're like me, and really don't want to race the 2014 Honda Civic Si, but want to get entered in the sweepstakes and get the challenge, this is YOUR solution.

    1. Purchase your 2014 Honda Civic Si (I didn't rent, so I don't know if this will work for a rental)
    2. Upgrade your car to a 400 D class (not necessary, but better handling will help you here)
    3. Go to Rivals and select the D class, picking the Indy Oval.
    4. Set your Assists to : No Line, Assisted Braking ON, Assisted Steering ON, TCS/STM ON, Shifting AUTOMATIC, Damage COSMETIC.
    5. Rubber band your right trigger.
    6. Plug in your controller to your Xbox (it doesn't have to be the standard MS cable, any of those mini USB cables that fit in the top of your controller will keep the battery charged and will keep your controller from idling.)
    7. Start the race.
    8. After 120 laps you will have gone 300 miles (1 lap Indy = 2.5 miles) I had an average lap time of 1.5 minutes, so about 3 hours.
    9. After the 120 laps, you can pause it, and select exit. It will now save your game, and your challenges will unlock after.

    Doing it this way makes it less of an actual grind because you can play your 360 or go do errands like I did. The assisted braking and steering keep your car on the road, and since you're not going too fast, you're not going to drive up the walls.

    I didn't receive any credits or XP from the race, so if you were looking for that, you're out of luck I guess.

    If you don't want to spend your cash to buy the car then use this method-Go in to Freeplay and choose Rent Car and press "A" on the first choice. This will drop you back to the Freeplay setup screen. Choose Select Car again, and this time go to Buy Car. Scroll to the 2014 Honda Civic Si, press "A" to buy the car but at the Recommended Designs screen, press "B" three times. This will drop you back to the Freeplay setup screen again, but you will have the 2014 Honda Civic Si as your rental. This is a bug in the game and may be patched at some point. If it is patched, you will need to purchase the car to obtain this achievement. This works for the other Zero Point achievements in the game at the moment. There is/was also a similar bug that could be exploited by doing the quarter mile drag race-I think this may have been fixed though. This enabled you to get the distance achievements in no time at all as the game had some problem working the distance out for drag races.
