    After several inputs from gamers it seems this achievement is buggy for some after completing everything and it still not unlocking. I doubt ubisoft will fix it since it hasn't been yet.

    Here's the steps I took to complete all the missions at Platinum level.

    1) Level each spec of car to atleast a 1250 or higher.
    2) I used the 370z as my street car, the Lambo Aventer as my perf car, the ruf (Miami dealer one) for my dirt car, the charger as my raid car, and the charger also as my circuit car.
    3) To get platinums you have to finish each mission as clean and fast as possible.

    RACES- you have to be out in front as soon as possible to get the bonus at the end of scoring to make platinum. (this is easy if you fill the perk for full nitrous in missions)

    FOLLOWING- you have to be as close as possible the whole race

    TAKEDOWNS- you have to take down the target in less than a minute of time for platinum. High level cars and using nitrous as you go for the hits add more damage. Side hits take more than rearending them

    COLLECTING CRATES- you have to make fast clean runs mot missing a single crate till you reach 80. Should have close to 50 seconds left in time to get a platinum.

    Most were easy to do per region but had 2 per state that were a little annoying. Look for short cuts in some races your having a hard time not getting there fast enough. The main race line (if you use it) doesn't show the fastest route.

    This guide was a requested guide. If there is an achievement guide you'd like to see, send me a message on Xbox Live. Take a look at my achievements list to see what I have unlocked.

    NOTE: There have been several reports of this achievement not unlocking, I'll go over that shortly.

    To start off, here are the following cars I have used for each mission type.

    Perf - Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 tuned to 1373.

    Street - Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) tuned to 1341.

    Dirt - Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) tuned to 1271.

    Raid - Nissan Skyline GT-R (R34) tuned to 1094.

    Circuit - Lamborghini Huracan LP 610-4 tuned to 849. (These races were easy and not many, so I didn't put much effort into this spec)

    The easiest way to level up your cars is to do the skill mission "Scramble Skill 12" located at the Chicago Airport. Come at the start point from the North-West. (This seems to be the easiest at getting Platinum medals)

    Now that you have your cars to spec, go into the missions and go about them each as fast as you can. For raids, if going after them in a certain order doesn't work, go after them another way. Sometimes, the best route isn't the one you might think first. Remember, you can afford to miss a stack here and there if it means you keep your speed.

    Play each mission several times and look for short-cuts or places to go off-road if it'd be faster. If you screw up, start again.

    Also, it helped me to go for platinums starting from the missions I got a gold on, then silver, then bronze. (Bronze were first missions or harder ones, so I saved them for last)

    Remember! If you pull up your map and click the left thumb-stick (Open Driver ID) you can scroll to statistics and go under "Leaderboards" to see how many platinum medals you have unlocked. Click on a region then hit missions to see your medal for each mission.

    If this helped at all, please let me know!

    EDIT: I forgot about the glitch. If the achievement does not pop up when you have finished everything, go through the missions again or go through Skills and hopefully it will unlock. If that doesn't work, then I am sorry. I have no solution other than trying skills or doing the missions again.
