[UPDATE]: Auction House Servers are no longer online, making this achievement no longer attainable.

[original solution below]
The best way I found to do this quick and easily is when I was already playing online with a buddy. I told him that if he bought 5 cars from me that I would then buy them back from him. We would then both get the achievement at the same time. He agreed, and it worked as we thought it would.

(Auction any 5 cars you want)

-Set selling price to minimum (5,000).
-Set Buyout to Yes.
-Set Buyout price to minimum (10,000).
-Do this for 5 cars.

Your friend will need to know some minimum info in order to search for your cars that are for sale:
-Make (if you know it)
-Year (if applicable. it helps narrow it down)

also tell him to set price when searching to "affordable".

After he buys your cars, have him go to the "My Bids" tab of the auction house so he can actually select "receive car" to complete each transaction.

YOU will need to then go the "My Auctions" tab of the auction house to select "receive money" for each transaction.

You have now sold 5 cars and he has bought 5 cars. Switch to him selling those cars and you buying them following the above steps and you'll both have the achievement.

Screw auctions, "buyout" is where it's at! :)

CRAWFORD696I just got the achievement today. The servers are very spotty. They will be down for a few days then back up for a few more. Just have to keep checking back. All I did was look for cars with a buyout of 10k and after about 5 mins I had the achievement. Thanks!

CrazyC0330you should be able to. As in my example, I sold 5 cars and then bought those same 5 cars back and it counted as 10.

ZhuleCRO1985if it's still unobtainable, then how come I see those two under "Recent": PLTJ114 and ChirpyMule68, both unlocked this February ?!

CrazyC0330hrm, yeah that is strange. As others have said, the servers have been spotty, or just off. At the time I wrote the solution (november of 2009), this was a valid way to get the achievement. I have zero control as to whether the online servers are on/off/spotty.

OneShotMooflesFyi for anyone who wants to wipe up forza 2, this achievement is STILL unobtainable despite numerous unanswered threads on the forza motorsport forums. Note that I recently tried to list cars on the auction which fails, but the game is now eating the car. I tried to list the ford focus svt 10 times and it ate the car every time, but no cheevo. There's no point even trying. I even signed in with another account to see if they really did get listed, but no. I have also tried glitching this one by disconnecting the Xbox and other strategies, but nothing has worked. I don't believe gifting cars will work, either.

MegaManSurvivesSomeone got this on September 2017 online and someone got it offline on August 2017. How is this still considered discontinued if it's still being gotten?

BrassyLobsterI tried putting a car up for auction to see what would happen. The system wouldn't allow it and worst of all the car I was auctioning disappeared so don't do this.

SILVAF0XXHas anyone tried this recently? Is it definitely unobtainable? I haven’t started the game yet, but if there is a way to get this I’ll do it quickly double boxing if necessary.
