Do they just unlock at the end of a race? – Wipqozn Dec 25 '11 at 15:00
Also, does this just apply to grand prix races, or do multiplayer races count too? – Wipqozn Dec 26 '11 at 16:25
@Wipqozn: After you return to a menu screen, it will alert you whether you've unlocked anything new or not. And yes, coins will be recorded even in multiplayer matches. – Alexis King Jan 16 '12 at 0:06
It will alert you when something is unlocked, and next time you pick car parts a new option will be waiting to be revealed. I was wondering if online races work. My friend said no, but I think I unlocked something after playing online. It doesn't always seem to work though. Or maybe it doesn't work as well. I've also been wondering if you only keep the coins you are holding at race end? I'm assuming yes, so if you get bashed before the finish line and lose half your coins, it sucks. – Kit Mar 5 '12 at 4:36
