NFS:W, after you painstakingly reach level 5, offers you a whooping choice of three performance upgrade packs: Lustra, React and Glint.

As much as I'd rather get a new ride -- something that was far easier in NFS:MW -- I'll have to consider getting a package instead (mainly for pursuit purposes).

Which one exactly? Is there any gameplay difference at all? They all cost the same and all upgrade car stats by the same -- this fake choice kind of puzzles me.

  • Obviously I can't get a new car because I didn't pay the $20 to unlock levels 11-50...

    This really annoys me too; as far as I can tell the differences are just cosmetic, but I have no way to be sure. Fortunately, they're bringing "slot-based performance customization" in a future update: needforspeed.com/post/…

ZoogieZork's comment and the offical blog post seem to imply that no, there is no gameplay difference indeed. Not yet, anyway.
