How To Upgrade Garage 

There are many new elements in the latest installment of the Need For Speed franchise. Apart from the artistic visual style that is definitely an odd but great addition, there are many different customization options introduced in the franchise.

While it is true that Need For Speed is known for its customization options to the players, NFS Unbound has a plethora of elements for you to explore, including tweaking and tuning certain parts of your car according to your preference.

Therefore, you will be able to upgrade your car from time to time, adding in powerful parts and even changing the way it looks as well as the driving style of the car.

Players will have to upgrade their garage in the initial stages of the game if they want to unlock some of the best parts for their cars. Upgrading the garage is important if you want access to the most powerful tuning parts in NFS Unbound.

Furthermore, there is also an achievement or trophy that you will be able to earn as soon as you upgrade the garage in NFS Unbound fully. However, many players don’t know how to upgrade the garage in the game. If you are one of the players, then don’t worry, as you are in the right place below, you will find a detailed process for upgrading the garage and unlocking new parts for your car. 

Performance Menu 

Fortunately for the players, upgrading the garage in the game is not that hard. All you need to do is open the Performance Menu in the game. You can find it in the Rides Menu. After that, you must select the Upgrade Garage option, which is right underneath handling.

You will get access to three new upgrades when you open the Upgrade Garage section. Each of the upgrades will allow you to obtain several new parts in order to tune your car. However, the only con to it is that it requires a lot of money for the upgrade.

Even if the upgrade is not that cheap and the final one will cost you around $100,000, upgrading the garage is one of the crucial parts of the game. When you first start NFS Unbound, you will already have the Sport Upgrade for the garage unlocked by default. 

All Garage Upgrades 

Following are the garage upgrades in the game and how you can unlock them in the game. 

 Sport Upgrade: The Sport Upgrade will allow you to obtain Sport Parts in NFS Unbound. However, it is unlocked by default at the start of the game, and you won’t need to spend any money to get the sports upgrade for your garage. 

  • Pro Upgrade: The Pro Upgrade will allow you to obtain all Pro Parts in NFS Unbound, and you can upgrade your garage to pro by spending $7500. 
  • Super Upgrade: The Super Upgrade will allow you to obtain all Super Parts available in the game, and you will be able to unlock the upgrade by spending $50,000. 
  • Elite Upgrade: You will be able to upgrade your garage to the elite level by spending $100,000 in order to obtain all elite parts in NFS Unbound. 

You will be able to obtain the trophy as well after upgrading your garage to the highest level. 

  • The total upgrade will cost you around $157,500.
  • You don’t have to worry about upgrading your garage straight away in the game.
  • Keep in mind that you won’t be able to actually upgrade your cars until you pass the required level for Weekly Qualifier in NFS Unbound.

So even if you manage to get your hands on some of the most powerful parts in the game that are of a higher level, it won’t really make sense to use them in a low-powered car. Furthermore, you will only be able to upgrade your garage one tier each week.

Therefore, you will only be able to get the Elite Upgrade in week three. If you are looking to speed up the process and upgrade your garage faster, you can try running as many races as possible to get enough money to upgrade your garage to the elite level. 

Are Garage Upgrades Important In NFS Unbound? 

If you are looking to have some of the most powerful parts in NFS Unbound, then garage upgrades are important to obtain. If you plan on tuning your car, you would want to upgrade your garage to the elite at some point in your gameplay.

However, if you are one of the players who tend to change your cars a lot, the upgrade might not do you any good. If you are planning to invest in your starter car, then we definitely recommend upgrading your garage.

However, you will have to spend money on your garage and update it before you can unlock the parts for your car. We recommend that you try to upgrade to at least super or elite before using any parts in both upgrades.

Using Sport Upgrade parts is only a viable option for players who tend to change their cars pretty frequently. The Pro Upgrade especially won’t do you any good, as it is just there to help you level up a bit.

However, keep in mind that it is important to save money to get one of the best cars in NFS Unbound before upgrading it. And considering how hard it is to earn money in NFS Unbound, you will need to be very careful while spending it on upgrades.
