Probably the easiest thing to do for now is link to Jussi's super sticky of links....

Connections to important topics within all the forums
http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/3648854.page

and focus on the "GAME ADVICE" and "TECHNICAL HELP" sections Wink


Also look here if have trouble launching the game....
http://help.ea.com/article/nfsw-launcher-troubleshooting

and some additional links you may not find easily....
.NET Framework required to play NFSW

NFSW VOIP Chat FAQ
http://help.ea.com/article/nfsw-voip-chat-faq


EDIT:
@Blade3562
Add to your key controls list....
Left Ctrl - Shift DOWN 1 gear
Left Shft - Shift UP 1 gear

Only automatic transmission is supported in the game. These keys give you a semi-auto affect which can be useful for some cars on some corners. It is usually better to just let off the gas before the turn and get back on the gas at the turn apex. Some cars like lotus elise do not even require letting up on the gas in most cases.

EDIT2:
Here are links to some informative threads on Aeria's forums....
The Safehouse - FAQ´s
Rankings of all cars in NFSW with Pictures and Videos
NFS World Events and Info
Language and Crew chat channels

Here are links to some informative threads on EA's forums....
Cars prices, performances & unlock levels (this one take a while to load)
Performance Parts Info & List
Skills List & Info


EDIT3:

Leaderboards

EA provides a leaderboard of you versus your friends from their website when you log in.
Friends Leaderboard
But they do not currently provide a full player base leader board. Instead they allow access to driver information and race times via the SpeedAPI so fan sites can run their own leader boards.

The two most popular are:
NFS Stats (overall)
NFS Unlimited (overall and crew based ones)

Keep in mind that these sites only track the drivers that someone has added to their systems, not ALL drivers in the game. Also, there are ongoing and never ending issues with cheaters in the game which these sites try their best to filter out.

For nfs-s, you need to type your driver name in the upper left box and pick the search button. From there you may need to pick the update button for your driver. If you want, you can register with the site in order to create a forum signature with your driver stats and ranking.

For nfsunlimited, you need to sign up with the site and add your drivers.
