I didn't know where Shift content would go, so here it is.
If you watch the drivers in the race, a few familiar ones pop up. Clarence Callahan, aka Razor, Karol Monroe, aka the Drag King, etc. Though this alone could be explained as Slightly Mad paying homage to their predecessor, the designs of some of the rival drivers are painfully familiar. Ron Kay's design resembles Razor's Mustang, and it has the name written in the same font and place as Jewels. Alexi Cumia drives a Murcielago with battle machine designs. Not only that, but Tomas Rudall uses identical vinyls on his BMW M3 E46, (the street version of the MW car.)
If you look at the loading screen for Chet Ismet (accessible only for his driver duel), his car will be a Mazda RX-8, unlike the Honda S2000 he usually drives.
If you look off to the sides of the tracks, you will see the NFS is full of itself. Not only that, but you will notice that sometimes, the scenery looks more akin to Underground, Most Wanted, Carbon, or Undercover rather than an accurate depiction of world renowned race courses.
The Riviera (Exotic Racing DLC) is Monaco. There, I said it.
Replays are glitchy (that's more a statement than anything.)
The area around several tracks doesn't even remotely resemble the terrain in the real areas. Autopolis looks like its in California, with Infineon (which should've been in the game). Autopolis GP has entirely different background scenery than Lakeside. I'm not exactly sure about Road America, but I think Wisconsin looks at bit different than that. Ambush Canyon is where again (Arizona, Utah?). Rustle Creek is apparently in Europe, despite its insignia being colored as the USA flag. London River and Royal Mile are interesting concepts, but imagine the traffic congestion by blocking off that area of London. Well, at least it isn't Tokyo; wait, they blocked off a major road there too. Let's block off Paris, Washington, D.C., Moscow, and Rome while we're at it. No, fine. Back to Tokyo, where in the city is this supposed to be, because I know enough about Tokyo to safely say the road network doesn't just bring one down to a shipping dock from an elevated highway.
EDIT 1: not ten seconds after I looked up from the computer screen, I noticed Isabel Diaz as in the race as well.
EDIT 2: Maybe I just should post with a race paused. The Acura NSX (Exotic DLC) makes some odd noises sometimes. I don't know the triggers, but one sound resembles that associated with a "flying saucer" whilst another was that a locomotive.
I'm sure to find something more, but for now, Arrivederci.
