The parents' guide to what's in this game.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this is an expansion pack for The Sims 3, and players must already have a copy of The Sims 3 installed on their computer for the expansion pack to work. The expansion introduces new vehicles and vehicle-related clothing and accessories, plus the new Vehicle Enthusiast character trait.

What's it about?
THE SIMS 3: FAST LANE STUFF is the second "stuff pack" expansion for EA's The Sims 3 life simulation game that introduces the new Vehicle Enthusiast character trait, 12 new vehicles, and dozens of new furnishings and clothing that relate to four car-themed lifestyles: 50's style rebel hotrods, F1 racecars, James Bond-style classic vintage automobiles, and luxury convertibles. Prices range from the $950 "Sloppy Jalopy" to premium-priced rides like the $175,000 "Velocity" racecar.
Is it any good?
Fast Lane Stuff is a big improvement over High-End Loft Stuff in terms of what the expansion pack has to offer. Whereas High-End Loft Stuff only catered to rich, materialistic Sims, Fast Lane Stuff allows players to create four distinct types of car enthusiast. And it's not just about the car either; thanks to dozens of new accessories and clothing - from F-1 firesuits, riding helmets, and hotrod flame shirts to road signs and toolboxes - players can outfit their Sims to look the part and create garages and showrooms to make the vehicles front and center.
