lol. 4m. I thought I was poor at 10m lifetime at rank 107.
You say "legit" I say "poorly played". It's like you weren't even trying to make money.
I farmed Mixed up with Coke a bunch of times. for a few days, it's all martin was giving my friends and I. Then we finally got Rooftop Rumble, which turned out to be a huge disappointment, as it had already been patched (can't blow up doc's now, or it fails you). now it's way slower and less efficient than Mixed.
Then came the ultra cash nerf, which pretty much put a stop to my grinding days. sure I did a good bit of race exchanging with my crew to unlock car mods/colors, but why have a crew/friends if you're not going to get the most out of it?
So basically, what I'm saying is, I have roughly one less day played than you, and have made a bit more than double the money you've made. My guess is you don't play with other people? and if you do, then you never actually farmed any missions (which .. if not, I'd like to hear why?).
Because for a few days, I was playing roughly 12 hours a day as well, but I would like to think I put that time to good use (in game).\
This whole anal-retentiveness people have about doing stuff "legit" is really silly when you look at what some consider "illegitimate". Racing, and grinding are two very legitimate ways of ranking up/earning money. The only way grinding isn't, is if you are using the replay glitch, which I haven't used more than 10 or so times, and that was only on no hay bronca, when I first started playing and didn't know it was a no-no.
Anyway... whatever. why do I bother trying to explain myself. lol. Too bad I already typed all this out... almost not even worth it to post it.
