I've escaped from a 6 star a few times... its hard though espically if you got a helicopter on you, they can total your car pretty fast with bullets.
I consider pay n sprays cheating because they make it way to east to get away from 5 and 6 stars, and i refuse to use them.
IMHO the police system is 50x better than previous GTAs.

I mean you can be under a bridge and no police cars in sight and the flashing meter wont go down....grrr
The constant terrorism references on the GTA radio stations gets old fast, we all know about rockstar creator Dan Housers pessimistic and cynical humour but ease up on it.
It goes down after awhile, or atleast for me.
I personally find stealthing on foot much easier than driving to escape from 5-6 stars. I tend to stick to alleys and crouch when I see cops headed my way.. and they run/drive right by me. Its rather nice to have that because you couldnt do that in previous GTAs.
If you sit in a alleyway, or under a bridge for a long period of time your stars should slowly start removing one by one.. But I think if theres a helicopter and he saw you enter a general area where he sees the only exits your stars won't go down.
Basically, I've found the only way to escape when theres a helicopter is to either take it down or run through alleyways on foot and hope it loses you.
The good thing is... after you take out a helicopter it is quite some time before another one comes... Infact i've been on 6 stars and never seen a single helicopter before.
