How to buy an Auto Shop business in GTA Online's Los Santos Tuners update

Jump To

On the surface, the Los Santos Tuners update looks like it's added a few flashy cars and a Street Race Series to GTA Online. You'll be pleased to know, there's a lot more to this update than meets the eye. Auto Shops are one of the new things you can look into following the update and they too hold a few secrets for you to uncover. Here's what we know.

LATEST - Contract Crimes Available At Auto Shops

Rockstar Games has now released their GTA Online Update 1.54 Patch Notes, which largely refers to the Los Santos Tuners expansion, and there are a few things worth noting in regards to the Auto Shop properties now appearing on Maze Bank Foreclosures.

The Los Santos Tuners update slyly added a few more heist-like missions to GTA Online called Contracts. Here's what Rockstar Games had to say about them...

  • Contracts: Contracts are new robbery-style jobs that consist of two planning missions in Free Mode, followed by a final job to close the contract. Six Contracts are available at launch, with two more being added in future:
    • The Superdollar Deal
    • The Bank Contract
    • The ECU Job
    • The Prison Contract
    • The Agency Deal
    • The Data Contract

You can only access these through the Auto Shop and completing one of these unlocks the Exotic Exports mission-type too. You might not like racing, but the Los Santos Tuners update is packed full of content.

How To Buy An Auto Shop In Los Santos

There are a few steps you need to take if you want to purchase an Auto Shop in the Los Santos Tuners update. As you can imagine, they will appear on Maze Bank Foreclosures alongside other GTA Online businesses. However, they don't pop up straight away.

First things first, you need to find the LS Car Meet and head inside for a rendezvous with BB and Pau. This is located in Cypress Flats at the following map location:

RIGHT WHERE IT SHOULD BE - The LS Car Meet is-indeed in Cypress Flats on the East side of the city

Once you've done this, they instruct you to buy an Auto Shop. All you need to do is head to Maze Bank Foreclosures online. The cheapest Auto Shop will set you back around GTA$ 1,600,000 and you'll need to purchase your GTA$ 50,000 LS Car Meet Membership through this. You can check out an example of what this screen will look like below:

There's no word on whether GTA Online is going to add more locations in a future update but it isn't outside the realms of possibility.
