Benny’s the new boy on the block, but first you need to do a little work for Lamar Davies.
Benny’s Original Motor Works is open in Los Santos for all your custom lowrider needs.
You can check out the vehicles on your iFruit phone as soon as you’ve downloaded the latest update. You can go ahead and order one too, but you’ll need to wait for a call from Lamar Davies before you can do anything with it. It shouldn’t take long…
All contact missions and prompts from Lamar Davies will appear on your map with yellow icons from now on. After Lamar’s call, go meet him at Benny’s and he’ll send you on the mission Community Outreach.
Whether you complete this or fail, you get to ride a pretty sweet motor and toy with the hydraulics. After you’ve kicked off a war between the Ballas and the Vagos you’re now able to buy a lowrider and get it customsied.
Firstly, the base car model is pretty cheap, as you would expect for something that’s about to get a lot of work. Here’s a simple price list:
- Vapid Chino: $225,000
- Albany Primo: $9,000
- Declasse Moonbeam: $32,500
- Willard Faction: $36,000
- Albany Buccaneer: $29,000
- Declasse Voodoo: $5,500
Now you can take your vehicle around to Benny and get busy with those customisation options.
There’s plenty to choose from but you need to upgrade to the Custom Variant before you do any of the neat stuff. This is where it gets pricey. It cost me $420,000 to apply the Custom Variant to the Declasse Voodoo, for example.
Check out the before and after pics for it to see the difference:
You can now go crazy with your money and customise the interior, trunk, hydraulics, decals and a shit-load more. Make sure you fiddle around and weigh up your options because there’s a lot of choice and it’s a pricey business.
You now have an expensive new ride. Although Benny mentions that he only works on six models at the moment, he does say that might change in the future, so expect more Lowrider updates if this one goes down well.
Now you’ve got your lowrider customised and kitted out, you’ll want to use the new menu options to set Remote Functions to turn radio, engine and headlights on or off when you’re not inside it. Press you little key fob and you can change them without being in the car.
That’s it. Show off your new ride by bouncing it up and down the streets.
