New additions

This week there are loads of new additions for people to dive into. The first is a new car, the Panthere, an exotic sports car that sells for $2,170,000. It's a super fast addition for any player's garage, and well worth a buy if you've got the cash laying around.

If you need a new garage for the car, you can also buy the Eclipse Boulvard 50-car garage. This will cost $2,740,000, so it is incredibly pricey but well worth it if you're a passionate car collector.

There's also a new selection of daily events you can do. Street Dealers can be found randomly around the map, able to buy up a specific illegal good from you up to three times a day. There's also a daily stash house, which you can enter to pick up those naughty goods. Finally, G's Caches are marked on the map and provide extra goodies for you to colelct.

Finally, you may randomly come across a convenience store robbery out in the city. Whether or not you decide to step in or leave the criminals be, it's one more change to make Los Santos feel a bit more lively.
