Everything you should know about Los Santos Tuners
Release: When will Los Santos Tuners appear?
Date: Los Santos Tuners will be available in GTA Online starting July 20th.
Time: A specific time is currently not known, but experience has shown that the new update should be played in GTA Online around 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Europe time.
New content extends over several weeks: Fans should note, however, that not all of the content from Los Santos Tuners will be available in GTA Online as of July 20, 2021. As was the case with the Cayo Perico Heist, for example, a new car is released every week to keep players involved in the long term.
Cost: how much does Los Santos Tuners cost?
No paid DLC: Like all previous expansions for GTA Online, Los Santos Tuners is free for all owners of GTA 5.
However, you have to be able to afford the new content, such as cars, tuning improvements and the new membership in LS Car Meet with your in-game savings. However, GTA Online offers you enough opportunities to earn money to avoid having to pay for Shark cards and thus your credit card.
LS Car Meet: This is what the new exclusive membership offers
Meeting up with others in parking lots in GTA Online and showing off their specially tuned cars has always been a popular activity for the community. At least until some rag comes over on his Oppressor Mk2 and blows up the party – in the truest sense of the word.
The new club “LS Car Meet” provides a remedy: With the new update, players can meet at their car meetings protected from trolls and grievers and thus do not run the risk of being disturbed by them. Armed vehicles and even the police (of course) have to stay outside.
New social hub: At the LS Car Meet, players can present their cars, hold races, and try out changing vehicles on a test track. Up to 30 players can take part in the competition, in which direct vehicle contact is deactivated.
Increase reputation for new rewards: Your reputation at the Car Meets is like a new currency. This unlocks new rewards in the form of new tuning options such as tires and paintwork. You also get access to new racing modes and can even host private car meetings. You increase your reputation by participating in and winning races, with daily login bonuses, driving on the test track or just being there.
Exclusive membership for a few GTA dollars: For just 50,000 GTA dollars, players can become members of the LS Car Meet. Those who shop get access to special content, such as a merchandise shop, a tattoo shop and a tuning workshop. There are also alternating challenges in which special prize vehicles can be won. High-ranking members can even decorate the Car Meet in their own colors.

New game improvements: Los Santos Tuners should also deliver new quality-of-life improvements, but Rockstar has not yet given any further details.
Faster cars to the NextGen release: In addition, Rockstar Games has already announced new gameplay features for the launch of GTA 5 on Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X | S. Special tuning options are intended to make vehicles even faster, among other things. Rockstar Games is currently saying that these features should only be available for PS5 and Xbox Series players, but we think it is very likely that PC gamers will also be able to use them.
