2. The Dealership
2.1. Buying a vehicle
|The information is presented in text on-screen instead of the game chat.
Each dealership has a configured point. There are four in total; two for land vehicles, one for air vehicles and one for marine vehicles.
Grotti & Commerce Dealership:
+ Sports Vehicles
+ Public Service
+ Public Service Law
+ Station Wagons
Certain vehicles require certain permissions (such as emergency vehicles and donator exclusive vehicles such as the BMX and ZR-350) and usually serve as private vehicles to their respective faction leaders.
Los Santos International Airport Dealership - Sells you aircraft (requires a unique flying licence available near the airport spawn).
Once you've chosen the right dealership and the right category, you will have a list of vehicles that fit the current category.
Each category displays the vehicle pictures (stock models) and prices.
When you click on the vehicle model you want, the process will continue to the physical preview. The physical preview allows you to see the vehicle and it will create a dialog for you to understand how the vehicle works, which fuel it runs on and its capacity and its overall price.
The price is the total cost of the vehicle, modifications and whether you include a lock, alarm, immobilizer, colors and XMR.
For example we choose vehicle X which costs $100,000 and we want to add: Alarm level 4, Immobiliser level 4, custom color and XMR.
When you're ready to buy the vehicle, you will be shown the following:
If you hit ESC to purchase your vehicle, you will be given the option to confirm or deny the purchase at its final stage. Hitting ESC again cancels the purchase. Proceeding through the dialog will eventually finish the process and turn the vehicle over to you.

And you're able to choose the upgrade you would like.

When the operation finishes, it will notify you:
An alarm is a common feature in vehicles in LS:RP due to its usefulness in protecting your vehicle. Each upgrade adds new features (while retaining the previous level's features).
When you write the end with the yes, it will start to upgrade your alarm:
When the operation ends, it will notify you with the alarm upgrade:
An immobilizer effects the amount of time it takes to attempt to hot wire a vehicle.
When you write the command with the yes at the end, it will start to upgrade your immobilizer:
When the operation finishes, it will notify you with the immobilizer upgrade
Vehicle health varies from model to model (bikes tend to have less for example).
Armor is available up to a maximum of an additional 250.0 hit points on a vehicle. Also visible damage will not show until the amount of armor added is depleted. Engine life deterioration still only affects the vehicle's base health.
When you add "yes" to the end:
Once this has finished, you will be notified:

⊡ Protection against cosmetic damage. Vehicle will re-spawn good as new.
⊡ Vehicle modification coverage. We got your fancy layout and XM tunes covered!
If your vehicle is destroyed the insurance is charged and must be paid at a dealership in a prompt time frame.
Upon payment, you'll receive a notification that you've paid your insurance price.
2.3 Battery & Engine
|Battery and Engine serve as a life span of a vehicle. Both decrease at 0.01 for every couple of minutes the engine is running.. The total estimated life span of an engine is 69 days (real time). The battery decreases upon explosion or other types of serious damage.
• Vehicle health is more then 650
Battery Life - (vehicle_health_loss/150.0) = deduction from battery life.
Battery Life - (vehicle_health_loss/125.0) = deduction from battery life.
Engine Life - (vehicle_health_loss/75.0) = deduction from engine life.
Battery Life - (vehicle_health_loss/100.0) = deduction from battery life.
Battery Life - (-10) deducted.
Under 650 you are likely to encounter problems with the engine.
If replaced, both engine and battery will replenish to 100.0.
