GTA Online now lets you buy modded cars from Car Meets

You don't have to window shop at the Los Santos Car Meets anymore - as part of the GTA 5 upgrade, you can buy modded cars in GTA Online now

GTA Online’s Car Meets offer petrolheads a chance to show off their new set of wheels in style. Now, thanks to the new upgrade for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5, players can do more than just window shop – they can buy themselves a version of the car they see in front of them, complete with mods.

This addition, which has been spotted by ‘sjsjshdhxh‘ on Reddit, comes as part of the Expanded and Enhanced update for current-gen users. While the update includes new and improved tuning options for the fastest GTA Online cars and the fastest GTA online bikes, this is the first time players will be able to buy cars directly from the Los Santos Car Meet.

While that might not seem like a big deal, it allows new players, particularly those trying GTA Online out for the first time in years to get a massive leg up in the game.

Cars can be bought with the complete set of mods on show – including street rep locked wheels and liveries, modded cars with F1 wheels, and much, much more. Given races are usually won by grafters, this should allow newcomers to become contenders overnight.

But that’s not all. sjsjshdhxh reports that the owner of the vehicle will get a coupon for a free upgrade at Hao’s workshop if someone buys a copy of their car.

While this is a great addition to the game, many players are worried about exploits. While we haven’t spotted any just yet, we don’t think it’ll be long before this is turned into some sort of money making mission.

For now though, players will just have to stick to our guide to making money in GTA 5 Online. It might not be an honest living, but it’s better than nothing.
