##Let’s talk a few things over:
For those who haven’t played GTA 5 (specifically the Online portion before) did you know you get a free vehicle of your choice?!
If you missed the gearhead thread, I recommend you have a look-see; there’s a link to a huge spreadsheet of almost every car available in the previous iterations of GTA 5 Online and it should help you decide what you might want.
After completing the prologue for the online portion of GTA 5 (a race with a character named Lamar) and completing the opening job (a drug heist), you’ll be prompted to make a visit to Los Santos Customs. Starting at that precise moment, it’s time to begin shopping around.
##Whatever vehicle you drive through the chop shop’s doors will be yours!
Well, almost any vehicle. You cannot select the following types of vehicles:
- Any vehicle that has an online rank requirement or is otherwise unstealable
##Don’t Freak Out!
There are still a ton of vehicle options available for your first freebie I recommend you cruise the streets for a bit and track down something that speaks to you. When you climb in it, check the upper-left of your screen; if the vehicle is ineligible it will inform you that it’s “Too Hot.” If that happens, just rummage about and find something different.
To my knowledge, there isn’t a single vehicle that’s completely unobtainable (maybe the previous collector edition ones for us newbies?). In any instance, if you’re starting a fresh Online character, choose that first car well…
