If you were around in the heyday of Dr. Dre, you may have seen a pimped out cars perform a certain bouncing display. And now I’ll stop rhyming. Sorry. Lowriders are symbolic of that era of the Los Angeles rap scene, and GTA Online’s fictional representation of those same sun-soaked streets will soon be full of them.

GTA Online: Lowriders isn’t just bringing bouncy hydraulic-powered dancing cars, though.Benny’s Original Motor Works is a new customs shop in downtown Strawberry, and it’s where you need to head for a whole host of new vehicular customisation options.
It’s just a case of visiting Benny’s website via the shortcut on your in-game phone and driving across to him.
“Deck out your engine block with covers and air filters, coat your interiors with velour, leather and patterns, choose custom colors and designs for your dials, or add a new steering wheel and custom shift levers, ” says the announcement. “Give your ride lift with hydraulics – the more powerful the pumps, the higher you can bounce. And boost your stereo’s performance with new speakers and subs in the back.”
And since this update is all about showing off your terrible taste, there are a bunch of new player interaction options for opening the doors, hood and trunk. Now you can gather with your friends in a local car park and pretend to be those people you hate who do the same every Saturday night at your local ASDA. Yesssss.
It’s not all about synchronised bouncing with your crew down the road, however, as Lamar will also have a bunch of new missions for you and your friends to take on. To fit all those extra cars in, you’re now also able to purchase a fourth property, if you’ve got the funds. And if you do stink of money, there’s also new clothing, hair and accessory options to splash the cash on.
GTA Online: Lowriders arrives on PC as an automatic update on Tuesday, October 20.
