Description

Following No. 1 and Smackdown, Niko Bellic will receive a text message from Brucie's friend Stevie. He needs some cars (30 total) that Niko will need to find across Liberty City and deliver to S&M Auto Sales. It is similar to Brucie's Exotic Exports (email cars), except here the cars are parked and are not indicated on the map, and are never guarded by the owner. In addition, Stevie pays much more for these cars when they're in good condition than Brucie does. Just like stealing any car, if police witness a car theft, the player receives a one star wanted level. Occasionally the cars have alarms.

If the player finds the right vehicle, the game shows a message saying: "You've found the vehicle Stevie is looking for." The player then needs to drive the car to Stevie's garage in Bohan. The condition of the vehicle determines how much money Niko receives. Taking the car to a Pay 'n' Spray helps increase its value if the car is damaged. However, as there are no Pay 'n' Sprays in Bohan, it is difficult to reach the garage without damage. Another way of repairing the vehicle without resorting to cheats is by parking the requested car in the "RESIDENTS PARKING" space next to the South Bohan Safehouse. Then, just drive or run a block or two and return, the car will be fixed.

If a player wishes to complete these thefts quickly, it is recommended either that they save the game repeatedly at the nearby safehouse in Bohan, or repeatedly use a Pay 'n' Spray until they receive a text. These methods advance the time, which means Stevie will send a text in a matter of minutes after delivering a vehicle, instead of hours. The player can view the amount of vehicles stolen under "Cars Sold to Stevie" in the Score section of the Stats in the pause menu.

The player can have the vehicles destroyed or keep the vehicles at the parking spaces. The vehicle will be respawned at the original location as long as the vehicle is not delivered. The vehicles Stevie wants will only appear between the first contact with him to the last. They will not appear outside that time. The only incentive for storing the vehicles is their unique body colors, which are otherwise unavailable in other parts of the game; the vehicles are also otherwise similar in the range of accessories it may include; as is the case with the Rancher, Dukes and the DF8-90. It is interesting to note that the cars will not lose their unique colors even after resprays at Pay 'n' Spray, but motorbike do lose their colors under the same situation.

Once all 30 cars are delivered, the player can make some extra cash by bringing in any vehicle they want. The player also earns the achievement You Got The Message for delivering all 30 vehicles.
