I'm trying the obvious approach in replay and I can't seem to be able to do it. I've sat in alleyways and parking garages out of sight for several minutes without losing them, they just circle around until one sees me. I often get stuck and I am not allowed to abandon the car. I tried going to Los Santos Customs but it was closed. The worst part is that Franklin won't shut the f*ck up (shouldn't the guy with special driving powers be driving the car anyway)

 

Is there any kind of trick to this?

Use the subway construction that appears on The Jewel Store Job, it always works, just be sure to not stay near the entrance.

I escaped them within seconds. Once driving out the underground car park I used Franklin's ability to maneuver the cops (I drove right next to them and they didn't see me lol) and hid in the car park next to the bank and I finally lost them after a few minutes. I probably was lucky.

 

You can leave the car. You can't go too far from it though. Try driving around the mountains (since police cars won't be able to follow you there) and if you find a bush, park next to it, get out of the car and hide in it. The Helicopters won't be able to see you (as far as I know) so you'll lose the cops without much problems.

 

Another good hiding spot is the underground Los Santos Sewer canal and metro in construction (The very same tunnel from the Jewel Store Heist). The cops will never follow you in there unless they're right behind you.

Can't believe the first time i did this mission, I used a TAXI!

And i'm still able to lose the cops, It was so close.

 

Second time, I used a Karin Sandking and lost the cops in, like, 30 seconds.

This.

Literally every car chase I'm in, I go here.

I just run for the mountains. I remember my first time doing it, I lost them within a few minutes by going to the mountain overlooking the Vinewood sign. Was pretty fitting.

I do that sometimes too, more often than not in the Palomino Highlands.

Yeah, this was totally underwhelming. I drove east over near the dam and oil pumps and waited on a hill. Losing them was way too easy. I was like, "That's it? That's the big score?" as I watched them give up the chase. Didn't seem like an authentic five star wanted level. Seemed like some scripted easy bullsh*t with the police dialed down for that mission. I shouldn't be able to lose a five star wanted level that easily.

I always go to the those big hills outside of town. Near the freeway. Or I go on the highway in Pillbox Hill. Those two are the easiest places to lose them.

Or you can go to the highway near the LS Customs near Lester's warehouse.

head into any sewer, train or tram tunnel and get far enough away from the entrance, and you can ditch any amount of cops. 

 

c'mon, this is the cheese method for evading police for many GTA's running! ain't no helicopter going to spot you in there, and as long as you don't hang out near the entrance, if any cops followed you in, take them out and move a little and no one will find you. 

 

there are so many ways to hide underground in V, i feel cheap if i resort to one of them to ditch 4+ stars.

The Sandking is manufactured by Vapid.

I agree, it's definitely a scripted version of the wanted level. I lost them in the golf course parking lot for god sakes. I've lost hundreds of 5 star wanted levels since then but none of them just sitting in a parking lot.

I am at my second play through and may choose the obvious approach. Could I lose the cops by going to a level crossing, driving on the train tracks until I find a tunnel and wait there?
