You've thought of that just now? Nice detective work, Sherlock.

 
I've only been on the forum for a few weeks, I've suspected but the description of his Glendale "Swag-mobile" has sold it.
Fine. "Lestrade". The thing is, he puts effort into making cars look bad. He RARELY does the generic chrome+dollar wheels thing. Obviously something's up by then.


Although dude's been active for the week, yo, but whatever. Not like everyone reads everything.

EDIT: oh, and uh, if you guys didn't get my earlier reference: it's Big Smoke's car. GTA SA? The OTHER car? The fat dude's car?

It's a good looking car but it's very weak and it doesn't perform well.

It doesnt perform well compared to other Sedans but it certainly is "fun" to drive, I wasnt expecting this car to be anywhere near as good as it is performance-wise so Im happy enough with this gangstermobile

 

@TeammateAssist Lol you made me look up this video my favourite Big Smoke scene!

Wraith is right they used the Greenwood in this mission

That would be the Greenwood:

Yes it is. It's got some classy looks. I'd go as far as to say that it has more swag than the Super Diamond.

Its got some classy looks yes.

 

Until you made it look like that, then it turned into something even Katie Price wouldn't drive.

Alright, fine, something much more memorable:

The car you drove to the train station with Big Smoke, on the hardest mission ever.

EDIT: "ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS DRIVE CJ" "if your fat hand could aim better WE WOULD BE DONE THE FIRST TIME BITCH"

i love mine.. the only car ive driven in the last couple of days. Had some nice drifts with it.. it drives more like a gta 4 car... less overpowered traction.. a bit harder to control on high speeds.

 

Anyway this is my version:

Customization is dechromed bumpers, ugly roof racks, and virtually unnoticeable side skirts. Race suspension does lower it a lot, but the body style is wrong to be a sick AMG-style sedan, it just looks...odd. If you like old, slow by GTA standards, Benz E classes, then go for it. After going through all the wheel choices and paint colors I sold it. The Warrener is much more enjoyable and has more varied customization options. Personally it's far more fun to drive as well.

To each his own.

Here's an idea, how about driving one?

 

Not being a nob here, OP, but these threads are getting ridiculous. How are we supposed to tell you what you like to drive?

isnt this the whole point of forums? to discuss? no we cant tell him what to buy but dont shoot the fella down like in all other threads,so whats the point of a forum then? to talk about f*cking heists over and over again ffs?

 

 

I didn't "shoot him down", as you put it. I suggested he form his own opinion, and I did so politely.

Great looking class merc. Not a whole heap of mods, but it doesn't really need them.

The suspension drops it on its ass, it's got a nice v8 rumble, it has 4 doors and it looks gangster as f**k.

I don't buy cars for speed, gta isn't all about racing. If you appreciate slower vehicles for what they are then I recommend the Glendale.


Its not a V8 rumble. Its called diesel.

This is a car you buy stritcly for looks not performance. I bought mine and made it look like a family sedan going to a camping trip.I use it when my girlfriend and my friends are on since we like traveling north and enjoy the view without rushing. When im alone though my favorite 4 door is the warrener.

I don't understand why people are knocking it's performance. Stat wise it has the top speed in the sedan class & 3rd in acceleration. Braking & traction aren't as good as some of the others but those can be improved with the right upgrades.

 

I also tested it on a short, straight track (0.62 miles) & it was the 2nd fastest sedan. Schafter was the only one that beat it.

shortest lived car in my garage, slow, crap handling and not a great deal of modifications... worst car of the DLC in my opinion.

It looks good and has some pretty good mods, I just can't stand the fact it sounds like an SUV



Only if you mean a diesel powered suv. Sounds just like it should in my opinion

It has an annoying shifting sound and controller vibration...just incase the slow speed wasn't enough for you to understand that it sucks.

I can drift nicely with that. But best not to use in Free Mode because you'll be an easy kid aiming target.

You've thought of that just now? Nice detective work, Sherlock.

The Glendale is food-proof, really. In case you have that one guy in your crew who eats during a shootout, and also finished your food for no reason.

Ill have two number 9s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, a number 7, two number 45s one with cheese, and a large soda.

Yeah, but that's the Willard. I remember that it's Sweet's mission.

The correct reference would be:
"ALL YOU HAD TO DO WAS *DRIVE* CJ"
x number of times you failed that mission because fatty McDipsh*t can't shoot

Highest top speed and 3rd highest acceleration in the Sedans class. You still may not like the Glendale due to styling, handling or particular preference, but don't believe the Glendale is a slouch in the Sedans class
