What has the "Import/Export DLC" 1.37 update changed?
(PC, PS4 and Xbox One)
Expand your criminal empire with a new frontier of illicit profiteering to explore:
Dominating the city’s trade in stolen luxury vehicles with GTA Online: Import/Export, the latest enterprising extension
of the CEO gameplay introduced with Further Adventures in Finance and Felony.
In Import/Export, CEOs will get their hands dirty alongside their Organization, stealing and dealing in “liberated” luxury
vehicles with Vehicle Cargo while Executive Offices get a facelift with the newest Executive Garage housing up to 60
vehicles. And tap into rare, highly unusual, and federally prohibited Special Vehicles that are capable of streamlining
your corporate misdeeds in explosive new ways.
SecuroServ’s suite of unlawful offerings has expanded in your Executive Office desktop.
Purchase Vehicle Warehouses – below board properties to store, mod and export cargo – then boost vehicles from
throughout Los Santos and Blaine County to fill your new property. Members of your Organization will be alerted to
procurable targets; whether it’s a simple smash and grab of an unaccompanied Turismo R, a tactful party crash to
steal keys and make a getaway, or an elaborate ploy to commandeer a police helicopter and use its on-board
camera to source your vehicle – there is a huge new range of theft to profit from.
Utilize all your tools to make these sourcing operations as smooth as possible including CEO Abilities and CEO
Buyers won’t want damaged goods and the cleaner the getaway; the cheaper the repair fees. Use the Turreted
Limo or Buzzard for armored protection and employ the tactical use of Bribe Authorities to drop unwanted heat
and Ghost Organization to temporarily take your operations off the map. Or dream big – the tactful deployment
of a Cargobob makes for quick extractions and deliveries.
A range of buyers are always ready to shell out for your newly acquired inventory.
Use the Ad-Hawk Autos network from your Vehicle Warehouse to connect with buyers and deliver the goods.
Private buyers are straightforward and will accept vehicles at stock spec but if you want to increase your margins,
appeal to Showroom and Specialist Dealers who are seeking modded vehicles and are willing to pay extra for them.
Manage your Exports and carefully evaluate risks; while you can deliver up to four cars at once with your
Organization, carefully consider the rival Organizations or Motorcycle Clubs on the prowl and make sure your
team is equipped to handle the job.
As you source more vehicles, you will unlock Special Vehicle missions; co-op based efforts that will require your
Organization to deal with a range of SecuroServ operations and plenty of vehicular mayhem.
Completing Special Vehicle missions opens up the ability to purchase these vehicles at a special SecuroServ
trade price, and owning specific Special Vehicles also unlocks new VIP Work.
These unique modes of transportation range from the armed and the armored, to the amphibious and the airborne,
and will all be stored in the lower level of your Vehicle Warehouse.
From Rockstar Newswire:

New Adversary Mode:
Collection Time (17 January 2017):
In Collection Time, it's all about the give and take. In teams of two to four, players battle to steal and hoard the most points over the given time period.

The team holding the most bags when the clock runs out wins. Stay greedy and hone your tactics across seven brand new maps. For extra earnings, play Collection Time between now and Monday, January 30th for Double GTA$ & RP.

Video Section: (spoiler tags in place)
Updated *UNOFFICIAL* Complied List from R*, R* SC, GTA Forums and GTA V/Online:
Several changes have been made to the game Pause Menu, the Stats Page has now been moved to the end of the menu.
A new option has been aded to the menu allowing Purchase of Shark Cards without using PlayStation Store.
When in Party Chat you are automatically sent an invite to the players session to improve joining friends sessions.
Several old awards have been removed from the game, these were the old free roam events DIstract Cops, Destory Target Vehicle, Armoured Cars,. Smuggler Planes however they have not corrected the statistics page meaning it is no longer possible to obtain all 129 awards listed on the stats.
LJT is still annoying by calling to advise you of supply runs/sell runs when engaged in other activities
Currently there are reports that business supplies and delivery missions may not be working 100%, supply stocks not currently filling the buisness to expected levels and vehicles being destroyed randomly on delivery runs, specifically the fourth Western Daemon bike on a supply run.
Quick Job is still randomly placing you in the wrong jobs so I have found a work around which is to go to the specific job corona in a public lobby and it will place you into a lobby with other players, however be aware you may be kicked by the host, will add a video for this later.
You can now make playlists with Contact Missions.
In order to make a Playlist with Contact Missions you must do the following.
1. Play and complete each mission you want to add to the playlist.
2. After returning to freeroam press pause, go to the second tab and select Playlists > Create Playlist
3. Go to Recently Played list and you will see each contact mission listed.
4. Click Add.
5. Save Playlist.
NOTE: You can only add each mission once so unfortunately you cannot make 16 x Rooftop Rumble.
You cannot add Non Contact Missions.
Update on Bikes:
Bikes appear to no longer show on the bike rack but are still actually present, if you go up to the bike rack and press right you can us as normal.
BMX Bikes can now be claimed through Mors Mutal Insurance however a test on a Cruiser bike did not allow it to be claimed so I am
going to do further testing on this.
I have found that the Bike Rack has been removed from the Vehicle Management menu within your properties along with the bikes being displayed, I suspect this was an attempt to correct bikes being moved to the garage floor but am going to make a support ticket on the subject to ask.
