How to exit car and leave engine running?


Recommended Posts

If you don't mind a bit of damage to your windows (if it's a hardtop) you can use this method. Worked for me.

1. Get in your car
2. Get out, fire a shot at your steering wheel
3. Get back in
4. Get out

Or something like that. I used that method to take some shots of my new Kuruma, had a broken window but I just took them from the other side instead.

All you have to do is change your player stance before entering the vehicle; ie. Shoot a bullet with your pistol right before getting into your car (Doesn't matter where you shoot, I shoot up in the sky with a silenced pistol) and it will change your player stance to combat - meaning if you exit your vehicle, the game will leave the vehicle idling until you re-enter it.


Vehicle idling in combination with hood removal works real well for car shows as you can shoot most hoods 2x with the Heavy Sniper and pop the hood up. (As long as you don't drive forward too fast, the hood won't fly off)


P.S. The radio naturally stays playing whatever station you were listening to if you change your player stance before entering/exiting the vehicle.

Surely a simple ASI mod will fix this and make it work like in Gta iv(F to exit and leave engine on, holding F to exit and turn the engine off)

I've rolled out or fell out when my car hit another going to fast and crashing

seriously there is lot of difference from gta 4 in such cases! exiting vehicles, turning off vehicles ! such features are good in gta 4 only! And the worst thing is car damage! Even we hit a bus at high speed no much damage in gta 5. wtf
