    As everyone has likely seen by now, cars have had a pretty noticable update. Since @Simple didn't announce an update, is this a workshop adddon update by the developers of the vehicles? There are also a few things broken, such as not being able to switch seats while in a vehicle. What do yall think about this car update?

    The repair NPC should be placed in Rockford Customs, as it is a suitable place.
    Also instead of going to the Rockford Customs to get your parts repaired, there should be a shop dedicated to parts for your car(s). (You must buy the parts, not for free.)(Mechanic can charge less/ more to make it fair. Also you can now switch seats. That issue seems to be fixed.

    The updates are pretty yucky to be completely honest. [Opinion]

    I have noticed that I have gotten better fps since this new update, so I have to say I like it.

    I like it, because now I can drive off the cliff with minimal damage.

    Thanks VCmod.

    Usually you wouldnt take much damage if you landed on your tires in the previous version as well.

    I like it, because I can drift and do doughnuts in my New Beetle. Soon to be Jaguar (U prob think that I'm too poor for that.... ur right) but I'm gonna work hard to get it. So buy my aks, I'll work hard for u, and u can buy in bulks...PLEASE! And the drifting and doughnuts is why we need a PRIUS, plz. I drove it on a vcmod server, it was fun ok, and it had the same driving weirdness like chronet has, I don't think I need to elaborate on that

    It'd be great if admins could spawn a repair npc for the time being...
