"Introducing Benny’s Original Motor Works, a new customs shop in downtown Strawberry that offers a huge range of lowrider customizations that can turn your classic junker into a high-spec, tricked-out king of the streets."
―Description.

Benny's Original Motor Works is a custom shop introduced into Grand Theft Auto Online in the GTA Online: Lowriders Update. It is exclusive to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC renditions of the game.

Description

"Located conveniently in Strawberry, just south of the Olympic Freeway, Benny's is a full service garage specializing in Lowrider culture and customization."
Rockstar Newswire Description.

Benny's Original Motor Works allows players to fit specialized equipment and accessories to their cars in GTA Online, such as hydraulics, custom stereos, vinyls, engine and interior mods and unique paint-jobs. Unlike Los Santos Customs, where the vast majority of vehicles in the game can be modified, only a select few models can be modified at Benny's Original Motor Works. It was initially available for selected muscle cars, sedans and vans for lowrider-type modifications. However, with the subsequent updates, this was greatly expanded for selected vehicles for high-performance modifications and full-body "retro" conversions.

Before any modifications can be fitted, the player must pay to upgrade their base vehicle to a "custom" variant, after which the additional modifications unique to Benny's can be applied. As well as the actual garage, Benny also owns a website under the same name (URL:Bennysoriginalmotorworks.com) which lists the vehicles that are eligible for modification at the shop, as well as allowing players to purchase those vehicles (the prices for which are the same as on the various other vehicle websites in the game).

Fitting parts to the cars is an almost identical process to how modifications are applied at Los Santos Customs, with similar categories. Additional camera angles are provided for the various interior modifications. The original modification options from Los Santos Customs are also available to be applied at Benny's, although some can only be applied to the base model car rather than the conversion.

A total of 27 vehicles are eligible for customization in Benny's Original Motor Works:

Modifications

"Deck out your engine block with covers and air filters, coat your interiors with velour, leather and patterns, choose custom colors and designs for your dials, or add a new steering wheel and custom shift levers. Give your ride lift with hydraulics - the more powerful the pumps, the higher you can bounce. And boost your stereo’s performance with new speakers and subs in the back - a huge range of lowrider customizations that can turn your classic junker into a high-spec, tricked-out king of the streets."
―Description.

Benny's Original Motor Works can apply every category of modifications to the 20 custom cars, including the modifications also available at Los Santos Customs and Beeker's Garage.

Vehicles can have a range of modifications sorted into unique categories, namely Engine Blocks, Trims and Interior options. Benny's vehicle can be also modified at other mod shops, but they have limited access to standard categories, meaning interior options are unavailable outside Benny's.

Benny's customization options were solely available here. However, it was later available on CEO Offices (with the addition of a private mod-shop) and the Arena Workshop (by hiring a guest mechanic).

Trivia

  • The music track "This D.J." by Warren G can sometimes be heard playing inside Benny's garage. This song originally could not be found on any of the radio stations, but was later added to West Coast Classics in the 1.30 patch.
  • A business license can be seen inside Benny's Original Motor Works. Strangely, it does not specify the name of the actual business - which is simply stated to be "Auto Repair Premises" - nor does it provide a proper address and zip code - which is instead stated to be "A Street in, Los Santos, A Zip Code".
    • Additionally, the word "having" in the license statement is misspelled as "havin".
  • After the update was released, a Benny's Original Motor Works cap was obtainable if the players logged on GTA Online during October 25, 2015 which was part of the event weekend[1].
  • On the left pillar of the garage entry, graffiti resembling the original "GROVE ST 4 LIFE" tag from San Andreas can be observed, albeit in white. Before the update, the building did not have any graffiti on the front.
  • If the player visits Benny's website in story mode, the site will say that it is under construction.

    Attempting to access Benny's Original Motorworks in Story Mode.

  • Most vehicles that are upgraded to a custom variant in Benny's garage will have negative camber angle wheels. The only vehicles this effect does apply are Buccaneer Custom, Chino Custom, Faction Custom, Moonbeam Custom, Primo Custom and Voodoo Custom.
  • The wheels from the category 'Benny's Originals' cannot be bought for other cars at Los Santos Customs or Beeker's Garage, but they can be applied to all cars by using otherwise unconventional ways, such as trainers.
  • Despite claiming the custom shop only works on vehicles specified on the website, a sheeted-over Cheetah can be seen inside the garage.
