[[Image:Blista Compact (GTAVC) (front).jpg|thumb|right|300px|A Blista Compact in GTA Vice City ([[:Image:Blista Compact (GTAVC) (rear).jpg|Rear quarter view]]).]] The '''Blista Compact''' is a 2 door hatchback available in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]], [[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]], [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]] and [[Grand Theft Auto IV]]. [[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]] features a car similar to the Blista Compact, named the '''Blista'''. In Grand Theft Auto IV, the Blista Compact is manufactured by [[Dinka]]. The Blista Compact is a seperate car to the [[Blista]] van seen in [[Grand Theft Auto III]], and [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]. ==Description== The Blista Compact is commonly found almost anywhere in [[Vice City in GTA III Era|Vice City]] or [[State of San Andreas|San Andreas]], and is generally considered to be a satisfactory car, particularly useful for quick getaways and general evasive purposes. In GTA IV, the Blista Compact is worth [[Dollar|$]]1,500 at [[Stevie]]'s garage, where Niko can bring the vehicle after completing all of his [[Stevie's Car Thefts|Text Message Car missions]]. ===Design=== Unlike many other vehicles, the Blista Compact's design has remained almost exactly the same in all its appearances, apart from its different engine sound and minor cosmetic differences. Like its design influence, the first generation [[wp:Fiat Brava|Fiat Brava]], the Blista Compact sports a hatchback design and a very small curb weight; in fact, the Blista Compact is easily the smallest and lightest passenger car in GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas (the [[Uranus]] is lighter in GTA IV). The car has a two-tone paintjob in GTA Vice City, with an always-black bottom half, but in later games was remodeled to feature a variety of colors in all-over and two-tone styles. In GTA IV, the Blista Compact may optionally feature a spoiler or sunroof; a variant is available with side-skirts, twin exhaust and a windscreen banner. There are several burnt out [[Wrecks|wreck]] versions of the Blista Compact.

=== Performance === Since its introduction in GTA Vice City, the Blista Compact has usually been an impressive small sports car, capable of outrunning rarer and more expensive performance cars. In GTA Vice City Stories, however, the Blista Compact is noticeably slower, and suffers from terrible oversteer. Blista Compacts all adopt front wheel drive. In GTA IV, the Blista Compact is powered by a high revving, twin cam 1.4L four-cylinder engine, giving it a top speed on par with much higher-end vehicles and acceleration superior to its nearest competition, the [[Futo]]. Its suspension is excellent, preventing understeer. At high speeds it is more than capable of cornering, and at low speeds it is easy to maneuvre through city traffic. Braking is acceptable, though ABS is not standard. Crash deformation is acceptable, though build quality is sub par, often leaving the Blista Compact disabled after only a few impacts. ==Locations== '''GTA San Andreas''' *Next to one of the radar towers at [[Easter Bay International Airport]] in [[San Fierro]] (only when wanted for export) *Usually seen in San Fierro and Las Venturas regions.

Bike Salesman is an side mission in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. The player can access the mission at the Hogs 'n' Cogs business, located in Belleville Park, Staunton Island. It is unlocked after the player completes the mission Driving Mr. Leone. The mission can only be accessed between the times of 8:00 and 18:00. The goal for this dealership is to sell all 40 motorbikes, with each bike having ten in stock. After the player has sold all of them, Hogs 'n' Cogs will pay up to $3,000 in protection money, as it is now an asset.

This side mission is required for completion.

Mission

It is pretty much the same as Car Salesman; there are four customers who each want something different in a vehicle (in this case a motorbike), and the player has to show them what it is capable of. Also for this one, every five bikes the player sells will earn the player a bonus.

Freeway

The customer on the far left wants a vehicle that can run over multiple people and evade the police. The player has to drive around and run over different pedestrians, and lose wanted levels. But for some reason you can run over pedestrians or just drive on the sidewalk around the stadium and around the stadium parking lot. The meter does not decrease, and will increase if the player does the aforementioned things.

PCJ-600

The customer next to the one on the far left wants a fast bike. For this one, the player has to drive around the Liberty City Memorial Stadium and back. The meter will decrease with collisions or slow driving.

Faggio

The customer next to the far right wants a slow bike. The player has to smoothly and rather slowly go around the fire station in Belleville Park. The meter will decrease with slow driving (not moving at all) and collisions.

Sanchez

The customer on the far right wants a bike for off-road uses. The player just has to drive outside paved roads, like sidewalks and grassy areas. The meter will decrease only if you don't drive.

Failing the mission

There are four ways the player can fail this mission. He/She could leave the car lot, kill the customer, let the sales bar reach zero, or let the time drop to zero.

Glitch

In the PlayStation Portable version of the game, playing the mission for too long will result in the PCJ-600 not spawning at all, negating the opportunity to gain completion.
