Exports and Imports
- This article is about a side mission in GTA San Andreas. For the side mission in GTA III, see Import/Export. For the side mission in GTA Vice City, see Sunshine Autos Import Garage.
Exports and Imports are a series of side-missions in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas which become available after "Customs Fast Track" for Cesar Vialpando. Similar to Grand Theft Auto III's Import/Export feature, Exports and Imports consists of a series of vehicle deliveries for money, as well as the ability to purchase any of the vehicle delivered.
To "export" or sell a vehicle, the player must obtain a "wanted" vehicle (as shown when the player is told via an on-screen message: "You can export this vehicle over at Easter Basin Docks.") and take it to specific marker on a cargo ship in Easter Basin, San Fierro, where it can be lifted in place via a magnetic dockside crane, or simply driven up a ramp linking the dock to the deck of the ship if the vehicle is compact enough to be driven onto the ship. Once the vehicle is in contact of the marker (and released from the crane magnet, if lifted using the crane), a message will show up that the player has successfully exported that vehicle. The player will then receive money depending on the type and condition of the vehicle.
To "import" or buy a vehicle, the player simply needs to walk up to the board in Easter Basin and select which vehicle they would like to import. The player can only import certain vehicles depending on the day of the week and vehicles are unlocked for importing once they have exported a certain vehicle in the list.
Exporting all 30 wanted vehicles is a requirement for 100% completion.
Each wanted list consists of ten different vehicles needed for export, ranging from motorbikes and regular sedans to off-roaders and sports cars.
Players have the option of either plucking a vehicle that spawns normally in traffic or parking space, or locate one specifically spawned in one spot when they are requested in the list. Note that vehicles will only spawn at certain locations if it is currently on a list; for example, the Euros will only spawn at The Camel's Toe if the player is on the third list of cars and has not exported a Euros already.
Wanted vehicles that are specifically spawned usually have custom license plates.
The max rewards are dependent on the Monetary Value of the vehicle set in the Handling.cfg file.

Once unlocked, available vehicles for import originally consist of a base selection of a few cars uncovered from the shipping containers during "Customs Fast Track" (including the Club, Perennial, and Jester), with no vehicles available for Saturday. A specific model of vehicle wanted on the list will appear to purchase once it is delivered, but will only be available on a specific day of the week. Vehicles exported will be available for purchase at 80% of their export value (e.g. if a vehicle grants $999,000 when exported in 100% health, it can be purchased for $799,200).
The import lists are listed depending on the order of vehicles delivered. The first vehicle on the first list to be delivered will be available on Saturday (which initially has no available vehicles). Subsequent vehicles delivered will be made available in following days, in addition to any a milestone reached when a bonus vehicle is also made available in the next day.

- If the crane magnet is left hanging just above the vehicle delivery point on the ship and the player delivers the vehicle without using the crane, the vehicle will still be delivered, but the vehicle will immediately be stuck on the magnet upon being parked, suspending the vehicle in the air during delivery. Being required to exit the vehicle, the player will inevitably receive fall damage, depending on how high the magnet is positioned.
