Shootout location hint
To find a location that reduces your wanted level, has free Turismos, and is well positioned for a shootout, enter the Grotti auto store in Middle Park East at the intersection of Bismarck Ave. and Pyrite St. (across from Perseus). Go to the upper level to automatically reduce your wanted level of four or more stars down to only three. It is also a good place to hold up for a shootout with the police if you blockade the stairs with one of the show cars, then take position on the large balcony just outside the front windows to shoot everyone. When you are ready to leave, steal a show car (all Turismos) and jump it out a top level window for a great escape, while leaving behind a few stars.
