  • If the player obtain a vehicle that support bobbleheads modifications in Story Mode with trainers or glitches and bring it to Los Santos Customs, all the Halloween Surprise's bobbleheads will be still available for purchase even after November 16th. This is probably a developer's oversight, since all the vehicles that support bobbleheads, normally, aren't available in Story Mode.
  • It is the third update that features time-limited content, the first and second being the Valentine's Day Massacre Special (formerly) and the Independence Day Special, respectively. It is also the first time-limited content exclusive for the enhanced version.
