Rebuilding vehicles in Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 is the key to earning a profit and creating your own collection of stock and tricked out vehicles. But what ones are the best profit, and how much money needs to be invested? That is what this guide is for and it provides the answers to those questions.
The most important factor in rebuilding a vehicle in Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 is the 100% factor. Everything on the car must be at 100%. Nothing can be missing. As long as you have those two things going for you, the sale price will be maximized for a stock vehicle.
A big factor in your profit margin, other than your choice of vehicle, is the cost of the repairs. This can be offset by having spare parts in inventory. When you are doing jobs early on and midway through the game you should be selling the junk and stocking up on the rest. Then, before you start doing your first rebuilds, repair everything possible to 100%. After you're done, sell anything that isn't 100%. Now you'll have a nice stock of new parts that you can use in your rebuilds. This will help keep that repair cost down for the first few rebuilds, so that you can maximize the profits.
The last kicker is the star factor. A higher star factor means the parts are in better condition and that you have paid more for them. But that doesn't mean you'll have any better luck on the repairs. Also, many of those parts cannot be repaired. This means more money is wasted on parts you're going to be tossing out. So for the vehicles where there is some variety in the available star rating it is often better to go with the lower star option.
Here is a complete list of the vehicles from Car Mechanic Simulator 2015, along with the numbers that matter: what I paid for them, the repair cost, the sale price, and the profit margin.
Keep in mind that these can vary depending on which parts are good or bad, and how the repairs go along the way. This list will, however, give you a good idea of what you can expect. I have also linked the name of each car to the complete rebuild that I did of the vehicle.
