oh my car! tips and tricks: how to succeed in oh my car

Some aspects of the game aren’t explained to you, so here are a selection of Oh my Car! tips and tricks to help you out:

  • Align until green: when getting rid of dents in the car, align the car body until it turns green. This is the best position, and earns you the most cash
  • Angle grind and paint: when painting and angle grinding, make sure you do all of the roof, and don’t worry about touching the windows – this game isn’t entirely realistic
  • Pumping tires: to get the pointer in the green when pumping tires, make sure to press before it lands in that section. The pointer keeps going for a little bit after you click, so it’s a good idea to press a little earlier
  • Top prize and Tip Jar: to maximise your earnings, make sure to use the top prize and tip jar – if you don’t mind watching an ad, that is – as you can get a lot more money and greatly increase the cash you get out of a renovation
