We’ve had our fill of driving the W205 C-class; with a daily driven C 200 at home and having spent some 3,000 km on a roadtrip to Hua Hin and back in a C 43 AMG. And while I found the C 200 to be a little unenthusiastic, I had secretly fallen in love with the C 43. Now, you may argue that I preferred one over the other simply because of power, but you’d be wrong — take the humble VW Golf as an example; I have driven, and liked, every variant. This time around, we get to drive…

In today’s digital age, people looking to purchase material goods tend to turn to the Internet to get the best possible deals. And why not? When I do my groceries, I try to do some quick price comparisons online before either heading out to make my purchases or, if I am lazy, have it sent to me doorsteps at the cost of delivery and a few extra swipes on the phone or browser. This is the same when it comes to buying used cars on the Internet. While car ads used to be published in newspapers and magazines before, the…
