How to buy used performance cars without being a dick.

As I wrote about last week with “the trials and tribulations of selling cars privately” there’s a certain amount of bullshit present on both sides of a sale. This unfortunately can interfere with the buying process. A disgruntled seller who’s put up with months of “low ball cash offer today” and being offered rotboxes part …

The trials and tribulations of selling cars privately.

Selling your car privately is a brilliant way of making an extra few grand. Research the market, take some great pictures of your car and let buyers know what makes it special and unique.

I spanked my Aston Martin around Rutland.

I’ve publicly said I think my Aston Martin is slow when compared to rivals of a similar price point and that when it’s presented with a long straight it can be lacking at times. However last week I dug through my coppers down the back of the sofa and bought some new shoes for the …

I took an Aston Martin Vantage in part ex, here’s what I think of it so far.

I wrote in march about how the Aston Martin vantage is the ultimate head against heart battle for myself. The time finally seemed right and after being offered one part ex it finally happened. It’s by no means a fast car when stacked up against the RS7 or my GT-R but my god it’s beautiful. …

Audi RS7 vs R35 GT-R battle of the £35k sports cars.

Now I know what you’re thinking, these cars don’t exactly share a sector of the market when they’re new, and you’d be right.
