A midnight spin, an impromptu road trip or a romantic drive with your partner, having your own car is an empowering feeling — and sexy as hell. But like all big-ticket purchases, it must sadly begin with the long, tedious experience of going to showrooms, contacting dealers, bargaining till the cows come home and, God forbid, an often-delayed delivery. As if that wasn’t enough, terms like torque, BHP, wheelbase and ABD are thrown around like nobody’s business, confusing the hell out of you. Which is where vLer, an end-to-end online car dealer, steps in, ensuring that you steer clear of the rigmarole and get the car delivered at your doorstep.
