It looks like James Seah isn’t the only actor who was lucky enough to find a second-hand Mercedes-Benz at a pretty good deal recently.

After four or five years of driving a Hyundai that he spent almost S$80K on, Mediacorp artiste Benjamin Tan had just three months to find a new ride before the Certificate of Entitlement (COE) on the old one expired. After doing some thinking and calculating, he concluded that getting a new vehicle would be more worth it than renewing the COE.

His car-hunting adventure actually started last year, but his more savvy friends advised him to wait a while longer before buying anything as the COE prices were very high at that time.

Then, a few months ago, his pals found him a used Mercedes-Benz C180 that they believed ticked all the right boxes and had the right price.

“So I went down to the dealership to take a look and do a test drive, and that’s how it became my car!” Ben told 8days.sg in a phone interview, adding that it happened on March 25, two days before his 28th birthday.
