    My car

    It is absolutely gorgeous. People often stop me and comment about it, its a magical thing to own - it mkaes you feel good evertime you step inside. the acceleraton and handling are surperb, the noise awsome, it has balance and poise.

    after 12 months and 10k miles - the sat nav is total rubbish, the seats not as good as BMW do, the dash is not backlit,there is an engine issue with the cam belt, some condensation insdie the lights but..

    the design inside and out is stunning, the seating position excellent, the hifi great, the detailing and workmanship out of this world.

    My car

    Bought this after I got rid of the awful Gallardo Coupe, with it's Audi centre console. This car is in a totally different class, with which others simply cant compete. Beautiful from the outside and simply refined on the inside. The noise this things makes is breathtaking, and I have to agree with a previous reviewer in that you do smile every time you step into it. Corners like its on rails and power is plentiful.

    My car

    I waited a long time to final get this car, the dealer made more mistakes than I care to remember and there were the inevitable niggles such as the phone never reading the sim card (don't buy it) and the braking in of the clutch and gear box. I confess to stalling the car all the time at first but then friends who also drove it didn't stall once, so maybe it was a bit of me as well.....

    The visibility is bad to the rear quarters and you can't open the boot if it's rained as it drains into the car but despite all that I wouldn't drive another car it holds the road brilliantly and although many complain about the speed it goes plenty fast. Plus it sounds like a dream and people let you out of junctions.

    I smile every single time I get in. I have never done that with a car before.

    My wife drives a 911 and it does everything right but is dull, not to mention no one likes you and will never let you out.

    My car

    Well, my Dec 06 AMV8 Vantage is a total dog!

    It cuts out frequently (11 times so far...) which is great fun at speeds plod would frown upon, resulting in no brakes and no steering.

    The fly-off hand-brake flew off in my hand.

    The tracker has a mind of its own and keeps telling me the car is stolen.

    The boot leaks rainwater.

    The sound system only works on the left channel.

    The TMC function on the radio/sat-nav does not work.

    There is a rip in the body shell hidden behind the LHS light cluster.

    The microphone on the rip-off telephone option is lousy (but now working after warranty rework).

    The gearbox is a nightmare and has been reworked under waranty with a lower viscosity oil plus a different linkage (apparently).

    It's a beautiful car but a total dog. Aston's response has been lousy. Buy one and regret it.
