    My car

    I have wanted an Aston for a number of years, so, admittedly, am a big fan of the brand.

    I bought my first Vantage S (SP10) 6 months ago and love it.

    The look and sound are awesome and it regularly gets looks and thumbs up on the streets of Belgium, generally a nation of car lovers.

    The notorious gear-box changes are a small issue but I have learned to tame the gear-box, so changes are not as jerky as when I started driving it.

    The cabin is a pleasure to sit in, although I do agree some of the parts are a bit surprisingly plasticky (indicator stalks etc.) but it is mostly lovely and very high quality.

    I did have one early reliability issue but the local dealer and Aston Martin sorted them out thoroughly. Nothing in the last 5 months.

    We have used it for long drives to Le Mans as well as shorter drives around Belgium. It copes with both admirably.

    Running costs are high: The CO2 tax in Belgium is unbelievable and it does drink petrol.

    Overall, I am very pleased with the car and it DOES make me smile every time I look at it and get in it.

    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.
