    My car

    Love it. Use it pretty much everyday to take my son to school and then go on to the office; round town I use it in auto mode which is smooth and seamless, but on the way home, out of the town, just flick the down shift and press the loud pedal and it's a different machine. I'm amazed how much room there is in the cabin; next month I am driving my wife and 11 year old son down to south-west france for a week and we don't expect to feel cramped in the cabin, although the boot will be full! Running costs after 4 months are not as bad as I expected, but fuel consumption goes through the roof if you get stuck in a traffic jam.

    I have a DB9 too and use them alternately; in comparison the Aston is smoother and easier to drive round town, but less manoeuvrable and feels more cramped inside - I couldn't have taken that one on the trip to France and expect to get us all in comfortably. It is such a hard choice to make each morning...

    Equipment level is excellent and am looking forward to using the Ferrari in the summer with the roof down. I've had my share of leaky ragtops before so the folding hardtop just hits the spot.

    No issues with reliability at all, or the quality of the finish, which is superb.
