Absolutely excellent car in all respects. I have no complaints and am definitely a committed Aston woman from now on. Best supercar I've driven - which is saying quite a lot.

I owned this car for 2 years and it never put a foot wrong. The Sportshift was a first generation box and can be tricky when manouevering the car. Don't buy one if you really want to treat it as an automatic. Otherwise it was a dream to own and drive. No real problems encountered in my ownership. Servicing is once per year (every two with my Porsche before it) which make that more expensive, but speak to owners of large BMW's the cost sounded reasonable for the car.
