Love all aspects of the car from styling to engine sound, comfort & running costs are reasonable for the type of car - but dealer service prices are criminal. Space is excellent in the cabin ( boot tight though) & the seats are very comfortable even over long distances. Sat nav is very fiddly to use but very accurate in operation. The occasional problems have always taken around 4 days to fix which means being without a car & services seem to take nearly as long as there is always a part out of stock.

Beautiful to look at. The sound is amazing, very addictive. Nice motorway car, not sure why some are saying its uncomfortable, have they actually been in one?. My only gripe is I think it's underpowered, my slk 55 amg was definitely quicker, but not as pretty to look at as the Aston. Real head turner.

Nothing and I mean nothing comes close to this car, it replaced my 9th Porsche and as such I now know my last. British and superb.
