Ecks great choices for you two new rides.

I heard AM has almost finalised a dealer in Mumbai and the dealer has started taking orders for the car. Hope this helps you in anyway.

Congrats on your new buy Ecks.The DBS is an absolute stunner.Pardon my ignorance ,Does all Aston Martins marqeees have Power,Beauty,Soul on the speedos? Is there any significance of this?

Congrats ecks, I am sure you are goning to love it.

Enjoy the car, the fog is real heavy and many accidents have been reported, drive safe or if the car is being driven down in a trailer then too give special instructions for slow transport.

Cheers!

So the DB is on Indian soil er, perhaps concrete floors of the air freight area .

@ecks, are you going down to DL to receive the car or will it be delivered at your doorsteps ?

That speedo really is stunning! Nothing touches Aston's sense of flair. But I have to be honest, I DETEST the counter-clockwise rotating tach! It just feels unintuitive to me.
