Congrats Ecks. It looks amazing and as someone suggested, "007" is the number it should sport.

So KD, any mods planned on the DBS? or is it too early to think about it?

Mods on a DBS will be slightly over-doing things I believe.
Its better not to mess with soul of an Aston Martin.Just enjoy it the way it is!

Also we're still eagerly waiting on an test drive review / Long term ownership of the other cars in the stable.
The car is being sent back on a trailer to chandigarh bro. But I will take on road pictures once I am back home on saturday and will also write down a long review after I have driven it for a week.

I'm sure DBS will be your first choice for your daily ride from now onwards. Also what's your brother's reaction?
The M3 and the DBS will be by choice of daily cars. Will keep alternating between them. And my brother also loves the AM.

I remember watching one in Oz, i was speechless. Exhaust note was sweetest ever heard

Just curious what are those 4 vents on the hood?

OT:

Is there any AM in Bangalore. I really feel like watching one!
The vents are for keeping the engine cool.

Just imagine the fun factor of a 510 bhp V12 beast with a manual tranny!!!
Correcto!

And I agree, this does look better than the LP, maybe not as loud in appearance but it's better overall. Will certainly be the best looker of your garage even after the California is here.
I agree!

At this point I must add that I like the 458 more every time I see new pics or video of it! I think I've changed my mind! ;-)
Me too!

It is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark water of that silver shell we call the DBS.

Congratulations on that beautiful silhouette!
Thanks bro!

Congrats Eck!!
oh man your garage is becoming a collector's one with all those best of best and drooling imports.
I think MB SLS or SLK ML would complete your garage with world class best cars under one roof. Any plans?
I am may sound funny, but do you have any plans to buy a blazers similar to Bond blazer while driving this DBS.

Just read your previous post and i believe the 458 has started growing on you. So any change of plans to be expected with the california ?
And also did you have a look at the new 599gtb with the improved handling package ? Tiff Needel found it to be revolutionary.
