Damn That Aston looks astonishing. Well Any Aston looks damn good So I would take any of them without any Bias

We already have a couple of mercs and were none to happy with their "Dhaba" like service , hence the decision to try BMW.

I give the parts to the dealership for installation . Plus I put in days of research and then when I am equipped with enough knowledge that no one can take me for a joy ride / fool me , I purchase the parts and know exactly how they will be installed.

The thing is though, the V12 Vantage weighs just 70 pounds less than the DBS and the DBS to my eyes looks way better, especially since I've seen and heard it in person. Any performance advantage over the DBS, if it exists is likely to be negligible. Also, from what I've heard, Aston have tuned the exhaust to sound more muted compared to the DBS. The only advantage may be price, but if I was spending a quarter of a million dollars, I wouldn't care about saving 40 G's.
