I've driven plenty of manuals and autos too (no Astons), and in all honestly, autos appeal to my lazy side. Just wondered if people have more problems with one or the other where reliability is concerned.I would prefer a Manual transmission with any car but that is only because I feel like you are ACTUALLY driving the vehicle. However, I have no personal experience with with Astons myself. (not yet at least!)
Good luck on your search!
Congrats on your DB7VV, what a car!!!The auto affords electronic shift which is controlled by buttons on steering wheel or just toggle the shifter, fore and aft; very cool.
I just bought my 03 DB7 v-12 volante
