I got my DB9 05 a few months ago. I always wanted a AM after seeing the DB5 in films when I was a kid. Although it is an 05 I brought it as my every day drive and have had no issues apart from a few interior trim rattles that I will get fixed when serviced. I have owned performance cars before and agree that you do not have many gadgets and comforts inside. However, if you did have gadgets you would probably kill yourself in the car when you took your eyes off the road to mess with them. This car is meant to be driven and needs respect and concentration. I sit and look at the amazing design of the car and would not dream of changing it....well until I replace it with a DBS in a few years of course. For me, you can keep your F's, Porche and Maza's, Aston is a dream.
