As long as it has been serviced properly, miles should not be an issue.

DB9 will hold value better is you keep it original. Adding kits etc will likely make it harder to sell eventually.

Correct on Aston and the DBS parts, they will not normally sell them to you.

people who add "kits" to their Astons should be banned from owning one
A rather broad sweeping statement:

- if you are racing the Aston, would this prevent you from adding spoilers to improve performance ?

- what about the DB7, it is build off a Jaguar base, does this make it a Jaguar kit car ?

But mikeauto6 dosn't want the body kit to race the car, he thinks it will enhance its apperance.....but I will agree with you that the DB7 was a Jaguar kit car made up from the parts bins of Ford and its subsiduary Jaguar......however it never concerned me thats why I was lucky to own 2 DB7's

Screwing & glueing fibreglass on a "hand" crafted aluminium masterpiece .... nooo .. however I did put the Khan 20" wheels on my DB9 & I'm really happy .. about as far as I would go.
