i wouldnt worry about entry level 3 series in terms of reliability... if you are a car person you just do what you have been doing then you are alright... (aka change oil 3-5k with premium synthetics, keep up with coolant changes, all fluids should be swapped every 2 years etc. etc.)

i bought my preowned bmw x3 (my other car) without looking at the history... some person traded it in and i picked it up at an audi dealership
but then again, i have owned 5 BMWs already in my life (25 years old) and i know what to expect going into owning a BMW...

the second you buy it, take it to an indy and have them change coolant, brake fluid, oil, trans fluid, diff oil...
after that, you should be fine for a while

Guys I testdrove the DB9 year 2006, I think i'm trading it in for my 997 turbo. I can't even explain the feeling in the Aston Martin... will give it one more week before I decide. But i'm 90 % sure. 

 

What do you guys think, it's a good deal?

the DB9 is a beautiful car, while the 997TT is nice, but not exactly beautiful - I say do it. What color?

It's black and it's a cabriolet (good now for summer) v12, touchtronic. I think the year was 2005 or 2006 on it. And my 997 was going for the same price so there will be a small diffrence I would pay not much at all. 

 

It's pretty much the same, but I think the DB9 is more class and at the same time little sporty. As for the 997 I have now it's just a race car, no space at all.

I love the wooden doorcaps on the DB9, I don't know if I am alone on that or what, lol. I was absolutely mesmerized by them when i first saw that car and still think they look great.

Lol, I love them too and I dont think you are the only one. Well it's a 6 year old car but I think it still looks great almost like the new one.

All Ashton's minus the four door and Toyota give me a chubby, otherwise they all look the same.

DB9 is like an SL mercedes... slushbox and unsporty
911 turbo is sporty and godly fast..
how do you go from something that goes 0-60 in less than 4s to something thats more like a benz

I would do a DB9 over a porsche. Never driven an Aston, but damn owning one is on my bucket list
post #4286 of 15719

Because i'm tired of sport cars. I want a more business but in the same way sporty. That's why i'm going for DB9 and I love the design on it.

I'd take a DB9 over a 997tt. Especially as a daily or frequently driven car.

Thank you, I think i'm going for it. I'm taking a extra look on the Maserati Quattroporte but the DB9 was much more comfortable to drive (and sexy) tounge.gif

ive never considered DB9 in astons arsenal... mainly because of slushbox
if you are going to drive an exotic, dont get one with a slushbox and cant go very fast?
just my 2c
if you want to be driven in an exotic - RR for example - then the slushbox makes more sense

from what perspective?
997 is designed as a supercar that can be used everyday
probably costs half as the aston in cost per mile driven, looks fine when its dirty, and will wake up and play anytime you ask it.
ive driven 997s and those things are godly comfortable and ludicrously fast

you cant drive a db9 anywhere without being looked at like a james bond wanna be probably
db9 is a true exotic, you cant park it just anywhere and have to treat it like a ferrari
porsche on the other hand... its so much more versatile

also, would you trust your daily commute to the brits or italians?? flat battery here, bad electronics there?
porsche as clarkson would say is as reliable as a wood burning stove
