I love the look and design of the new DB9, plus I like the fact that it's a four door.

I definitely and strongly prefer the design of the Aston, but I've never been in the Continental and suspect its interior might be spectacular.

On the contrary I've not been impressed by the interior of a brand-new DB9 whose owner told me that it was already doing annoying noises after 2 months. But what an engine


Why not considering a Maserati Quattroporte ?

Aston.. no question. That car is hot. And those numbers don't really mean the GT is faster. I'd say the DB9 is faster where it counts. Hell, I'd even take the V8 Vantage over the GT.

As some of you have read, we are in the car market. It has been frustrating to say the least when each partner (wife) has a choice of their liking. It's I want, she wants and I'm about to give in to her desire because for me there are greater battles to win.
She has been sending me links to various cars she likes and the other morning she affixed to the refridgerator door a picture of the Bentley-Continental convertible.
Anybody got any dough they can front me!

Best Regards,

Gary (in the poor house)

+1 for the D89. I'm not a big fan of the Bentley because it screams P Diddy. Plus, the D89 is sure to be a better performer on the track.

But the DB9 even if it's far from a giant Ford still has some disturbing elements ... Like a (not even properly) rebadged Ford key.

Is the AM sedan out for sale already? Has there been a price announced? If not, the only AM with a 9 which can be purchased at the moment is the DB9.
