I drove them because there were limited alternatives which appealed to me. - I’m exactly the Vantage’s target audience. - That being said, I couldn’t recommend using a Vantage as daily transport more highly. They’re wonderful cars!
yours has not broken down? a show car enthusiast with a DB9 on M3Forum is currently trying to find a lemon law attorney to return his
