I'm looking to put my 09 DBS on the market again. It's still under the CPO warranty and very clean. I wanted over 160K last year but might take 130K or so now.

I've seen some '09's with around 14k miles going for as low as $139-$155k. Pretty good value if you ask me!
depends how u see it. i would never think a Aston is a good value even for $139-$155k if u ask me. they are pretty car no doubt but i can never justify them to be that expensive consider the build quality & the technology. don't get me wrong. if money is no subject i would totally consider it.

my friend who recently bought a DBS Black Edition convertible for 300K+. i respect that but i can't stop thinking how much hit it would take. the most important thing is the whole package certainly doesn't feel worth the price tag, not even at half of the price...

if you're friend paid 300k+ he probably made a lifestyle choice not a value choice. people do this all the time and there is nothing wrong with it. he probably feels it is well worth it. just like private air, etc. if you're worried about the 'hit' even a prius will take a 'hit' on purchase and probably have the same percentage drop. 09 DBS for 139-155 are a deal or the person who really can appreciate it.

I think you could probably get a 2009 with 10K on it for high $130's about now. There is a large difference between the ask and the transaction values.
This sounds about right, at this point in time.
However, I'm wondering in 6 months with the release of the new 310 Vanquish, how many "old" DBS's will come on the market and what will the pricing be at the end of the year. Perhaps waiting may be wise.
Speaking of which, has anyone placed an order for the new Vanquish?

Can you PM me info on your car? Is it 2+2? Miles etc? Thank you.

That's correct I believe 2010+ had that... It was just a slightly different tune, nothing you couldn't upgrade post purchase.

$130k would be a steal for a DBS, and I was just thinking the same for letting it drop more after the new Vanquish comes.

I agree and come end of the year in just a few months the market will change quite a bit so now I am leaning towards waiting til Nov or so.
I think you're not far off by then.
Does anyone know when the 2013 Vanquish will hit the floors?

can't say i'm not on the same boat as some of you fellas after unloading 2 cars recently, been eyeing on the ones with peddle-shift ZF trans, found a silver one at a local dealership (asking $147k w/ 22k miles) that got me looking more and more into it..

for around the same budget, i was jumping the gun on the new Tesla Model S Performance since I've had my deposit down on that car since 2010... but i'm having a bitter sweet regret about getting myself into something that has much unknown factor... first they promote the vehicle starts @ $49k after the $7.5k federal rebate (another $2.5k from the state of CA) with the capability of the driving range up to 300 miles with 0~60mph under 4.4 seconds... then they release the real price for that performance model to start at $90k+ before the rebate, next thing you know, the added options are putting me over $110k after tax... and all i was looking to get out of the car is simply a fast daily that either saves on gas or no gas at all for the next 6~8 yrs; yet after going through much thoughts, even with a gasoline-vehicle which just as fast, say the pre-own E63 that goes for about $40~$45k (maybe less), less of that from $110k, would it cost me $70k or more for maintanence & gas? probably not.

the choices for me are, stick with the Model S Performance for the next 6~8 yrs and kiss the DBS byebye; or, grab some beater for the next 6~8 yrs (I even caught myself looking at some stock/never-moded single-owner Supra Turbo 4spd w/ less than 100k miles for less than $20k), and then jump on the DBS when it drops to the $110k~$120k range? the latter also gives me more time to unload the rest of the cars i've got now..

I have eyed the electric cars as well...recently saw a bunch of Model S Teslas testing at Laguna Seca. I also considered the Fisker, which looks cool but is too slow.
I think you have to be careful with these 1st gen electric cars.

Personally I'd choose the DBS over the Tesla all day long. Though the purpose of these cars are quite different, I don't see why you can't daily a DBS - at least that is going to be my plan.

Model S > Karma on any given day, even the base Model S (0~60mph in 6.5 seconds) is way faster than the Karma; and for Karma's price tag you can take a loaded top-of-the-line Model S Performance, and then some!

As to their liability, technically the Model S (and the SUV Model X next year) is the 2nd gen electric Tesla consider their 2200 Roadsters sold from 2008 till now have been doing pretty, most of the first few hundreds of Model S actually goes to Roadster-owners, so reliability certainly won't be the issue.

Agree, I'd take the DBS over too, especially when the price is just $20~$30k more than the loaded Model S Performance at the moment; someone previously mention how even Prius would lose its value over time, imagine down a few years from now, I'm probably right if I say I'd lose more $ on the depreciation of the Tesla than the DBS. Although, during that time, if I'd be daily the DBS, for sure the cost of gas + maintanence would even up the game compare with the depreciation of the Tesla.

Another dilema for me though, is that personally I can't justify allowing myself to bring either $100k+ car to just anywhere without worrying about something bad is gona happen; think about it, you're local to me so you'd know these places too, would you take the DBS anywhere even if it's on an food-crave adventure to places you haven't been to in DTLA (ie. ktown/ctown), cutting through freeway traffic by taking the streets of East LA, or getting grocery from a local market down the street where parking sucks (think 99 ranch) and the driver next to you like to open the door all-the-way wide? Obviously, anything could happen doesn't matter what you drive, but I can definitely sleep a lot better if **** doesn't happen to either one of those two. It's not like the DBS has the best MPG for its power (city/highway for 12/18 is pretty low actually), so a MPG beater to pair it up is probably a better case for the combo; and yes I can do the same combo with the Tesla too, but what's the point of getting an electric car then? ... after thinking that last part I'm just back to square one.

Dammit I shouldn't have stepped into this part of the forum.
