Press cars get raped... Multiply the mileage by 3x... That's it's REAL mileage based on wear & tear

Yes you're right! After a PPI, I was told the car was in an accident, brakes 50% worn and probably used for stunts and other tell tale signs of abuse. A Clean CarFax is not worth the paper its written on. Finding a used clean example is not so easy!

Congrats from a fellow Alloro Green owner. Love the color. Mine does not have the yellow lipstick. Looks great with it.

I would be a bit scared buying a press car but warranty should help.

I got offere multiple Vantage V12S press cars back when they were first new for over 50k off... I declined bc they have 10k of hard press miles, the interiors had very obvious wear & tear.

Avoid press cars

Yes - lesson learned! I spoke with Aston in Cleveland about another Vantage and they said the same thing - they never buy the cars offered to them by Aston Press Dept for these reasons. They seem much more professional and ethical.
