If it matters, the Vanquish has more legroom making it more comfortable to drive (and getting in/out). I assume the 14 Vanq is close in price to the 16 GT, so the Vanq will be a better long term...

Once you start driving a Vanquish, I think you'll not drive the Vantage very often. Don't feel like you need the 8 speed, the 6 is plenty fine and can be had for quite a bit less than the 8.

Some people register their cars in Montana to avoid the property tax. My tax bill for the 5 cars I have is $10k, so I'm really feeling the pain.

If you really do need two hands to turn the wheel, that doesn't sound normal at all. Steering is very good on Astons, but needing two hands sounds wrong to me.

I'm pretty sure they use some special version of the NADA blue book that we don't see. Unless they made some kind of mistake during lookup, there's little hope of changing it. I also thought they...

The only forged Carbon is on the exterior, the stuff inside is that messy chopped CF, which looks pretty cheap IMO.

I don't think DBS/9 difference is any more pronounced than DBS/11. And Vanquish comparison has to be to the DBS, not the DB9, since the Vanquish was its replacement.

Agree. But what did people expect when the DBS was going to be based on the 11? Just like the last DBS was basically a front/rear mod to the 9.

It's better than the 11, but then how could it not...

Man, you seem to have the worst luck with your DB9. You've got far more than your fair share of problems over the years. Sounds like you ended up with a bad ground somewhere due to the rain. Guess...
