When I had to replace my CRM I ordered a replacement from one of the well-known overseas supply houses. The new unit arrived, I plugged it in myself, and it didn't work. I reconciled myself to...

To be specific, I bought my 2006 DB9 Volante with 39,000 miles in 2014 for $38,000. I had looked at two other 2006 Volantes, one asking $36,000 and another asking $38,500.
I thought that I'd prefer...

Subtle DB9 price changes

I don't think many of us bought our Astons for anything other than the joy of owning one. Nevertheless, it's always been interesting to me that the dominant position has been "don't ever expect the...

2006 db9 & 2010 xkr

My brother drove his 2010 XKR 700 miles to visit me this weekend and we had a good time switching off between his car and my 2006 DB9.
The XKR has 60 more bhp than the Gen 1 DB9, but we both agreed...

I agree with your decision. It seems like some individual Astons are super reliable while others are constant heartaches - regardless of the model type.

Don't give up on the Gen 1 DB9 Volante. ...

OT - Malware is everywhere!

We have four cars in our family that have separate wheels and tires for summer and winter. Because of that, I have an Autel MaxiTPMS TS501 scanner that I use to reset the TPMS after each change. It...

Seafoam

I've never used Seafoam, but I know several people here do.
If you use it, what are the circumstances? Before mothballing your car for winter? Occasionally to clean out gum?
Thanks.
