I had Mercedes C63 AMG and BMW E46 M3 before I bought 2007 Aston Martin. It’s the best sports car I’ve had a chance to drive. Its handling is a thing to admire. It does rival E46 M3. I almost have no problems with body roll while steering is firm but not too heavy. Craftsmanship on the auto is also great. I could criticize GPS since it’s not that reliable but who needs it when a cellphone can do the same job even better. All the surfaces are covered with expensive looking leather, aluminum and suede. Even cup holders are covered with leather. Perhaps this model is not that fast but hardly can I call it is slow. I still removed fuse which kept exhaust bypass closed at low RPMs. It made exhaust great and throaty. My recommendation is to purchase six speed manual which is more fun to row your own gears. If you obtain premium audio system with Alpine seven speaker and subwoofer, you won’t regret it for certain. Some of you may find the seats too narrow but they fit me perfectly. This model excites me and I’m going to drive it for many years. It’s a reliable choice which is unlikely to let you down.
