uh dude.. aston rare?? There's a Aston dealer locally here in the bay area with 30 cars in stock and they're dime a dozen. It's affordable...

Well SANguru, I live in Georgetown DC and FL and I have yet to see an Aston V8 Vantage, I see plenty of Bentleys, Maybachs, M5/6, Maseratis etc etc, but never Astons. It might just be the timing, but where I live the Aston is the rarest of the bunch.

I probably see more Vantage's than 997tt's around here. A guy in my neighborhood has an m6, and another guy has e55 amg.

iIbecause this will be a daily driver.

I can't purchase until after the 1st of the year, so i'm trying to get a shortlist together.

Thanks for the input.

The wife is still leaning on me for the m6 vert or an aston. I almost bought her a year 2000 DB7 about a month ago for our anniversary, so she's kind of hot for those now.

I'm more about go than show.

Thanks again.

Get around Tyson Corner much? There's an Aston dealer there and I used to see them all the time on Rt7, especially in Great Falls and McLean Honestly though, considering the group of cars being talked about, I wouldn't consider any of the above mentioned rare...

I have my 2008 M6. Picked it up at the Welt and its off the ship waiting to go thru customs. I could buy any car I want and while I am very, very partial to BMW, for the price and performance (V10) it is the best car out there. The differences between the 07' and 08' are subtle to say the least. BMW is giving off 4500 from left over 07's and great lease deals. You can save like 600 a month by getting a 07'. For me this did not work as I did European delivery, but if did not than the 07' would be in my garage.

The AMV8 is high on looks and low on performance. The Gallardo is a over Hyped Audi, the Ferrari's are used and they will be high in maintance. You could buy a used Conti GT but they are verywhere in my Neighborhood and my GYM looks like a Benlty used car lot.

That being said if you want looks and a car that not too many people have than Maserati just came out with their new coupe and while there are a few 650i's out there, the M6 is still sort of rare near me. Most people dont want the SMG and others think its too much car.
If you have any other questions ask away.

Great car - congrats.

I followed an M6 to work today. I was trying to get the guy to open it up a bit, but he wouldn't play along.

I haven't driven one yet - that'll be the test, I suppose.

Thanks.

In NoVA and Potomac, exotics aren't rare. I saw a Porsche Carrera GT and was like "oh, another exotic". And the Potomac Village parking lot is basically a luxury car dealership lot in the mornings.

You could go exotic car shopping on the North Shore of Long Island, just by sitting in the Starbucks on the corner of Bayview Ave and Plandome Road

Have a latte' and an Aston

There's nothing performance oriented about the Continental GT. At least around here they're all over the place, and same with the M6.

This is gonna be your daily driver right? In that case the M6 and 997 might the most practical in terms of service. Dunno how reliable AM's are, but I doubt there are nearly as many service centers.

Good luck and let us know what you do.
