I'd be willing to bet very few people that buy any Aston Martins ever track them anyways; so whatever speed it has, as long as it is fun, is enough. Not to mention the exhaust note is great.
The biggest drawback is the maintenance costs, though I can't really speak towards reliability.
Agreed. I have yet to pull my balls out of my purse and track my E90, but I fully intend to do it. It's been 8 months since I got it but I don't get to drive it as often as I would like. We're still getting to know each other.
I find my M to be just about the perfect car but being a car fanatic I can't keep myself from looking at what else is out there. You know... just because you found the perfect girl and got married doesn't mean you're going to stop looking at other girls as they walk by... (getting off topic here)
