Is this good or bad for Aston? I know they wanted to leave Ford, so i hope it's a good move for them.

But unfortunately that will not help my acquiring an Aston - but i want one so bad! And i'm not picky - i'll take a Vantage V8, Vanquish, DB9.

Note: I'll take donations :-)

Wie hoch ist der Co2-Ausstoss ;-)?

First thing I saw and heard on the road yesterday in the morning was a Vantage (soon later followed by mint Austin Healey) - so it was fitting news to hear the night of the same day that Aston Martin is no longer burdened by the four letter name :-)

Dirk, kommt wohl darauf an, wieviel man fährt. :-)

Ich brauche ca 40 Liter Sprit im Monat. Frag mich nicht, wieviel CO2 das produziert. Mit einem Aston wäre es wohl etwas mehr.
