Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Don't know really, cos I have had 54 cars, yet 54 and i'm not a dealer, just luv my wheels. Speaking of wheels, she's got 18in Jade 5 spoke so the ride is slightly firm.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They just luv it, real real head turner in Cubanite Silver.

Would you buy this car again and why?
YES, cos its as much fun as the baby Aston without the purchase and running cost.

What are you likely to buy next?
Hard one that, tried SL 350 and didn't like it, wasn't as good as SLK, probably buy newer R172 model 55 AMG if i go for 2 seats OR BMW M6 convertable if I go for 4 seats..
