M6 and this Aston are expected to be similarily priced.

Aston Martins are - and probably will be - very different cars from BMW's. I have purchased new BMW's each year and just recently bought an Aston DB7 GT because there was no comparable BMW and I had a personal disposition to avoid German/French products.

The DB7 GT is a real enigma. Ten year old technology. Questionable build quality. Unbelievable service costs. But, oh the feeling of the Connolly leather . . .everywhere! And the uniqueness of the car brings attention that no BMW, Mercedes, or Porsche could ever muster. The "WOW!" factor is up there with Ferrari, but the impact is not as overt or in-your-face.

BMW's will always be quantifiably faster, better-designed, better-built cars. But, they will always be more "common" than an Aston. Five hundred DB7 GT's will be built in 2004. Even the Baby Aston, the DB8/AMV8 is estimated at just 1,000 to 1,500 cars when production is ramped up.

I have a deposit on an M6, what ever that might turn out to be. I look forward to the car. However, I cannot imagine me enjoying it more than my creaky, over-priced, but oh-so-unique Aston.

I drive the M3 and think it\'s butt ugly. It simply doesn\'t compare to some other cars IMO.

BUT it meets my needs and is a great car for me.

No way would I consider an Aston over a BMW.

BMWs are getting uglier by the model! First it was the E65 7 then the new Z4 then the new E60 5 series and now this! Benz kicks butt!
