    Congrats Mike.   I thought you told us you were married in the Worlds Sexiest Woman thread:)

    Haha, no she's just my girlfriend. Won't be for too long though Smiley Smiley

    You'd better hope she doesn't read that. Smiley

    She might take the wrong message from it .  Smiley

    That could end up bad, what if you have to marry her now?

    See? Eunice has already taken the wrong message from it. Smiley

    Or did I?  Smiley

    Mike's massage is very political for the situation though very clever:) Everybody gets a different message from it:)

    Good taste and let me be the first to say congrat's on the above too (provided she says yes).SmileySmiley

    haha, that is why I love this forum. you guys are regular part-time comedians! Smiley

    Re: I'm going to spoil myself this weekend

    color;

    black with saddle/black interior

    or

    metallic navy blue with black interior

    My only question about this car is what is the F-R weight balance. Is it front heavy with that engine and understeering.

    Other than that I would say you made a great choice Smiley

    I'm glad you included the word "car" in that text.

    The rest of us had moved on to discussing Mike's girlfriend, so it could have got pretty confusing.  Smiley

    Re: I'm going to spoil myself this weekend

    Re: I'm going to spoil myself this weekend

    Congrats on the AM V12 Vantage Mike! Great choice.

    easy_rider: Thanks again, it's supposed to be a secret - luckily she never checks the "stupid porsche" forum lol!

    Alex: I try my best, I hope it will not disappoint!

    Chris Lo: I wasn't suprised to be honest, you can get a Lambo or Ferrari almost immediately at most dealers at present.

    PS. where is Rossi now days?! Smiley

    Re: I'm going to spoil myself this weekend

    Awesome choice buddy!

    Should be a mad car....White is best IMO....Black or red interior is what Id do... 


    Re: I'm going to spoil myself this weekend

    Just curious Mike but why are you choosing a AM Vantage V12 over a DBS?

    Hi Alex. Firstly, the DBS is rather hard to park - I test drove one again this weekend and although it is a very nice car, the car is rather difficult to park IMO. I want to use this car almost as a daily. Secondly, the V12 Vantage is limited production - although I'm sure the DBS production numbers aren't that vast. It's the idea of it being limited that brought me over. Plus according to AM in my country, we will only be getting around 6-10 units in total.

    Lastly, the fun factor - can you imagine the powerplant of the DBS in such a tiny little car? Smiley Smiley

    PS. It's official, I'm getting the first one in the country Smiley


    Re: I'm going to spoil myself this weekend

    Mike, really can't wait to see your new babe! Smiley

    BTW, I have got some nice Lambo gathering photos for you.Smiley

    That's the first time I think I have ever heard of 'parking ability' influencing which supercar someone buys!! Great outlook Mike!! smiley00040.gif

    For me Aston Martin's are all about looks.  I find the DBS so much better looking than the Vantage so I wouldn't care about other things. As we all know, beauty is all in the eye of the beholder though.

    Hi Alex, I love the DB9 series shape, but it's starting to look dated for me. The Vantage still has a fresh new look and appeal to it.
