    Somebody sent me this.

    It's checked. Apparantly I'm immune to cheap animations with face cutouts of TG presenters dancing around to an Xmas tune dressed as elves. ;)

    I think I'm the only one who didn't find it that funny :|

    Let me just end the debate over Aston's and performance by using the Power Lap board for a quick comparison. If we take the Ferrari 575 Maranello and Aston Martin V12 Vanquish out of the equation because of the very wet weather conditions (where the Ferrari still beat the Aston), there is only...

    It wasn't an insult, as denoted by the smiley. Oh god, this discussion is obviously not going anywhere. Aston Martin's understated? Are you serious? :blink: And if you believe that acceleration alone means a certain car has better track performance then another car, then clearly we need...

    No but a Ferrari can sell through appeal based on performance merit, an Aston can't (and never really has). :hammer: See my above post, as I don't want to be repeating myself as you have several times already ;)

    You're whole argument seems to revolve around one car, the V8 Vantage. It went round the 'ring a few seconds faster then some of it's rivals. Conclusion? Astons are good at performance. JC says his wifes Aston has good reliability. Conclusion, Aston's are reliable cars. The Vantage sells...

    Remember Aston's are almost solely targetted at people where 'vulgarity' is a part of their lifestyle and anything shiny is capable of catching their (usually very short) attention spans. You know the sort, footballers, rappers etc. ;) That alone IMO puts me off the Aston badge, and that's...

    I'm enjoying this, absolutely hilarious this discussion. :lol: Firstly, it appears you have watched very little and read very few of Clarkson's work over the years to be taking his opinion as 'fact'. Secondly, Aston's have (and to this day still do) a pretty awful reputation when it comes to...

    Nice one, this episode definitely deserved the high ratings IMO. Will be interesting to see how the 9PM timeslot next week affects ratings

    LOL :lol: You trust Jezza opinion and take it as fact? As much as I love the guy, the simple fact is more often then not he is highly biased, and the badge he is most biased with is AM. If you can't see this then I'm afriad it might be you who needs to get their head out of their ass my...

    Well said mate :thumbup: I'd also be interested to see if that V8 Vantage was truly stock and whether Aston made any 'modficiations' to it, and to what extent. And even if it is stock, one car really doesn't make up for a whole family of cars through the decades which look pretty, cost an arm...

    Yeah, I think James summed it up well when he reviewed that Lagonda a while back. When Ferrari build their cars they put at least 50% effort into performance, with an eye on how well it will perform and how fast it'll go round a test track. Even something which is supposed to be a relatively...

    To each his own, but all Aston's have is their beauty, that's it. At least Ferrari's and BMW M cars have good performance and decent (if not great) racing pedigree.
