All he has done thus far is ask our opinion on cars, so cool the jealousy a bit, okay?
actually, If I remember correctly, he said he wanted to get a car to drive his frineds around in until he got his bentley GT. Any car he gets now is going to be a throwaway car in 1/2 years. THAT'S why I was pissed at him. he was flaunting his money around. Woulda been better if he said he wanted to spend 100k on a car, said he was 21 years old, and didn't even mention the continental GT.

Ya, actually. I wouldnt die if I had to, you wouldnt have to force me, but I would not like it as much as having a BMW 6-Series or something comparable. I dont like Ford products all that much. Thus I dont like Mazda's that much either, but, hey, thats just me. Ford can make some good products, I just dont seem to care for the company.

ouch... your comparing a db9 with a 6 series bmw...

i was thinking more along the line of exotics... you know... "ferrari" and such

a 6-series is nice though... but only the m6 will have a performance thats comparable to the db9

Disliking the products offhand due to disliking the company? Finding out who they are made by changes teh opinion of the car? Not liking Mazdas because Ford owns part of the compmnay????

Man, start liking things on their own merits, not on nameplates.

other than who OWNS Aston, what makes it inferior to the 6 series?

Just another one of my opinions. I must say the new Mazda MX-5 is quite nice! As is the RX-8. The DB9 is a cool car, and I like the DB7 and the Vantage, but I just think when it comes to that kind of money I would rather have a M6.

You are right, I shouldnt judge on nameplate, but on the actual vehicle, and I am working on changing my ways (one year ago I wouldnt even take your SVT Contour seriously), but that takes time.

and with the money you'd save buying the m6, you can purchase a whole other nice car.. say a range rover to go offroading..

I dont think many people take Range Rovers off roading. Maybe a Land Rover Freelander, but not something as upscale as a Range Rover.

I'd just like to tell everyone, that there WILL be a 750iL coming in either 2006 or 2007 as a mid-life refresher. There are minor changes to the headlamps and tailamps as well as new bumpers. I actually think it looks pretty good. The 750 will only come in iL trim and is powered by a 4.8 liter V8 with 360 horsepower. Here are some pictures:
