Sarcasm is a very low form of wit.

Do you know how many Aston's have to go back to the work shop's for fault's it's quite a few trust me
Aston Martin still haven't sorted their Headlight condensation problem out, trust me !!!
I read Auto Express and CAR magazine regularly, and now smugly quantify cars in units of "Berlingo" currency. I was driving behind a Range Rover Evoque the other day, which is a pretty modest car really, but it costs 2-3 Berlingos depending on model. Honestly, if I had one sitting next to the Berlingo on the drive I'd still take the Berlingo regardless of value, and it costs just 1 Berlingo.
The most basic Aston Martin costs 6 Berlingos. And you can't even take the rubbish to the tip in it.

How many Aston Martins would last the 331,000 miles that my B9 Berlingo van has covered since November 2010, often with a pallet in the back exceeding 350kgs in weight, and about two thirds of the mileage was driven on motorways cruising at 70 mph?. I'm taking delivery of my fifth Citroen van shortly and they have all been hammered doing 75,000 miles a year on average. That's the kind of "quality" I'm looking for!

Totally agree, do you want an ornament or a vehicle - all my cars including my two classics get used as utility vehicles, anything from garden rubbish to suspension bottoming old metal. If I won a "nice" car, I'd simply have to sell it.
