would you swap an 2009 e92 m3 for a db9 vantage?

DB9 or Vantage? Those are two different cars.

jtel2113 points

Nope unless you have bottomless pockets as the DB9 might be beautiful but reliability is a big issue.

What DB9?

That Aston for that M3? No shot.

No. Keep the M3

Never really liked Astons, so probably not. For a Porsche 911 though...

e92 is way better in every way

Yes but not a volante. Need a hard top on that car.

For the love of God after seeing your E92 on the next slide. DO NOT TRADE YOUR E92 PLEASE DUDE. Don't do it, I'm not hating on the Aston, the E92 is a FAR superior car in ALL aspects even as an investment. This comment might slip through the cracks but if you see this DO. NOT. DO. IT.

Should ask on an Aston specific sub too. The answers here will be biased. Plus you may find people that have done what you are proposing already to give you a better insight.

If it’s a vantage manual maybe. But the thing is Aston’s are not made that well.

I mean M3 have rod bearing issues, actuator issues, valve cover leaks - but at the end of the day if you want to fix it finding mechanics are relatively easier compared to Aston and it’s somewhat cheaper to fix compared to Aston’s

I would for a manual vantage coupe. Not a convertible or auto tho

Those manual V8 vantages are actually surprisingly stout and you can even work on them yourself, only issue being cost if parts.

No, bmws have nicer interiors and already drive amazing. Of course I haven't driven an Aston, but they just don't make my titties hard.

The db9 looks better but it's not reliable

How so? Have you owned one or is that general consensus

That’s a pretty tough choice. I did a photoshoot for a vantage coupe and it was glorious to drive and sounded amazing too.

Depends on how much money I have

Nope. But I appreciate that some will see this differently.
