Blimey that looks great; will be ordering.

On the downside, on the homepage I can't believe how good that red Aston looks with the clear back light clusters...looks like that link may have just cost me more than £19.99...

I wish it well, as you can never have too many books on the marque and I'll definantly buy a copy....

...But if those pdf's are representative of the book then someone should have proof-read it first. Sorry, but in some places it doesnt make sense, others its incorrect and there are lots of exclamation marks.

Thanks for the support, very much appreciated. Cheers also to PH's owners and Rick for their input.
Will, I do like my exclamation marks (!) but the book was professionally proof read and is packed full with accurate information on all aspects of the latest range of Aston Martins, which will be of interest to fellow owners and help others join our exclusive club.

Edited to add we are now on the 5th edition of the guide , I have left the original information at the head of the page as the early comments all refer to the 1st edition of the book. With each new edition we have listened to feedback in order to further improve the guide, while all the data and model information has been updated, enhanced and expanded. In case you don't want to look through this long thread here are summary details on the latest edition - this is the new front cover from the 5th edition published November 2012.

It has increased in size to 274 pages and expanded to include comprehensive details on the recently launched new models and 2013 model year information - plus many additions and tweaks throughout.The books website is the same as before www.astonmartinreview.co.uk

Will the book be available as PDF for my iPad, I'm a gadget man and don't like to carry around physical books, newspapers and mags anymore.
I don't see a link anywhere?

Very, very impressed Grant, many sincere congratulations on a labour of love. So much detail involved.

clapclapclap

My only criticism would be that you are too modest. It would have been nice and justified to see your name on the cover as recognition of being the author of what I am sure will be a must buy for modern Aston owners.

Going straight in my suitcase for holiday reading to remind me what I am leaving behind.

Well done, you may now have a well deserved rest.

I would recommend this book to anyone on here contemplating a Gaydon Aston.
