    1. The price: pretty cheap for an Aston. It's been dropped by about $7.000, actually, compared to the older version. There is absolutely no reason to complain about the price (and the "gas guzzler tax" is obviously not Aston Martin's fault, so harping on it in a review of the car is just idiotic).

    2. The automated gearbox: according to all other reviewers (who aren't trying to make this about themselves), this new seven speed Sportshift II transmission is much better than the old ones. Also, it's still optional, you really don't have to buy it, you can just stick with the manual gearbox which is flawless.

    3. The tech "interface": whatever.
