    I have run a 612 for the past 19months done over 18k in it, it does everything brilliantly. It is a bit big to manouvre around multistorey car parks though.

    Mine is just having the cambelts done at the moment, you can have a drive when I get it back if you like, ice and snow permitting.

    Not sure about the 612 - they always look very nice in darker colours though.

    Would be interested in your Vanquish experience - toyed with the idea of one before settling on looking for a 550.

    Vanquish is awesome

    Against
    relativly slow 0-60 about 4.7
    gears a bit clunky but can be smothed with slight lift
    service costs scary

    For

    nothing faster mid range of that age including 550
    great road presence
    discrete, you can leave it almost anyware
    what a noise!!!!
    only ever seen 5 of the other approx 300 cars that remained in the UK


    Your welcome to a drive anytime

    My vanquish is No 2 one of the 7 pre production development cars run by the factory for 3 years so has all the right parts fitted
