Good luck choosing and let us know how you get on.

Cheers,

Unfortunately no vanquish's at this price point, very early vantages or db9s and db7s, add another 75k or so for a vanquish.
Add 3500 to 4000 quid for a clutch plus 5k for replacing suspension for some of the early cars.

Edinburgh is heading for low emissions restrictions: https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.u ... nburghlez/

Electric might be the way to go if lots of city-driving.

I'd avoid Diesel though.
