Ashley, I don' think it has anything to do with a good 'un or a bad 'un - a 35 degree differential between oil and water temperatures just aint right once an engine is fully warmed up. How can you have such a big differential when the oil and water is flowing through the same block?

As for the Astons, I've had a DB4 and DB6 and the temp differential was approx 10 degrees when fully warmed up, which is correct. It's exactly the same for the DB5.

regards,
Kevin
