That's the way it was intended.
In any case, the blatant BMW product placement in the movies was a bit irritating (to me anyway).
Bond is a real British icon, as is the Aston. (Whoever it's owned by, they are still made by the same people). So (my 2 cents as you would say) I thinks it's a good thing.
