    Default Aston Martin V8 Vantage

    hi folks

    well i couldnt resist and i have purchased the above! was just wonderring what my fellow F owners think of them any comments!


    it looks fab and sounds fab but believe it or not they are not quite in the same league as my 360 for build quality! (believe it or not )i find it quite fast aswell as i have been told that they are slow, underpowered etc etc ( mainly form porsche 991 owners )

    however just been on p heads and im surprised at how many F owners also have V8 Vantages

    anyway i normally run a 997 as my dailey driver and the Vantage has replaced that ! up to now im really pleased with it!!

    it could never replace my 360 though!

    Nice choice we have done a number of clients who have replaced their Porkers with these as daily runners I like the look of them a lot (then again I was always a sucker for Astons)

    Cheers

    I drive past the local AM dealer every day now and see a couple of V8s to/from usually. Very nice cars, hope the elctrical niggles which seem to be afflicting all the mags' cars don't affect you.

    Very nice indeed and they are just so much more special than the 997 which in my opinion is a fabulous car but just far too clinical for its own good!

    Look forward to some pictures soon!

    Enjoy it!

    Have driven one on the track - nice car but not as quick as a 360.

    Try taking the exhaust fuse out - sounds good then.

    thanks for the positive response

    the colour is meteorite silver ( really a dark grey )

    i have removed the fuse aswell it sounds fab

    il try post pics but im not very good with my comp! so il probably leave it to Dave Zymol as he will be up here soon!

    but yes i guess your right that it is so much more special that a 997 ( even tho the 997 is a superb car )

    anyway thanks for your comments
