    Late 2002 Aston Martin Vanquish in excellent condition, all original 2nd owner car, in Glengarry Gold. Has Navigation, CD cassette, Parrot telephone bluetooth, and usual standard equipment. Runs well with smooth V12 and 6 speed sequential transmission (has not had upgrade). Recent past repairs include replacement of all 12 coil packs, new tires, replacement of both fuel pumps and full service about 1500 miles ago. Minor road chips for car this age but no accident history or major issues. Has most of original accessories like umbrella, star tac phone, battery tender, manual, etc. Fair weather car which has always been garaged and covered. About 17500 miles. Clear title. Asking $62,500 but might consider trade with 2016 or newer Corvette Z06.

    I'm not sure about the 575 but I did have a 2000 550 manual. The Vanquish feels a bit heavier and more solid and better on longer trips. The 550 felt a little more nimble but the Vanquish seems to have more low end torque and pulls a little longer. I guess you might say Vanquish is a little more muscle car like than the 550.

    Loving my Vanq. Best deal supercar out there right now. Exhaust note is awesome and even better with bypassed valves so there is no "around neighborhood" mode

    Rbwiii, you might want to try driving a Vanquish and DBS side by side. I did that before I bought mine and found the Vanquish had a much more solid and less generic feel. These are clearly subjective issues I know, but that is what owning these cars is all about. And Doug, I agree on the exhaust note, especially when you open up the throttle or the way it "barks" at you when you first start the car.

    Beautiful colour. Great car! GLWS. I have an '03 Daytona Nero. put 4000km on it last year and 6000 year before. Drives like a dream and no issues except an oil change that cost more than my first car LOL!!!

    Yes, oil changes are time consuming, especially if you change the filter. I have done all of mine. It is the labor not the parts for sure.

    Yes - only a $30 filter, case of Mobil 1 from Sam's Club, hand full of bolts to drop the bottom plate, then drain and fill just like any other car, but for some reason an Aston dealer like a Ferrari dealer think it's an $400-800+ event (only fools pay that for an oil change).

    I find getting to and removing the filter the main headache. I think there is only one position where you get about a 1/16" clearance to get it out after removing a wire harness bracket or two, of course with it upside down leaking oil.:rolleyes:

    IMO there will not be a better time to buy one..., in the next 5-10 years these prices will seem ridiculously cheap.

    Exactly. Just like a $40k 328 GTS 6 years ago...I passed on several pristine examples as my max price/willing to pay or offer was $35k. I'd pay $45 now for a good clean one - but no takers, it appears you need $60k to get anyone to budge for so-so examples.
