    Hi all,

    So it looks like my car will be shipped here in the next week or so. It is a 2013. But I was wondering if anyone knew of another online forums like Ferrarichat, but for Astons. I look at 6speedonline every so often, but didnt know if there was a better one to check out.

    Also seeing as how it is a 2013 it has the crystal keys, i looked and the official AM leather pouches are 100+, seems silly. Any suggestions on that?

    Once the car gets here I will share some pictures.

    Thanks!

    I used to have a 2007 V8 Vantage Roadster and a 2009 DBS.

    AMOC is a great site, very good information about all the models from the owners and also watched over by AM so they hear the complaints too.

    When I had the DBS, it came with a leather pouch for the crystal key so you should inquire about it. The second key was a plastic valet key, really cheap looking.

    Congrats! They are beautiful elegant cars, I miss my 6 speed DBS

    I have an '07 V8V for a few years now and I've found 6speedonline and Pistonheads the most useful. I'm an AMOC member but don't find their message boards very helpful.

    I just got back in the AM game as well! Congrats on your coming Vantage. I just picked up my 4th Aston - 2011 DBS. Wish there were better forums but all have been mentioned above. I usually frequent 6speedonline. I’ll look at AMOC again. Cheers!

    Hi! Sorry for the delay. As the usual goes work went nuts so I had no time. But once I get some better pics I will post up.

    But the details are, 2013 Vantage SP10 6 speed manual with red stitching, carbon fiber side strikes, waterfall, gear shift surround, clear taillights inserts carbon, with the Vantage S carbon front and rear bumpers parts.

    Overall i am fairly new to the AM game, have wanted one FOREVER, but i have need seen one speck like this.

    Once i get some pics that do it justice i will post up. So far it want 19 miles then i pulled fuse 15, I LOVE THIS CAR!!!

    Also forgot carbon fiber side mirrors and the arm rest of the doors.

    Then waterfall and gear shift surround are dry carbon also. Looks perfect!

    One of the best “forums” IMO for the Vantage is the V8/V12 Vantage owners group on Facebook. I also use 6speedonline and pistonheads as well. Another great site for parts and info is Redpants.lol I know it’s a weird sounding URL but that’s correct. Lots of DIY info, OEM and aftermarket parts and great articles. You’re going to love the car. Mine is a 2011 V8S that I daily drive. So much fun Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login Image Unavailable, Please Login

    I’d be hesitant to park close next to that Silverado.... unless it’s yours. :)

    Thanks! Yeah I have read as much as I can from Redpants. Can you invite me or do you know the name of the FB group. I have seen some but they are out of the country when i search.

    Also I LOVE your car! I have seen it on Instagram and 6speed. Beautiful!

    I have driven the V8VS for a few weeks now and man do i LOVE it! More to come!

    Thank you!

    The FB group name is “Aston Martin V8/V12 Vantage Owners Group.” I could also send you an invite for it but I don’t know your Facebook page or email.

    If you can’t find it let me know.
