    What a HUGE difference the glass switches make! They look like they belong in an Aston, to me.

    Out for a quick blast for a food out tonight. Weather in AZ is perfect. This car is an absolute blast to drive. It sounds amazing with the new exhaust components. Simply a modern “animal.”

    Dropping gears and passing brings smiles ear to ear.

    Dropped into the authorized dealer yesterday to get the lights switched back to normal - Aston of Scottsdale. The dealer in trying to turn on the daylight running lights months ago had switched the car to “Canadian” so all lights ran all the time... that’s not what I wanted.

    It is not possible on the vantage to only switch on the front led’s... all the lights are connected.

    So that is an opportunity lost. You’d have to run parking lights during the day if you like the led’s. But then the taillights will also be on. I didn’t want all my lights on during the day.

    I also asked the dealer to raise the front headlights because they seemed quite low and cut off. They said because the car had the optional auto-leveling lights, it was not possible. They did wash the car though so that was nice for my time.

    So today I went back over to the independent shop...

    They were able to adjust the lighting carriage thru the fender liner to be higher up so that the lights will project further and higher.

    So kudos to the Indy shop - my preferred place to be. They also adjusted my rear clear tail light which was a little off alignment so it was flush with the tail. (Shown fixed.)

    No charges. Nice.

    Another great day of driving. Great car!

    I had a set of glass switches made by Bamford Rose in England for my 2007. The glass switches weren't an option on the early cars so they have to be custom made to have the correct graphics for the year and the functions. I also had a guy in England make solid stainless steel HVAC, radio, and nav buttons, and I also replaced the boring standard shift knob with a stainless steel knob from a V12 Vantage or DBS. Those changes really add some great details to the interior.
