    yeah .. I agree they now start to stick out, with the clear tail lights..

    Another 'Thanks for sharing' the cost quotes - they are consistent with the receipts for my DB9 - which was $6,500 for a clutch.
    Enjoy!

    More pics?

    Let’s get more photos out from my visit to Autosport.

    Alloro Green vantage GT. Great color. Not sure if the stripes on all GT’s are vinyl stickers or if some are paint. This one was a sticker.

    The stripes on the v12s are painted under clear coat.

    The green one is a DB4 Series 2. IMO, the prettiest with cathedral tail lights, egg crate grill, and bonnet scoop. .

    Sorry I have been so busy with travel for work this year.

    Been a bit burned out...

    I can say the vantage is great. Been way over 100 in AZ this summer so it has also not been out as much.

    Took my wife out to dinner and some shopping the other day in it though.

    Lots of good times. Gets as many looks as the F-cars.

    Glad to see you're enjoying yours! I just bought one and after a few hours I realized it's my favorite out of everything I've had so far. I wasn't expecting it to be so sporty, I thought it would be way softer and docile but it's not.

    Congrats. Let’s see a photo and get the specs. What did you choose and what does it need? :D

    Happy to see you posting again about your AM Vantage experience Robb!! I continue to research the Vantage and it really does seem to be a lot of automobile for the money.

    Here's mine. It's a 2007 six-speed. Has VelocityAP dual-disc clutch, VAP lightweight flywheel, VAP Stainless tubular headers, VAP flash tune, RSC 200-cell cats, RSC sport muffler, H&R springs, DBS shift knob, custom stainless steel HVAC/radio/nav knobs, custom crystal round button switches, Dension iPod integration. About 15k miles. I've had it for about 2 years now. Fantastic car, one of my favorites.

    Any videos of it? I heard they're overly loud with headers...

    It's loud but not overly loud. It's not as loud as a Huaracan Performante or many other Italian exotics. I have a video but it's 30 MB and I don't know how to make it less than 5 MB so I can post it here.

    The headers didn't really make it any louder than having the 200 cell cats and race-box exhaust.
