My first Aston!

Hi All--I'm a long time observer of this forum and my first post. After over a year of looking for 'the one', I finally fulfilled my lifelong dream of owning one of these magnificent machines! Please welcome my 2012 Quantum silver V12V With 6,619 miles. I can't express how painful it is to have this baby sitting in my garage when the roads are so crappy given the 2-feet of snow we got last week. So much for my plans for an early spring in New England!

I've got a few small plans to make this car even more unique: swap the hood and trunk Aston badges from the stock black to green, same for the wheel center caps--something about the traditional green and how nice it will "pop" on this color. The red badges might look good too given the red calipers. Also going to vinyl wrap (carbon) the door sill plates to not only protect them but also match the carbon accents with the rest of the car. I already ordered custom brand plates from Signs by Seymour to have my name on them (Hand built in England for ...). Definitely a VelocityAP tune will be on tap after I drive the car a bit to get a good feel of the stock setup. I found a lightly used set of 100-cell VelocityAP high flow cats that will also go in with the tune.

Anyway, on with a few pics...Here's the arrival and unloading from the transport:





My girlfriend took a pic of me takin a pic...


The car was pretty dusty after coming off the transport; cleaning up and dusting in and out:


Here's what 5 cars in a 3-car garage looks like. This is just temporary as I'm selling the white Lexus this spring...But it works for the remainder of winter hibernation!




I'll be sure to post more pics once the weather clears and I can get some nice shots outside in the daylight. I'm so pumped to be a member of the privileged to own one of these amazing cars!

-Dan

Congratulations. Beautiful car. Really is a bit of a milestone when one purchases their first Aston. Your little one looks still small enough to fit in the back seats. Just tell her to repeat these 4 words - "Lets take dads car."

Wow, a beautiful V12V in Quantum is a helluva first Aston! I hope to join you guys one day

Btw, you gave me a great idea of how to fit five cars into a 3 car with only a single 4-post and short cars.

But PS - that S5/RS5 isn't that special to be up there
