Not sure if that was mentioned but

03-11 Mazda RX8 Cabin Air Filter is identical to my 09 Vantage Coupe for less than $20 cdn :-)

Also I decided to replace the tires on the car as they started to show sign of aging (cracks in thread), I decided to go with

Continental
Extremecontact DW
245/40R19 Front
285/35R19 Rear

I am running the exact tire and size on my 2014 BMW 328 and love the lower noise level and grippe compare to the BMW OEM Bridgestone tire. Don't plan on tracking the car so I didn't see the need for PSS and by the way these tires are lighter than both the Potenza and PSS if someone cares about that.

Great info. Thanks ZVEZ for the thread & telum01 for maintaining it. The PS reservoir in my 06 AM vantage v8 looks like the same one in my BMW e46's.

I have a question though about downloading the docs from Aston Martin tech info. I'm going to purchase a subscription but I'm unsure if I need 24hrs or longer to download all the files? Does it limit you to one file at a time? Has anyone used an app so they can automate the download process and recreate the directory structure?

Just not sure what to expect?

sdcruiser is an unknown quantity at this point
Indeed while some of these are legit concerns due to the exotic cost of a new AM, most high end cars have similar issues. Still, I would not buy a used AM without the extended warranty! Based on what I've read, having a 2 year warranty helps offset unexpected costs. One guy had 5-10k in repairs his first year on his 2006 AM V8V and the warranty paid for it.

Here are some documents attached on the annual maintenance and what the extended warranty covers.

Nice catch, thanks! Unfortunately, AM of San Diego wants way too much for their cars and rejected my offer. So will keep looking!

Early in this thread it asked for folk to add OE cross reference data to this thread. I'm working on putting a list of things I discover as I do PM or mods on my own car. Given the extraordinary number of OE suppliers Aston Martin use it is mind boggling.

Look at the Rapide for example - every supplier listed below is outside the UK.

I'm not a mod anymore and my telum01 account doesn't have mod status anymore, so I can't edit anything. I do appreciate this, though!!

I know, but I found it ironic you had posted that but are currently left off of the list yourself. You absolutely belong on that list
