First spring drive

Took my MY 14 V8V out for the first time since last November.
Purchased it new in May of 15'-Volcano red/Obsidian leather/MT.
It has the standard suspension and I find it quite firm and perfect for the vehicle.
Although I have never driven a Vantage with the sports suspension, I can't imagine wanting anything other than the standard setup.
I don't track the car.
BTW, the Vantage is a wonderful car.

Good for you! Did you just let the car sit for half a year?? Wouldn't some fluids have settled or tires get deformed, not to mention the battery?

During the CT winters, my special cars are stored in my climate controlled garage.
Tires are inflated to 45 psi and a battery trickle charger does the rest.
Have been doing this for 30 years.
Never a problem.

Interesting, so all the fluids (oil, gas) are okay? I wonder how long you can store a car like that for..
