RickyG is on a distinguished road
Nice. I got the idea from this:



I believe the (previous?) owner of that car works at Aston Martin.

Goes with the orange accents of my interior too:

Traded my 2015 V12S Onyx Black with Black interior with Tamo Ash Ski Slope and yellow trim and brakes and a bronze grill for a 2017 V12S in Magnetic Silver with Sahara Tan interior at Ogara at Beverly HIlls. My 2015 V12S is still under factory warranty till July, has Xpel self healing full front clip and Cilajet Ceramic (Xpel and CilaJet done just over a year ago). Since I have an extended warranty, there are no issues and all services done. It should be at Ogara in a few weeks. This is a non-abused V12S with 13,200 miles on it - I've stored it winters and do not even drive it in the rain. If looking for a black on black it will be a safe buy.

Old and new car above (picts of new one from Ogara, as I do not have it yet)...

Great colour combo! It appears you have the metal mesh inserts on the hood - do you have any other pics of those? How do you like them compared to the carbon fibre ones?

Also, curious to hear your impressions on the final version of the ski slope with the capacitive buttons.

I ordered new glass buttons from Aston Martin Bits - from a looks part I prefer the second generation Ski Slope look and functions (I like having a radio that does not need to popup a screen and the layout). The metal mesh on the hood - not sure about that - it might look good on a silver car, but I always were fond of louvers. I'm transferring wheel spacers I had on the 15 V12S. I dont' have the car for a few weeks, but these are picts from the dealer.

new car looks great - congrats

what size spacers do you have & did you change out the wheel nuts or lengthen the wheel studs

I was considering 5mm front & back on mine

the pop up screen just for radio is a deal breaker for me... it is useless and ugly... when did the change occur?

Drove the Aston to my Aunt's house for our Seder. Showed off the engine to a cousin who's an engineer. Was digging the V12.

I traded our DB11 in on this Bentley Flying Spur. All of our cars only have two doors and only the Bentley GT has usable rear seats. Being in our 70s as are our friends it is hard to get in and out of the GT. So the Flying Spur with its rear doors will make taking another couple with us much easier. Hopefully it will be as good to us as our GT. I still have the V8Vantage and plan on keeping it as a permanent part of our collection.

i did but the back seats of the Rapide are a bit tight and being low like a Vantage or DB9 they would present a problem for some of our older friends. I really like the Rapide and they have a real nice one at Aston Martin DC.
