Was great to meet you when we were there. My girlfriend and I still get a kick out of telling that story. Seriously small world.

Never thought my small post would spawn friendships as well!

I'm glad you guys gave Jason a try and really glad that he came through for you. I've known him for a few years now and he's a fantastic guy and mechanic.

Last time i was in the shop he mentioned a drive to me as well and I would definitely love to join in. Count me in when we get scheduled!

Not that I need an excuse to drive the Vantage, but it's always cool to meet up with folks and go for a drive. Post on here when something is setup.

Just had the chance to go visit Jason's shop and spent a couple of hours with him talking cars and looking over my v8v. Such a nice guys and a true lover of cool cars that is happy to share his knowledge, I feel super lucky to have him close by!

Cheers,
Daryl

You're lucky to have a shop like that in your locale. Around Boston, it's the dealer and that's it.

Most places around here do not even want to touch an Aston. Much easier owning a Ferrari in that regards.

I initially took my 07 V8V to MCG for the first couple of years after I bought it. I was happy with their service, but it was expensive. Over the last couple years, I have been using Select Luxury (Marietta). I have been happy with the service, and the price is reasonable. Bryan is the shop manager, and (if I understand correctly) was previously head of service at MCG. Has anyone used both Pannell and Select Luxury? Curious how they compare. . . John

Some of you guys may have seen my thread regarding potential Aston Martin ownership and a nice white V8 Vantage for sale in NC that I am considering. I spotted this thread and figured that, if I wound up with an Aston, I'd certainly need a good tech! Reached out to Jason by email re: ownership and service issues and received a very prompt and helpful response from him. Always great to find qualified independent shops to work on our "special" cars. If I do become an Aston owner, Jason is the first guy I'll search out. Thanks for this very helpful information.

Some of you might have seen my recent post here about a 2013 Vantage V8 I am considering. Obviously, a big concern for me is locating a good independent shop to service the car - particularly when I live about 120 miles south of Atlanta. Not many competent Aston Martin techs in middle Georgia! I saw this thread and sent Jason an email on Friday, inquiring about ownership and service issues and his availability to help me with this car if I do decide to get into the AM world. He responded with a very helpful email, which I really appreciated. Nice to find competent, enthusiastic independent shops to work on our "special" cars. Thanks for this recommendation!

The guys up in Boston are cool also, they did my clutch for me when I lived in CT and stayed after hours to meet me on pickup after work. With that said Jason Pannell is top notch, he was super helpful just recently when I was doing a DIY oil change and needed a little help with a stripped Torx bolt. Jason totally saved the day!

They are a small dealership, selling only Aston Martin and Lotus. There are only two AM and Lotus dealers in New England. The Waltham, MA dealership are passionate about AM and keep a spotless shop. They do a lot of classic exotic service as well. I'd guess about 30% of their service business is Ferrari and the like.

My Rapide is at the Waltham dealership right now. I have been waiting to receive my Registration from the selling dealership in CA for almost 2 months. This has been a big ordeal that I will create a new thread on once it is complete. I traded in my Vantage for the Rapide and have had to keep the Vantage insured even though the dealership that sold me the Rapide has long sold my Vantage. I am fuming over how crocked the seller is (which happens to be a Lotus dealer).

Hi all,

New to the forum with a 2007 V8V Vert that I purchased a few months ago. I wanted to give a shout out to Jason for my recent annual service at his shop in Alpharetta. He was knowledgeable, honest, offered great recommendations, and above all, thorough and efficient. Thanks Jason

Scott

Thank you for the info, mindscape9, I am in Cumming - just up the road from Pannell. I have a Porsche 997 turbo and I have been thinking about the possibility of a DB9, but going down to MCG for service has been a bit of a turnoff. I think I'll drop in to see Pannell. This could be a tipping point. Also it's surprising to know that there are so many AM owners nearby.

I met with Jason on Tuesday of this week for an annual service and a few improvements to my '09 V8VR. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

.. and soon, keep an eye out for a snarly V8VR prowling Midtown

Can't tell you guys how happy it makes me that you are using Jason and finding him to be a quality alternative to the dealer. He has become a good friend of mine through our mutual love of the Aston marque, and it sounds like he is making friends of some of you as well.

I need to head up there to see him soon for my annual, new tires, and brakes.

I know he had thought about putting a drive together so when I am up there, I'll see if he has made any headway on that.
