how is 3 stalks confusing when one of them in the way back is for your steering wheel adjustments, like you're literally never going to use that while driving,

the other is for cruise control which again, you're probably not using much, and the turn signal... yeah use that... its not difficult.

The only thing I find weird was that the wiper blade controls and turn signals are on the same stalk, which isn't all that common, you usually have another stalk on the right side for the wipers. Maybe they think people aren't going to drive the car in the rain lol, but it also makes sense to have the most commonly used things on the same stalk as well

British quirkiness though, gotta love it

Actually, the wiper/blinker/cruise stalk may be one of the most common in all of automobile-dom. GM used it on all of their cars throughout the better part of 3 decades. They even metalized them for the fancy cars!

Don't think this was posted. But the new Vantage is one of Clarkson's best cars for 2018.

His review in Sunday Times about the new Vantage deserves a read as well.

With many on here *****ing about the new Vantage styling, I got a chuckle out of the highlighted post.

I saw the GT episode...I think they let little Richard do the segment instead of Jeremy because he likely doesn't like the last generation AMG aspects...

And that would be a great reason to ignore The Grand Tour's lap times...

Golfpunks is an unknown quantity at this point
Just an FYI.. If anyone is planning on upgrading or getting the new vantage.. A very common problem in most if not all of the new models make a whining noise coming from the differential.. 65-75 mph is when you hear it at its loudest.. Unfortunately that's the speed we are cruising the most often.. This has been an issue since day one. I even highly advised other members to not get one and after an extensive test drive, they moved forward. Well guess what after some miles it's whining.. I would really recommend staying away from this vehicle until aston martin does something about it..

It's just whining because it wants to go faster. Try reverse psychology.
