Talking My First Aston!!!!

I'm so excited, I pulled the trigger on the 07 Vantage, 6speed manual, Black with black interior(this is my dream car!... now I'm living the dream ! lol). Overall the car runs good, power is intoxicating. I will be doing most of the care and feeding myself I can't wait for red pants site to get their webstore back online. Also has anyone used the quick jack car lift system on these cars? I use the BL-7000SLX to work on my cars. I look forward to many years of ownership of this fine automobile.

Congratulations. Make sure you have a look at the redpants site for the correct way to lift a car - lifting it wrong can lead to tears....

https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...firestone.html

I've done quite a bit of work on mine (thermostat, clutch, now tail-lights). Overall, it's the easiest car I've ever had to work on - everything is good quality, and substantial. If you like, I can send you a link for the service manual, and OBD diagnostic manual (for DB9, but same processes and codes).

Matt

Hey Matt,

I too am a new 07 Vantage owner. Would it be possible to send the manual my way as well? I will be doing most of the work on my car so will be visiting this forum regularly.
I have already taken advantage of Stuart's services at Velocity AP and reflashed my ECU, many more mods to go.

Thank you in advance and also congrats to Svx. It is an exciting time when you get your first dream Aston into the garage.


Rod
