Very strange that there are a few white Vantage / Mans trans options are for sale at the moment.
I was hunting 1.5 years for my baby.

When I was looking for a Vantage, I never ran into an S with a manual trans. Did not have "the book" at the time so I thought maybe there was just no such thing as a manual S

This what I would say, It is all about color. options, condition and price. Every one knows what is most important for themselves with a purchase this big.

UPDATE: Deal Done, Fly 'n' Drive set for December 29th.

Purchased a 2013 V8VS in White, Manual Trans, Stratus White, Premium Audio, 15K miles.....blah, blah, blah. I pick it up in Houston, TX on the 29th and I'll drive it back to Atlanta! Already got the satin black Niche Essen 20"s on order with a +40 offset on the rear and +35 on front. I saw with this setup/stance in my searching and just loved it.

Very excited, never thought I'd ever own an Aston Martin, let alone a relatively new(ish) one.

This forum has been incredible so far and I'm looking forward to giving back to it.

Congrats! You will enjoy it. I have satin black 20's on mine (meteorite silver) and it fits the wheel well great... a little over the width and i added mud flaps on the front

Thumbs up

Big congratulations! I completely understand your excitement over this car. Great to see another stratus white V8V, 6 speed car in Georgia. Let Jason Pannell check it over for you. Enjoy the ride!!

Congratulations!!! She sounds awesome!
Share some pictures!!!!

Texas seems to be a good source for white Aston purchases since I bought my Stratus white, mans trans, premium audio and 6k miles Vantage in Dallas back in 2016.

Yeah, that car was beautiful. Only reason i didn't buy it was because the 2013 V8VS was the same price as the 2010...(2013 has Premium Audio, more HP and all the model updates you get with a 2012+ car as compared to a 2010).

That said, I plan to buy the same wheels and body blackouts to make my car look like that 2010. it was very cool, and the blue leather was very nice too.

It's a great tranny. Congrats on the purchase!
