New dog leg owner

I've been looking at picking up a manual AM vantage, either V8 or V12, with a preference towards the v12.

I did drive a sport shirt v12v and actually enjoyed it. Not the smoothest tranny, but it was fast at speed and tbh I liked the fact that you had to lift a bit to get a good shift. The current double clutches are just too good if that makes sense. I digress....

Out of nowhere I see a low mileage 17 v12v s with the dog leg. Couldn't resist. Deposit placed. Going to see it Tuesday. Unless I'm disappointed it will be mine.

Anything special to look for?

Thanks to all and looking forward to meeting some of you.

This is my favorite Aston Martin and car to drive on a good back road. So rewarding once you bond with it.
Make sure you put it in sport mode and then hold the sport button to activate AM-Shift during your test drive.
Can't wait to see some photos!

If yours is a 2017, in the settings you can default Sport Mode ON! the best new feature ever!
