    Hi Karl, Do you have a piano black center console piece that is just forward of the arm rest for a 2015 Vantage S?

    Hi Karl. Was wondering if you ever ordered a carbon front splitter from Oya Carbon for your old Vantage. Saw a few old posts of yours on Pistonheads and since we are both in the US I figured I'd ask for your thoughts and opinions on it. Thanks buddy.

    Hi KarlFranz,
    You seem to be the expert on taillight replacement. I added a post about it and would love your insights if you are able to share. Thanks!

    Karl,
    It is Ron Avery in Los Angeles. Do you still have your sport exhaust from your old Vantage? I have some questions about how it works ect.
    Can you call me on my cell?
    818-205-4913
    Thanks,
    Ron

    Hi Karlfranz, did you sell your sports exhaust?

    So, what it comes down to is this: With the only major difference being the gearbox, what will I experience with both of them? This car will be a DD that will do a route of Santa Monica, Hollywood, Bev Hills and the studios. Canyons on the weekends.

    I know that there will always be something newer and better. I am not a race car driver/reviewer. I have never owned a double-clutch, so I have no frame of reference. All my exotics have been 6 on the floor. Part #2 to follow.

    Is the 6 Auto really laggy, or is there just a learning curve? Will it handle L.A. traffic (I fortunately do not have to drive at rush hour)? Will I be happy with it, having no frame of reference?

    Or, is the 8 speed box that much better as to change the parameters of the car and experience?

    I need a new "statement" car in the near-term. I found a DEEPLY discounted '14 Volante that would provide the colors and spec that I would order on a new one. I'm not thrilled with the avails on the '15's that are available on the lots nationwide; some I could be happy with, and the combos are nice, but they are not "unique" for this kind of money. I don't really want to wait to order and I would only be "OK" with the 15's that are available.

    So, what it comes down to is this: With the only major difference being the gearbox, what will I experience with both of them? This car will be a DD that will do a route of Santa Monica, Hollywood, Bev Hills and the studios. Canyons on the weekends. Part 3..

    Hi KF-

    I have read all of your posts and your responses on the AM forum. First, I give you a ton of credit for being so gracious with your time and your easy temperament in your responses. As I have chosen you as my AM Guru, I would like to ask for your kind thoughts and advice on the following:

    I was originally looking for a DBS, but stumbled upon the great pricing on the '14 Vanquish and love the look. Having read some pretty negative reviews of the 6-speed auto box, I started looking at the '15's and their ZF box, which seems to get rave reviews.
