Hi HR, it is noted on the first right hand page, on the third edition the image on the page is the stunning overhead shot of the Cobalt Blue Vantage S
I hope you are enjoying the guide?
Are you working on the third revision of the guide, including the 2013 changes, Grant?

If so, I might have to get another copy of that.

Hi Damien, I'm hoping to get a PDF update out in the next month or so, this should update those that have the 2nd edition and also add details of the latest 12.5MY changes to the Vantage. It should go out to all who purchased the book through its own website, so you should get a copy FOC.

doh! banghead

In my defence, page 1 was stuck to the inside front cover (a little excess glue, before anyone asks smile)
Thanks Grant - brilliant book and a fascinating read. An absolute must for any prospective (or current) owner.

Just received my copy yesterday.

Great book Grant, especially since I am on the hunt for an Vantage at the moment and it's helping to decide which year to go for (I like the page with all the model year differences!). Very modest review of the car as well.

Thanks again

I've just joined the forum as I'm considering my first Aston and following the excellent reviews, I've also just ordered the book.

Merry Christmas

Do not buy this book! It is temptation on paper and has today caused me to buy the meteorite grey 2010 AMV8 from Stratstone in Tyne & Wear. I'll be collecting it on Saturday.

Seriously, a fantastic and insightful source of information.

Thanks very much

Jeremy she is an absolute stunner, many congratulations, I would love to know the spec as well.

You have also given me an idea, I know we already have a photo thread, but it would be great to have a few more photos of cars purchased with help from the guide, along with specs etc......... cool

Stratstone say she is a showroom car ie with every conceivable extra inc lightweight seats, N400 sills, Sports Pack. New she was £104,000 so many thanks to the first buyer for saying me over £40k over 4200 miles.

I had driven and considered a 997GTS, R8, GTR, M5 and each was fantastic. But, and having been fortunate to have owed a series of Porsches, it came down to the way the Aston made me feel.

Again, the Definitive Guide to AM was absolutely instrumental in this purchase.
