Hi Grant

Also tried on Amazon.com and got the same response also saying Buy from the Kindle store.

Looks like hard copy is the only way to my UK address!

Hi Finlop,
You have raised an interesting question. Having investigated things further it appears Amazon restrict supply to certain African countries, in honesty I'm not sure why as the guide has Ghana ticked for delivery of the Aston Martin guide, so this an Amazon issue rather one of our making. The guide sells all over the world but yours is the first enquiry from Ghana, hence our learning curve!
I'm told people who want to use Amazon in Ghana use various work arounds, but I can't vouch for or recommend any so you are best searching for these yourself, although here is a link to a random example I found for you................... http://www.blogerian.com/no-kindle-restriction-afr...
I hope it helps.
Best Regards
Grant

Thanks Grant,

Will try. All flights out of Ghana now cancelled so I can't get back to UK anyway, ..................so as confined to quarters, need to read.

Your intimate knowledge of the Gaydons may answer a question I have. I plan to buy a Rapide...two young kids....did Aston ever make, even as a prototype, a manual?

Or have you heard of a conversion? I asked Mike at Bamford Rose, (who is probably the best specialist out there), but no reply. He is very busy.

To answer your question, the Rapide was never produced with a manual gearbox, 6 speed and later 8 speed automatic gearbox only.
I hope you'll be able to find a solution soon to read Grant's fantastic book!

Dear CSK (and Grant)

Thanks for the responses.

1) Managed to download using the link Grant sent and now enjoying the book.
2) Thanks for gearbox info.....no chance of retro fitting a manual then.

You'd have to ask Works at Newport Pagnell, I'm sure they could help... at a price. smile

Hi All
Just a quick one, for those that still wanted a printed version of the guide, we have found a few eleventh edition guides (printed in 2015, covering up to the 16MY, with the Vanquish on the front/back - they don't cover the new generation DB11/Vantage). They are seconds with glue or marks on the inside cover, but the main book is fine.

PM me if you want one and we can pop over a Paypal request to your email. They are £20 each including UK post and packing. We would rather stick to the UK if possible as international shipping problems is one reason why we went digital, but I can find a price for this if required.

Cheers smile
Salutations Grant!

Sent you an email on this. Fingers crossed.
