Took the car for a spin down the nearby dual carriageway. May not sound exciting but not been able to drive it for 8 months due to chemo effects. Great to be back in the fold. Just need to get back to a more spirited style. driving
Good for you, I sincerely wish you well.

Installed one of Clive's switches into the new V12. I'd like to say it took me 2 minutes, but it was more like 10 for which I blame my frozen fingers

But it was worth it smile

Took the winter cover off.

Nothing particularly remarkable about that.......

Got the winter cover back in its bag, now that’s remarkable!

Fitted new front pads (EBC red stuff) - old Pagids were still OK but too much dust.
Broke wear sensor end (it crumbled away, honest) - to be ordered & replaced shortly.


Cleaned & refitted front wheels.

Replaced pollen/cabin filters.


Replaced engine air filters.


Next on the list is replace the front tyres (originals from 2009), starting to crack.

Just got one of these to keep the Astons company...



LOTS of tech...wow! My wife absolutely loves the spaceship look inside, and so do I. It may have the same 25o HP motor as my Evoque and same basic trans, but it drives worlds better, especially the auto change down/up when almost coming to a stop. So far, two big thumbs up!

Did you at least drive one of your lovely Aston’s to the Land Rover dealership?
