Lightweight V12VS wheels fitted - not easy to photograph against Tungsten on the crappy iPhone but I love the way they look.

Dark grey metallic, with window surrounds and strakes to follow (wrap)

love these wheels and car as I said on the facebook group!

The only traction to be found was on the straights in the slightly drier line (no standing water) so overtaking was a little challenging unless cars moved right over. Not a day to fully exploit 470bhp through the rear wheels!

However, at only £139 for the whole day I'm sure I'll be back there sometime next year. The owner of the GT4 set himself the target of driving every circuit in the UK a few of years ago and has completed that. Europe next ......... smile
Nice to hear of a few vantages going on track. Who did you book Cadwell through? £139 is great!

That's great value for a trackday Pete and brilliant that you are enjoying the car so much. I'd happily pay that for a limited 10 laps in the big girl and for the craic - really enjoyed Rockingham.

Next time put a GoPro on that Cayman - could have made a few quid with the mowing trip!

Went driving in the country with a few like minded mates. Clearly two automotive preferences among the group, but we had some fun

Fitted my new glass switches from Astonmartinbits https://www.astonmartinbits.com/models/5-V8-Vantag...

Took the opportunity to remove the radio screen and clean the inside, much clearer now.

Prime position for yesterday's drive in cinema at AM Bristol. Some awful weather spells, the staff did a mighty job of looking after everyone while getting soaked to the bone.

Johnny English Strikes Again , a great choice and some good X Pack action biggrin

That’s the reason why it makes sense to change those cabin air filters on a regular basis. Had them a little more than 4000 miles and they are realy dirty. Thanks to Richard Seidlitz aka Redpant‘s lol and his YouTube Channel. These DIY videos are spot on ! If you never had changed these cabin air filters before by yourself, it takes 30 minutes !

Cheers

Well I was looking to swap my Vanquish Carbon black 2016 for a Vanquish S 2017 but the price to change was £50K, the dealer should be on the stage as a comic.

Stick with what you've got - it's a great car in its own right.

There’s bugger all decent vanquish s cars about at the moment imo. The lower priced Bristol one (£120k) has disappeared and it was a low spec car, as was the Alexanders car at same money, less 2 seats. Both cars had been for sale for many months. Hold fire, much better stock at better prices will appear in the new year is my best guess.
