Smile Looking for a V8 Vantage Coupe avoid a 2006 ??

I know the 2006 has less power but that's fine I want a comfortable sporty GT car with a manual transmission. We are keeping our 2006 911 coupe for the track & all and out sporty driving

I read that 06 cars have issues with the interior leather shrinkage - not a deal breaker for me . I am only concerned w major mechanical issues and wonder if it is safer to buy something other than a 2006 car ( I believe the first year of production )

Any advice would be greatly appreciated
. .
Thank you !

Default 06 0r Later?

Hi there Russ. I have recently purchased a 2007 V8 Vantage and, I must say, I'm ecstatic.
I looked at a few '06 cars and decided not to go with the first model run - always a safe choice in my view.
Many had trim falling off. Only a minor thing, but enough to put me off. I also realised later that the seats were changed in '07 and later models.
All else being equal, go for 2007 and later. You will not be disappointed!
