I am new to this forum but have been looking around and really like the Vantage. I could not affor a brand new one but in time it is possible I might get srious about an 08 or 09 V8 Vantage. What long term cost amounts would i be looking at and what are the major issues to be aware of. Im assuming clutch replacement would be on this list. How much? I have done much research on the Gallardos and the money that one has to spend on a Lambo would be to great of a concern to actually be able to enjoy it. Any figures, tips, you can give me would be much appreciated.

It should not be as bad as a Gallardo and similar to a Ferrari 430. Plan on GBP 2-3k per year and have a GBP 5k reserve in the bank for any major negative surprises and you should be OK.

Agreed with Boxer. The V8 Aston isn't too bad, it's the V12 cars that'll cost you.

Same goes with the Lambo's. The Gallardo isn't nearly as expensive to own as the Murcielago.

I honestly would have to say that over the long term the final costs of ownership between the Vantage and Gallardo will be similar.

I have a 07 Vantage roadster. Spent $1400.00 last Jan for the routine check up, oil change etc. I had a convertible top computer go out this summer but that was taken care of under warranty. Mine is a daily driver, I have 29,000 miles, i have the paddle automatic and have had no issues with anything else.;)
