Hello folks I just purchased my new 2021 Vantage Manual today. Dont get it until August 10th via transport. I"m coming from a manual Audi R8 V10 so it will be interesting to see.
The new front-end grill is AWESOME, I love it. The previous grill was FUGLY and looked to me like a Cow Catcher. Good on Ya’.
Beautiful car. The airbag lights come on in my 2010 DBS (and the 2007 Vantage I had before the DBS) when the seats are back too far. The pressure of the back of the seats pushing up against the rear bulkhead triggers the sensor. I am guessing you have the same problem. Just move the seats forward so they are no longer pushing up against anything. My manual Vantage also whined a little in lower gears, especially when cold. It did not affect performance and I drove it for 80,000 miles before changing out the clutch (I got lucky with that mileage!). .Well so far I've powder coated the wheels and love the new look but I'm a little disappointed that in only 200miles I have an Airbag light on, my passenger door is rubbing on the door sill, scratching the paint and my gas cap lock is broken. I also am hearing a slight wining sound from the transmission. Its a manual and it sound like a throw out bearing. Going to the dealer tomorrow, Fingers crossed View attachment 1825 .
