Gents, after some opinions here. Current model Vantage, is the manual a PITA to drive? I see a lot of manuals for sale with very low k's, so can only assume they are too engaging for city driving (like the old Ferrari's). Interested to hear your thoughts.

Bah, people are becoming soft. :p

FWIW I drove the manual Vantage and the sequential DBS, I hated the sequential - such laggy gearshifts just took all the sport out of the already kinda soft car.

I had a manual Vantage for about 3 years (recently got rid of it). The manual is a pleasure to drive. I would say however that the Astons tend to have a relatively weak clutch though. If (like me) you like to get up it from time to time I would consider changing clutches at some stage in the near fututre. Gearbox is reasonably good (not fantastic) but still a great car to drive both city and highway. Enough torque to not have to worry about excesive gear changes anyway.  Hope this helps.
