And so it’s done!
Many thanks for all of the excellent advice and expertise. It was definitely not an easy choice but I had an excellent experience with the AM dealer and how they treated me during the entire experience. Shows that sometimes it goes beyond the features of the car that can lead to purchase preference.
Will give all an update after a week - this is a bit of mid life crisis and COVID-19 cabin fever wrapped into one
Cheers and stay healthy and safe,

It does have a different look than cars here in Germany. But not too “out there” and certainly enjoy the elegance. Cheers Peter
They make the best looking cars imo. I had the Rapide before but had to let go due to dealerships are too far away so very inconvenient. Congrats!
Definitely one of my favorite iconic designs...
This and the Porsche have kept many of the design cues over their history - which I love in watches as well as with cars. I have been really lucky that the AM dealer is nearby and oddly on the way to McDonalds, which I visit whenever my kids want a treat....
And definitely comments will come. Oddly enough I bought this car without a test drive and a bit of a whim, but experience has been incredible and the car is much more easy to drive than other sports cars I’ve had a chance to drive. Appreciate it, Peter ...
Thank you M4!
Very kind comments and I agree. Different look than others but one I admire quite much, Cheers, Peter
Wow! Thank you so much!
Your posts as well with your AM also provided me inspiration to take the leap. It’s a good type of different from other sports marques. Hoping that the car proves me wrong on the reliability stories. Setting up the basics in the car was very easy as I am ...
Thanks for the note
Appreciate the kind words. Living in Germany has been a real good experience - and looking forward to testing the car on the autobahn! Cheers Peter
Thanks - I do feel like I'm in a dream state...
Quarantines around the world, toilet paper shortages, and working virtually from home. What interesting times we live in... In any case, I'm hoping this car will be a good escape from the challenges - and one day to do a tour across Europe. In the meantim...
No bad choices possible!
Just not easy choices between the Porsche and the AM. Funny enough, I considered getting the Porsche a while ago once moving to Germany, but didn't do so because of a fear my wife wouldn't be happy with the car. Now she's thrilled and is looking at her ca...
Ha good point!
And maybe the roads will be less occupied as well. Maybe another good opportunity to drive the car fearlessly and make it a daily driver instead of just weekend car. Cheers, Peter
Love the Vantage S...
I did get the extended service and maintenance and warranty package to hopefully limit some costs, but am expecting certainly some events. I guess after dealing with watch servicing over many years I am getting used to it! Cheers Peter
Trying to find a respite away from the world and live KCCO Peter
I think I’m too busy looking at it!
Appreciate the kind feedback - and totally agree on your comments. Maybe there is a seductive elegance that’s special about the design and coloring combination of this AM which blends a more vintage aesthetic. Many thanks for the kind words, cheers, and s...
Ha ha ha!
I noticed that in Germany of the ability to get “vanity” license plates - where you can choose some of the characters. No surprise, I did take advantage of this (much to the behest of the dealer) and so there may be some Bond themes underneath Cheers, Pet...
I’m enjoying the color combination as a “starter” into AM. I’ve seen some incredible versions including their classic green, but will probably wait to take that next step Cheers, Peter
Very very nice.
A friend owned one for a number of years, a really understated car with a fantastically appealing design. Never in your face. Which is what I love about it.
Thank you Jay!
Appreciate the note. The brand definitely has a bit of understated luxury not so far from their partner in the watch world - JLC. I'm hoping they come up with a new amvox with the RF remote for future models Cheers Peter
Congratulations to it
A spectacular car. The Porsche of your choice is also a dream car but this one is way more spectacular and a superb GT.
Thanks for the kind note and appreciate the true GT nature of this AM. Maybe one day I will go back to the Porsche but not in the near term! Funny enough I noticed a neighbor recently driving their new Targa so I’m thankful there are (at this moment) a li...
Beautiful car and understated Porsche!
Admittedly I wish my children are old enough to go to university so I can look at 2 seaters Definitely one of the reasons I stuck with the AM’s 2 2 format, albeit not a really spacious back seat. One day soon! Cheers , Peter
It’s a great car
And driving one in Germany makes it extra special against all Porsche’s hahah
Yes - it’s funny in Germany...
Porsche is (not surprisingly) a popular brand and one frequently sees many of the LE models, and certainly more than a fair share of Targas. I definitely see how nice it would be to be part of the “club” and I imagine resale and maintenance as such would ...
I like the AM a lot
And The Metherlands is just like Germany. Out here in Dubai though it’s two brands only Porsche and Mercedes. I used to drive a Panamera but switched to Mercedes. We’ve now got 3 of them S Class GLE SL The SL is a vintage one from 76
