Over the years of maintaining and owning DB7s, I’ve built up a knowledge and catalogue of original parts at OEM prices, and re-manufactured parts where they are no longer available from AML (Aston Martin Lagonda) or their original suppliers (e.g. Ford, Jaguar, Mazda, etc.) Here are some of the regularly asked for:
No VAT is charged additionally to the prices stated below.
PRE AIR-BAG EXHAUST PIPES AND SILENCERS
£624 plus carriage.
Pre air bag overaxle pipes and rear silencers/mufflers, to original pattern in high quality Stainless Steel and will fit the original tail trims if still serviceable, otherwise new chrome tips can be provided at £30 each.
PRE AIR-BAG ‘STRAIGHT THROUGH’ EXHAUST PIPES
£462 plus carriage.
Pre air bag overaxle pipes with straight through rear pipes, just a VERY slight increase in sound level but NOT loud! Same applies with tail trims as with the mufflers above.
Brand new, not refurbished, will fit directly to pre-airbag car RHS, so no need to update the ECU. Can adapt to RHS and to later cars using your original motor (providing that the motor is ok/servicable) and at no extra charge.
TONNEAU SIDE SECURING BLADES FOR ALL DB7 & VOLANTES
As per pic, the originals break with age! The back two are different and seem to be fit for purpose, so have had the side blades made of a tougher plastic yet certainly no thicker than the originals.
New are black and need to be riveted in place of originals by a good DIYer, or a trim shop.
FRONT SUSPENSION BUMP STOP SPACES FOR ALL DB7s (except GTs which are thinner).
Not a wearing part you may say BUT originals are alloy in a water and steel environment and are crumbling fast! Bump stops themselves ARE a wearing part and bolt THROUGH the spacer. Given the corrosion mentioned above, if the spacer has not fallen apart, there will definitely be little chance of the old bump stop bolts coming out of the old spacer!. New alloy ones still available from AML at £31 plus but will soon be NLA. The black ones shown are as tough and light as the originals but will not corrode so should last as long as any suspension component and ALWAYS be detachable from the bump stops.
INTERCOOLER CHARGE AIR COOLER REBUILDS AVAILABLE
£1000 exchanged for your old unit
These units are not available from AML and indeed the division of IMI Marston who originally built the intercoolers no longer exists, but we have access to their jig. The one shown is a good unit from an airbag i6 and is available for sale on an exchange basis for £800. Exchanged units will then have the internal radiator replaced with a new matrix and will be available for £1000.
Possibly available through AML but at a price not proportional to the value of the car. Rebuilt units with new bearings and re teflon-coated rotors will be available, service exchange, probably just over £3000, as above, this is still work in progress.
ANTI-TRAMP FRAME FOR ALL DB7 VANTAGES
Price £750 – less than 1/2 of AML’s mild steel price!
Have been out of stock for some time, so have now moved to re-fabrication of them in Stainless Steel… no need to paint, powder coat or underseal! These are a work of art, shame they are underneath the car!
A/C COMPRESSOR OUTPUT PIPE & HIGH PRESSURE PORT
These are now no longer available from Jaguar (their p/n was MHE7340BA) and are £620+ from AML, so have been specially re-fabricated to original spec. The pipe connects to the back of the compressor and goes up, past the alternator, to the input side of the condensor, on ALL 6 cylinder DB7s.
HUB CAP LOCKING BOLTS FOR i6 DB7 (set of 4)
Original locking bolts used a whole set of combinations of 3 pin layout, so giving a fair degree of individuality/security. Current AML stock has 3 pins equidistant, so one key fits all! Another disadvantage is that, being steel, all (past and present) rust, so look unsightly and seize in alloy wheels. The Stainless Steel ones offered here will, keep their finish, not accumulate road dirt and not seize in the threading into the roadwheel.
There should also be a “Celebration” engraved set coming out later this year (for 25yrs of DB7) but the price is not settled yet.
