Aston Martin DB7

Not Just Any Old Car

Please note that no VAT is charged additionally to the prices stated below.

RADIUS ARM REPLACEMENT

£580 COUPE

£500 VOLANTE (no rear anti roll bar)

Rattles and clonks from the back end? Or simply mot failure. New radius arms and rear antiroll bar bushes should cure this. These parts really need changing every 5 years but are not hideously expensive!
FRONT SUSPENSION OVERHAUL

£250

Front tyre wear/rattles and clonks from the front of the car? Above price is for top wishbone bushes and front antiroll bar bushes which should sort the problem. Lower wishbone bushes, surprisingly, do not seem to be a problem but if required are more costly as the front road springs need to be removed first!
SUPERCHARGER OIL CHANGE

£55

The oil in your supercharger has probably never been topped up let alone changed (its not in the AM service schedule). See below – one container has oil that has done 110,000 miles and the other is brand new… guess which is which! Correct, the oil on the right shows how important it is to have the Supercharger oil changed at regular intervals.
SUPERCHARGER OIL
DB7 VOLANTE HOOD HYDRAULIC OVERHAUL

£70

…not mentioned in the service schedules but it is not a bad idea to clean the reservoir and filter, replacing the hydraulic oil with fresh, to reduce the possibility of problems in the future.
DASHBOARD RECOVER LABOUR (Only)

£510

Has your dash leather shrunk in the Sun? You are not alone, Ferraris and other exotica trimmed with natural materials suffer the same fate. There is no simple solution, the whole dash, down to footwell level has to come out of the car, go to a professional trimmer for stripping back and recovering with new hide. Trimming and hide costs are around £950 (depending on hide texture and colour). So all in, fitted, will probably be just over £1500, especially if some of the associated panels are recovered at the same time.
HANDBRAKE ALARM

£50

Fitting an audible alarm rather than that light on the dashboard that no one can see …. can easily be reverted to original at any point. Now fits all DB7’s. Can also fit beeper for more audible turn indicator too.
AUTOMATIC GEARBOX FOR 6 CYLINDER CARS

£2000 all inclusive

Having gearbox problems? The GM boxes dont seem to last as long as they should. To have a fresh, guaranteed, box fitted without the worry of escalating rebuild costs (whilst stocks last).
LATER, VENTED REAR BRAKES FOR PRE-AIRBAG CARS

£500

Convert your early rear brakes to later spec, bigger, vented, rear discs. Price includes bigger calipers, new brake hoses, discs and pads, all fitted. Back plates extra.
EXCHANGE BLOWER MOTORS

These motors often suffer from an electrical rather than mechanical failure, however, the relevant components are a part of the motor itself. The price includes the fitting of exchange blowers with all new electronic components. Other components for the blowers are becoming hard to obtain.
SEAT BACK DAMAGE ON DB7 VANTAGES

£250

Does the outer wing of your seat feel loose? Does it cause the end cover to come off? The likely cause is that the seat back is broken! To remove seat fabric, fit new back and resecure and refit seat fabric £250 per seat.
