    Condensation in headlight

    This is on my to-do list, but keeps getting pushed down as I get tied up with other car projects. It's not an easy fix unless you pay someone to do it (around $2K from what I remember of some guy that does it), or fork out $15K to Lambo for new units. Tedious work, but that glass is pretty strong stuff, so unless you do something really stupid, it won't break.
  3. Are these wheels still for sale?
  4. I think Blaze bought it

    Any LP640 with good history for sale?

    I do not understand what is going on with your car. At $299, even with 30K miles, it should have sold a long time ago. Especially with a new clutch 3K miles ago. Is it because you have the body kit on there? What if you returned it back to a stock LP640, sold the body kit separately for $10K , and then raised the price to $320? I bet it would sell then.

    Will I regret this in the morning?

    A big part of regret for selling cars depends on what happens to the values in the future. How many people do you know that can tell a story of a car that they regret selling because the values went through the roof. So it's hard to say at this point if you will or not.
  7. I had the light come on recently, and an independent here in Houston with the "Galileo" system was able to turn the airbag light off. So you don't need the official system to do that.

    Drop in door speaker replacement?

    Thanks! The new speaker is an inch taller and still fits fine, so there’s some extra room. It’s heavier too, but didn’t change the door opening on it’s own at all since the location is so close to the door hinge.

    Drop in door speaker replacement?

    Took the old speaker to Best Buy to match it up physically to other 6.5” speakers. Ended up with the S-S65 ALPINE - 6-1/2" 2-WAY COAXIAL pair for $90. Dropped right in with no mods and kept the stock look. I had to make my own connectors which was easy. Sounds just as good to me, so I am happy.
  10. That’s good to hear that I’ve already made 50% on my Hercules investment! I kept the speedlines for originality so I can sell the Hercules separately when the time comes. Making good returns on my Esprit OZ Nova wheels too. They are in the same price range as the Hercules now, and I got them for around $2k 5 years ago.
  11. I don't know much about car stereos, and my ears aren't finely tuned enough to want to do the big stereo upgrade. But my driver door speaker has started falling apart -- the rubber diaphragm ring around the speaker has disintegrated. The best option for me would be to buy upgraded speakers that drop right in using the factory connector and fitting under the factory speaker cover. Does something like that exist? And if so, where could I find a set? The factory speakers list for $600 on lambo stuff, and I am sure $30 speakers at Walmart would be an upgrade over those. Thanks in advance!

    do you know this car?

    If you think I said that car is worth 140 + 20, then you're more f*cking nuts than the seller. Where the hell did you get that??

    That's pretty wild that if the seats were redone that they already look that old. That's concerning. They don't look too bad in the pics, and at least the side bolsters look like factory stitching. The door not aligning is also concerning as it may or may not be a simple realignment of the hinge, and may be something bent that isn't easy to fix. The tires, door struts, rough paint, broken climate control door are all minor. Most of these cars are sold with tires that have plenty of tread, but are well past their "use by" date, so replacing tires is often job 1. The fronts wear faster, but maybe there's an alignment issue too. 97% of all Murci's need new door struts. I replaced mine, which makes mine one of the very few that the doors go up on their own. Everyone else is pushing them up. If the paint match looks ok, and the paint was laid down properly, a simple wet sand and polish should take care of the roughness. The rollback thing unfortunately happens a lot with super cars, but it can be very hard to tell that excessive wear is a sign of a rollback as opposed to owners that are hard on the cars. But if it was easy to tell, these thugs wouldn't be rolling them back so much. Did you get any verifiable info on what caused the car to be salvaged, such as pics or insurance / body shop documents? That's the biggest thing that is needed for anyone to make a decision on this car.

    Funky door lock/unlock issues

    I have seen that before. Disconnecting the battery and reconnecting it with the quick disconnect in the engine bay has resolved it.

    No crashed pics come up on google with the VIN. That's probably a good sign. What does the carfax say is the reason for the Salvaged title?
