    Will I regret this in the morning?

    I dont have this on a reliable source, but rumor floating around in this part of the country is that you got a low mileage (heard sub teens, aka below 13k) miles roadster in Monterey Blue. Someone said original sticker was a $460k+ car?!? Again, likely hearsay, but if so....CONGRATULATIONS!! Side note: where the fcuk is my car? Calling the cops.....

    Interestingly enough, its apparently for sale, go get it, so it doesn't leave the LP family!

    Shifting issue

    Let me know if you are still having the issue, I’m sure the 2 sensors being replaced and/or a relearn of the actuator will likely solve it. Or 3rd option, sell me your SV at a ‘its broken’ price and I’ll fix it and enjoy it for a few years. Jon

    E Gear problem after Launch Control

    The transmission has 2 sensors, oddly enough they are identical parts. They are cheap two, as they are Audi parts. Swap those with new ones and you should be ok. If that doesn’t do it, then I’d be worried you snapped of gears that those sensors use to read shaft speed. I know WAY more about this than most (including Lambo techs) as I blew my transmission in my 06 murci and I replaced it with an lp640 and the car did NOT like that because the gear ratios are different so it didnt like what it thought was improper shaft speeds. I solved it with a computer that adjusts the numbers for the shaft speed so the car is happy. My guess is its one of those sensors, again there is only 2. Hell I probably have a spare one in my garage. Not sure you want to do this BUT before i solved the problem correctly, I found TWO work arounds: 1. Put the car into ‘slippery when wet’ mode and it will ahift it at 3500 or so in each gear. 2. While it wont accept input from your paddle shifters on upshift, it sure will protect itself and as you come close to redline it will shift into next gear. Bet you didn’t know that . It doesn’t care about the sensors anymore, once you hit redline its gonna shift. Also once its shifted into secondif I recall correctly, all gears become available to you again UNTIL you show down and drop back into first. Then you have to pick options 1 or 2 again to get next gear. Hope this helps, been there, done that... but rest assured its solveable... I did it.

    Not gonna lie Fortis is hands down my favorite member on here and I have never met him. His success is one thing, but his perspective is always soooo spot on. I’ve never found anything he said to be idiotic or without merit. Can’t say that for the rest of you.... or even myself lol. Here is the thing. Life is short, I truly mean that, I swear just yesterday I was 11 years old dreaming about owning a Countach 5000s, today I am 45 and have owned 2 lambos and literally millions of dollars worth of cars (as have many on here). No car have I ever kept and until recently, none have ai ever profited from. I have never in all these years regretting a single sale. Sure it hurts to see a loved one go for a few days, but then you bounce right back and thing about the new love you are going to have with the new toy you bought. None of us lives forever so enjoy what you can now. For me, like women, when it comes to cars the more the marrier, try one out for a while, love it, enjoy it and when it doesn’t make your heart race like it used to.... replace it Last week I sold my Demon (for profit), my GTR (for a loss) and my Viper (Broke even), all calculated I got out with the same money I put into them as a whole about a year ago. So now I have a wad of cash begging to be soent and its my choice how I do it. I say take the money (like I did) and befin your next chapter in automotive romance! Jon

    I must admit, I love the banter between his signature and your comment lol. Ya know what, I was looking past the fact he had a Monterey Blue stick, I get so used to owning a Monterey Roadster, I forget just how special that color is. Very valid point, its MB AND Stick... if it was a convertible (aka Roadster) it would be my unicorn. Sadly no such car exists and so this is literally is my 2nd Favorite of all ‘Real’ Murcielagos. First ‘doesnt exist’ unicorn would be a SV LP670 stick in MB. I know its unpolite to ask numbers, so I wont ask, but if I was to guess $310-340k range?

    Roaster engine died while driving, won't start

    Aka, the airbag. The Murcielagos have weak 'clock springs' in the steering wheel that provides the contact to the airbag, if someone tried to adjust the steering wheel while the car was 'on' or 'running' that brief break in continuity in the airbag connection when the telecoping steering wheel is moved/adjusted sets a code, that can ONLY be removed with a TRUE Lamborghini diagnostic computer with the airbag module wire. Ask me how I know... lol... LITTERALLY HOURS BEFORE I sold my 2006 Murcielago, I had the NEW owner test driving the car, and I said 'lets adjust the steering wheel to your likeing' Car was running... SRS light triggered, and he looked at me like 'whats wrong with this car' lol.... fortunately I swore to him it had never happened before, and that I'd call my lambo tech (official one), and the lambo tech not only diagnosed the problem but also helped us to resolve it (since obviously he has the real computer), and 2 years later, and the problem has never reoccurred. IF YOU ARE GOING TO MAKE STEERING WHEEL ADJUSTMENTS, DO THEM WHEN THE CAR IS OFF !!!! (You may not have made the adjustment, but the shop you took it into may have)

    I'm pretty sure everyone is going to tell him not to sell it. IT IS after all a stick LP640, which I cant remember the numbers, but its something like 27 in the US? or 27 in the world? or 47? I cant remember, but we all know its ultra rare. OK so that said, BEFORE the price hike occurred roughly what 2-3 years ago? I would NOT have taken a stick over a e-gear, even my old posts indicated this. BUT what I would do, is take the money and run. If he has the chance to 'profit' on the increased price of a manual, but get himself BACK into a murci with CASH in his pocket....I'd do it. Here is why, I sold my 06 murci and said I'd never own another, then after 6 months without one, I was DYING to get back into one. So I did... obviously. Now fast forward to about 6 months ago, I thought about selling my murci for a performante……… which I was advised on here NOT to do that.... and you know what, they were right... I see performantes and regular huricons (barely can tell them apart) in my town (yes we have a mixed bag of bout 10 right now in the area) and we usually attend some of the same 'car shows' or car events... and you know what happens when the murci shows up? All the other cars disappear (at least to the spectators). Even the Aventador has a problem drawing the same crowd a murci does... I think we can thank all the Rappers for making the Murcielago such an iconic car. At the end of the day, I don't think its so much about what drive train the car has, but that you either HAVE or DONT HAVE a Murcielago. I am not saying the other Lambo's out there aren't amazing, hell I am not even saying they aren't better.... I am saying... they aren't murcielagos and they haven't captured the hearts the world over like the Murcielago has. If you leave.... you will be back.

    Murcielago Appreciation

    We’ll have to disagree, I think every element of the cars come into consideration when they are evaluated against their siblings. Its like stick vs egear, 580hp vs 640hp, amazing brakes vs mediocre (removed inflammatory language if thats causing the issue) . I never brought up this point to create any hostility or a debate, simply brought up a less mechanically acceptable aspect of one of critical components that I think matters in evaluation. Thanks, Jon

    I’m not a fan of theirs, but this is EXACTLY what I was guessing was going to happen. Sadly he is probably going to get it with the current hype on stick murcielagos.

    DTP Exhaust

    I am your guy for this, hopefully you’ll trust I am not a Whiteout fan boy as I give honest feedback on what works and doesn’t work. 1. It sounds fantastic, it still reminds me of my LOC that I replaced it with, but it saves a good few pounds over that setup. Pretty sure however it does not shoot flames as no one has mentioned that while following me and I do a lot of group car stuff that someone would have said so. If you want flames you have to drop the primaries too. 2. I haven’t gotten a single engine code with this setup, no engine missfire and no CAT efficiency codes either. BUT if you remove the primaries to make those flames, good chance you will get a CAT code. Thanks, Jon

    You just got exposed to the very reason I cannot stand that guy.

    I have these on my car, and its the simplest,lightest, most effective secondary and muffler delete option out there.

    Either I wasn’t clear or you didn’t understand me, what I am saying is something we all know, retail sale of a car fetches more money then a private party sale. If Roy sells the car (or actually its current owner Chicago Motor cars) they will get more money for it than if I sold it myself. So while the costs to purchase it from the auction house would be the same the resale price would be more profitable to a retail store then a private party. So I was under the belief and proven right that a retail store bought it and will certainly be trying to get a nice profit off it. More than I could have gotten if I had bought it and done the same.
