Hi,

I am new to this forum but used to be on another forum when I was building a 996TT. I found the forum useful and enjoyable, so I am glad to be a member of your community!

I recently picked up an 06 Murci Roadster (orange/black). It is factory with the exception of an Orange County Lamborghini exhaust. I am not sure if the cats have been removed or not. I would like to find out effective yet not harmful ways to get the motor to breathe better.. ideas? I do not want to get internal to the motor as... let's just say I had a REALLY bad experience with a Diablo 15 years ago.

I have tinkered with the sound system: Alpine flip up CD/DVD/NAV/Sirius/Back Up Camera and Ipod inteface going to dual McIntash MCC302 amps, one of which power Morel Elate 6.5 carbon fiber seperates (The "LE" for the audiophiles out there) and the other going to an Alpine SWR-T10 sub behind the passenger seat. This sub requires alomost no space, will fit, but is very power hungry. The sub should be in on Monday.. Will report smile.gif

Also, I am on the fence with the wheels. I am considering the Klassen or the HRE (both 19 x 8.5 and 20x13). Any experience? Are these reliable at speed?

Again, thanks for the input and I will make every effort to contribute my experiences to this community.

p.s. My name is Sean, I live is South Florida

Your door leather is different from each other, the left door has holes in the leather and right does not. Did it come from the factory that way?

The drivers side "cockpit" (door, dash, center console) is perforated, and the passenger side is not. Yes, it is factory.

Welcome to Lambo Power! Gorgeous murcie. I wish we had more up in Vancouver (although we do have a lot of exotics). I'm currently down visiting a buddy in SW Florida and have to say that you guys sure know how to do it when it comes to cars. Enjoy in good health, and props on the 3 pedal transmission. I'll bet that wasn't very easy to find.

Welcome to the Bull pen. A fine acquisition there, one of my favorite colors for the Murcielago. Enjoy in good health!

Welcome to the forum Sean. The first Lambo I ever took a ride in was a 2006 Orange/orange Roadster 6 speed with the same Hercules rims (brushed aluminum color though) and a larini exhaust. Love the roadster, congratulations.

Cool to have you here. Keep the pics coming!
