    Do NOT just use a California duster on the naked paint. You will regret it.

    I'm looking for a manual shifter mechanism.

    A couple of the manual 640's have been wrecked in the last couple years. I wonder if their trans have been salvaged out of them.
  7. Yeah, bonkers money. I've now got a few of the pieces. I guess I was being a little optimistic hoping that a complete used shifter would turn up.
  8. Damn! I was under the impression it was an easy job too. I have my car on the ramp at the moment & I have no front diff, so maybe I really should tackle it right now! Thanks for the info.
  9. So it's been mentioned that you should take an extra 5 mins to proactively replace the 4" long power steering return hose in the front of the car above the front differential during your next oil change. Well, let me tell you, if you still have your front differential, it's no 5 minute job! In fact, there will be moments that you will think it has become a 10 hour+ job of dismantling the entire front of the car to get that hose back on! The issue is that the section of hose is only 4 inches long, and it's very thick rubber that doesn't want to bend, and you can't get your hands into the area from above or below to bend that hose at an extreme angle to get it on to the pipes that are not lined up with each other. Getting it off wasn't even fun. I ended up using a long knife to cut the hose at the ends and then push it off. When I got off the old hose, it looked in great shape both inside and out with no signs of cracking, stiffening, or ballooning. I also found it hard to buy 1/2" inner diameter power steering return hose locally. I had to have a NAPA store order it, and then drive a long way to the closest NAPA to pick it up. No other part stores had the right size. So get the hose before you start the project! You can definitely mail order it if you don't have a NAPA nearby. I'll update this thread with some videos shortly to show why it's a difficult job and how I found a way to do it. It was another Lamborghini Chinese puzzle, because it's clear that hose was put on while they were assembling the car, with no intention to make it easy to change. If it weren't for some really long curved needle nose pliers in my tool kit, along with some tricks I stumbled on at the time to get the hose back on, I would not have been able to do the job without major disassembly of the car (such as dropping the front diff).

    Lets Send LamboCARS to Monterey 2019!

    Over the years, a good percentage of members here, be they Lambo owners or not, have had the pleasure of using LamboCARS' various Lamborghini configurators. They are superior to Lamborghini SpA's own and they costed us absolutely nothing to use. Some of us had even asked the man to tailor-config a car or two to assist on visualizing their cars prior to ordering one. Again, LamboCARS had done all of these for absolutely free. It has always been his goal to be at Monterey week. It would be a great gesture if some of us can make a contribution to realize his goal. And yes he had and still has a rather challenging path so let's start returning the favors. Destructo, let us know as soon as you have finalized the GoFundMe details please.

    Its definitely a car that always demands your concentration. It wont just kill you for no reason, but you definitely respect the car and your own limits.

    That sounded incredible ! After hearing about the car being a handful to drive, the video seems to show a car that is pretty well planted through the corners. Given that you have a great deal of experience with various higher powered RWD exotics, how does it feel compared to the others? Are there any things that this car does that cause short check moments that doesn’t happen in other cars in similar situations? Thanks. .

    Car sounds great! Make sure you get an external microphone and a windsock for it. Would really clarify the noise and get rid of the wind.

    Geneva Motor Show 2019

    Not really Lamborghini related, but Koenigsegg is showing their Agera successor as you might know at Geneva. And I just got news they will not tease the car until its official debut on the 5th. A bit sad since I love seeing teasers. But other makers are being really slow as well I feel. Nothing from any of the prestige brands to speak of atm? Strange ...

    Sorry, I didn't get to your initial question. Been a bit hectic here. Glad it got answered!

    Fuel vapor hose - really bad shape!

    My earlier car didn't have a spring. Instead of a spring, what they needed to do was put a right angle joint instead of getting a short, thick hose to bend 90 degs. I plan to do that next time I am in there.

    Just curious, did yours have a spring inside of it? Presumably to prevent the hose from kinking. In my case the failure point was at the edge of the spring.

    Great idea for great guy. He's had a tough path and does lots for no remuneration. This will be a nice way to give him great holiday.

    The new version is an improvement over what we have now. There is a preview for the Mods and Admins this afternoon so we'll have the new version up shortly. I'll post later today/tomorrow with some more details.
