  1. Welcome! Sick SV brother. Congrats on the car
  2. Hey guys! Here are two recent videos featuring my LP640 in California. Bone stock, but the exhaust still sounds great! Second video the car is featured in the last couple minutes: Straight pipes should be ready second week of April. Can't wait!! Alex
  3. Thank you! Thanks, definitely cool ownership. Mountain Dews baby! (look up the Shaun White clip lol) Thanks so much my friend. Thanks @cake! Appreciate the kind words. Me too! Balloon White, Arancio Atlas, or Monterey Blue on the Murci = heavenly. Thanks brother! I will definitely keep the updates on the car coming. Can't wait to share the exhaust with you all! And thank you for the kind words . Thank you, totally agree. Undeniable presence on the road! Me too! Thank you so much. I love the Verde Ithaca on your car. Alex (owner of Elite) wrapped his Balloon White car in "Avery Green" wrap color, and the Balloon pearl shows through ever so slightly... so it is VERY close to Verde Ithaca. Had me thinking about future change up if I ever get bored
  4. Hey guys! Well, the search is over :). After passing on two Gated LP640 cars over the last 6-months, this Balloon White 2007 E-Gear LP640 came up and was too good for me to pass on!! Kevin (@KMY on the forums) sold me the car. We had been talking since November off-market, before he went ahead and put the car on consignment with Elite Motor Cars in San Francisco. I had been looking at a few cars and shot Kevin a text last week to check in with him to see if we could come to an agreement on his car, which we did. I have to say that Kevin is a total class act!! I would not hesitate to buy a car from him again (even without a PPI). Awesome guy with great taste, and he has more cool cars than Jay Leno! And he takes impeccable care of his stuff. Alex (owner of Elite) helped facilitate the transaction - and he is now someone I am happy to call a friend. A true car guy (has owned his own LP640 for 5 years and just took delivery of an SVJ). He went above and beyond to make the day special and to provide top notch service. He even gave me a 1-hour on road EGear lesson (since all my cars have been Manual previously). Highly recommend anyone here to purchase from ELITE Motor Cars. Kevin, the owner I purchased from, bought the car with 28,000 miles and at 30,000 miles he promptly did: +Valve timing adjustment +New Clutch +New Throw out bearing +Rear main seal +Clutch sensor & Potentiometer +Rear Motor mounts & brackets +Replace Radiator hoses +Replace all Drive Belts +Starter motor +Cams refinished +New Pirelli Corsa tires +New CV axle boots +Plugs, fluids +Alignment So the car is literally BRAND NEW and ready to go for next 30K miles. And it is BONE STOCK. No mods. All service work was done by TED at Taromina Imports in SF, who is highly regarded on FChat. I spoke with him and he gave the car his blessing. I purchased the car from Kevin with 31,100 miles and have already put 700 miles on in just the first 3 days of ownership. I drove it from San Francisco to Beverly Hills (400 miles) and got it up to 147mph on the highway. It is SO SMOOTH at speed. Unbelievable machine. Took it down to Pelican Hill + Laguna Beach the next day and put another 200 miles on it zipping around, before taking it to the canyons to drive with some friends who have YouTube channels. This car was previously owned by an awesome Lambo enthusiast named Kandy in San Fran. And before him it was owned by Shaun White!! Yes, that Shaun White. One of the coolest athletes on earth. I can feel the Olympic blood coursing through my arms each time I grab the wheel :D:D The car is now with my friends Mark & Mitch at Avant Garde Xotics, who both looked it over and said they couldn't find one thing wrong with it after (except engine struts and door struts are only 60% strong, so we are replacing those). We are also doing a full straight-pipe setup on the car, to achieve the Kreissieg sound (just without a valved system, since valves tend to go bad and rattle). AGX previously did Brian (BlkPrez's) Murci straight pipes and they sound was amazing, but the system was 3-inch diameter so the tone was slightly deeper than I like. We are going to go 2.5-inch to achieve the best pitch. But basically, the same insane setup as this: https://www.instagram.com/p/BfcORENFLZz/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet https://www.instagram.com/p/BtEtC1iFOde/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet Exterior, I will keep exactly as is. Just plain classy. Just adding wheel spacers to the rear wheels. I AM ON CLOUD 9 with this car. My dream car since I was 12. I'm now 29. Can't believe this is real life. Wow wow wow.
  5. I bet the Matte Gold color looks unreal in person. I would just body-color match the Carbon Fiber rear intake/shoulder vents to be the same gold, and the center-line splitter in the front bumper as well (like on the AV-S). Same for the black side/radiator vents. Color match those too. Car will look more complete with a few of the sections being full color rather than broken by carbon fiber or black. Awesome car though all together!
  6. Had this happen with a BULLSHIT clothing store credit card over a $7 when I moved when I was 22. Never got the letters. 30 days late for first time ever. I called them EVERYDAY for 4 weeks, 2x or 3x per day. Talking to different people, asking the same thing each time and asking for a one-time forgiveness. Asked for managers. Etc. A manager finally told me to type up a letter stating my case and gave me an address to fax it to for my appeal (faxing was an ancient tech for 2012 at the time). I did as she said and *COMENITY bank (the lender) removed the derogatory remarks. Like it never happened. Drink some caffeine and start POUNDING THAT PHONE man! Be the squeaky (annoying as fcuk!) wheel
  7. The brand has a new CEO (Georges Kern, former IWC CEO) as of July 2017. I think they are crushing it this year. Love their new designs (the Superocean in particular). I just got one for myself as a milestone reward. Have gotten comments everywhere I go! Superocean Heritage II, 44mm, Red Gold Breitling has historically been a niche player, but the new CEO is opening it up to the "80% of the market they were missing". I think they will do well. I also like one of the new Navitimer watches w/ white face that I saw (with a Horus Camo strap). Just thought I'd let you guys know, in case you haven't checked them out lately!
  8. Saw this one on Instagram and loved it! Thanks for posting
  9. Woohoo! Just followed on IG. I am @Lambo_Jesus on there =)
  10. Damn!! Both those cars look so damn good. Agree with @Destructo - the LP670SV and ASVJ both just look sooooo damn perfect in white!
  11. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope it was a good one and that everyone got plenty of seat time in their V10 or V12 on the way to spend time with loved ones
  12. Wish we could know for sure! (Like a video of the car operating as manual before it was Frankenstein modded beyond repair.)
  13. Bringing an interesting thread back from the dead for the holiday season! To date, I still don't believe anyone has successfully converted an EGEAR LP640 to Manual. JonV8944S and OzMurc - any updates here? Any success with the process? @OzMurc , were you able to put everything together and "see what lights" came up on the dash when your car was started? Did you end up finding an ECU and GFU to use?
  14. I agree with the crew on this one too
  15. @fmari I don't think it's necessarily the new website. Being down for a bit definitely hurt the user base... but I think there is a slight "changing of the guard" in both online media and exotics right now that could be contributing to what you're describing (and they are intertwined). Social Media Changing of the Guard Social media is killing forums. Forums have become relegated to be places for deep technical information (only) and to catch up with old car buddies (for the older guys, no offense). Everyone else simply stays in touch on social media, DMing on Instagram, Facebook groups, YouTube, etc.. Exotics Changing of the Guard In the LP prime/golden days (think, 2006, 2007, 2008 pre-crisis)... your top Exotic Marquees were Lamborghini, Ferrari annnndddd... Bentley? That was about it. Nowadays there are sooo many more exotic options, and brands playing "above the rim" to compete with the exotics. Biggest one being: McLaren. Followed by Porsche (which has always been there... but is REALLY stepping up. And with how the GT3RS and GT3 + GT2RS have captured young hearts and minds, is a bigger fish today in the post-social media world). Aston Martin has crept back into favor, and is making better cars in partnership with Mercedes. Mercedes is making special AMG cars en-masse (SLS, AMG GT and GTR), etc. etc. So we went from: Lamborghini, Ferrari, Bentley To: Lamborghini, Ferrari, McLaren, Porsche, Aston Martin, Mercedes, Singer, AUDI (R8) and more What does it all mean? There are less people coming to forums, and more forums + brands competing for their time. We just need to spread the word to the "old guard" user-base here and get their asses back in the chair posting!!
  16. Wow, the video embed size on the new forum looks awesome! Thanks for the tip for future posts And thank you for the kind words =). I'm loving it too - and it's about 10x louder in person haha. Yes, I talked to Brandon (owner of B-Rogue) last week when I had my oil changed and he is building & installing an Aventador system for a customer as soon as cold weather hits. Can't wait for the videos! He is also doing downpipes + tune for a 675LT and TT'ing 2 more Huracans in the coming couple months. Should be some great content coming from those guys!
  17. You bet! 1 more for you: Hyperlink text in the body of forum posts also matches the background. For example... (I am posting an eBay link below): https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lamborghini-Murcielago-LP-670-4-SuperVeloce/123392767791?hash=item1cbac8372f:g:trsAAOSw011bkUdi:rk:4:pf:0&vxp=mtr
  18. Happy the dark theme is back! Much more pleasing to the dopamine centers in my brain. Just FYI for you guys... if you look at your PM's, you can't see the text anymore in PMs with people (white text on white background). Thanks for all the hard work. Still just so happy this place is back!
  19. Now I can post my "I WILL regret this in the morning" addition to this thread... haha I was the original prospective buyer Joe was referring to in this thread. Was texting back and forth with Joe after I had contacted him about his car back in July. We were very close on price, but I was in a holding pattern - waiting for this car season to end to enjoy the Gallardo I had just purchased (Chipster's old car, which I had just completed full Titanium Exhaust and Intakes on as well). I also had been giving another car consideration when Joe let me know he'd be willing to part with his. Joe sent me his final and best price back on Aug 4th and I sat on it for a bit. I came to my senses and was ready to pull the trigger on his car this month --- Then I saw this thread... So yes... I do regret not buying this Gated Murcielago with my favorite Kreissieg Exhaust (even with 47,000 miles - didn't bother me). Congrats to you though, JJG! Hope you enjoy whatever is next in the best of health. And thank you for all the info on your car.
  20. Awesome man, congrats! That MB Murci Roadster is one of the best looking cars in the country. No doubt. Enjoy them in good health!
  21. Huge congrats! Your spec is amazing, good sir! Love the Blu
  22. What a fantastic day for us Lamborghini lovers around the world!! The end of an era (raw V12, no hybrid assist) and it goes out with the ultimate BANG. Marco Mapelli = BALLS OF fcuking STEEL again. That is a BIG car to be throwing around like that. Jeeze! Great company. Fantastic car. I am like a proud parent today!
