  1. LamboCARS (or any other Pshop gurus!)... I was wondering if one of you could take a stab at throwing some BRONZE Lamborghini "Narvi" wheels (and maybe black NARVI wheels). The Huracan Performante Release car had such an amazing spec (Matte Pearl Orange with Bronze Narvi wheels). So I'm just curious how the Gallardo will wear the wheels (in particular... a Gallardo with the SL wing like mine). Not sure if these would bolt-on... but I'm sure considering doing it if it will work! Stock photos below for request:

    Credit score question...

    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

    Breitling: Revamped!

    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!

    Aventador SV-J Discussion and New Information

    Damn!! Both those cars look so damn good. Agree with @Destructo - the LP670SV and ASVJ both just look sooooo damn perfect in white!

    Happy Thanksgiving

    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

    Manual Transmission Swap?

    Wish we could know for sure! (Like a video of the car operating as manual before it was Frankenstein modded beyond repair.)

    Manual Transmission Swap?

    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?

    Bring the old site back

    I agree with the crew on this one too

    Bring the old site back

    @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!!
  12. Hey guys, I'm excited to share a new build I have going on with B.Rouge Built here in West Chicago. This build will make my car the first full titanium straight pipe 5.0 (pre-LP) Gallardo exhaust system in the world. There have been several documented titanium X-Pipes, but none with full titanium cat deletes as well (so far as I can see). Also, this won't be an X-Pipe design (it will be an H pipe). The car will also be getting full titanium intakes (ram-air) + B.Rouge's NA Gallardo Tune. It is the full NA Gallardo Package they offer 🔥 --- Because titanium doesn't resonate like stainless steel does, this exhaust is going to sound more true to tone (+ INSANE). This is the same reason why the highest end speakers in the world are made with titanium as well. I was originally going a different direction with my car, but after stopping by the B.Rogue Shop to check out a friend's Single Turbo Superleggera 5.0 build, I was hooked on Brandon's product and quality. It is seriously NUTS. Brandon previously headed up R&D for A/M/S (GTRs & R8s) and is responsible for many of the bulletproof builds on some of highest horsepower cars in the country. Here are some examples of his recent work and the gorgeously difficult weld quality that roped me in: I'm so amped up about this project!! Brandon is a total artist (/mad scientist) and an absolute MONSTER at welding titanium. More importantly, he has a great heart and is now someone I call a friend. I will be documenting the build in this thread in the coming weeks, as well as posting before and after pictures and videos of the build/ final product/ sound. Car was dropped off last night! I already know this shop is going to go MEGA!! The Huracan exhausts I heard last week at the shop are wicked. I'd highly recommend shooting B.Rogue a message if you have a build in mind for your car. Here's my car parked behind/under Jesse James' Roadster Shop 64' Polara (B.Rogue just finished it up): In the meantime, check out B.Rogue's website or instagram to see more work: Lamborghini Huracan Exhaust, Audi R8 Exhaust, Twin Turbo Gallardo | B.Rogue
  13. 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!

    — Site Announcement — A Familiar Look is Back!

    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

    — Site Announcement — A Familiar Look is Back!

    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!

    Will I regret this in the morning?

    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.

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!

    Aventador SV-J Discussion and New Information

    Congrats!! Good luck with the allocation - hope it goes smooth. That is going to be an AMAZING car my friend. The Viola Parsifae should look AMAZING with the gold/bronze engine cover and bronze exhaust accent details.
  23. Thank you my friend! It feels like forever ago when I picked the car up on that cold February day =) Clutch is perfect! haha B-Rogue has also gone over the whole car for me. We tended to any preventative maintenance, and got brand new Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires all around.
