  1. I like the wheels and what he did with the door window. Also like the new intakes on the quarters (Diablo?). Don't like the wing or the front wheel arch.
  2. Find a salvage car being parted out. You've probably thought of this..., but maybe these forums will give you a lead on a car.
  3. Any indication about events like Quail and Pebble Concours? I think its likely they'll still hold a private event during Monterey Car Week (2021) but is Quail exclusive enough for them?
  4. On a 6.0 (same on Murci?) the coil is held to the valve cover with a U-shaped clip. From the pictures it looks like the extra tab on these coils will interfere with clip. Has anyone tried installing these yet? Did you grind off the extra plastic on these coils? Do the coils have a groove to accept the clip?

    Quail 2020

    Tickets roll-over to 2021 which is fine by me. I was worried they would hold the event and have a poor manufacturer turnout. Maybe we'll see the Aventador replacement revealed at Quail 2021!?
  6. for my Diablo 6.0 I built a 2x6 arm with some pads to sit on top the jack and lift the frame on each side near the front diff. Of course I have to drive the car onto ramps first to get the jack and arm underneath.
  7. The car is authentic, now I remember seeing it about 4-5 years ago in Milpitas CA. Met the owner. https://youtu.be/V3Trd3AYh0o?t=109
  8. forgive me if this is a replica. I can't see anything in the pictures that would indicate it's not real. https://sfbay.craigslist.org/eby/pts/d/hayward-1997-lamborghini-diablo-parting/7069949472.html
  9. If someone want to know more about the car perhaps talk to [email protected] Exotics. He was with Al at the time and possibly contributed to it. Looks clean, I like the paint color. The decals need to go. Custom air cleaner appears to be missing.
  10. The Diablo has a reputation for being reliable when not neglected. If you are worried about maintenance costs or parts availability spend the extra money up front to get a well sorted car. I have never owned a 512TR but I've considered a few. Keep in mind that Ferrari is a sports car company and the 512TR is a GT car. While Lamborghini is an exotic car manufacturer and the Diablo was their flagship car in the 90's (ok, so it was also there only car at the time).
  11. I've done it but forgotten the details. The basic problem is getting stuff out of the way so your hands can reach behind. I think I had to remove the fans to give my hand room to reach the nuts that hold covers in place. You also need to remove the center grill and it might help to have the muffler box if you yours if yours is stock or in the way.

  13. Diablo's have a switch on the parking brake that gets stuck on. Jiggle it.
  14. Congratulations and enjoy! As for the creaking sounds, it depends on where they are coming from. The interior is full of creaks from the leather and panels. The drivetrain doesn't have much isolation from the frame so you'll feel lots of vibrations and resonances depending on rpm and load. The suspension should be quiet. Perhaps some of the rubber bushings are worn out. The rubber ages regardless of the number of miles on the car.
