  1. That car was for sale for a very loooong time. Do you know that it definitely sold? Or was it just taken off sale?

    SE30 Jota

    I don't know for sure, the advert says "has been completely restored by the factory and has a totally original specification" If that interior really is original specification (I think it may well be apart from the gear knob which used to be black), you wouldn't want to remove it. But could you live with it? The exhaust doesn't look very OEM. And it's a shame somebody's cut through the carbon storage box behind the driver's seat to fit a speaker. I guess that could be replaced though. Still, I don't disagree that it's a good price; just I personally couldn't buy a car in that colour scheme. If the car was in 30 purple I think it would have sold by now.

    SE30 Jota

    And that was in about October 2013; the market has gone up a lot since then. If this Jota wasn't such a funny colour scheme it'd be snapped up by now at £300K.

    RM Countach!

    Diablo’s are the last of the totally crazy pre-Audi Lambos. Less than 3,000 produced versus almost 4,000 Murcielagos. Their time will come. GT’s and SE30’s will be first IMHO. Diablo prices in the UK are already on the move.
  5. I don't just travel at low speed, but Albert is completely right. I get my carbs tuned at least once a year by Roberto Grimaldi at Grimaldi Engineering. It makes a big difference to the enjoyment of the car when the carbs are just right, especially when driving in traffic. Grimaldi also tunes them with just a screwdriver and his ears.
  6. A GTR makes a fantastic daily driver. Mine is a mere 600BHP and is silly fast, but with adjustable mapping you can put it into “economy” mode and your granny could take it shopping. If I’m in a hurry I'd take the GTR; but if I want to really enjoy driving the Countach is much more fun!
  7. The video Allan-Herbie posted was at Rockingham. This is about something at Castle Combe. Maybe a Countach beat a Ferrari at Castle Combe too…
  8. The manual for my Anniversary says: For running at speeds up to 260kph (160mph) 2.6 bar (38psi) front 2.8 bar (40.5 psi) rear For running at speeds in excess of 260kph (160mph) 2.8 bar (40.5 psi) front 3.0 bar (43.5 psi) rear I tend to run at the lower figures as I rarely go over 160mph for more than a few seconds and at the higher pressures the ride is too hard.
  9. Hi Chad, Mine are beyond re-use apparently due to the cracks. They are with a calliper rebuild specialist at the moment. My Lambo specialist is talking to a classic BMW expert friend of his so is hopeful we may be able to source some over here. If not I’ll be in touch. Thanks TSS
  10. Thanks for the replies everybody. The originals on my Anniversary only have one feed to them, the fronts are different to the rears and they have spacers on them. The guy who looks after my car thinks they are off an E28 BMW M5, but can anybody confirm this? Maybe Lambo bought direct from ATE when they could and then as Peter K suggests bought BMW when they needed to?? Initial investigations suggest that BMW might want the same price as Lamborghini for these parts. I would only buy originals not copied parts as I’ve had trouble with non-original copies of brake components on another vehicle.
  11. Hi topcarbon, I have thought about upgrading the brakes but I do want to try and keep the car standard. I need to investigate options on this a bit more. Does anybody know if anybody does an upgrade kit? Hi Albert LP, They are available from Lamborghini and you are right on the price. I just think circa 600 Euros is a lot for one brake calliper! And I need three of them. Regards, TSS
  12. Hi, Can anybody tell me which car the brake callipers on a 1989 Anniversary are off or where I can get some? I doubt Lamborghini had them specially made. I have just found out that 3 of mine are cracked and the price from Lamborghini is eyewatering! Thanks in advance, TSS
  13. Thanks, I know, mine used to be jumped. I have just swapped the dash light bulbs for LED’s as recommended by some posters on here a while ago, so now it would be nice to have a working dimmer switch. TSS
  14. The dash dimmer rheostat on my 1989 Anniversary has burned out. It’s part number 18 on this diagram: http://www.eurospares.co.uk/parttablePopup4.asp?ID=1549658 Can anybody tell me which car this originally came from so I can get a new one? Or anywhere selling them at a sensible price? I think it may be from a Fiat. Thanks in advance, TSS

    Alpine stereo

    My UK 1989 Anniversary came with an Alpine 7385L. But it has been suggested that Lamborghini just put in whatever they could get cheap from Alpine at the time so different cars built at the same time may have had different radios.
