  1. I have the occasional locking issue when I go to unarm the car it likes to unlock and then immediately lock; however never had the issue when in the car and exiting. As others mentioned here probably the actuator on one side or the other sticking. If you listen by the door when you lock and unlock with your key fob you may be able to hear which side is causing the issue to make all doors stick. Once a door jam adjustment fixed mine for a while, but now I suspect the actuator. For safety maybe leave your window down when turning it off so you could reach to the outside and use your key if needed on the door lock then turn the car on and lower the windows. Or just open the doors before shutting it down. Its odd you get stuck inside. When I use the handle inside the car it always opens for me.
  2. Looking around to replace my finicky Maserati Biturbo as a daily work driver I ran into the MBZ SL65 and SL600 as nice bang for the buck cars, convertible is a benefit in So Cal and quick as heck too. Kind of Plain Jane but I found you can spice them up a bit with nice wheels and lowering kit, and even get 700+ HP with a simple RENNtech or other chip upgrade.
  3. Yeah ditto to all above. I suffered for a couple years before I eventually got stuck with no staring at all (and if you can't start it and need to raise the front for any reason such as pushing out of an uneven driveway for tow or getting it on a tow truck, it will not raise to save your front lip). With the guys here they helped guide me through the process of putting a remote starter on the starter to send all the juice right to the starter and I was able to start it that way to get it to the shop for a new starter. You can read the link below about my issue if you want. But before all that also a tech told me to check if the dome light comes on right after disarming with the fob and opening the door, because if it doesn't come on sometimes the car alarm thinks the car was not entered properly and so the ignition alarm is still set. Good luck with it, maybe you just need a rebuild/cleaning and new solenoid but with me I learned the dealerships don't rebuild and just put in new parts. Ok with me, hopefully I'm good for another 10 years. https://www.lambopower.com/forum/index.php?/topic/83070-starter-problem/
  4. Funny for me anyway the light isn't appearing anymore. Good idea though to have the sensors looked at when I do my next brake fluid change, I didn't know the wheels come off for that.
  5. Hey there, I just noticed this posting. Nice looking car! I have a group 4 and others. If you do the group 4 flares make sure you get em done right in steel & butt welded and built around the diameter of the wheels/tires you plan to use. I've seem some done improperly and it kinda ruins the look of the car. https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/albums/72157639222739254
  6. Thanks for the info. Outside seems pretty much like all SUVs, but inside mamamia that really looks nice. Maybe its just me but I don't get the purpose of SUVs anyway. There really isn't that much more room than a 4 seater car with trunk, and we all know they ain't going off road with these things. Maybe the purpose of an SUV is so you can see over all the other SUV on the road?
  7. Just to conclude, my issue was definitely a bad starter because ever since the new starter went in about a year ago it starts 100% of the time. I suppose once the car started having intermittent starting issues I should have taken it in because after a few months of intermittent non starting it finally lead to no starting at all. The remote starter was a blessing because it allowed me to at least start the car and get the front raised to clear my driveway dip and to the shop for a new starter.
  8. Ha ha you rang? Sorry just noticed the old post back in September. You are all correct, buy them done right and virtually there are no issues whatsoever. Just change the oil & filter on occasion, bleed the brakes & clutch fluid with new fluid every few years and that's about it. I got three shown in the link below and they run like clocks; although after 10 years I had to clean my plugs the other day on my black car as it was stumbling a bit but now runs smooth as butta. Its a car that you can actually climb into the engine bay and reach anything you may need to do (which like I said is virtually nothing). https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/albums/with/72157635769607434
  9. Thanks guys. It just occurred to me, being rather anal I tend to wipe down my wheels after a run and even do so with a microfiber to the inside of the wheels too. I am thinking maybe I hit a wire in doing so but will try and investigate further. The light is just occasional and so I figure no real big deal as long as my pads visually look thick as shown. Maybe at my next tire change I will have it looked into unless I see something in the mean time.
  10. Occasionally my brake pad warning light comes on the dash, however in looking at my pads to me it looks like there is a great deal of pad left on all the wheels (sample photo attached). I took photos from the outside of the wheels, but I would suspect the inside pads would have somewhat equal wear as the outside pads, no? Only other thing I see is maybe the rear emergency brake pads look a bit low, but I never use the emergency brake and I don't think they have sensors anyway. Any thoughts, maybe overly cautious sensor pads built on the Lambos? I will see if I can slip my iPhone to the inside of the wheels to see what the inside pads look like.
  11. I had those exact same concerns or reasons for not adding the skid plates; but after thinking it through and discussions with others I had them added. I have seen many exotics but not many seem to have such a long front end to tire distance, so the front is real prone to hitting an uneven surface before the front tires arrive to that surface to raise the car. Sure when you see something the hydraulic button helps raise the car and angling the car helps too, but sometimes not enough or sometimes you don't see shit before it happens. For instance on the drive south near Laguna Beach I see road gouges on this one road dip where many cars have bottomed out...oops too late. I was also concerned about the added lower ground clearance by adding them but they are so thin that you can't even see them unless you bend down parallel and close to the car (see photo kneeling down). But the real benefit is if you have an unexpected incident (or more), you can just replace the skid plate whereas without the plate then you are looking at repairing carbon fiber, paint etc (or the entire bumper if bad enough). If you don't care about your front bumper underside I guess no big deal, but I have seen some cars that got scraped where you can visibly see the damage on the front lower portion when looking at the car straight on. Street pavement seems to rip the carbon fiber apart but with skid plate it just leaves small skid marks in the plastic surface and like I said easy to then replace the plate if you want. I am pretty careful and have not scraped my plates yet, but just glad they are there just in case. Anyway my longwinded reasoning.
  12. On the news this morning, news says he just lost control hitting several parked cars no DUI stuff.
  13. Hot wheels 310 Motoring Whip has made some nice orange versions as well besides the Maisto. I like the larger trick wheels on the Playerz & Whip. Seems to offset the breasts better for card holder.
  14. Ha yes, Maisto Playerz version. Red is nice, you don't see too many of those. I am partial to green (I wonder why) & orange thus snatched up primarily those.
  15. Saw this nice 2009 greenie offered by Cats. Don't see too many green come along for sale. I have seen similar cars with such green calipers & valve covers, although the one I saw had green interior too (a bit more similar to mine). Would be nice for someone in the OC area to snatch it up to have a couple greenies in the area to shake up all the OC conservatives. http://www.catsexotics.com/vehicle-details/2009-lamborghini-murcielago-lp640-lynnwood-wa-id-12479019 https://www.ebay.com/itm/2009-Lamborghini-Murcielago-LP640/174066066926?hash=item28872565ee:g:pVUAAOSwUrNdkl0M
