  1. Sorry to resurrect but I thought I would share my endeavours and the outcome. Yesterday I finally got round to taking the door card off. What a pig of a job! Following the recommendations I got a mate to gave me a hand. The job would definitely be challenging going solo. Door card off everything looked good. No broken cables, window seated correctly and no evidence of anything amiss. The mechanism is a £2k part and probably close to £1k for a dealer to fit. Faced with this I decided to have one final poke at the centre consul control switch. I pulled it out (easy, 15 second job) and was testing the connections with my multi meter. All of a sudden up went the window ! It turns out one of the bayonets had a bad contact in the female. After a little bit of fettling the switch now works the window. For peace of mind I will replace the switch. £60 plus a bit of postage. In conclusion - if anyone else ever has this problem I implore you to check the switch as your first action. It could be it will save you a lot of money and time with no noticeable increase in blood pressure (door card removal related) Best AL
  2. I came across this video when watching the Mr Ed Vinwiki Verde Draco video It's been a while since I've seen an up to date roadster review video has on the interweb I'm not sure I agree with the bizarre or quirks descriptions but on balance the review is good.
  3. I love anecdotes like this. Only true petrolheads do stuff like this. Beautiful car to boot.
  4. I visited LP and it opened in the new theme automatically. I wanted to compare so clicked and changed to the old theme. I am now on the old theme with no obvious or apparent way of getting back to the new theme Is it a once in a lifetime choice?
  5. I have no issue with those that do but personally I have never bought in to the practice of allowing branding on clothing, footwear, luggage and accesories to speak to my dedication and allegiance to the marque. I let the badge on the bonnet of of my cars do that. I do however have a rarely worn baseball cap generously given to me as a freebee by a main dealer many years ago.
  6. The 6 litre is stunning. I am biased I know, but these cars seem to un-age as the years go by. And yes, I know, there is no such word as un-age
  7. I am the opposite. I like it a lot. It is actually better than I imagined. Seeing it in the real would be the decider. I suspect this colour will not be good for resale value. Saying that, the Diablo 6.0SE in gold seems to command a chunky price.
  8. Now I am confused. I thought the official number stated by the company was 900 SVJ coupe. I was never clear on where the 63 sat in this number. i.e. 837 SVJ + 63 "63" SVJ = 900 total or 900 SVJ + 63 "63" SVJ = 963 total I suppose build number confusion with Lamborghini shouldn't come as a surprise. After all they guarenteed a maximum of 4000 AV. The total number is likely to be in excess of 9,000 and probably closer to 10,000 Based on this I would take any stated build numbers with a pinch of salt.
  9. They all look the same on the inside. Corporate branding diktat imposed by HQ. Not a bad thing. I actually quite like current style theme. I wonder if they impose the same coffee bean and biscotti across all the dealerships? I like the externals of Rancho Mirage. The architecture has character and the lighting is welcoming. I wish them every success.

    Snorkel car! Styling dislikes are easily forgiven.
  11. Got it. Thank you Same / similar as the subscribe feature on the pre Sept 18 forum version? Another point - I am not sure which is the least desirable - good reputation, bad reputation or no reputation. Probably no reputation suggesting a Mr beige or Mr bland personality. Worryingly, I appear to have no reputation.
  12. How do you bookmark topics / threads on here?
