  1. Having owned a 91 and 92, I loved them during the honeymoon phase, but the clutch is super heavy, I don't like not having power steering, $5k rear axle break job was painful (couldn't find rotors and had to rebuild rear calipers). So after that happened I started looking into finding other parts and realized how hard parts can be to find. So I decided it wasn't for me. For the analog experience I much prefer my Ford GT. Parts can be tricky to find but they're out there, and basically zero repairs needed anyways... But I get your desire for the early diablo and TR, no doubt. I met my hero and was let down. My 98 SV was twice or three times more fun to drive as well, but still had the lingering concern of what happens when it needs major repairs or even minor repairs. I drive my cars too much to worry about that issue. My GT has 43k trouble free miles! Would be hard pressed to do that in a diablo. With all that said, I want another diablo lol. But now I own more cars so it would need to see so many miles. The black 99 SV Roy Cats has is right up my alley, but boy is he proud of it! Can't say I blame him...
  2. What's it like owning a 360 CS amongst the rest of your stable? I've always wanted one, and have a hard time justifying the cost sometimes for what it is. But they keep calling out to me!
  3. I had the same type of thing. I used Lexington Law. Took a few months but it ended up getting cleaned up...
  4. Some of you have probably seen the blk/blk 6sp Murci on Autotrader. Has had a major engine out 1000 miles ago but back in 2014. What am I up against buying an 02 Murci? Decently robust car I imagine, but curious of everyone’s thoughts. I remember Roy telling me years ago that the 03 Murci was the most reliable of the first gen Murci’s but can’t remember why. Also, what do you think the car should be bought for? He’s asking $189k which I think is a little strong. I figured I need to be in the 160’s. Has around 17k miles...
  5. About the same results I had racing my buddies Novotech tuned 720. I have a UGR car and raced him on my 91 tune (about 900whp). I put 4 cars on him before 120-130mph
  6. Do you have a favorite, Allan? As far as driving goes... and favorite overall?
  7. I do think it'll be a partial dd alongside my TTH. The S definitely seems to have more draw for what I'm looking for...
  8. Can't blame you there. I'm just the opposite. My favorite of those three happens to be the S. And I wouldn't complain about owning any of the above either!
  9. Wow, better than the SV...That's saying something. Looks like my next step needs to be to go drive one. If my new Ford GT application gets declined which most likely it will, I'll probably plan on an S. I need a car with all of the theatrics... Doesn't get much better!
  10. I posted this somehow as a guest, so thought I'd make it actually under my log in... Seems like there’s only $100k in difference between the 2012 Aventador and 2017 S now. That gap will close, and 5-10 years from now, what do you think the difference will be? I figure $50k or so... so cost to own a ‘17 over the ‘12 is only $50k less repairs the ‘12 will have that the ‘17 won’t? Considering one or the other. ‘12’s and their quirks/potential issues don’t bother me much. The thing that makes me want a 2017 are the rear wheel arches (love em) and the AWS... warranty/repairs don’t bother me on a ‘12. A ‘13 isn’t out of the question and I don’t see the point in spending more money on a ‘14-‘16. Just thinking out loud here... thoughts? Also, I’ll put 30-40k miles on it pretty easily. All of my cars get driven daily. So maybe there’s only an $80k difference in a low mile 12 and 17...
  11. Couldn’t agree more. 488 is a snooze fest...
  12. With what you stated above/pics, get an FF. Value is almost incomparable, and it seems you enjoy that aspect and I totally get that! The FF I drove blew my mind. The black and red FF's above are SICK... Makes me want to reconsider one:)
  13. As said above, what are the traits you want out of a car, what kind of driving do you do, and how often do you drive it? Assuming it'll continue to be utilized in place of the Huracan though, I'd consider a 720s or Aventador S. As crazy as it is to say, there's really just not enough options out there. Last questions, what's your budget, and does depreciation bother you too much?
  14. What’s your overall impression of the S over the older Aventador?
  15. Just do what they do at the track and wet it down in front of the back tires and do a rolling burnout... Wouldn't require a 5k launch...
  16. That’s awesome you’ve had the car so long! Enjoy in good health! Plugs on a vert are definitely more of a pain... my local shop charges me 4 hours.

    Discount Diablos

    Messaged him on eBay, called, and texted. No response. I don’t understand some people... I’m sure Roy will end up with them.
  18. This is absolutely the case! People just can’t fathom it until they experience it. Enjoy in great health!
  19. So gorgeous! Congrats again! I think I prefer the soft top as well. On the ferrari and Mclaren the crease across the top KILLS it for me!
  20. Makes me nervous for the drivers... Prayers going out to all!
  21. Lots of V10 options under $90k. R8 is going to feel a lot more modern. Gallardo is raw and has much more of a soul in my opinion. Not that it matters to me, but the wow factor in my experience is 5x more in the Gallardo than the R8. That might sway you towards the R8 if you don't like the attention. An early Gallardo with Tubi or several others exhausts sound about as good as any exotic out there imo. My 04 Gallardo I had for 5 years and literally never even had a check engine light. Replaced the plugs, kept up with maintenance and had to do a clutch and brakes both around 30k miles. Was the best car I've ever owned and I've owned dozens of cars like most here...Good luck with your search!
