My understanding as well. And German cars better than Italian.

Gallardos are nice, go for it! Ferraris are NOT anymore reliable than any Lambo recent made after 2001, since Audi took them over and will most likely never be For one, You can drive a Lambo all year long! Most Ferraris you cannot, the newer Models are starting to get more comfy and reliable, im talking about the 599, 458 Italia and FF. The F430 isnt bad neither in terms of reliability To prove my point. This orange Lambo, Simon George's covered 210,000 miles with more than 80k miles on the track, driven by random people His white LP640 has A LOT as well, can't recall, i'll look around, i think close to 100K miles though.

Ya, but how much did he spend in maintenance over 210k miles? Or did he not follow recommended maintenance schedule if not much was done?

I remember a top gear episode wherein they took out some old "supercars" to test out how much horsepower they produced, and they put out FAR less than they originally did.

What a waste.

lols damn.

Yeah, you're not going to touch a 993 GT2 for used Gallardo prices. You're looking at $300K+ for the Porsche - more than a new Gallardo.

As production Porsches go, that model is probably top 5, maybe top 3 for desirability (959 and 550 are probably the only two clearly ahead, then it's a debate between the 356 Speedster Carrera, Carrera GT, and 993GT2).

obtw...buy the Gallardo if you must, but don't sell the 993. That car is one of the best evar and you'll regret it

Well, its a nearly 400K car, so dont expect it to be cheap, but $10k is to 400K, what $10 dollars is to $400 bucks. so its quite fair to me. Here is what i was able to dig up In UK prices when the car hit 44k miles. only Major problem he had was the crankshaft Date acquired:\t September 2004 Total mileage:\t 44,658 Duration of test:\t 34 months Average consumption:\t 10.0mpg Servicing costs:\t £18,425 (2004: £375, 2005:£5,300, 2006: £6,300, 2007: £6,450) Consumables:\t £500 (two clutches), £7,264 (eight sets of Pirellis), £1,500 (Tarox brake discs), £2,800 (eight sets of pads), £11,580 (replacement crankshaft), £1,000 (other) Price new:\t ΂£172,655 Depreciation:\t ΂£87,655

There has to be a 0 missing there. Maybe two 0's. NFW a Gallardo clutch is £250. I don't think you could replace a Honda Civic clutch for £250.

Did anyone else laugh at this...? "A mere 12k pound crankshaft was the only problem"

I'm determined to live this life one day.
