    Hi Robin,

    Welcome back, great to see you’re back in the game! I hope all is well and a little rest from the idiots on here has served you well, your input and wisdom has been missed.

    All the best.

    Would like to thank everyone for the positive feedback on this and the views it is appreciated.

    In an interesting twist a friends uncle owns a gallardo and I had a chat to him about it he honestly and openly told me his pet hates and regrets and said I can take it for a spin when the circumstances change.

    his biggest gripe was the driving position being slightly off centre so something for me to consider.

    After speaking to him I am leaning towards the Ferrari side (seems to be the cutter preference)

    Thank you, and it’s great to see you back.

    One positive I can take is I’m not fussed by a “red” Ferrari I am actively looking at black, blue, grey versions so what you say would play massively in my favour potentially.

    Great attitude....subscribed!

    I’d be tempted by a MT 360. Didn’t pre 2009/10 Gallardo’s have some questionable reliability probs. May be wrong...I’m no expert....but read it on the internet somewhere lol

    You may have thought about already but you'll need a good local specialist to maintain the car. For this type of car it's usually helpful to speak to a car dealer that sells both these cars and can advise on costs, weaknesses, things to look out for before buying.

    Gallardo or 360 Ferrari. Both are great imo. V8 and V10, all boils down to the condition and reliability.

    If you are going for older Gallardo then you need to get the cats replaced, that’s the main issue. The LP Gallardos are easier to live with and better performance. I would only go for the manual transmission in this era.
    My friends with Ferraris and Lambos find generally Lambos seem to be much more reliable with the German influence.
    It’s worth speaking to AV Engineering if you are considering a 360/430 as they are very knowledgeable.

    I've been thinking in a similar way... but I'm saving up to walk into the Porsche stealers and spec a new 911. I've got a while to collect the green and convince the missus. :D

    Congrats buddy

    One of the best cars I've driven was a 911 turbo, Porsche has always been one of my favourite brands! I just have that Italian itch to scratch.

    Best of health to enjoy it mate

    Seen that name mentioned a few times now, a YouTube fella also bought his from there and they are not a million miles from me so will drop them a mail.

    Thanks
