Default Advice On a 04 Gallardo 6spd

I submitted a credit app for this car today but I would greatly appreciate some second opinions from some of the members here.

2004 Lamborghini Gallardo 2dr Coupe West Chicago, Illinois | Chicago Motor Cars

The car seems relatively clean but there are some points that raise a concern:

* Service was stopped on the car in 2007 and the car just seemed to float around dealerships for the past 5 years

* Original clutch ( How long do factory clutches typically last again? everyone talks about e-gear)

* Throttle body replaced after 2 years?

The car looks clean in the pictures but you cant always tell from pictures. I really wanted a blue or orange Gallardo but I promised myself that I would settle if I found a car in good shape for the right price.
Just some second opinions would be very welcomed. Thanks

ad says last annual fluid service was 2012. if the clutch is original, it's probably due for a change. an inspection will tell you how much remains.

re how the car was changing hands, i would look into possible accident past, check for paint/orange peel differences, uneven gaps between panels, over spay under the car.

car sounds okay on papers but seeing it in person would be first step, followed by a ppi

I just realized too that this is one of the first 300 demo pool cars :0. I wonder if it would be better to just steer clear of the car?

Looks like a nice car and priced well. Interior is upgraded nicely. I'm sure clutch is due, maybe you throw that into the deal. I wouldn't be worried about the demo thing 8 years later. Get a PPI and enjoy.

Default 04

I had a 04 loved it. Nothing beter than a manual 6 speed. I see in the pics that the drivers side glove box is not closeing. My car did that. Have them fix it its kind of a pain to get out(the side plastic groove that the spring goes in cracks will need new door or glueing)

I have a 04 6spd with 14k miles. Love the car and no issues whatsoever. Had the recall done last month.

Default would bother me

there is a thread about these people on both the nissan and audi forums--sounds a little bit more than i would want to deal with--got your money--whoops sold car-get you same but better at lower price etc--etc---you will need to check your own comfort level on this sort of thing but 30 second search on chicago motor cars found this
