Default Almost buying a Gallardo!!!!

Hello,

New to the forum and hopefully if I buy this car, I'll be here more

I've done alot of research so I won't ask dumb questions like e-gear vs 6speed etc...

I have a couple quick questions.
I am close to buying a 2004 Galarado e-gear.
Currently has 14500 Miles, I am getting it checked out by a lamborghini dealer but is there anything I should look out for?

I've attached the 10500 service (clutch was done with "f" package software)
and a bunch of other service/parts done (rear main seal).
He also just had the car at lambo for the 3500 miles service

Please let me know ANYTHING that would help with my purchase,
Thank you so much

Looks like the dealer ripped off the previous owner. Coil packs and plugs at 10k miles? I am gonna guess that was extra beer money for the dealer.

Since work was done two years ago, I would have brake fluid changed, oil changed too.

Look for any oil or coolant leak under the car. Especially where it was parked. Also, look for any errors on the dash and have the odb2 code read. Look over the car for repaint / uneven orange peel and signs of accident in front and back.

Have fun and good luck!

The 2004-07 automatic dimming rearview mirrors are prone to leak corrosive acid. See the attached picture of the damage.

You should consider switching out the auto dimming mirror for a manual one if it has not been done already?

Here is the thread that goes into detail:

It would be interesting to know how much of that clutch is left after 2 years, I'm sure you'll get an eGear snap. Good luck, hope to hear back from you soon.
