Hey everyone👋🏻

So hopefully about to buy my first Lambourghini Gallardo this weekend, been watching out and have seen one I like. Its an orange LP560-4 Spyder with just over 30k on the clock, 2011 year.

Before committing to the asking price I have requested a clutch reading be done, I have priced a new clutch labour and parts from Lambo and its came back at £7500, so just want to make sure there is at least 50% left on the clutch before purchase. Is it only lambo that can do this reading, or can ex lambo mechanics do this?

I've been reading up and I believe 2010 onwards is the best as this is when audi took over. The one I have seen has the reversing camera and also front lift. I'm 29 at the end of the month, I work for myself and I have managed to save up enough & also took some finance to purchase the car, really looking forward to hopefully getting it this weekend and maybe even get out a couple of times before the bad weather.

Just looking for some advice really, when I view the car is there anything I should be looking out for? and also looking for your positive stories as well! I'm buzzing and can't wait, my house cost less than what I'll be paying for this car, but my minds made up, you only live once!

Thanks in advance!

Congrats. I was 31 when I bought my first Lambo. Absolutely zero regrets.

Regarding the clutch, keep in mind they tend to wear faster the farther down in life you get. Also, you can't really "take it to zero" before you need a new one so I would make sure you have a plan for eventual replacement.
