So after getting rid of my Huracan last February I am coming back. Never been a big Ferrari fan but after 3 years with the Huracan was time to move on and bought a 488 mainly cause I liked the color. Car was ok just never felt the same connection to it that I felt with my Huracan. Have wanted a Spyder and this one came into a local dealership and the color was right so I had to buy. And good thing I kept my plate, I think I always knew I would be back in a Lamborghini :)

Here are the specs, seems to be pretty loaded and pretty close to how I would of ordered, I would have gone with sport seats since after sitting in Huracan Spyder with regular seats my head was touching the roof, I found I had plenty of room in Evo Spyder with Sports seats but until today had never sat in an Evo Spyder with these seats but found I had more room than I did in Huracan? Did they make changes in Evo?

Wow Blu! When you said loaded you meant it! What a beautiful car. I have to ask, please tell me about the stock exhaust note. Loud enough? How does it compare to your old Huracan?

Thanks, I didnt drive car but it seemed very loud when I accelerated it, I would say better than my Huracan was stock but not as loud as with the fabspeed I put on. Since mine was a 2015 it had the more pops and bangs and truthfully I had gotten tired of it so don't mind it toned down a bit. Will be picking up tomorrow so will give you a better report on sound, but from my brief time in it today I think I make be able to avoid changing it.

Thanks Blu, I can't wait to hear more. And congratulations on getting a Spyder, the best of both worlds, you are going to love it. Love the Diamond cut rims, I ordered the same ones on my new one. I am also going back to Alcantera, it just looks so rich. Just gotta to take good care of the steering wheel so it doesn't show wear.

I wont have to be careful as I'm already looking for a new wheel. Since car has all the forged carbon fiber I will go with one with that and perforated leather. Have been going through your thread to try and learn some stuff since this was rather sudden and I;'m not really up on the Evo. What does the smart phone interface consist of?

Lol, you asked the only question that I can't answer. No one knows yet. You might be the first to explain it. All I know is I had to take that option for some others to be added.

Yes, I noticed that but you got it and it could be good for resale. That was one of the only options al0ng with ambient lighting that I didn’t get. I don’t track and I don’t drive at night.

I had a feeling you would come back Scott, you never seemed as enthusiastic about the 488. Blu sideris looks fantastic. I dig the Superman color combo with the red interior and the forged carbon fiber trim. Aesir rims are my favorite and the spec looks loaded. Buying a Spyder in the middle of November in Mass. at least you got the AWD. I think you will be happy with the heated seat option for cold weather driving.

Questions what's the ad personam exterior option?

Did GGT go up from 1300 to 2100?

I see the telemetry package but not see the hard disk with memory option. without it telemetry is useless. perhaps person who configured it had not much clue.

Thanks, hoping to get in a few drives before I need to put away. Yea looks like GGT is now $2,100. And not sure what the that ad personam option is? Usually I would have done more research on a car but this all happened really fast so have a lot to learn about the Evo. Once I get car home this afternoon will try and figure out what it might be. I saw Russ had a build sheet on the the Evo RWD in his thread, anyone have one for the AWD?

From trying to find an answer on that looks like you use it with your phone? At least that is way it worked with Aventador

Congratz Blu!! The new lambo blue is really eye popping in person. Can't wait to see your mods this time around. At least you got the full forged carbon.

Personally I love alcantara steering wheel. I would ding up my leathers real easily on accident from my nails or my wedding band.

The smart phone interface is your apple car play. I don't know if they do android auto.

The new EVO has a really nice note stock. It should be very similar to the performante

Alcantara actually wears just fine. I had that initial reservation as well but after having it in my last few cars, that's the way to go for me.
