Just joined the Lambo owner's club! Took delivery of an '08 Gallardo Spyder late last night. Too bad there's a foot of snow on the ground. 馃様 It's going to be hard to resist taking it out all weekend anyway. 馃槒

Nice, love the color. You'll have a blast come spring. Pretty new myself, I got mine this past April. Congrats.

Congrats!

Minimize reverse especially up hill.

Always drive in manual and sport to extend clutch life.

Know the proper oil level check procedure.

Enjoy the smiles per gallon!

Congrats. You bought the twin to mine. I even had the black rims with the yellow trim but took them in and had them repainted to the stock Lambo silver color. Will be a long winter coming out to the garage every day making vroom vroom sounds waiting for the snow to melt and the roads to dry up. 馃槃馃槃

Congratulations! I must say I don鈥檛 miss the cold weather at all living up north my whole life. 65 and sunny in the south about to go for a blast now. Enjoy the car finally got mine back up and running and love every second of it.

congratulations

don't let the excitement wear off
but, this time of year, with that power, the tires will never heat up to give your traction. be careful not to let the over exuberance outlweigh practicality.

Great looking car. If you can, just take it out and melt some snow with some revs. I have to say it again, the Gallardo is epic! It still looks like something modern and up to date with its timeless design.

Thanks for the tip. Is it even possible to get winter or all-season tires in this size? I couldn't find any on Tire Rack.

Congrats on the car! I got my first G about 6 months ago, so I'm new to the club as well (already put about 2500 miles on the car).

I asked about all season tires as well. Lamborghini Charlotte told me you can get winter tires that are specifically designed for snow/slush, but it isn't an "all-season." Seems like performance or winter are the options, but you might find otherwise. Enjoy your G -- there's nothing quite like it.

Oh the excitement! Beautiful example. Welcome! To the forum and the club! Winter tires certainly exist.

Be careful out there
