It's only been 1 week since i put in my order for the Huracan EVO... actually not even that long. Those who had to wait for their special order, how do you fill the time? I find myself watching all the videos, reading up all the reviews, just obsessing. Mid-July feels like an eternity from now!

(not sure if this was the right place to post this, sorry in advance!)

Mine took over 7 months and after I placed it I just tried to forget about it, but that is not easy. I didn't really start going nuts till it was down to about 4 weeks out, then I started buying things for it. I bought lots of little gadgets and carbon fiber pieces, clean the garage and stuff like that. This forum was a huge help. It always to have others sharing the same excitement. Mid July is right around the corner.

I wasted a week stalking all the PS5 restocks until I finally got one at Target... Watched a lot of YouTube car videos...

Congratulations. I agree with Russ in that my patience seemed to change in different phases. Similar to you, I was so excited a week or so out, but eventually I came back down to Earth. The worst period for me was the last 4 - 6 weeks. At that point, the car was fabricated and was literally inching its way to me.

Patience is a virtue........I know that sounds like BS to me as well. :rolleyes: I wasn't willing to wait 5 to 7 months so what I did, I heard the Charlotte Dealership was getting three 2021 EVOs in December so I called early November and they sent me the Spec sheets and I picked the one I wanted. Said EVO arrived at the dealership in December and the rest is history. So my wait was a little over a month.
If you are going to do a PPF I would ferret out a good installer and avoid the dealership installer. It's axiomatic that dealership installers do a subpar job but, then again, they make up for it by overcharging.

Thanks for the input here, at least now I have something to keep me busy. Looking for the insurance for my scenario - I live in a condo I own in SF. Apparently a lot of these specialty insurance companies require "four private walls + lock and key" around my new vehicle. We have a private parking structure underneath our building, as do most places in SF where dedicated parking comes at a premium. Any thoughts or advice here? I find it odd that there isn't an option for those of us that live in a city and likely have the same type of parking type.

Have you tried looking for a garage space to rent that is both reasonably close to your condo and reasonably priced. Though, reasonably priced and SF don't go together all that well. My wife and I lived in SF for 4 years in the early 80s.

While there are plenty of spots to rent, they're all the same as what I currently have. I haven't yet seen many options that are "4 walls with lock and key", unless perhaps I rent someone's single car garage? But that's not really ideal considering I have my own parking downstairs, which is most definitely more secure considering my building + area I live in. But I suppose I should keep an open mind.

Alternatively - I can keep it at my GF parents house in Los Gatos, but that's even less ideal for all the reasons you can think.

I couldn't stand not having my car at my home where I live. You need to find an insurance company that will take care of you and treat you fairly given you parking conditions. You don't want you car at a remote location. Sometimes you just like to look at it, but it needs to be where you are. If you haven't already give State Farm a shot. Good luck

@scriptgeeky, agree, option B is not just less desirable but, in fact, completely undesirable. That could go sideways quite easily..........

I wonder if there is a vaccine for the dreaded Lamborghini anticipation......if not something needs to be done otherwise we will lose to many good people.

Isn't that the truth!
When I got my first bull I would find myself in the garage more total hours in the first three months than I actually spent on the road lol. I'd hop in the seat clicking through menu's, clicking through the radio, some cold starts in disbelief I finally had one lol

A couple of notes right off the bat, having spent the better part of the weekend driving it all over the bay area.
  • The acceleration in even just sport mode, and only lightly, good lord! I thought the R8 was fast, my god this thing is insane.
  • Every detail inside is just beautiful
  • That sound, the pops / crackling, will just never get use to it - it's incredible
  • I thought the attention would be similar to the Elise, no dice, this is like 10x. On a left turn Saturday morning a 2yr old kid nearly broke his neck staring at the car as I went around the corner. Smiles and thumbs up everywhere, and the occasional wanting to chat with you while at a stop light
  • Sound system - junk. But driving this car you really don't care all that much.
  • Street mode is more comfortable than you'd imagine but less comfortable than the r8. Also, a ton more road noise than the R8
I'm literally looking for every opportunity to drive it, if even down the street to the Marina green to grab some Philz for the 3rd time that day. lol!

If you're in the Bay Area, shoot me a PM, would be great to do a scenic drive / cars + coffee.
