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 peek in my garage and say goodnight to my H before turning on the alarm and going to sleep. It's a habit.

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.
