I really need help. Can someone tell me whats the problem with this place. Is it that i can buy a car form them, but do not have them service. Or, just buy the car from some place else, and have do the service. I have gotten a few quotes on say a oil change. I have found a place in the Hollywood area off Pembroke Road that services lambos, (had 3 lambo in the same bay). If any south florida guys have any input on this, it will be greatly appreciated :confused:

I typed a long reply to this, is was up for maybe a day before the site crashed, and now it's no longer here. Don't go there for sales or service. They are the major reason for people having a bad Lambo experience in Florida. Call Tropical Sports Car Center in Fort Lauderdale ask for Steve Claassen (he is the owner) and tell him Tony from Naples gave you his #.

If it makes you happy go ahead and try Prestige and let us know how it goes.
Maybe we are all wrong ;)

You dont have to get the car from someone local. These are not Hondas. You have to get it from the right place and person. You shouldnt rush something like this either

For new Lambo's call Ultimate Lamborghini in Orlando, ask for Kurt Osterman head of sales or Monte Patterson sales manager. Again say Tony from Naples sent you. They sponsor the Lamborghini Owners Club and pay for the trophies given out at Itaiafest. They also have LOC discounts in parts and service. You will find that in Florida, from Orlando to Palm Beach to Miami to Naples, we the owners are a tight group and take care of each other. If you don't have a car by January, come to Itailafest in Delray Beach. Ultimate comes every year and bring 4-8 new Lambo's depending on their inventory, and Kurt and Monte are there the whole weekend and give test drives to real buyers.

Tony Lambo's reply is spot-on, and his advice is sound -- Kurt and/or Monte at Ultimate will treat you right...and they are some of the nicest guys in the Lambo biz you'll meet!

Let me know if I can be of help also. I am actually ordering some of my 2005 stock right now and would be happy to slot you in. The guys in Orlando are great and we trade cars often when we need what the other has. If there is anything that I can do to help you have an excellent experience I will, even if that means suggesting someone other than me. Just out of curiousity, where "exactly" do you live? If you are outside of 100 miles from a dealer, anyone can and will help you. I have more than several clients in Boca, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Naples (coincidentally, where I am from) that I could give you as reference to either myself or Ultimate.

All of this helps, really it does. I am not in a rush,for about 8-10 months i have been researching to the extant that i can print a full book. I live near the Pro-Player stadium. I will be getting another home with like a two-car garage for the lambo. About 2 months ago, Ron from prestge took for a test drive in 6-speed. I think he babyed the car. When went back, he was no longer there, which at that point, i was ready for a test drive in a e-gear, that when i came too this forum. :wave:

It’s best to take your time like you are doing. You can never be over prepared to purchase a car like this. Take your time and make the right choice.

BAD experience with Prestige!!!!!!!!!

I have purchased dozens and dozens of unique cars. Prestige is by far, the worst experience I have ever had! I bought a 'PRISTINE' Murci from them, had it delivered to me in Calif, and it was completely electrically dead...all electrical systems were burnt out!... they couldn't even start it to get it off the truck!!! It arrived with lots of body damage, and since it was dead, it had to go directly to another (local) Lambo dealer, where it spent 200 out of the next 240 days in service replacing just about everything. It is still unrepaired, undriveable, and ....well, what a mess. Prestige has left me high and dry....Lambo sits in storage. Barely even starts and runs! What a shame!

And so what help have I gotten from Prestige?...........""ZIP. once they get your cash, I think they remove your name from the rolodex!!!! I would suggest not paying cash to them...or better yet, buy elsewhere.

Think I will get a Ferrari next time.

Anyone interested in low miles Murci...cheap???/ Needs Repair.
And if anyone is thinking of buying a Lambo from Prestige, call me. Or better yet, pick up a 2 x 4 and smack yourself in the forehead!

.....well, THAT does it for me. Add one more dealer to the 'don't touch with 10 foot pole' list... What a sad story. Prestige should go straight to dealer hell. :mad:

If it's a new car the price may dictate where you buy. However, under no circumstance should you consider a used car from them.

They are all dogs. This comes from an owner/member of many cars, including Porsche, Ferrari and Lambo. When looking for a Lambo they would not allow me to do a PPI! Jose Conseco(sp?) is in litigation with them right now over a used car warranty they will not honor. It goes on and on...

Even parts is a nightmare. I do a little of my own work and their pricing is higher than other dealers. Once, I needed a simple door switch and they had to order it. They would not take a credit card over the phone and told me I would have to come down and pay for it in person before they ordered the part. I called Ultimate and had the part in my hand the next day via FedEx.

I've just started using LamboAtlanta for parts...I prefer them over Ultimate. Jim over there went beyond the call to help me with a part and a service bulletin I was not aware of. Little things like that builds customer loyalty.

After warranty - there is a new shop in MIA and 2 excellent ones in Ft Laud. I have some issues with shop you mentioned (Murray)..
