Long time lurker, first time poster! :)
 
Hey all!

I joined this forum in 2017 and have been lurking through some of the threads on here and thought it's time to introduce myself! :wave:

I am from the land down under, Australia and have always had an obsession with Lamborghini. I migrated to AUS with my Dad, Mum and little sister from East Africa and remember the first time laid my eye balls on a Grigio Murcielago, crossing an intersection in Sydney CBD. For a good few seconds, my eyes were locked, heart beat rose, hands became clammy and I was completely speechless. The only thing I could utter was ‘Wow.’ That was the defining moment where I knew I wanted a Lamborghini.

I'd call myself a self-confessed car geek and have owned a hand full of vehicles since getting my licence at 17 but nothing in the prestige or exotic area of automotive. I'm now 25 and have had the privilege of owing a few Subaru’s and currently have a 13’ Jeep Wrangler CRD Turbo Diesel. Since I can remember, supercars have always left me in awe because of their performance, technology, ability to push what we know as ‘normal’ and at the same time, evoke overwhelming feelings of joy and excitement to people that experience them. I haven't met a single supercar owner who doesn't love seeing the joy that their car brings to others around them!

So naturally, I logged into this forum and became a member! What I love about this group is just the wealth of knowledge members here have! I love reading through the threads regarding the mighty Aventador and its many quirks and features or about the ferocious and illusive gated LP640 which in my books is one of the most remarkable pieces from Lamborghini.

Now, in regards to what I do... I work in the corporate sector and currently have a pinkie finger in property. What I learnt from an early age is if you want something, there's no substitute for hard work and determination. I am in the process of selling the Jeep which happens to be a dream car of mine to prioritise a few financial commitments. My work is in the IT space and launched a activewear clothing brand in Feb 19 with a goal of breaking 5 figures by the end of 2019. To achieve that, it will and has taken a lot of investment and there is much more work to do! I'm excited about the journey ahead and hope to create something that my fiancé (getting married in Oct) and I can share with others.

In a nutshell, my goal within this forum is to become a member that provides value through sharing info about things that I've learnt through Lamborghini (one day) ownership, forge long term friendships, learn, engage in Lamborghini related topics and really just do life with like-minded people!

Just incase you were wondering.. My choice of weapon is a Lamborghini Aventador SV in Grigio Titans but it’ll be a long journey till it’s in my possession! :blob:

Feel free to shoot me a message if you want to say hi!

Cheers,
Koomz_m

Welcome Koomz!
Aventador is a great choice, it’s the top of the food chain.
I just bought a Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid and absolutely love it. Drive it daily and the Huracan on weekends.
Cheers Russ

Thank you for the warm welcome, Russ!

The Aventador is really one of a kind! There's a few machines out there that can make full grown men giggle like school girls. The Aventador happens to be one of them!

The Crosstek is a great little hatch! The US market were fortunate enough to get the hybrid but us Aussies were allocated just the petrol. Brilliant choice as a daily!

Back in June I decided to swallow my pride and asked my little sister if I can by her 2008 Impreza RS hatch as she had moved to Sydney and just wasn't using it. It's honestly been one of the best cars to move around town in!:D

By the way, I absolutely love your Blu Cepheus Huracan Spyder! :tleft:

Cheers,
Koomz_m

Welcome (officially) to the forum Koomz. Having goals and working towards them is a great motivator. Once you are ready to buy one of these awesome cars, take your time and find the one that talks to you! It is such a wonderful experience. Best of luck to you!!

Absolutely. It's a journey and I'm excited to see how things go moving forwards!

Good luck and welcome. Goal setting is the foundation of success. Set realistic goals, put a timetable on them, enjoy rewards. Lee

I like your story about seeing a Lamborghini for the first time.

When I was a kid, my dad got a huge pile of my grandpa's old Road and Track magazines. I used to browse them and fell in love with the Countach after seeing pictures and performance statistics.

One day, at 15 years old, I was riding in the car with my dad and he blurted out I needed to look at the car next to us. A red Countach had pulled up beside us. My dad slowed down to let him glide by and then followed him for a short while. I was in awe. The car looked even more incredible in person than I could have imagined. I was already a fan, but I will always remember when I saw one in person for the first time. (I even remember the exact patch of road where it happened.)

Hi Lee,

Thank you so much! I complete agree. We all have dreams but until we set goals and lay them out clearly, they'll just remain as dreams :sleepy:

Cheers

I like your story too! That would've been incredible to see the Countach with your own eye balls!! :eek:

That particular model has always been like a mythical creature. Similar to the Centenario or the Veneno. A tiny population have seen them and the smallest fraction have the opportunity to own them.

There's a bloke on youtube called 'Ryfips' and has a Countach 25th,
Countach QV and a number of other gems. They're absolutely stunning. Daily Driven Exotics often have him on their chanel and I think you might enjoy that!

Have a good week mate.

Cheers

Welcome to the club Koomz. I'm from Oz too! And there's a few other guys from Australia as well. Very nice story mate and well-written.

Seeing as your choice of weapon is the big mama Aventador, how about saving up for a Gallardo as your first Lamborghini? Even one of the older ones! There's a few on Carsales at the moment for under $140k.

Get your foot in the door. You'll love the G :)
