Default Learning Murcielago

Having only spent time in vintage (pre Countach) Lamborghini, I am now ready to learnt sumpthin bout modern Lamborghini.
I intimately know Webers, Marelli, Fiamm, Carello, Bosch, Campagnolo, Borrani, 24 valve engines and the rest of the lot, but i am not finding those components on the Murci.

Can i expect to purchase a used, say 15,000 mile, Murcielago with egear and maintain all aspect myself?
It appears the Murci clutch is a big issue. What concerns me most is the electronics.

Murci engine or transmission removal, teardown, mechanical repair, reinstall would be an easy fix for me.......but i have not dealt with EFI.

What is the "auto/error1234/etc" button set in some Murci?
Thanks

That is on the '02-'04 cars, Koni adjustable suspension. Basically adjusts the firmness of the suspension (same as Diablo) and when it fails it goes into the most aggressive mode. Quite a few write ups on how to repair the system faults.

I too am an early Ferrari guy who does all their own work. I'm currently in the middle of an engine out service (extended because of my travel schedule) and have found the Lambo no different than any other old Italian car. Engine bay access is not bad and the drivetrain is very robust and reliable. Remember it is the same basic engine dating back to the Miura.

As far as the EFI goes realistically unless something breaks (which is incredibly rare) then it is a maintenance free assembly.

The clutch on a manual car is pretty straightforward (although very expensive for what it is) and if you have E-Gear then you will want to invest in a computer to read the ECU or make friends with someone who has one. The E-gear is the main assembly you will tied to a computer for and everything else can primarily be diagnosed manually.
