    Congratulations. Great advice here since I started my search for the GTS.

    STRADALE WANTED

    The LP cars drive better and they are very different feel to a Strad, mainly due to the size and power delivery. The gated manual mated to 560bhp V10 is fun! I am waiting for the right Strad to come along for sale.

    STRADALE WANTED

    I am biased but the Gallardo is great, even an old Gallardo spyder faired well on the recent edition of Top gear. I would only go for the improved facelift LP cars with more power though!

    GranTurismo Stradale wheels

    I have a set of neptunes with winter tyres currently and was considering getting the stradale wheels fitted with the summer tyres. Do people tend to swap tyres, rather than wheels for winter?

    GranTurismo Stradale wheels

    How much do they normally sell for? I am considering putting the summer tyres on a set of stradale alloys, to be used in the spring. Thanks

    Alternative to a GranCabrio

    Maybe try an Alpina B4 or B6 cab.

    Oops, I did it again - Another Granturismo MC-Shift

    Looks like I need to get the X pipe fitted. I will get the Larini one ordered soon.

    GranTurismo's are getting cheap!

    I think the GT prices has fared pretty well. I had this mad idea to upgrade my Gallardo (manual LP560) to a Huracan Performante and viewed a lovely specced one in Verde Hydra. This Performante has dropped £100k in two years and 8000 miles.

    I am tempted to fit a X-pipe. Which make do people go for and is it just louder or different tone? Its hard to gauge from the online videos.

    The facelift cars do look much better IMO. It just needs spacers!

    Granturismo and short journeys

    I have to admit with certain nicer cars, if its a short journey then I make sure the engine oil temp is nicely warmed up and take a longer detour if necessary. I don’t use my cars for commuting so it’s easier to do.

    Few updates for my Granturismo

    A little update, the H&R spacers are fitted thanks to Dale and the stance is so much better. I don't think I will lower the car as the front are already feels low. It currently has winter boots on the neptune wheels. I am wondering if I should get a set of Stradale wheels for the spring rather...
