    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.

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

    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...

    Admiral Multi car insurance renewal

    We were with Admiral multi-car insurance last year but the renewal costs were too high so moved to another provider. Most of my cars are with Footman James on agreed valuation on a multi car/classic policy.

    Buying a GranCabrio advice

    I had my car inspected by Enso Automotive, who are close to Harrogate. They did a thorough job and were always happy to speak and provide good advice.

    Well priced MC Stradale

    Agreed as I struggled to find even a standard GTS in this colour. Please keep me in mind if you acquire something suitable.

    Well priced MC Stradale

    If it was a special colour (for me) such as Blue I would be going to view it. Grey would be my second choice but the Gallardo and the Porsche are Grey too! Also the 5 owners would put me off slightly. Do you think the Stradale experience is worth the additional expenditure? I have the Gallardo...

    Well priced MC Stradale

    I want one but with four seats and not in black, white or red :f7:. I love the colour combination on my GTS so not sure if its worth the upgrade. I should really go and try one.
