I'm sorry you might think this a stupid question or you may even hate me for asking it. But didn't you know all this before purchasing the Lambo in the first place? Even though I don't really stay in India, I still feel that it's impossible to drive an exotic such as a Lambo, Ferrari, GTR, etc.

LP is not even a year old! And your selling it! What will replace the LP?

Jesus christ . I am THINKING of selling it . I may even not sell it . @krazyking , I did not even see the LP in real life . I had not been been or seen or heard a Lamborghini in my life. I bought it on instinct . And no , I would most likely not sell it . Just a thought shared with friends here , so every one , relax.

its all good guys - calm down :-) we aren't losing this lambo yet.
@ecks - you were talking about taking on modding the LP (exhaust n stuff) once done with M3, so I guess you won't really sell it :-)

You can tell him that you're getting a good price on it, as well as your 997.

Wow. I'm sorry, but I'm really shocked to hear this. From what I've been hearing you seem to do research and everything on your car, so I thought you would've done the same for the Lambo. Because I've been following your thread about the mods on the M3 you're making and you seem to have a lot of knowledge of you're up to. Maybe this is just for the M3.

Haha wow! Three exotics just for you, you are really lucky! Any particular reason why you want to get the Turbo? Why not a Japanese import, like the GTR? Or the Maserati GT?

Sorry if I sound like a prick.

I remember him saying that he would only buy an exotic only if it has a good service backup in India. Probably that's the reason why he doesn't have the GT-R in his garage yet!

Yes , I did a lot of research for the M3 before buying it and then when modifying it .
And don't be silly brother , ask me what ever you like . I don't have a GTR or Maser yet due to the lack of service back up . But as has been proven to me now , even cars with service back up(Lamborghini) don't get serviced properly . Hence the decision to get a 997 face lifted Turbo .

The 2010 997 Turbo hits the showrooms in India by the end of this year. If I place an order soon , I may be getting one of the first models in India.
