Sad but true. Finally let my beast go. It was a sad day. Actually went to the dealership the next day to see it. Well what can I say. The E60 comes sometime next year I guess. Till then I have THIS to keep me amused.
lol thanks guys. Didn't mean to sound sad, I'm actually excited. The Gallardo gets delivered next week sometime, can't wait. It;s just that I've driven lots of great cars but my M5 was still my favorite. It was also my first really great car so i guess it's a sentimental issue too.
It’s true - one sad day :sad1:. I so got used to my M5 that I’m not sure when or even if I at all will sell it and replace it with new generation M5. Something E39 M5 has magical, classical versus moderate M5 which up till know except 507 bhp engine did not catch my attention and desire at all ??????
I love the looks of the Gallardo. A lot sharper and cleaner than the Murcielago.
Parting with a car you love is always tough, even when trading up. If you get depressed, feel regretful emotions or anything, just drive the Lambo around a little, and I think it will go away. :haha:
thanks guys...can't wait now. Taking them ages to get it delivered! Going nuts here! Am I still invited to the board? and to meets? also have the Bentley Flying Spur being delievered end of this year. Can't wait for that either, just picked out the color/options yesterday.
Here's more pics....
Of course you are still welcome at the board! This is an enthusiast site that happens to be geared for M5's, but that doesnt mean it excludes others. Having a long term board member with something a fancy as a Gallardo is wonderful!
I dont have an M5 either (student loans instead), but I have gone to meets and I still kick around this place. It's what you bring and share, not what you have keys to. Look forward to hearing a full report on that Lambo when you get it!
I've said it once and I'll say it again; Gallardos are just downright sexy!
Pissed...after paying a premium for transporting the Gallardo from California to NY and after being given multiple assurances that it will be here before this weekend...(delivery date was last tuesday)...the trucker calls yesterday saying he's still in florida....dropping other cars and won't get here till after memorial day. I hate these guys! Another lonely weekend.
I've had a few cars shipped before, and it is always a PITA. One was a broken Jetta GLI and not a new Lambo, so the wait wasnt as bad. Sorry to hear about the delay, but she'll be there soon enough.
