    You can get aftermarket kits which do it, but most of them are aweful!

    I hate the colour and think it dates the car, but that said there's no escaping the fact it's an epic motor.

    Not trying to light a fire, but you do see the car is an 08 plate right?

    There's plenty of cars on the road that have been recently released with bright colours - Porsche for example and they all look fantastic. As does this Lambo.

    Defintely an epic motor though. Would never get tired of the sound.

    Lambo should be bright, it's the law. Supercars in dull colours have a special designation....

    Flipper spec.

    Well that's probably because my parents first house was 5grand while their income was £20k between them, kids now have to buy the same house for 280k on 30k a year, it's hard.

    To be fair they did have 15% interest rates for a lot of their life too.

    Yep I get it’s an 2008 car and appreciate more modern muscle are being released in loud colours, I think it’s perhaps the shade of yellow that isn’t helping? Not sure...


    I agree, I love the greens for example but I personally don’t like this shade of yellow. It probably goes back to when my parents were poor and my dad bought a yellow Ford Cortina which seems a similar shade to this lambo.

    At 29, ten years ago, my wife and I paid £280K for our first house (With just over 100k deposit). Whilst I agree youngsters have it harder, I think if your focused enough, it can be done. We did it and we can’t be the only ones.

    Look ace. Does that plate really block the complete lower air intake?
