Has some minor issues which I am attending to, bought at a wholesale lot, totally on a whim, saw it, decided to check it out, 5 min test drive then bought it, biggest issue is a bit of rust in a few small spots, but it runs and shifts flawlessly! So far I am loving it, coming from many modified cars especially lowered cars this thing rides like a cloud!

A very well maintained UL that was purchased in 2005 by Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, CA to use as a "mini-limo". Interior like new, body an easy 9/10, well maintained and still drives like new. I have owned many air suspension cars and even a GMC RV with rear air suspension so there is no fear there on my part. The car has had two timing belt changes and has been driven well throughout its life. I am owner number three.

One owner, few scratches on bumper, about 5-6 small hail dents. Passenger side window motor is dying, and smart key works partially. It can lock and unlock with the clicker on the key and can start car without using the key in ignition, but cannot lock or unlock from the door handle button.

Nice find Rickochet. Looks clean. Might want to try changing the battery in the FOB if you haven't already. Easy to do with online instructions/manual.
What is that hidden in the garage behind the Lexus?

I wish that was my garage, the Gallardo belongs to seller who has a garage full of other toys (motorcycles, sports cars, classics)

Great shape, a few days of detailing and doing the scheduled maintenance has it running and looking like new. Hoping to get 2-3 years, 40-60K miles out of it. Based on everything I read while researching this model, I think I should be able to get at least that much.

Really glad there’s still an active forum for these cars, speaks to their reliability.
