    Gallardo alloys. With the right body colour such as Kingfisher Blue or Imola Yellow, they are the dog's danglies!

    assuming the mileage is over 120k, then yes, a rear diff gear oil change is worth doing. Mine came out the colour and consistency of Mellow Birds! Always remove the fill plug first. Takes just under...

    If you're even considering a replacement turbo, wouldn't it be easier doing the job here before you go rather than worrying about what if? Get a transmission gear oil and filter change and renew...

    Worth getting some of the plastic clips too as invariably one or two will break. Undo the Philips screw near the door hinges, then pull the door strip horizontally towards the rear of the car, keep...

    Only time I can remember is when the oil pressure light came on, followed by the 3 audible beeps. I was hauling a boat at the time, and the light and alarm were intermittent. Checked the oil level...

    Nice. I like the colour! Regards rear diff - there's no specific time for an oil change, but at 190k its worth doing in my opinion. Drive it to increase the viscosity of the oil (if it's original...

    Remove the brake carrier, caliper and disc and secure on wire support or bungee cord. You just need to undo driveshaft splined bolts and hub nut, not the hub itself.

    I wouldn't be bothered about considering just sub 100k cars. These cars are now 8+ years old, so the key thing will be servicing and history. Doesn't matter if its been to a main dealer or an...
