i think so. especially if you do the fabricating your self it has to be cheaper BUT it will never be a true lambo with out the Lambo plant stamp so there is give and take
User avatar #68 to #67 - navywannabe (06/18/2013) [-]
Well then see you in 17 years...but I really don't care about a plant stamp. Hear me out first. Imagin saying "I built this my self." A car that does 120, built by your own hands (minus the fact that parts come from the factory.)
If you really wanted to go out; I would assume that you could get a stamp on Ebay or their website.
User avatar #69 to #68 - csonosky (06/18/2013) [-]
no no no no the stamp is a seal saying it was manufatured by Lambo and is road tested to meet there demands and Dynoded (spelling lol) in at the hp lambo wants. Now that being said i would make a car my self (im actually in the process) but not a lambo i am making min original. but to his is own

Lol, but there's nothing wrong with a v6 six speed manual engine with plenty of aftermarket support modifications done to it.
User avatar #147 to #146 - swimmingprodigy (06/18/2013) [-]
but....why put all that effort into a Tiburon? No offense but it's not that great of a car.

I have pretty much the same thing with my V6 Nissan Altima, but if I had the skill/ability/resources to put swap an engine and transmission I'd do an LS1-swapped Miata or RX-7.
User avatar #148 to #147 - CyrilKeir ONLINE (06/18/2013) [-]
Simply put, because I love the body styling. It suits my needs just fine, and I love the way it looks. I'm not really looking to set any speed records, and I've never taken it to the track. I'm 6'4" tall, my options for 2 door coupes are pretty limited because of how long my stupid legs are. lol.

I can fit in it, and I love the way it looks. That's why.
#149 to #148 - swimmingprodigy (06/18/2013) [-]
fair enough. I like how you didn't automatically brand me a hater and flame me. Good answer.

I think my next car (in 2 or 3 years) is going to be a C5 Corvette simply because by that time theyre going to be pretty damn cheap (probably 12-17k considering you can get them now for 14-19k) and theyre fast, look great, fantastic drivetrain that will run forever, and I've always liked big V8s.. What about you? Do you plan on sticking with the Tiburon for a long while?
#151 to #149 - CyrilKeir ONLINE (06/18/2013) [-]
Plus their interior is to die for.
#150 to #149 - CyrilKeir ONLINE (06/18/2013) [-]
I don't like assuming people are out to be hateful until they've proven to be so.

Nice pick, but aren't the roads already littered with corvettes? You'll never get someone pulling up along side you on the road shouting out their window "What car is that?!" in a corvette... (had that happen last week. lol) The big v8 does sound nice though. Can't blame ya there!

Honestly, I'm not 100% sure. I'm really picky with what I do and don't like in a car, as far as looks and reliability. The Tiburon fits my "style" of likes on both ends, so I do plan on keeping it for a while. On the other hand, I'm really diggin' the power that comes from the 3.8 Lambda engine that the Genesis Coupes have, and their body style is somewhat similar to the Tiburons. Just with more power A lot more.
#153 to #150 - swimmingprodigy (06/18/2013) [-]
The Genesis is a very good car, in fact the only bad thing people seem to be able to say about it is that the windows look like a penis. Which personally wouldn't bother me too much because i wouldnt care.

You'd be surprised about the Corvette thing; where I live in Queens, NYC I see them surprisingly rarely, maybe a few times a month. I'm not really one to be a unique special snowflake anyway, I'm more for 'bang for the buck' practicality so it wouldnt bother me that no one asks me 'what car is that?'. The C5 Vettes will be so cheap soon and theyre such great cars that I dont think I can justify NOT getting one. And insurance in relatively cheap because it's mainly old mid-life crisis guys driving Corvettes which doesnt bother me either. I'd probably be the only 19 year old in a Corvette cuz all the other swagfags are in Civic Si's or Impreza STis.

I'd like to own a Toybaru GT86/BRZ but that's for sometime way in the future because theyre damn expensive now since theyre so new. Or I could do pretty much the same thing with a turbocharged Miata.

User avatar #156 to #153 - CyrilKeir ONLINE (06/18/2013) [-]
Ugh, the civics and subbies in this area are like a plague. They mount those fart-cannon mufflers on the back, and think it sounds good. I have a custom low-tone exhaust custom made from Ferrari on my Tiburon... I can't stand the swagfag civics.

Well hey, if it's bang-for-the-buck that you are after, definitely! Honestly, if it weren't for my golden rule of car buying, I'd probably get a Genesis sooner rather than later, as it would have more room for my unborn baby on the way.

Cyril's golden rule of carbuying: Never make payments, always buy outright with cash.

If you like the styling of the Toyobaru, why not just get a Toyota FRS? It'd cost less.

Also, I recommend a supercharger over a turbocharger. For the same reasons that I always recommend a Short-Ram intake over a Cold-Air intake.

You and me both brother.

#159 to #156 - swimmingprodigy (06/18/2013) [-]
So many swagfags in my area it's ridiculous, riding around with their illest stickers and their stanced cars and fart cannons like you said. I have an aftermarket exhaust too but mine is genuine from Nismo so it sounds good. My car is modified a tiny bit (just intake/exhaust/lowered a few inches) but I'm not even sure I'd consider it rice and it's nowhere near as bad as the swagfags. It is sort of a sleeper actually because that 270 HP in a 3200 lb car makes for something like a high 5 second 0-60 time which is very respectable for something that isn't meant to be a sports car. Ive surprised a few of these civic losers who have 100 HP and 2 cylinders less than me. Pic related is my car.

FR-S/BRZ/GT86 is all the same exact car, there's just 3 of them and Idk why. There is a slight difference in price but theyre all like 25k+. If I was to spend that much on a car it would be an E46 M3 in Laguna Seca Blue because that's been one of my dream cars for a while.

As for your rule; I try to buy outright with cash (that's how I paid for this car which was 12.5 grand) but sometimes it's not a bad idea because monthly payments help raise your credit score a lot. That's if you can afford it after which, which I very much can. I'm extremely responsible with my money, my friends actually call me a Jew all the time.

Congrats on the baby btw!
#161 to #159 - CyrilKeir ONLINE (06/18/2013) [-]
Thanks for the congrats! I'm pretty stoked about it.

Yeah, I used to have amazing credit! 752 was my old score. Then... Some little cheeky ****** ... (read: an ex of mine) swiped my **** , opened three credit cards, maxed them out, and dumped my credit score in the trash. Now that I've financially recovered from that mess, I probably should look into making payments to raise my credit score. That way when it comes time to buy a house, they won't look at my loan application and just laugh.

Ahh, I was not aware they were all the same car. You learn something everyday, I suppose!

Nice, not bad at all- I don't think it looks rice, and you've got solid HP in there. It's always nice to surprise the occasional ricer with the "shocker" decal on his rear window by pulling off the line way faster than him. Due to aftermarket additions, my Tibby pushes around 225 WHP, and it weighs 3050lbs. Not bad for a $4,000 car, if I do say so myself!

On a side note, I really like the interior of the Genesis as well.... I think it's really growing on me.
User avatar #162 to #161 - swimmingprodigy (06/18/2013) [-]
youve got a real nice decent car right there, 225 Wheel HP is very respectable; I probably get similar or just a bit more because the 270 is flywheel. Not bad for a 4k car indeed.

That's the only one he didn't burn, all the other ones he did.

I can't really pick my personal favorite Lambo. The Countach was the first I had seen,so I really enjoy its lines,but after seeing a full sized replica kit I would say the Diablo is my favorite for function. Countach for looks. However,the Miura is another favorite. The Mucri is good too.

Hard to pick in Lamborghini and Ferrari. Lot's of great looking cars.
