Undecided whether to chop in the noble for a gallardo. Love the nob,but the shape pf the lambo keeps tempting me.

Well we won't be able to see as much of the clean engine mate so better keep the Nob getmecoat

How about a Pork Turbo - the serious Nobs' choice (usually in Cobalt Blue)?

Know what you mean Tony and won't try to bring you round however... know that I was so anti-Pork my whole life you wouldn't believe it - and then I drove my first ever Pork (a 997T manual) last year, now it's in the fleet. I now know why it's renowned as the best everyday all round high-performance sports car smile

I had the same dilema! What swung it for me was the Lambo will depreciate £15-20k per year where the Noble will just stay the same price. If you can live with the cost then buy the Lambo, my Bro was sales manager at Porsche and he says its the best car he ever drove!

Not keen on gallardo's, bit under steery for my liking, not tried the later ones though.
F430 is a better car IMO.

Tony, if you come to some of the south coast events that are organised on PH then there are a couple of owners who you can talk to.

One went from Lambo to 430 and then back to Lambo?

It's got to be a balboni RWD if you do, the rest don't appeal and depreciate too much, I had similar thoughts then bought a Sagaris, kept the Noble and have the choice of two awesome drivers cars that aren't depreciating.

Had almost all the variants out of the car club over the last 5 years. They are all reasonable, and the spyder has one of the nicest sounds, but dynamically you always feel a bit of a passenger rather than involved.

Keep the noble and get an Ecurie sub then you can have the best of both worlds.... wink

I have a customer with a gallardo he uses as a daily, he jokes that he thinks the garage use it as a bench in the workshop it's there that often! Steering rack last time. That aside I've been out in it and it's fantastic
