    Drove the e-gear gallardo first was not impressed not for me at all suppose if you drove in the city all the time as an everyday user yes you would take to it but as a toy no its just an automatic to me very dissapointed would not even want to drive one again

    Then drove the manual gallardo drove nice clutch and gearbox very easy instructor let me do 2 extra laps in it the brakes were nice and you can put the power on coming out of the corner with the 4 wheel drive very smooth but lacked the grunt and rawness of my car not for me i am afraid without being rude it was too nice and easy to drive it would be a lot more comfortable to 1000 miles in than mine but that is not what i want

    Looks like its drive the 360 cs but hope its a bit rawer and aggressive than the gallardo anybody driven both of them or keep the old F512M and carry on with proper ferrari's have 12 cylinders in the rear

    So you make out you want to buy a Gayardo, eat all the breakfast, blag a couple of laps, eat all the lunch and then say "nah, yer all right, ta"?

    Steve, young Russ, Ric and Simon,

    Nice to have met you all today.

    I've got a few snaps that I will post later on. Simon, were you pulling our legs when you said "can you hear it driving behind us?" The car sounds incredible. When you fired it up on the lawn, it sounded absoloutly AWESOME! And my god, what an eye full!!!

    Pics to follow.

    It is more raw. The bits u can put your finger on are:

    1) Stock noise
    2) Little insulation
    3) Tyres
    4) Lighter (Although both would be compared to a 512?)

    However, the CS has less grunt then the G.

    The G really has less grunt then the 512? Can't really say since I've never driven one.
