    Hi everyone,

    I am intered in a Lambo they have, but before, I buy, I wanted to check with everyone on this board.

    If things work out...hope to see all of you at VCR with my Lambo :)

    1 - Has anyone done business with them?
    2 - What was your experience like? (Good or bad?)
    3 - And lastly, who did you deal with there?

    (If you don't want to post on this board, feel free to e-mail me directly.)


    Thanks,
    Uzy

    I've never done business with them, but they definitely have some high caliber cars in their showroom. Been there just to look and drool a couple times. I've heard good things, but nothing directly. Good luck.

    They are First Class Dealer , If the car has had issues they will make you sign a disclosure that you knew before buying , they will stand behind their cars always.

    Symbolic is not a cheap dealer due to the fact they carry first class products , no auction cars or stuff like that.

    Good Luck

    p.s. Try talking to Sean or Mike they are very helpfull salesguys

    I bought a 99 360 Modena from Sean at Symbolic a few months ago. They are like anybody else who sales exotics and I found them good. I had my mechanic talk to theirs and I made my decision after that. I made the sale contingent on them talking. We did a bunch of stuff. Don't make your decision on emotion. Get what you want, color, interior, motor, transmission, under body, etc. Remember they want to sell the car first and make you happy second. I think you ought to have it the other way around. I did find some stuff out that they didn't tell me about, it was my fault and it has amounted to about $3,000. I ask them to split the bill and I never heard back. After they sold me the car, I never here from them and I know they have functions going on at the facility. I don't know if I would go but when you spend this kind of money, a little stroking is nice. Even if your Donald Trump, he likes to be stroked a bunch.

    I worked with a guy named Rick Ahumada ay Symbolic. Nice guys in general. Always have lots to drool over. I would think that since they are a Lambo dealer you'd be taken care of regardless of new or previously owned (assuming its still within warranty period).

    If you buy previously owned, take it to an independed shop for eval.

    I have nothing but great things to say about Symbolic!
    Bill and Lee do an excellent job managing the Service Dept.

    +1 on the service dept and Bill Pierson. They restored the interior on my 328 and it was good enough for a Concorso 'Best V8 Ferrari' trophy.

    Haven't bought new there yet, but I could see a Lotus in my future...
