Default Story i heard about Lamborghini'*

I was talkin with a friend today at school..bla bla..and i mentioned to him that i saw a new Lamborghini Murcialago the other day and we were just talkin about the cars for a bit. ..and he mentioned to me that Lambo'* engine'* only last like 25,000 miles before they start to get shitty because they are suped up soo much beyond belief.

..anyways i went along with his story to be nice, but i didn't want to believe it b/c it sounds like some bs for someone to pay 250k for a car and for it to only last for so long. I dunno? Anyone got any feedback or know nething more about this topic.

I've heard similar about Lambo and Ferraris, and even some Porsches. They require a lot of on going maintenance. They would never last like our cars where most people just basically change the oil once in awhile and just drive them. If you did that to these ultra high performance cars, they probably would only last 50,000 or so. They're expensive cars to buy and own.

The way I look at it. If you got the money to buy one then you really aint to worried bout the cost of takin care of it. A friend just replaced a clutch on his. Total price came out to 15K. To me they are nice but I would rather get somethin else taht can be as eye catching.
