    I'm close to being in the market on either of the above mentioned. Had a 355 and not about to go that route again. If anyone has any input on either of these being more or less expensive to own that would be very helpful. Both cars would be F1 versions and coupes. The Gallardo I know makes a pretty significant body style change. The newer one seems to be a bit more than a 430 but worth the jump if its more reliable. Any issues to look out for would also be very helpful. My thanks in advance.
     
  2. If you have the chance go for a 560 one not the 520 or 500hp. The 560 is much more reliable and less expensive in maintenance. Clutch is a weak spot on the 500 and 520hp versions, as well some have issues with the engine. The clutch of the 560 is good for 60'000 miles and more.

    Just as a matter of interest I am looking at a 355 manual. Could you advise me why you'd stay away from the 355? Thanks

    This is misleading info. The early cars are extremely reliable, and the clutch issue was fixed long ago . I had 2 early Gallardos, one an SE which I drag raced repeatedly, the other a Twin Turbo 04 with the Lambo clutch in place making over 1000awhp with zero issues.

    Go up in the 355 section and read everything. The 355 has its share of problems. Exhaust manifolds, which seem to be a problem even on the 430, valves , engine out belt service every 3 (or is it 5?) years. The 430 has a timing chain btw. 360 has a belt which does not require an engine out.
