You're right!

I've heard of drivetrain problems with aftermarket wheels larger than 18's.

wheel diameter size is almost irrelevant (sometimes tyre pressure sensors don't like it), it's tyre size that matters.

extra wheel width can cause problems by overloading wheel bearings and uprights, and on the front end, changing scrub radius can adversly affect the steering behaviour. etc, but it's usually ok.

firstly,.... of course it can, just not by screwing the spring perch down though. Would need different springs (and maybe resetting the height sensors), easy done.

Easy done! Only $25 grand  :eek:

Bull shit

surely?

springs are like ~$250 each, resetting height sensors (if needed)  is a mechanical adjustment to trick them into thinking they're still at normal height.

Should be no more than $2k done.

The LP 640 has adjustable height from the factory. I am not 100% sure on the SV, but I imagine it is the same. The white LP is lowered with stock coilover suspension.

On a side note the turbo kit is ready. It is a 6psi bolt on kit. If you need details let me know through PM.

Darren at Lambo said that the SV is only able to be lowered 3mm as is.

Lambo WOULD say that. :rolleyes:

They'd tell you anything and everything to keep you hoodwinked into thinking you can ONLY go to the dealer for any kind of help.

Can you not remember the fuss over 360's when they came out..... ? it's NOT that long ago really....

But I'm curious now.... what do Lambo say is the reason?

How does the suspension work... any tech info, pics????

if two 140kg fatties get in, will it drop 20mm?
