People keep thinking my car is an SLR[:)]

The last time was in a petrol garage and the guy behind the counter asked me how I could afford a car that cost £300K. I tried to explain that it wasn't an SLR but he didn't seem to follow me.

This has happened a few times now and was wondering if it's happened to any one else?

Everytime I am driving through the streets of NYC, I get that ohhhhh, ahhhhh, uuhhhhh stare from everybody. If I could find a great body shop that does lambo doors, I would so get them done) then again, the driver is hot too (maybe they are just staring at me???? LOL)

PS.. Where are the women on these forums???

Probably the best lambo doors at the moment are made by Fab Design, but the installation will cost ya $10,000 [:(] (the results is fantastic tho', it's not the ricey style doors which you first push open, and then lift. No, these lift up in one continuous motion, they've only got one hinge that they rely on, but the doors need to be re-inforced because of this feature, this is what makes them cost so much).

No, but a pedestrian stopped in the middle of the street to gawk at my car, had to wave her off as the light turned green. Too bad she was a tad bit older than what I normally go for :-(

Give these guys a call- They take care of most of the NY Jets.
They are also a certified Kleemann dealer. And If they can't do it, they know somebody who can.
Cheers.
