    They're both the reasons I think Lamborghini is the best automaker.

    I absolutely love the new Gallardo, and I think it is a big step forward for Lamborghini. But what I think Lamborghini needs the most to get their brand up there with Ferrari is racing credentials, not special edition cars such as the Reventon. Come on Lambo, get into F1 or something!

    Fuckin VW.... the new back end reminds me a LOT of the R8... i prefer the old one, including the profile in the back. The profile of gallardo is starting to look like it's a square shape, with less rake in the C pillar (at least based on the pic). The rear side window is larger now, and has a less sexy profile

    I think the new front bumper is kind obnoxious and the back is very plain. Overall, still a gallardo i suppose. Headlights are interesting

    New one looks better all around. They both look like shit compared to the Diablo, though. Rest in peace, old friend.

    the lights are now much more tidier and exotic, i'm also glad they got rid of those vents

    The gallardo always looked a bit boxy, now it is very sleek.

    The old taillights are atrocious, and while the new tail might be more rectangular, that also means it's less boat-hull-shaped. The new rear grille is better too, because it's not cut into chunks like the old one was.

    Heh...I just noticed the manual flip-up air vents in the new car. Same shit they have in the Miata. :rofl:

    :wiggle::wiggle: i love the flush folding airvents in our cars.
    also, you noticed HOW good the AC in our car is in terms of air quality. I dunno about your GLS; my GLX hvac is hepa certified and bar none if it is the cleanest smelling air i have ever breathed

    if you're breaking your air vents, one of two things is going one:
    Your car has atrocious, atrocious build quality.
    You fucking abuse the shit out of 'em

    Some of the vents in my Holden are broken :rofl:

    The owner before me had kids, i suspect they kicked the back vents, which are close to the ground.
