After taking everyones advice and absorbing as much information as I could, I finally made a choice and couldn't be happier. If it wasn't for everyone's advice (sugar-coated or NOT), I wouldn't have been able to get through this process. Thanks to:

Tazandjan
Granucci
Brian
ECSofVirginia
Carbon
ArizonaItalian
Killer58

and countless others that offered their help and guidance via the forum and private messages..

The car is an '03. Tubi Exhaust, carbon airboxes and engine bay panels. Taking everyones advice, that's about as far as "customized" as I felt comfortable with.

I flew to Chicago yesterday and met with the staff at Lamborghini Chicago and had a wonderful experience with them. The best I've had yet. After an incredibly, um, "spirited" test drive, I signed the paperwork and it should be home this weekend.

I did negotiate for Continetal Ferrari to do a belt/plugs service based on everyone's advice. Luckily the lamborghini dealer is a good customer of theirs so they moved my car to the top of their list.

2003 360 Modena F1 22k, mod wheels, scud shields, daytona seats, two-tone interior, super sticky buttons and a LOT of fun to drive!

Thanks everybody!

- Cale

Cale- Congratulations, and she is a real beauty. You will be much happier with this car than the heavily modified car, I am sure. Show us some more photos as soon as you take delivery.

First of all Welcome to FLife

But most of all Congratulations!

Not sure if you chose a carrier but JP logistics did a great job transporting my recent purchase.

It's the perfect amount of mods - but I think we all have a sickness that enough is really never enough.

Looking forward to seeing more pictures.

JP Logistics would be the first carrier I would call if I was setting up the shipping! But since they are comping the shipping, I let them decide who to use. They ship high end stuff all over the world so I trust in their choice. Thanks for the congrats! Felt like a million bucks drivin it around chicago..
