    Buying F430 or Murcielago

    Hi guys,

    Im new to this with kit cars but have understood that to get a really good and genuine
    replica you should go to the best dealers (like DNA or extremekitcars) in europe.
    Now my nooby question is:

    I want to buy F430 or a Murcielego that are as close to the real deal as possible
    (both interior and exterior-wise). Do you guys know any good dealers in Europe
    (preferably UK or germany) that you guys trust and have bough something from?

    I was thinking of spending around 70K (us dollars), do you think i can get a good replica
    for that price or am I to cheap?

    In hope for an answer..
    James

    Theres Extreme with the lovely Murci. Or DNA with their 4Firty. I'm not sure on their prices, especially if you are looking for turnkeys, but if you are looking to build it yourself, I'm sure you can have a 99% accurate replica for $70. Especially if you went for the M chassis with Extreme's body kit. You shouldn't be able to tell from the exterior or interior with that.

    It really depends on if you can or want to do some work yourself.

    But check out these threads...

    Thanks alot man!

    Im going to the Extreme and DNA probably in the next couple of week to decide what car I want to buy,
    most probably ill give them a donor car to build. Then the next question (after deciding if it will be a gallardo,
    murc, or 4firty) will most probably be what kind of donor car you should buy. Like an old one with alot of mileage,
    or a old one with "less mileage".

    It's always best to go for a car with lower mileage. But it doesn't always mean a thing. I know from experience that some cars can keep going for 250,000+, and others let go at 4000 (stupid Mitsubishi ;D). It's just the luck of the draw. But if you have the choice, always go for the lower mileage car.

    Good luck with your build.
