    I ran across this earlier this morning. I did not remember seeing it posted here over the last couple of days so I thought I would give it a go. I reserve my thoughts on it for now though. Sorry about the quality.

    Ya know, that was the very first thought that popped into my head, but the more I look at it the more I really like it. It's not over the top (well, maybe the wing is a little bit :)) and it's not really much more than accenting the natural contours and features of the car which, IMHO, can tend to make the car a bit too smooth and flowing (despite it's angular lines). I give it a thumbs up :D Any idea who makes it?

    I think it would look better on a black car.

    I'm not sure of the wing, but the rest of the car looks awsome.

    I'm not a wing guy and in fact did not like my red car (dealership pics) with the wing on it until I saw it in person. It looks better in person on the Diablo. I reserve my final opinion on the Gallardo until I see it in person.

    The more I see the Gallardo, the less I liek it. The carbon doesn't remove the the "edgy" looks of it ... na.:(

    IMO that looks terrible. They ruined the car pretty much. It looks like they cut out some pieces of CF and just glued them on there. The rear diffuser thing on the back is the only piece that looks half decent.

    I can like body kits when they are tastefully integrated and add value to the look of the car. As others have said, those look like 3M-taped-on crap. I do like the look of CF on cars, but the actual styling of this kit is very poor.

    I think when you get into high end exotics like this, because they are designed so much for form over function anyway (ie, few compromises are made to their looks -- their styling is very good), it is difficult to improve the factory look.

    The Stradale kit it an upgrade over the regular modena in every way, though.

    And some text :

    "Wiesbaden - Miura Corse, a trademark of DIMEX Group in Erbenheim/Germany, is the first tuner worldwide to launch a complete sports program for the Lamborghini Gallardo. This range extends the direction given by the Lamborghini engineers and designers.

    After the successful purchase by Audi, the traditional sports car manufacturer from Sant'Agata, Bolognese is on its way back to the top. The recently introduced Gallardo, the so-called 'baby Lambo', should help Lamborghini to increase sales. And therefore, it is Miura Corse who will take advantage of this large production, and provide an array of new features for what is to become the best selling Lamborghini.

    Miura Corse offers new carbon fiber accents which enhance Fabrizio Giugaro's original proportions. Either on a large scale (front spoiler, rear wing, rear spoiler, rear diffuser) or in detail (side parts, air intake, various covers) and underneath, with the engine cover, this program remains consistent. The carbon fiber theme find its continuation inside of the car where the standard panels are replaced by hand made accessories.

    Just after the sales launch of this new 'Modena hunter', Miura Corse has added a sports exhaust system made of stainless steel and three-piece alloy rims in 19 and 20 inch to its range. An increase in performance is planned with an engine kit that will be offered. It combines fuel cooling, MC motronic, a carbon made air box and sports catalysts - hopefully lifting the Gallardo up to the level of its big brother Murcielago.

    The tuners at Miura Corse have not forgotten about the Murcielago. For the top model, there is a carbon aero kit and a sports exhaust system which will be available shortly.
