You can replace a car, not a life.

Might as well post -- my experience with my aventador (which ended up with a full dealer buyback):
I've held my tongue for a while now, seeing what Lamborghini would do about the incessant troubles with the Aventador. But its time to vent:
On Thursday the 17th of November, my Grigio Estoque Aventador arrives! Excited to drive it! But wait, where's the title? Lamborghini doesn't have it yet. Oh my, I guess it will sit in the garage.
Perhaps, I can sit in the car with my friend, and act like we're driving it then. But wait, the drivers' side door doesn't open! Its jammed! Oh well. I'll read the owners' manual inside & out then, since that is what I like to do.
Monday Nov 21st... FOUR DAYS later, I get the title, and register the car, so I can finally drive it. What is that yellow warning light in the dashboard? The engine air intake system is not working. Don't drive at high RPM, or in hot weather (not a problem, breaking it in, cold day).
Wednesday Nov 25th... Take it to service (Scottsdale Lamborghini - Penske). Get it back on Thursday the 26th, software upgrades & calibration issues noted as the culprit.
Saturday Nov 27th... Hey, that yellow warning light is on again! And hey, what is that loud sound of water splashing in the garage? Damn, its flowing clear liquid out as if a water hose is turned on in the car. Bladder control issues? Manual says its normal, dealer says its normal.. condensation... but never seen it flow that much out of the drivers' side rear... ok.
Early December... Still breaking the car in, at about 300 miles, need to get to 600. So no flooring the car, or hard breaking, or high speed, or setting it into sport or corsa mode. But strange enough, the engine temp always seems to be on the high side, even though I'm driving it like a Nissan Leaf, and in 60 degree temperatures.
Saturday Dec 10th... The usual bladder control issues... but this time its not clear, but pink! Steering fluid? Coolant? Don't know, but no warning lights for low fluid levels on. Drive it like a Nissan Leaf, keep the miles going... 400 now...
Saturday Dec 24th... Hey, another warning light, spoiler jam! It won't go down. Well, now it looks cool with the spoiler up while sitting in the garage...
Sunday Jan 1st... Doing a 3 car shoot (slow drive, for photos), I notice that the car is approaching redline, near overheating. Take it to a nearby gas station, and its starts exceeding the redline. Keeping it idle only makes it worse, so I turn off the car. Try turning it on 30 minutes later, doesn't turn on, stalls, not good. Open the engine bay, let it sit for another hour, consider towing it to the dealership (though its a sunday...). Turned it on, barely starts, get in, immediately put it into drive, and start driving around in circles, getting the engine temp down. When its idling, it very quickly gets to redline again, so I immediately leave back to my house, sweating bullets at every red light, but make it back.
Monday Jan 2nd... Turn on the car, check engine light on too now, drive it slowly to the dealership for service.
Thursday Jan 5th... They can't seem to reproduce the coolant leak, but it definitely lost a lot of coolant 'for some reason'. But while they were testing the car, its now starting to leak oil! Lamborghini Headquarters unavailable, siesta time, holiday time.
Monday Jan 10th... Seal broken, that's why the oil is leaking. The engine and transmission needs to be taken out to fix. The car will be in service for at least 3 weeks. Lamborghini Headquarters unavailable, siesta time, or autoshow time, or something like that.
Out of the 2 months had the car, 1 month of it was in service/broken/undrivable etc... To summarize:
Jammed Passenger Side Door
Engine Air Intake System Issues
So I got myself a McLaren instead...
