Gallardo... comfort for big guys, 2005 Gallardo

I know this topic has been covered several times but I can't seem to find my answer. Are there any big guys with Gallardos? Not just tall, but just overall big too? How comfortable is it for you?

I have an opportunity to pick up a 2005 Gallardo for a great price (I think) and I'm really interested in doing it. It's just that the deal isn't local and I need to put a deposit down today in order to secure the deal. Since it's being pulled off the market.... it's a non-refundable deposit. I'm a big guy and i am a little worried about how comfortable this car will actually be for me.

I'd appreciate any feedback! (Unless you're calling me a idiot or telling me to search better lol).

Also any Gallardo owners in the DFW willing to let me sit in the drivers seat for 2 minutes? (I'll pay you?)

Thanks!!!

it depends on your weight, height etc. if you are fit and 6'2" or under, you should fit fine. if you are over 6'2", it depends on how much you weight.

you may have a better bet checking on lambo forum to see if someone can allow you to try.

don't rush into the purchase. there will be more.

Non-refundable deposit sounds shady to me.

I am 6'3" and 220 lbs. I fit just fine in my 2006 Gallardo SE.

With a helmet on, that's a different story. I cannot sit up straight with a helmet on, I have to tilt my head.
