For which one?

You can get a Bentley for like 8k if you want 15yr old Continental. Which is tempting until you start adding up all the servicing, petrol and tax costs!

My uncle just got the Bentley GT 4dr convertiable version, whatever that is. Absolutely stunning car, it is incredible you can either just cruise round town with that huge engine just purring or throw it round the country lanes with the engine screaming!

Brilliant car.
The flying spur continental 4 dr I believe, around 50 60 k.

gone from wanting a diesel engine to 6.0 w12 petrol mwhaha

Nah, it was more than that, I know it was over 100k. It was bloody expensive!

Or do you mean second hand? Even so, I think 2 year old ones (they have not been out for 3 yet I don't think) are still going for around 90k as the waiting list is 24 months right now.

Nice! That is a good price!

I think he got the uprated version or something though, it is a bit quicker than the standard version.

Sport version or something, it wasn't sport tho, something else, can't remember.

It was quick!

Diesel is awesome

Bear in mind road tax though, just watching the news now and it seems larger engines will be hammered next year on tax.

It was the Speed version.

He said it was about £130k with all the extras. But he got a good deal. He didn't say what the garage price was.

For big motorway miles then I would have to suggest a Range Rover. You'll get the 4x4 brigade bashing you for 'killing the planet' but their is no other car I would prefer to sit in on a long motorway journey.

Other than that I would say a big diesal (:eek: ) Audi, if your manily doing long journeys then you wont really be noticing the difference between petrol and diesal, other than the mahoosive amount of torque you'll have in a satan fueled beast.

What's wrong with a diesel? They do the job fine I drive a Sorento CRDi, my dad a BMW 525d, my mom a RAV4 Diesel and we get to laugh at the idiot from my school who bought a 545i just before petrol subsidies were cut

I can't help but feel, given the fact that everytime somebody suggests a car you know everything about it and have already researched it, that you started this thread with the intention of a) showing off how rich you are and b) showing off how much you know about German machinery.

Well the fact this thread started of thinking about a 7er or an A8 , it moved to a flying spur or a 4x4 ( being considered) which are 2 cars i hadnt though about and probally wouldnt have without this thread.

So tbh if you dont actually have an input to the thread why not click back?

Did think about the 35d but it would certainly need a rempap, and after reading about people having problems because the remap pushse the torque converter out of its capabilities therefore shredding it. Not to keen.

Plus the new 5 series is a bit bleh looking!

diesel's are louder than petrol (or though it depends on how well the engine is silenced)
You won't ever need to replace the spark plugs with a diesel

Funny that, they don't ignite diesel with spark plugs.
