Don't get the RR Sport. Overpriced for what it's supposed to be and be able to do.
I don't like British cars. They make me think of bonnie, bonnie babies. Delightful to hold, even MORE delightful to give back.
As was said before, (with respect to Jaguars)to get the sense of what it is like to OWN a British car, drive one of them at night in the rain, with the windshield wipers off and the headlights off.
And don't forget to leave ALL the windows rolled down.
Then, every time you come to a stop light or a stop sign, throw a $20 bill out the window.
That is the ownership experience of one defined.
My friend bought a marvelous 1989 Rolls Royce Silver Spur about a year ago.
Smoking deal, $17k for a car worth about $31k
A hubcap dropped off on the Bay bridge to San Francisco on the way back from the PPI and a car ran over it imediately and squashed it. He refused to buy it unless it was replaced. They called Rolls Royce parts who told them it cost $1000 for a new hubcap. Found some on ebay for $500
After a year he told me he spent $14,000 in repairs; his wife told me it was $15,000. And it needs more work.
Some bargain that turned out to be. Not to mention the garage he had built to park it in.
But I got to drive it, an YAH, it is glorious, and YAH it sure gets the looks.
But you have to park far away from other cars less wee heavies draw envy lines on it with bricks.
If you have a Mercedes, keep it. They are safe. 120k is nothing. My car has 119k and it runs just fine.
