There is huge difference in driving styles and the other drivers encountered between the 2 cities. The Russian is a realist, between the road salts, shitty drivers and their disregard for other vehicles and as well keeping a low profile in a crime laden wild wild west place such as this city in Russia the jeep has probably gone through hell whereas the Bentley is relatively safe from such crap in the safe confines of Monaco..........

If my boss saw that licence plate on the nice blue bently he would go out to buy it alas not the bently. They are licence plate crazy here, and any plate with the number 8 is lucky. One of his companies is called B and B so all those 8's and B's wow, that plate is worth a fortune.
