It does seem very cheap, especially given its good MOT history. The seller has a very nice Bentley for under 10k should you want to constantly put your hands in your pocket!

my neighbour's found the way to NOT spend too much on running his Bentley

He's had them for years and years, this current one is a 2010 on his private plate

Does about 2k miles a year  .....  what a waste eh !

He has other cars too that are possibly more expensive to actually run :yes:

Sacrilege I know, but I have this dream of creating a soft-drop-top LS600h L RSR. I’ve now done nearly a thousand miles since 2 Jan 20 in my Mr Bean-mobile. So much for my 4k/yr insurance, but who cares, for the ride and the sound and the music.

The ’08 GS450h just passed its MoT with one new tyre and is accepted as the 3rd (breathtaking acceleration with un-Tesla quality) Lexus in the household, as long as I never replace the Lady’s ‘13 Touareg 245 diesel, non-ULEZ not relevant.

The ’03 SC430’s being full-serviced this week, at my independent, coming into its own as the daffs and cherry blossom are out. Excellent heated seats, heater and rear wind-deflector. Bootiful V8.

I’d buy a donor LS600h L RSR as mine’s been too loved. And is still loved. Just added L600 xxx plates.

Anyone know of a rural coach-builder who’d not see me as their pension fund?

The idea came to me as I saw a South Florida Chrysler 300C conversion, black and cream. 

I know I can buy a used Arnage dhc privately for £60+k, utterly silly money for a few miles a year, NOT reliable, yet another mechanic’s pension fund. And Rollers are poseurs (to me).

Funnily enough the Chrysler Sebring ‘09 V6 2.7L is a reasonable, though unreliable and crude, 4-seater solution, a rhd open yank for c.£4k. Until I realise my LS600 L dhc dream...And the Saab 9-3 convertible’s cheap for a reason. I won’t touch an Audi A5 or Merc E-class soft-top, a soft-top roving-specialist I’ve been told about curses them. And of course benefits from them...And Beemers make me drive badly.

 Landau Ls600

 

Just had a look, I am 50/50 on whether I would want one (if I had the $$$).  However as a driver I would not get the full benefit.

Love the colour though.

On balance, as I sometime help out with a charity wedding-drives venture, a well-loved black or grey Chrysler Sebring automatic convertible, V6 2.7L or 2.0L VW diesel, up to 80k miles and up to £4k, is a lot less hassle, with my independents servicing the rhd Yank.
