    Just picked up a bentley last night. Reasonably quick.
    (think EVO has a chip for an extra 50 HP).

    My wife sums it up.....After a short drive ....

    I asked so what do you think of
    the car??? (she wasn't there when I bought it..I just sprung it on her)

    "well it's like driving an easy chair down the street!"

    Congrats! It's great your wife loves the car too! Don't let her get too comfy driving it though! The continental GT is my favorite non-Ferrari on the road right now! If I had the change to do so, I'd grab one for an everyday driver. It's a georgeous car...everything about it!
    Any more info about the car. Color, Interior, maintenance, how was the dealer, and most important...PICTURES!!!!!

    I am under the impression the bentley's service while under warranty is completely covered.

    I could be wrong but a buddy of mine who owns this car....says all service is performed underwarranty..

    Kind of a cool way to go for the first few years... (while under warranty)

    They are great cars! Enjoy it and drive it hard! We have a customer that already has 13,000 miles on his Flying Spur. These cars have proven to be pretty solid! Enjoy it!

    They are very nice, but I honestly think they are getting a little too commonplace, at least where I live. I usually see about 1-2 per day around town, probably about 10 different ones around my area total.

    I thought it was one of the most comfortable cars I've driven, congrats. The fit and finish seems top notch.

    I don't know about "anyone". I do know that front passengers have to have their seats forward to give ample room for guests.Think I'll go sit in the back seat and try it out.
    I'm 6' 220 lbs.
