    I honestly like it....

    but I do worry that Audi's Sportback is prettier.



    What do you think?

    What the hell was Audi thinking with that grill? Give it a few months and the Jib Jab boys will turn it into a mouth.

    On the subject of beauty and the beast, here's the difference between VAG's 'Old English', and BMW's.

    The grills look like transformers and the Bentley looks like a Chrysler.

    I think you mean Chryslers looks like Bentleys

    I really like the Bentley, while I think the RR looks like a Peterbuilt truck gone rapping. These brands were always about elegance and grace. The RR misses the mark by a mile, but I think the Bentley gets pretty close, the only thing that spoils it is that ugly front bumper protrusion.

    When I was growing up, a Rolls Royce was something special. I don't feel that way anymore. I see too many of them around Los Angeles sporting crazy aftermarket wheels, some as large as 24", and all other kinds of other modifications that I think ruin what used to be an elegant car. Just my opinion.

    The same can be said for Lamborghini's. When I saw one on the road as a kid, I would phone five people.

    It all comes back around to how right BMW got the Z8!

    The new Mazza GT is a nice looking car, a Ferrari motor in a nice body from those fun folks at Fiat.

    To me, most of these high end cars all look alike. Is it an Aston, no wait, a Jaguar, no, it's a Maserati. That is why I love my Z8. Unique in all the world.

    If Chrysler looks like a Bentley, why buy a Bentley? Tons more money and a much heavier car.

    As for the Maserati GT, it is beautiful but loses points for the back seat and I agree with Havenhurstkid... without the crown, it looks to much like an Aston with a grill like a big mouth bass.

    The Z8 is unique in appearance.

    why buy a Bentley?
    That's the $100,000 question! VW couldn't sell that Phaeton at the give away price of $75,000, but when they rebodied it as a Bentley they couldn't keep them on the showroom floors at $175,000.
    Amazing what a different badge and a swanky body style will do to your bottom line - note to BMW, beauty sells!

    Ditto that - wait, we didn't have phones when I was a kid!

    This just in from the Fantasy boys.

    I saw this car in Monterey, both this year and last year. Just not the right color for me on this car. Otherwise I'd buy it! (yah Right)
