I use mine to get women. If it's not sunny outside, it's in the garage. 87k on the dash.

When I was in my forties I bought a Lotus Elite. My wife said that I was having a mid life crisis and I had only bought it to attract women. It didn't work on the woman but attracted loads of young boys. One rapped on my window at traffic lights and said I was Knight Rider!!!

Iíve had my 05 for about 6 weeks now. I drive it everyday. Rain, sun, cold - it doesnít matter. I absolutely love it. Iíve seen all the horror stories, but I havenít had a single issue. (Other than the dreaded TPMS).

Maybe Iíll be back in here this winter with a
horror story, sure hope not.

Feel the same way about my GT. Added benefit, I can get in and out of it.

Not horror stories. More like unplanned drama.

Lucky for us the GTS. don't utilize Lucas Electric.

I try to alternate by taking a different one to Cars and Coffee. I get a great amount of enjoyment just looking at and taking care of them. I do my own service on them all. I probably should sell some of them as I don't use them as much as I should, but I will keep them until I can't take care of them anymore. I'm very particular about my toys some have never even seen a rain drop.
How not to use your Bentley. Sad. Won't meet you at the bar.

How to properly use your Bentley. Awesomesauce! Will buy you drinks all night.

2017 Mulsanne Speed - daily driver. Almost 17,000 miles in 18 months. We used to live in San Francisco and I drove it everywhere (of course, you're worried about idiots not caring about crashing into it or all the other annoying stuff...) but fortunately we never had any issues.

I drive mine pretty much exclusively on the weekends. On the weekdays I use my SUV, which gets twice the mileage and I'm not worried about dents and dings in the parking garage, which is mostly college age kids at the local university. At the rare occasions I go to the track anymore, it's the track car with roll cage, race seat and sound deadening/passenger seats/carpets/spare/etc removed, etc that I drive to and from the track.

I do drive it to work on sunny Fridays whenever I can.

Also, any road trips with lots of driving and just me and the wife I like to take this unless it's driving in bad areas, dirty conditions such as just after the roads have been salted, or gravel roads.

Been wanting to go on one of those rally type events where you meet for breakfast, drive and try to answer quiz questions along the route (that can only be answered if you follow the route) and meet for lunch, prizes and drinks.
