2 years of Bentley ownership and 40,000 miles later

Well needless to say my experience has been a great one(knock on wood). I have a 2006 Flying Spur which is used as a chauffeur driven vehicle throughout the mid-atlantic region. The car is hardly driven hard but it is driven a lot. Out of all my cars this was the only car that hasn't left me stranded(knock on wood again) The Spur is regularly maintenanced between oil changes, brakes, rotors, tires replaced, two wheel replacement. Other items were having to change the radiator due to small leak & hoses, oil line leak, replaced hood struts(easy DIY fix), water leak in door and from the rear seat belt hole when raining (another easy DIY fix). Everything totaling together so far around $10,000. For a car of its caliber I say its not bad. I did buy the car under a one year warranty with 49k miles from FC Kerbeck which did cover a few items dealing with idling issues and the radio. I also have a indy dealership I trust that does the work in Maryland and works on nothing but Bentley, Maserati, Aston Martin, Ferrari and Lamborghini. What's next for this year is spark plugs, air filter replacement(DIY fix), replace one rear door self close actuator, and add the neo Bluetooth/aux upgrade which I just ordered today. My technician told me the mileage is high close to 100k and keep a eye on everything but so far its solid as a rock.
