  • The Jaguar XJ6 is also a very expensive older laugh of luxury car land yacht not as expensive as a Rolls-Royce or Bentley by any means but it’s expensive to own and fix easy and cheap to buy so one day my cousin and her boyfriend came to town and they decided they wanted to move in the same town I was in so I decided let me give them a tour in my Jaguar XJ6 from 97 Aziz custom with that car every time I get it out and drive it something breaks and something did break this time while we were driving I went over a small bump on the road and the rearview inside mirror that was mounted on the windshield just came off and was dangling by the auto dimming the wire that was still connected to the car I tried putting it back on but it will always come off again and now the car has an electrical problem that has completely killed the car the car won’t even start anymore but I got the review mirror fixed by fixing it myself because I don’t trust anyone to fix that car that’s the thing about these old British land yacht they’re beautiful cars they drive wonderful when they work but they’re always in the shop for something something always breaks every time you drive the thing that Lucas wiring is awful

  • My estranged dad in the UK used to buy these new in the '70s. One every two years. The trade-in value - even to a RR dealer - was abysmal, but it was still better than owing one out of warranty. They were junk, even then.

  • If I had the skill, and patience, and tools; I think RR is being overlooked as the perfect BEV conversion oppportunity. The vehicle interior is premium to a level unmatched. The vehicle is already large and heavy and expected to be so. The cost of maintaining the ICE is extreme. I don't fully understand why people will put the money into making a BEV version of a VW bug or Honda Civic, but not a Rolls. It would be about as easy/hard to do (likely a little easier with the extra space) and you'd end up with an electric Rolls rather than an electric VW.

  • You can buy a fully sorted old Rolls or Bentley from a specialist dealer with a full service history for remarkably little money. And the running costs will be substantial, but you'll get a usable and enjoyable luxury car. On the other hand, if you buy a rolling wreck, than the cost to fix it will be prohibitive. Both of these guys went for a cheaper and nastier car than they should have. I definitely don't recommend doing what they did, but that doesn't mean that every old Rolls and Bentley is a disaster. In fact, you can buy a Rolls or Bentley in nearly perfect condition any model year from the 1910's up to the present day and drive it enjoyably.

  • A good going over with T-cut, a quart or twelve of oil and a kick up the arse with a wrecking ball for all previous owners and it should be fine. Seriously, I've seen worse - there was a bloke in Pembroke Dock, Wales, who ran a Shad, and when it past you going down the street it brought to mind a Keith Moon drum solo, with a bag of spanners in the bass. Mind you, the owner looked like he was one supermarket trip away from destitution...

I'd like to see what happens next. I have a few good resources for cheaper parts if you need it. Good luck.
