I have recently been fortunate enough to be given the offer to acquire a beautiful, cobalt blue 2007 Bentley Arnage from a friend who has recently sold the house he keeps it at in the US, and doesn't want to move it overseas. It has around 3000 miles on it, and is in beautiful condition, so rather than give it to me, he wants his money's worth. Now, the Arnage has been (sadly) discontinued and is a wonderful car so I was very happy for the offer, but I'm concerned about the worth of the car. So my general questions were:
1. Is it too ostentatious? I already asked one of my friends and they said it was...I don't want something that spits in peoples faces...
2. How well does it hold up over time quality wise (suspension, noise cancellation, etc.)
I am someone who is fortunate enough to have the ability to hire someone to drive for me, so I don't care much about how it feels to drive, (if that is important in the decision, please tell), and I already have an S Class thats ~2 years old, and a BMW 7 HS Series that both serve me quite well.
Also, I spend about half of the year in NYC so seeing as traffic is different there, I was wondering if that made a difference when deciding.
