But have you seen the terrible sound systems on the Corniche, even the radio in my Courier looks more expensive than the Corniches

I highly doubt the radio sucks. Its an alpine unit, or BMW 7 series at the worst. It is capable of a veritable concerts on wheels.

Talking Rolls Royce and Bentley

I agree that the Bentley versions of the Rolls do have a certain look about them and one must take note that they are cheaper to purchase also.

The Bentley versions are said to be 'sporty' alternatives to the unmatched nobility the Rolls provides, yet still offing the measurable exclusivity!

Now that the two organisations have parted company, You will note that Bentley will start to produce cars that best suit their Heritage as ultimate sports cars! Something one really cannot wait to see!

As for Rolls, they are always going to be the ultimate in luxury!

However, if one would like the status of a Rolls Royce with another level of performance, then one would go for the Aston Martin!

Basically I see the future and it looks like this:

Rolls Royce - Ultimate status symbol (With no Rival!)

Bentley - Ultimate super car (With the likes of Ferrari as the Rival)

Aston Martin - Ultimate super and status car (Again, I do not see any competition for the Aston Martin!)

Itís not ugly! But if you do not like the look of this and you like the look of the 550 Barchetta, you'll be overwhelmed at the new 'return to Bentley Heritage' sports, no sorry, super car thatís currently being finalised! Looks, as you would expect from British car designer, exceptional! And has an unbelievable performance spec!

Having said that, give me ANY Bentley, past or present, ANY day of the week!

Also, give me any of the following over a 550 Barchetta ANY day:
Rolls Royce - Any type past or present
Aston Martin - Any type past or present
TVR - Any of the current range!

Who said that the radio sucks?
In Rolls-Royce you get what you pay
And if it is not good enough for you, when you order the car you can ask to have a sound sytem designed for your needs, as long as you can pay for it!

The last Corniche will be the last true Rolls-Royce! Interior, exterior and mechanical parts!

Expect the prices to go up intead of down

I agree except the TVR part. I'd love one, but you can't get them here in the US.
