Rolls Royce: Pure ecstasy in an automobile by pianoman in albuquerque on 09/13/2006. Trim: 1996 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Wow! What a wonderful car. Comfortable and classy, this car still turns heads ten years later. Everywhere we go there is a big smile and a "thumbs up". Few cars can say they don't rattle after ten years of driving. Not a squeak, not a rattle, everything still tight as new. You'll be driving easy at city speeds or at 100 mph. You won't even feel the bumps thanks to a superb air suspension.
Cons: I can't think of a thing.
Overall review: This beautiful, magnificent car is a must have. Better still that this model year was still TOTALLY hand made. The newer models, after BMW took over, don't have the same panache. I don't think they hand build the entire car anymore. There is something special about having a car that someone poured their heart and soul and career into. Machine made will never, never attain the same fit and finish as human hands.

Affordable Luxury by Ken K on 10/02/2013. Trim: 1996 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Mine is a 1987, still solid as a rock. Comfortable, and the driving control can only be described as accurate, as if the little lady on the hood knows where you want to go and takes the care there for you.
Cons: Repairs can be expensive, but i do the routine things myself.
Overall review: Due to it's intensive maintenance schedule, it is not for everyone, but it has become an affordable luxury. Buy it to impress yourself, not others. :-) This car replaced my Silver Shadow which was a repair nightmare. The handling is also light years ahead of the Shadow

1996 Silver Spur by Erik on 04/03/2013. Trim: 1996 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur, Owned 8 years.
Pros: True, It's a Rolls Royce. You do get noticed pretty much everywhere in this car. People like to take photos with it. Rides nice, one must maintain the suspension spheres but a small price to pay for such a unique automobile. ECM is a little odd, made by Zytec and is expensive but also rebuildable at a fraction of the cost of new. The all aluminum 413 CID gives the implication that RR was conscious of weight but this is one heavy car! That is part of the uniqueness of it as well. Driving a RR is an experience that one should partake in if presented with the opportunity. I've had two of these cars, the 96 for going on 8 years now and am happy with the car.
Cons: None, maybe expensive parts.
Overall review: Great car
