Rover or Bentley Girl for Neil?

I read the rangerovers.net forum and I came across this post from some girl and thought, this might be a girl for Neil...

I hope this was not real... although I wouldn't be surprised if it is.

Hey everyone!! I'm brand new to this blog and I only joined because I am facing a very tough decision right now. Let me give you some background:

- The first car I ever had at 16 was a 2004 VW Golf (courtesy of my father). It was awesome-- however, it made me scared of foreign vehicles because once it started to give me problems by 18 (yeah-- Ok and maybe I contributed to that by, like-- NEVER changing the oil) It became sooo pricey! Especially on my Bakers Shoe Store income As a punishment for not appreciating my fathers hard earned money-- he made me pay for 60% of the repairs. (I know-- what a jerk!! LOL, JK)

- Anyway by 18 & 1/2 I said-- screw this car, Im getting an American car and I never want to see an effing hatchback again in MY LIFE!! So I put a down payment on a 2009 Cadillac CTS and with my "phlebotomist/I have no children/Thank God my parents don't make me pay rent so long as I maintained my full scholarship at Florida Int'l University" income-- the payments really didn't really bother me much and I LOVE LOVE LOVEEE my caddy How-effing-ever, Im getting tired of the maintenance costs for a barely-luxury vehicle as it has hit over 60k miles. I guess its American quality has began showing its true colors.

- So now Im 22, I just made my last car payment on my Cadillac and while saving to purchase my condo before the housing market makes a full recovery I actually wound up OVER saving to buy my condo-- I thought buying a place was really expensive (wow-- seriously though, that's kind of sad the whole foreclosure thing-- but HEY, works for me). So now with my "yay! Im a nurse with my bsn/barely a real mortgage payment/ finally finished paying off my caddy/ still don't have huge responsibilities like children/ who cares, my fiance is an anesthesiologist-- he's gonna end up paying my bills soon anyway" income I want to have a second car that is ACTUALLY a luxury vehicle and I immediately thought-- RANGE ROVERRRRRR. HOW-EFFING-EVER, nobody ever told me a Range Rover HSE costs a similar price to a Bentley Continental GT.

Here is my dilemma: They are both awesome cars, both are in similar price range-- I've gotten excellent feedback on Bentley forums and everyone talks about how reliable the Bentley is and that the yearly maintainence could be$ 2000-$3000 and oil changes$ 200-$300 which HONEST TO GOODNESS -- is not bad considering I spent close to 3000 in maintaining this barely-luxury CTS and, yeah, the oil changes are a little steep but the reliability of the car seems to be nearly unmatched. I have read throughout this forum of the poor reliability of the Range Rover and I remember growing up my dads Range Rover seemed to always have a problem and he eventually conformed and became a Mercedes man and when I asked his opinion he told me he would buy a Yugo before investing in a Range Rover again. He said for a $4000 price difference between a 2006 Bentley Continental with great miles vs a 2010 Range Rover that is a little cheaper, maybe 10k miles less or so that he would get a Bentley.

Even though the Bentley is drop dead gaw-gess, I already have a sedan and I think the Range Rover is sooo sexy... Its like Jennifer Aniston --pretty &perfect, (Bentley) vs Angelina Jolie-- sexy, sensual and you know is good in bed LOL (Range Rover). DESPERATELY Seeking more opinions....

2006 Bentley is old. Wouldn't even touch it. One look at the bumper line in the front, (New CGT's have a one piece fender/bumper) the higher A & B pillar and the narrower rear tail lights, people who knows Bentleys will say "look at that old bentley"
