Great write up Les, mid 20s was what we thought it would do on a run like that mate and good to hear the AML preformed well . based on your recent purchase I have just traded the range rover and brought a Bentley GT using your theory of we all need a 6ltr car in our lives Grin driving it around at the weekend I was ave 11mpg Surprised so need a few good runs to get the ave up to where I was expecting at around 18mpg . this will then make the 997.2 seem like an eco car and when I drive it I will feel like I am helping the enviroment Floor Floor


Come on Phil, you know the drill, where are the pictures of your Bentley? Useless


OK Here it is, Meteor with Mulliner spec. Not clean but I dont think mine came with the self cleaning option Grin Grin Interestingly it seems they are very similar to the DB9 in that the early models had a few issues that were resolved by time the 2009 partial facelift model came out , So this gave me some encouragement in the same way as Les had got a DB9 after AML had ironed out the early model gremlins .Sorry Les for the slight thread hyjack Thumb


Phil,
My chum works at Bentley, do you want me to get him to pull some strings in the parts department when you start to mod and eventually blow up the engine and gearbox? Dont know

Apart from a remote fob to switch the Aston's version of PSE on and off, and some ceramic paint protection (being done tomorrow) I've not done anything to the Aston yet.

Might take it to Paul (PCW welding) to make it a bit louder, and a DBS inlet and remap near Christmas.
