Karl - New member from Leicestershire, UK

I bought a 1995 Bentley Turbo R (1996 model year) last year, and have been slowly getting acquainted with it's foibles.
So far, I've driven about 1,500 miles, including a recent trip to Holland and Germany.
Whilst the car has basically been reliable, I'm starting to create a list of small jobs!
It has been well serviced from new, including replacement spheres, shock absorbers, brakes and tyres, but still has some niggling problems.
On a positive note, I'm getting more confident on the road and starting to enjoy wafting around.
I'm so glad that I've taken the plunge and I'm looking forward to years of happy motoring.

Hi Karl,

You are not that far from the head office of Flying Spares UK and they offer a great technical service help as do the RR/B forum members here online.

I suggest you post your 'niggling' faults or concerns as you will soon either get them sorted or get peace of mind.
