This guy was super nice and intrigued by the old “R”......
That's the story of Bentley versus Rolls-Royce from the time of the split to VW and BMW ownerships, respectively.Looks like new money vs old money to me!
That particular style of fog light is on SRH33576 as a factory installed option (as well as red ones in the rear, dropped below the bumper as well). I'd imagine that this carried over as an option for many years.
I'm pretty sure they've been bling for a bit longer. Didn't David Beckham get a driving ban after being caught speeding in a Continental R?Bentley has become "a bling car" and common (as in, "she's/he's common,") in recent decades in my opinion.
