General Comments:

When I first purchased the car, there were a small number of "wear and tear" items that required attention, but over the next 6 years it has been reasonably problem free.

The car is stored in an inflatable capsule during the winter months, and is always ready to run when the snow has gone.

Comfortable, spacious ride.

General Comments:

The 1989 Rolls Royce Silver Spur is the best production year of the 1980 decade.

Avoid model years 1981 to 1987. 1987 1/2 to 1989 excellent cars.

This car rides like a Rolls Royce should.

The outside sounds are muted.

The car is responsive to road conditions.

The car is the gentle giant of automobiles.

If you drive it gently and regularly, the car will be a dream.

Perform the required maintenance from a reputable Rolls Royce mechanic and the car will last.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

When you rate running costs at 2/10, are those pertinent to the gas consumption alone or generic maintenance as well?

I am in the market for one of 1990/95 vintage and your feedback will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

I have just recently purchased a 1987 1/2 Silver spur. The car drives like a dream. There is a button between the memory seats which the original owner told me locks and unlocks the rear doors. I found the switch not working, but I don't care about it. I had to replace the shocks and the front brake pads as a precautionary measure. My mechanic told me that repairing these babies is much simpler than most luxury automobiles. The spares are very inexpensive compared to some other cars. There is no feeling in this world which would describe driving a Rolls Royce.
