Ok, I give in. You are an individual who will NEVER change their view regardless of the evidence. You sure you're not Thai and worried about 'losing face'.
No. He's a troll. Replying only encourages them.
You and HHTel have not called Dannie Boy a troll or replied to his post, but he also quoted an article talking strongly about the Britishness of RR Motors?

Dannie Boy was just giving a report from the German CEO who underlined the companies historical links.

This topic is about 2018 Rolls-Royce not about sniping at someone for whatever your reason. It seems to me you have a case of Troll Phobia, as this is not the first time you have said it.

Happy to oblige
I’m not sure I’d like to own a new Phantom, but I’d love to be able to afford one. :cheers:

A pretty car, but the average person must need a periscope to see over that huge bonnet. I'm over 6'5" and I struggle to see over the bonnet of my Ford Ranger. How on Earth can an average height person see over the top of that?

The report very clearly emphasises the continuance of the Britishness of RR Motors marque.

Any why would Dannie Boy post it if he didn't agree with it (unless he made some sarcastic comment, which he didn't)?

Some people should stop with the stupid personal insults, it's childish and does not contribute anything to the forum.

I'd hope at the price, the car would have elevator seats of some sort! :)

One's chauffeur should be sufficiently tall.

With a bonnet like that, he'd need to drive with his head outside of the sun roof :D

The 2018 RR has certainly come a long way from this 'Silver Dawn' (Happy to be corrected, my knowledge of the marque is limited) that is currently under restoration in Bangkok

Perhaps a dash cam on the front grill with a monitor inside might help :D

Now that's a proper poor man's Black Velvet, . . . . maybe you should be in the back of a Ford Fiesta? :mrgreen:

Correct. That's called a 'Poor Man's Black Velvet'. The original Black Velvet is stout and sparkling white wine, usually champagne.
