So does the Standard Wheelbase Ghost equal the Short Wheelbase 7, while the Extended Wheelbase Ghost equal the Long Wheelbase 7 or does the Standard Wheelbase Ghost equal the Long Wheelbase 7, while the Extended Wheelbase Ghost eclipse the Long Wheelbase 7?

And is it easier, the same or more difficult to get in and out of the rear?

Does your dealer give out RR loaners?

Thanks.

All wheels, mine and what are shown for this EWB 2013 are available. Have been since 2010! The dealer told me that most buyers, do not order or want the wheels, that are shown in the video. Maybe RR has so many, that they are making them Standard on the EWB. They are pretty in person, but look very conservative and "old fashioned". The Ghost and Phantom are so stately as they are...they don't need conservative wheels to boot

I was almost 100% certain I would get the 2013 Range Rover (it would be our 4th RRover). When I saw the official pictures, now on Land Rover USA website)...I cannot get past the near identical Ford Explorer front & rear lights and Explorer front grille and bumper. I have no frickin idea what TaTa and Land Rover were thinking!!!

The short wheelbase (or Standard) RR Ghost is a tad longer than the BMW long wheelbase 7 Series. The Extended wheelbase Ghost is much longer, but shorter than the standard Phantom RR. The Extended Phantom is HUGE. Actually the standard Phantom is basically totally unusable for day to day driving. It is just impossible big and cumbersome!

If they are available, our Rolls Royce & Bentley dealer will provide a Ghost or Flying Spur loaner. If the few they have are already 'checked out'...They told me they will provide a Jaguar XJ, Mercedes CL, Porsche Panamera, Porsche Cayenne or Audi A7 or A8. So....getting a loaner car sounds kinda fun!! LOL When we had our Bentley in for Service and repairing a paint nicked side mirror...the Dealer provided us a new Rolls Ghost for 4 days and paid for gas to boot! It appears Rolls Royce and Bentley Service is over the top accomodating and pro customer!!

Does your Ghost have the dual exhaust tips? I've read that the dual exhaust tips are an option.

Oh yeah...forgot to add that. Yes, I have the dual exposed polished chrome exhaust tips! TRUST ME....I would have never ordered them and paid for this, but it was on the car that had basically every option & package I wanted. The exposed dual exhaust tips are $3,300.00. Yeah, $3,300!! Insane, stupid...but I have them, LOL.

OMG, that's ridiculous but the exhaust tips imo complete the rear of the Ghost.

LOL! You know things are going well when your "beater" is a Bentley.
Absolutely love the car. It's beautiful.
Enjoy it.

Now excuse me while I go berate my service adviser (he acts like he's doing me a favor providing a 5-series loaner) and beat my wife (got me a watch for my birthday).

The 7 was the best of my BMWs. I think the seats in the 7 were vastly more comfortable than those in the Pana...not that the Pana's are bad at all; also, the 7's soft-close doors spoiled the hell out of me. But that's about it. Life on the dark side has been fun. I know that there are those (even here ) who abhor the Pana's appearance, but every day I still catch myself just staring at the lines of this car in total satisfaction.

However, it's nice having a hero! The bar has definitely been reset!

Haha... Man its just been so lovely to have no car payments and stack my paper elsewhere.
But I have a nice vision for a White ///M Sport F01 with some unique goodies...
I love my CV1s but there are 3 options for the next car. I like to change it up. But I'm also considering 2 other cars as well.

Nice work. Did you transfer the lease to someone else or just let Rolls buy it and pay off the difference to BMW financial? I still want to ditch mine but haven't gotten around to it. Put a listing on craigs list but didn't receive any bites.
