The engine is different, they use the same Bentley....

I own 2, in-laws have another pair....

Other than the usual stuff in a car with 150K miles....

Fuel pump (all 4); cooling system runs a little hot (2); radiator
thermocouple (2); A/C (all rebuilt); valve tappets ticking (all); exhaust
headers (2), downpipe (1) and flange (2, including last week); transmission
halves sometimes leak a little (3 out of 4); multi-function sensor (3)...

That's about all I can think of now......
