Expect no punishment or jail time, because thats for the poors.

Interestingly, the Rolls-Royce being investigated has nothing to do now with the opulent ultra-luxury passenger vehicles everybody thinks of when the name "Rolls-Royce" is mentioned.

They split off the motor vehicle division in 1973 and the brand is now licensed to BMW.

But then, just how many actual brands are NOT somehow linked to gluttony, extravagance, and decadence? That's the Holy Grail of what brand managers want. It makes their stuff valuable.

I usually send the Rolls ahead with the luggage while I drive the Lamborghini to the keys.

Haha, I came here to say something similar. Well put.

At the end of a family vacation some 40 years ago we came across a Rolls-Royce owners convention in Atlanta. I'll never forget the "sound" a silent-running car made as it glided along the parking area.

In other words, whatever they did, I'm cutting Rolls-Royce some slack.

Somebody has to make the nicest car in the world. Certainly less degenerate than spending the same wad of dividend cash on some shrieking race car for the street, I feel, though I like to see supercars doing their thing on the track.

But evidently this is a separate entity from the BMW subsidiary.

Yes, my personal trainer isn't here. I'll fire her and get another.

Get with the 20th century, Subby--they've been known for their outstanding jet engines for decades, not cars.

Radio Shack?
