Morning All,

Newbie here and was hoping you could assist.

I am due to collect a 15 plate Flying Spur w12 this week.

1 owner
9k Miles
Been Bentley serviced every year
Plus 12 months warranty.

I have tried to do all due-diligence before purchasing, yet know the knowledge here will outweigh anything I can research.

Having looked at previous MOT’s it continues to have the same advisory, is this something to be wary of and a standard issue fault.

Noted as : Nearside Front Upper Suspension arm pin or bush worn but not resulting in excessive movement front suspension arm inner bush

Will this be a costly issue, will it not come into play.

Apologies for lack of knowledge, and thanks for responses in advance.

My understanding is that the warranty on the Conti is cheaper due to the older tech in it.
When I was looking at a Bentaga I was told that if you prang it in a car park dent and one of the cameras goes wonky, it then requires a full day setting it back up so the systems work together - that's going to cost for example.
As soon as the newer Contis are old enough to be out of warranty you can bet their prices will increase too!
I hit a bollard at less than 2mph pulling into a parking space.

Cost me £1700 to have the radars recalibrated.

Total cost £4k for the smallest dent you'll ever seen in your life.

These cars are painfully expensive irrespective of how much money you've got.
