Unpimp my ride

Quickly, Jeeves, to the Ford Flex!

Oh WSJ…they want you to trade in your:

Bentley Continental Flying Spur with a USED VW Phaeton

Net Gain: About $110,000 depending on how hard you bargain for your 2004 Phaeton.

What You’re Saying: I drive an underappreciated gem with a 12-cylinder (count em!) 6.0 liter engine.

What You’re Losing: It ain’t a Bentley.

What You’re Gaining: A thousand tiny AC ventsvonly you know exist, and the first glance admiration of anyone with a subscription to Der Spiegel.

Smug Factor: Wunderbar! You traded in the car of the House of Winsdsor for the People’s Car. And underneath it all, it’s basically the same thing.

There are a couple more scenarios but I think you get the just of it. Haha.
