Hi I'm Kevin it sounds like you have a missfire ignition coils are very common to fail on these and there was a recall on your model and if not already done should be replaced by bentley free of charge

Although it wasn't misfiring and we didn't have a smell of gasoline, wouldn't the volume of air be the same out of both exhausts whether the ignition coils were bad or not?

If car is running rough it's likely caused by missfire it's not the amount of air you are feeling that's different it's the pressure caused by combustion /incomplete combustion

Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

In the uk deffinatly (I'm located in the uk ) I don't have the info for USA so I can't say but normally it's across the board the cars were made using the same components regardless as to where they are sold
