    Q7 ordered!

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    My 1st Audi,a Q7, has been ordered. Am so excited. I drove just about every SUV on the market during the decision process. Was almost all set on getting a MB GLS450 and then decided to drive the Q7. Couldn't believe how much nicer the Q7 was and my mind was made up.

    Glacier/Nougat Prestige Loaded with all gadgets. Will be a 2018.

    Had an MDX, Pilot in the past. Will be turning in a Lexus ES350. Nice vehicle but really prefer an SUV.

    Congratulations, welcome 2 the Quatro world! Went to Moravian decades ago, is Potts' Hot dog still there? Assuming U bought from the A-town dealership off Emmaus (?) ave ? Had a Pilot in 05/Merc 320 & now the Q7. Definitely best of the bunch by a VERY wide margin, U won't B disappointed.

    Potts' is still there. Best hot dogs around. Much better than Yoccos. That dealership only sells Porsche and MB now. Audi is under different ownership at another location. Didn't like that dealership at all. Operating out of a temporary office for past 2 years. We bought from Sloane Porsche/Audi in Warrington, about 45 min south of us. Way better experience. Will have to use the local one for service.

    If memory serves correctly, that used to be Holberts Porsche Audi off of 611. The owner, Albert, did a lot of racing with Porsche and unfortunately died in a plane crash in Ohio, which sent IMSA & Porsche GT racing in it, on different paths. Hopefully the service "trips" R far & few between. I've had 1 warranty related issue, the rear driver side window would intermittently not go up once down. Other than that, oil changes & tire swaps. The forum is an excellent source of accurate info, infused w/some sarcasm/wit once & a while. Best of luck & remember R rule, "it really only happens once their R pic's to prove it".

    Fingers crossed. Hoping my new Q7 is on the Adriatic Highway that left Emden yesterday and is heading to Davisville, RI. Don't know for certain though. Just a guess.

    we had compared the Q7 to the MB 350BT as well and couldn't believe the difference in style, handling, interior design with the 2010, so I can just imagine for 2018....is Audi still leading the world in these comparative areas?

    Just found out my Q7 is on the Splendid Ace and heading to Halifax first and then to Davisville RI and due in on 7/6. Getting closer!

    This reminds me of the old Heinz Ketchup commercial, "Anticipation". Hang in there, it'll be here eventually & you'll love everything ~ it.

    Looks like the port hold on the Q7s has been lifted as of yesterday. Mine was not one of them as of today. Maybe tomorrow?

    Just got home with my '18 Q7. The 60 minute rolling, country road ride was heavenly. It was like being on the ocean in a cruise ship. I am totally in awe!

    Trying but won't accept pic. Also tried to add it as my profile pic but it is sideways. I can usually figure things out but this has me stumped.

    Imgur works great to upload pics, since photobucket wants 400 per year to host 3rd party pics.

    Right after you upload the pic, it gives you some links at the bottom to copy and paste into your thread. You'll want the one that has [img]...[/img]. You can practice posting using the "Go Advanced" button next to the "Post Quick Reply" button. Easy-peasy!

    It seems my iPhone pic files are too large. Will have to go find my old digital camera which has less megapixels to shoot pics of car. Hard to believe.
