    Thinking about getting a Q7

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Soooo, wifey is done with the minivan, and her dream car has always been a Q7. Any doís and doníts?


    Looking at slightly used, preferably 2018 premium plus, want Nougat interior on white exterior (to match the Q5). Black headliner, led package and virtual cockpit a must.

    Game plan will be a mild drop, 22Ē on a 305/35 if I can stuff it.

    Open to comments thoughts complaints and general nonsense.

    We just picked up a 2019 Q7 Prestige BO and my wife loves it. We went new, just because of the current incentive. New was actually cheaper than CPO with under 10K miles. Third audi, and will not be the last.

    If you have kids, just stay away from the beige interior. Stains fairly easily.

    I am now driving a white Q5 similar to yours and now have a build plan to follow. Thanks for the photos

    Highly recommend factory air suspension. Very convenient to raise lower with a click of a button while maintaining ride quality.

    Be sure to opt for the V6. That turbo 4, while adequate in your Q5, is going to be pretty taxed trying to push the extra weight of the Q7 around, especially if you carry multiple passengers, cargo, and/or tow. I think the supercharged 3.0 V6 is still available in the Q7. If so, this mmight be the last year for it.

    Thought about that, problem is it realllllly limits my search for lightly used models.

    Im selling my sq5 tomorrow and now have a 2017 Technik q7 (prestige). It was a canadian car and I live in the states.

    Q7 is an amazing car. It drives so well and its very comfortable. Not lincoln comfortable, but more of a solid comfortable. Still kind of sporty. Extremely well built. My 2015 SQ5 felt very mechanical. Quick, handled great, a very fun car. The q7 is boring, but not in a bad way. Its less connected to the road compared to the last gen q5/sq5. The interior is so quiet.

    Get air suspension for sure. Turning radius is way better and the ride is amazing. Luxury package is nice. Massage seats are cool, but the adjustability is amazing. Not an option thats a must have but definitely nice. b&o is overpriced but nice. Prestige trim gets awesome interior lights so if you can splurge I say get it. It does get other things, but its the coolest feature. Night vision is stupid dont bother trying to find it. Driver awareness package is worth it. Canadian cars have two options compared to US. Mine is missing the advanced one with cruise control but I have lane assist. It works well.

    OBDeleven is a must have for customizing. I have carista and obdeleven now and it blows carista out of the water. The developer isnt a greedy asshole either. Carista costs are stupid.
