    My car

    Low budget airlines eat your eat your heart out, for years now I have shunned driving long distances in favour of air travel etc, but then came the AudiQ7, I took delivery in September 07 having traded in my Porsche Carrera ( strange change you may think ) and I can honestly say thaat of all the cars I have owned over my motoring career which spans some 35 years and 29 cars the Audi Q7 has brought back the joy of driving that I experianced during the early years of getting on the road. This car will have you regretting journey's end, it is the closest I am sure you will come to feeling totally cosseted in a cocoon of luxury and safety.

    Next year's annual pilgrimage to southern europe will for the first time in many years be undertaken behind the wheel of the Q7, and not as has been the case of recent years starting with a 2 hour queue at airport security!!

    My car

    I love my Car- Q7 3.0TDI S-line - 21 inch alloys, Tech +Comms Pack, Adaptive Light, Lane Change Assist, Panorama glass. I have one major problem with this car, the Sat Nav. You can only input 4 characters of a post code, then you must type in intersection, street name etc (makes things tricky when finding an extra urban destination). Apparently this is a UK thing, as we (and our 150£ tom tom's) use granular post codes, and they don’t on the continent. Other than that the car is very slick, with everything working exactly as it should. One tip for someone wanting music is buy the Audi Music interface (200 quid) and get the USB cable (forget IPOD) - couple that with a 60£ hard drive from PC world, and your Q7 can have 200 Gb of music of a hard drive all controlled through the MMI ! The AMI isn’t just IPod - Windows Media, and other formats work too If you buy the S-line (20 inch tyre) or the optional 21 Inch tyre - I would recommend the comfort pack (memory mirrors and key etc) as it is too easy to scratch the rims on curbs. The memory mirrors auto-dip in reverse showing you the curb to avoid this damage. As for the tyres take it to Audi, and they will meet you some of the way towards tyre replacement, they have technical memo circulating around the dealerships from Audi authorising them to meet you some of the way (though they admit no poor design in tyre department) My tyres are fine (but they are 21 inch - not the 20 on S-line or normal 18 on base model)

    My car

    Currently driving a BMW X5 I was looking to replace my car for a new X5. However the price of the new car was so much I decided to look at the Q7. Boy am I glad I did! What a car! I test drove a 3.0l TDI SPORTLINE. Hence my new car is due in Mar 08. Very impressed with the specification and presence of the car. Drives like a saloon and muc better equipped than the X5 for the price. I was quoted £48k for a fully loaded spec inc tech and comms pack etc etc.. Managed to haggle a 6% discount which will offset the running costs which can be high. My X5 only does 23mpg and i hope to squeeze 30mpg out of the Q7 based on some other reader reviews. I cant wait untl March!!!!

    My car

    I have just reached 27,000 miles and am about to fit a third set of tyres! The problem is the old favourite "wearing on the outer edges!!"When the power steering belt snapped whilst doing sixty on the m40 I mentioned this to Audi who said the tyres were under inflated and maybe I drove it hard!I feel that this is the only fly in the ointment as I drove 23,000 miles in a Range Rover and the tyres still looked as if they would do a further 23,000. At an average £150 a corner it is not good enough to be fobbed off with such throw away remarks. My friend has a 4.2 Q7 and at 11,000 is looking at new tyres. Apart from that it is a great vehicle and I would not hesitate to buy another.It is comfortable, practical and averages mid 30's, though I may put some of this down to going from 0 to six points in it within a month!
