    My car

    Yesterday I got my Audi Q7 4.2...I was amazed by the ride quality...The car is dangerous when cruising at low speeds..It's so silent outside that walkers dont realise there's a car passing by next to them..:) Once pressing full throttle thought there is no doubt what beast is inside the hood :) The only minor thing i could find is the consumption. I used to drive a diesel Cherokee and what i can say is that now in the city i receive something like 20lt/100 km .. I am thinking to switch to LPG. The car is so easy to handle, it's like a toy, Servotronic makes life very easy. You dont feel the vehicle size with all that electronic gadgetry.. If you are not concerned about fuel bills i would recommend this car 100%, Grand Cherokees and ML Mercs cannot simply be compared , especially in the cabin..

    My car

    This is a really nice car. It's refined, comfortable, and has clearly set-out instrumentation. The car is enormous - I has the parking kit and reversing camera on the test model and, boy, did you need it! Supermarket bays aren't big enough!

    Out on the road it handled impeccably - the powerful and throaty 3.0 diesel was pleasurable and quick enough. Economy was acceptable (despite giving it lots of right foot!).

    However, to make this car acceptable enough to buy you'd need to spend a lot of money on extras. By the time I'd cut my wish list to the bare minimum it still makes the S-Line a very expensive car. Quite frankly I'm not sure it's really worth it.

    Other options for me include a replacement Mercedes ML, the new BMW X5 or possibly even a new Land Rover Discovery.

    The jury is out for now!

    My car

    Fantastic car although cost over £48k with technology, communication and visibility packs. Great to drive, to be see in and to be driven in.

    Probably the best 4x4 in the world at the moment until the new BMW X5 arrives which will give it some competition.

    My car

    I have been looking for a 4x4 for the past 6 months, a trip to the Porscher garage proved a total waste of time. and the horror stories of the Ranger Rover, well the less said the better. So off i went down the road to see just what the new audi had to offer.

    I had previously looked at the A8 but owing to a severe back injury, i could no get into it with any comfort ( this was the main reason for selling my S Class).

    My criterea for the car along with a few other things was air suspension, the ability of lowering the car to climb into and out of, hence looking at the other two cars. Test one, was acess, this proved a success as soon as i sat in the Q7 i was at ease, and from there things just got better, the mirrors proved to be more than adequate the seats supportive and just as comfortable as the Bentley Arnarge. and the driving position equal to any other top class off roader, the instruments felt solid and reliable, howerever, the level of equptiment was to say in the least sparse, this was the only negative i felt the car had, The engine pured away with plenty of punch when it was needed and the car held onto the road with little roll, the ride was whisper quiet and the car just eat the miles up, and all this with little back pain, After the test drive i orded a S line diesel, which is due for delivery within the next few weeks.
