    My car

    Just had an extended testdrive (for 5 days) a Q7 3.0d SE, and have now ordered the Limited Edition spec with the diesel engine. I've added the technology pack which gives you sat nav and the parking sensors all round (which given the size of the beast are needed).

    I was also looking at a Volvo XC90 Exec Diesel. Yes the Volvo is very generously spec'd, but the engine is just too underpowered for the car. And the X5 is just too footballers wifeish :)

    The Audi is lovely to drive (dynamic mode on the suspension is best for road use) and the diesel engine is plenty quick enough. It's also head turning - the other half got stopped by several people at the petrol station asking him about the car and commenting on how good it looked. All in all very positive - I look forward to getting one.

    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.
