It's coming up to a year now, and I have to say I regretted spending all that cash upfront initially, but we've come to love the Q7. We had a humble A4 Avant which was a dream to drive and she was an ol' girl with a lot of miles, but none the less a pure pleasure to drive and push the petrol 2ltr Quattro turbo. With a second child on the way I knew that the Avant wouldn't offer the flexibility that we needed. Although the Avant took us all the way to the Alps and back in one piece I knew I needed to up size for comfort sake. I took a while to find the perfect spec Q7 adaptive cruise control air suspension all wheel steering, panoramic sunroof lane assist head up display the works. All the little features make this a perfect car to haul the family around. When alone i tend to drive in dynamic which has some ooommmfff but if I want any more I will have to upgrade to the SQ7 :) fuel economy is not too bad, but this car is all about comfort and lazy driving, haven't done a road trip yet but the initial purchase was intended for a European trip.
If you want something that is comfortable for both passenger and driver. I am also a motorcycle rider so if I want speed then I would go down the two wheel option but hands down for comfort this is your car.
