Thumbs up My new Audi Q7

Sooo....It's official now:

I won't be getting the Conti for now but ordered a 2017 MKZ Black Label Hybrid (White Platinum, Chalet Theme, Pano-Roof, Technology Package, Climate Package and Multi-Contour Seats).

This will be my mother's vehicle.

The reason why I'm not getting the Conti is that I picked up a loaded Audi Q7 last Wednesday. This vehicle is even more expensive than a fully loaded Continental BL so I had to save a bit on the other end - LOL. After all, my mother didn't want to drive a vehicle as large as the Continental and drives a lot for her business - especially during rush hour traffic - and was quite pleased with her current Hybrid.

So here are some pics of my new Audi:

Thanks!

Hey, I traded in my Jeep for the Audi - as I said, there will still be a Lincoln in our garage...

As far as I know, it is. They designed it that way to achieve a balanced air-distribution.

Re: My new Audi Q7

Congrats on the new ride!

Aviator can't get here fast enough.

Just imagine this level of detail from the MKZ BL in a larger, 7 passenger Aviator

Yes, that's piano black. Audi offers other darker wood-choices with the piano but they are clear and shiny as well and look like a mismatch to me. The linear is a clear-cut contrast.

Haha..well, who knows? I'm pretty sure the new Aviator will be an awesome vehicle.
