  1. Thread update, I decided to get a Q7 after viewing everything discussed. Ended up with a 07 4.2 with 21 inch wheels. Despite some comments this is by far the most comfortable ride I’ve ever had (used to own a merc cl500 and that was amazing). So happy with it so anyone in a similar boat to me definitely worth getting if you don’t plan on off-roading
  2. Thanks for your input Hamster, I agree the instances of Q7’s being stuck on wet flat grass are more related to the tyres fitted instead of the capability of the 4x4 system. Audi did make quite a name for themselves in the past for their four wheel drive capability . final question Hamster have you had any dealings with the merc GL ? Pretty sure I’m edging towards the Q7 but the merc gets good reviews by owners on autotrader and the online reviews I’ve seen. Thanks
  3. Thanks for the info mungler, it would be personal but I’ve always preferred to own rather than lease. Just my preference. Gordon r - the Toureg is a good shout but only do 5 seats according to autotrader. I need a 7 seater. I did test drive the Q7 and didn’t notice it being a particular rough ride especially coming from my 320d with m sport suspension and 255/30/19 run flats which isn’t forgiving so that’s not too much of a concern. It will only be used for school and work. No off roading. Just need something with 7 seats and plenty of space inside. after yesterday’s news about the car dealerships opening next month I’ll get to look at a few of the other suggestions and hopefully get something before August when the baby’s due so still time to look into it. thanks for all the contributions 😂 that’s the one my heart wants and with the info about parts from vince green I’m very tempted. Only thing is my budget just about gets me into them within the criteria of 10 y/o and less than 100k. I’ve found about 3 that would suit
  4. Thanks everyone for the replies, Vince green that’s a great shout about the parts from Germany and something I’ll definitely be looking into. Is there any company or channel you go down to order. The Kia is a good shout also as a lad at work has one and he speaks highly of it but it just doesn’t float my boat personally. Hdav the Volvo is also a good shout. My main list were xc90/X5/Q7/GL. I test drove a Q7 and it was nice. Nothing special on the short drive but the 7 seats and the space behind for a pram and soon a dog was great. also looked at the disco 4 but my mechanic mate who usually does the work said he’d disown me if I bought one. He’s not a fan. im open to any decent motor but my head says the Q7 but my heart says the merc. The last was such an amazing car I need to at least test drive one before taking the plunge. Thanks for all the suggestions
  5. Hi all, we’re looking at getting a new motor as my missus is pregnant and soon there will be 5 of us and 3 in child car seats. We’re looking at these 2 as they are 7 seaters and I’m after a 4x4. Are there any current or past owners to offer real world experience and ownership rather than a car review on YouTube. We’re looking at around 2010-12 models around 10k ish with less than 100k on the clock. There’s plenty of Q7’s in that bracket but only a few merc’s. I previously owned a merc cl500 so the reliability and price of parts (suspension leg was £1500 on the cl) is something I’d like to be cautious of. finally anyone who wants a bmw 320d m sport convertible there will be on for sale soon 😂 thanks in advance, stay safe and atb 425
  6. After putting it up for sale I’ve decided to keep the bike now. Looking at her last night has given me the bug again to get back into riding so no longer for sale.
  7. I had one of them. Had a crack in the rear swing arm ☹️ £1500 from yeti for replacement 😮 broke it for parts and sold them to put towards this. Lovely bike but the carbon frames do have issues
