    I think they're a great looking car which engine did you go for? What sort of thing did you want to upgrade?

    went for the 3.0 litre tdi s-line, going to upgrade the alloys, engine and body styling, seen a nice one from ABT, but think they are looking for a lot of cash??

    Hi

    I've bought a 3 litre TDI Sline too - it's a year old. It was advertised by Audi as having various optional extras one of which was heated seats - took delivery last Friday only to discover NO HEATED SEATS!! This week's weather has been proof enough that they are a must have for me so Audi have offered to find a company to retro fit them - does anyone know if this is a good idea or will it cause me problems? The other option would be to ask them to take the car back and get one with the right spec this time, but that seems a bit drastic.

    A remap would probably work well on the 3.0 TDI engine.

    Er the money for that would buy you a nice house a few years back!
    Give it them back and get one with the right spec!

    Hahaha, my golf has heated seats and it cost me £4k. Its a 2000 model

    I jus bought a mondeo estate and that has them!

    I cannot beleive you can buy a Q7 without heated seats? Are these not a flagship model? Its nearly 2008 Audi!

    just got rid of it, took it to Glasgow audi and they offered me £36500 for it (i paid 45). Took a while to decide what to do so headed down to Ayr Audi (same group) 8 weeks later, offered £32000!!!!! nearly shat myself.....Haggled for around 1.5 hours and ended up getting £34000 and a new A3 2.0tdi s-line for £20k.
    shocking how much money they are losing.
