    Q7 for me - Though i do like "Real" Range Rovers - Not the Sport - My mate had one whilst his Lexus 4x4 was in for work - Nasty and cheap inside - Like a £50k Ford!

    Q7 obviously, but how comes????

    Oh actually I have just thought, if there are 2 and you have a choice, whichever you dont have, I will gladly use for a few days :)

    I only like the Q7 in S-Line trim if I'm being honest, a standard one looks like a whale, it need the 20"(or are they bigger?) rims and a few spoilers to help it's looks. Rangey looks hard out the box, especially in Black and pimped up tinted windows.

    Ooo sounds like the q7 so far! I'm getting my car's front end resprayed and need something to get around, so my cousin offered me either cars for a very good price! Me thinks it is the rangey sport and I agree above, I prefer the bigger version! From what I've been told, the q7 is a much better car However others say the same with the range rover! Confused.com :(

    Hey Gops,

    Mate, I am normally the biggest voice in my circles to champion the Audi, per-se, but where the Q7 is concerned I hate them. Their too big and drive like robots with practically no feed-bacl from the road. That's my opinion and quite a few people agree - including a few Audi salesmen. Don't get me wrong, I've had 6 Audi's, currently got two, and no guessing what my next car will be. But when it comes to 4x4's, unless cost is a problem then RRs are the best and do exactly what their supposed to. Anything else is just a poor man's Range Rover - even the Sport.

    Let us know which way you go - loyal to the badge or loyal to common sense lol.

    Range Rovers aren't noted for their handerling either mate - And they lose more money than a Rover.... literally... But i still love them - Even though lots of chavs drive them. Which, is why i'd have a Q7 with the 22" S-Line wheels on.

    Hey maestro! Thanks for the heads up mate! I was thinking about the range rover first been in a few and they are sexy but some people said the q7 have better road handling. Over all im not gonna have the car for too long so whichever looks the best and has the shinyest rims :) Are the range rovers faster?

    Lol rav i will do, dont worry! I should have it on the 12th hopefully, you still back on the monday?

    The Sport is faster. Yes, the Q7s handling is 'better' but honestly, Audi's drive-characteristics went out the window when they built the Q7 and if anyone says different then they must have 6" foam pads between the souls of their feet and the pedals - coz that's what it feels like driving one. Now, don't get me wrong, in a parallel universe somewhere I'm driving one (parked next to my Bugatti Veyron) coz they look so bloody mean and have that Bentley "get out of my f***ing way" look about them. Good gadgets, lovely engine, but it won't do what a Range Rover does, not even in January's snow (as I witnessed round our way earlier this year). How-Ev-Er ... ... ... for a temporary 4x4, not brand new money, and not my only car, I might have one. At the end of the day what are we talking about; the only car you'll have for the rest of your life; or just a moment in time. Follow your heart and hope it doesn't prove an expensive error. I'd reckon you could live with either of their niggles. They both look awesome, probably one of the closest runners to the REAL Range Rover. Anyway, let us know which direction you take - some of us might laugh lol :)

    ... anyway, why do we buy 4x4's?

    Not for handling, that's for sure! We buy them to: carry s**t and people; chug around bigger than anyone else; show off our parking skills; have plenty of boot-space when we go down lovers lane; and stick to the road, wet, muddy or dry like s**t to a blanket (so to speak).

    weird one, i think the Q7 looks like a shiny turd, but the Q5 is on my top list, yet they are oh so similar...

    I would have the range any day of the week...and i agree the discovery is a beast, would love one in black with big ass set of rims

    My Wife’s mate has just bought a Q5 - They're nice at the front but a bit small and pointless at the back! And they're ridiculous money for an A4 on stilts...

    As for the Disco:

    On a Disco 4 please :hubbahubba:




    Though i'd settle for this instead.....

    Well guys, i was meant to have the Q7 but that was involved in an accident. The next day i was offered the range rover but then again more problems, the customer who had the car before me did not return it on wednesday. I asked for another one but the guy said the others were booked out for today. Then he said he should have them for today and still.. no range rover :( I have to say i was dissapointed and i was working myself up for this but its just a shame.. However i now have a shiney car since my car was put in for front end respray :D Should get that tomorrow! :D

    Rangie man, unless you get your Q7 ABT up. The proble with Q7s is that now spoty looking sport package and not enough performance and engine choice.
