    Q7 And here she is! Always loved Navarra Blue

    I’ve got PodPoint coming out in a few weeks to install it on the outside round the corner of the garage. Somewhat hidden away but I’m not overly bothered by it being exposed. We’re located in a corner plot of a cul de sac with CCTV so if someone really wants to put the effort into charging their...

    Q7 And here she is! Always loved Navarra Blue

    Forgot to mention that my SQ5 was on normal springs not air suspension so that likely takes plenty into account, but I've found the seats more supple than the diamond stitched ones in the SQ5. Yes! I've slowly gone up in size since my first few cars. I've had more but these were the more...

    Q7 And here she is! Always loved Navarra Blue

    Q7 55 TFSIe Black Edition in Navarra Blue (With comfort and sound) First ever 'brand new' car with 7 miles on the clock, straight from the factory! I've moved from a 2018 SQ5 TFSI Initial review so far: Comfort 10/10 - By far the most comfortable car I've ever experienced to drive. The air...

    Q7 2021 Q7 Things to look for?

    The time has come - the SQ5 is being traded in. It's a great car, sounds lovely, goes like the clappers but I was never impressed with the interior space and there were a few things that I just wish I had specced if I had bought it new. With that, I'm collecting a brand new Q7 55 TFSIe Black...

    SQ5 Outside temp showing +20-30c over

    Strange issue that's suddenly appeared on my '17 SQ5 - the outside temp sensor is reading about 35-38c in the UK the last couple of days despite it likely being between 0 and 7. It's on the virtual cockpit whether that's any help, and it doesn't seem to be affecting anything else in terms of AC...

    SQ5 How many times to your engine turn over before starting?

    Slight deviation from the OP but on the second video at 15 seconds, I’ve always wondered what that weird air compressor sound is. Mine does the same. I don’t have air suspension so it wasn’t that even though I was bored enough to sit and check the height as I opened the door a few times

    SQ5 SQ5 3.0 TFSI Value over time.

    That's one hell of a jump from 3.0D to SVR! I was looking along the lines of the SDV6 or the p400e petrol so i can at least get more than my current average of 23-25mpg but not lose too much 'oomph'. Agree with the value, i wouldn't be taking it 'extreme' offroading like they do at the JLR...

    SQ5 SQ5 3.0 TFSI Value over time.

    Looking awesome! I paid out a sick amount of money to replace all 4 of my 21"s on the SQ5 after discovering that i couldn't get winter or even cross climates in that size and didn't have a 19" rim set spare. I'll probably need to pick some up as out here in the country, the gritters tend to...

    SQ5 SQ5 3.0 TFSI Value over time.

    Good points and that was the big "BUT" in my thought process. JLR have terrible reliability issues from what i've understood but i'm always a bit apprehensive of some reviews that people get a stigma about something and the never let it drop (A bit like the whole Audi/BMW drivers being a certain...

    SQ5 SQ5 3.0 TFSI Value over time.

    I originally moved over to the SQ5 as here in the cotswolds it tends to get very muddy, flooded or the roads are more pitted than crumpet and my BMW was back breaking. Figured the SQ5 would be able to handle most of what I threw at it but now I’m doubting it’s actual capabilities and are...

    SQ5 SQ5 3.0 TFSI Value over time.

    I'm currently driving a 2017 TFSI 3.0 SQ5 and as my thoughts tend to wander over to new cars regularly, i was wondering on what the value of the V6 Petrol SQ5 will do over time, given that it's been removed from sale with the only option being the TDI engine now and with the UK committing to EV...

    RSQ3 New RSQ3 owner

    Looks amazing! Big fan of 'in your face' colours on 'in your face' cars! Saying that i've just picked up a black SQ5, so relatively boring in comparison! Enjoy!

    SQ5 Buying advise/things to look for in 2017 SQ5

    Ah okay! Oh, the BMW cars themselves I think are a feat of engineering. Perfectly balanced and takes milliseconds to respond when you plant your foot. The only thing I’m struggling to get to grips with is the slight turbo lag from the SQ5 whereas my beemer would rocket off the moment you...

    SQ5 Buying advise/things to look for in 2017 SQ5

    Thanks for the advise - picked her up on Friday and what an absolute dream to look at and drive. I’ve always loved my cars and I haven’t had this much fun since my mk7 Golf R. This blows that car out the water though! This one has 24k on it - you don’t happen to be in the Wiltshire area? Would...

    Hi All, Picking up a 2017 SQ5 on Friday and thought always like being part of a car community even if only through forums, so i thought i'd say hello! Trading in my 330d Touring M Sport (Below) for a gorgeous Mythos Black 2017 SQ5 with a fair few nice mod cons like the panoroof, B&O, Matrix...

    SQ5 Buying advise/things to look for in 2017 SQ5

    Yours looks gorgeous! Love Sepang blue! Good to know about the rims - here in the Cotswolds/Cirencester area the roads are shot to **** too and every pothole in my BMW feels like the suspension has collapsed. In the 2 years of ownership i've had to replace 3 tyres due to side wall bulges and...

    SQ5 Buying advise/things to look for in 2017 SQ5

    Thanks for the heads up! Looking forward to driving it properly, coming from an inline 6 to a V6 should be interesting and the exhaust note is sublime i personally think. Read alot of reviews saying it's a bit sedate but i'm not a fan of the apparent fetish that car manufacturers have of 80db...

    SQ5 Buying advise/things to look for in 2017 SQ5

    Hi All, New UK member, clearly - i'm hopefully trading in my MPerf 330d Touring for a 2017 SQ5 this week and wondered whether there were any things to look for or to check before taking delivery from my local Audi dealer? I've been stung before when picking up a car and had the 'Oh well you...
