I think the 2015 facelift is the best looking, inside and out. I’m not a fan of a touchscreen dash and not so keen on the exterior lines of the new model. Also exterior wise I think the original has the best rear lights - so much character compared to the new ones which are pretty much the same across all new Audi models, where’s that light shape was A7 exclusive. ...just my personal view, I’m sure others will disagree.

Agreed. The 4G8 facelift is the best looking A7 released to date, especially with the lights. Not a fan of touchscreens. Had a VW Mk7 as a courtesy car and the touchscreen was dreadful. I think with the touchscreens you spend more time looking at it compared to the turn knob where you can just glance and press it if you get what i'm trying to say.

@DSB 07 Whats the drive like on the new 4K8 A7 compared to the predecessor facelift A7?

Very similar the way I drive, a bit quieter but that might be the tyre profile which is a thicker that my 2015 model. The big issue for me is a dreadful lag when setting off, its not always but the amount of times i'm left halfway out on a busy road or roundabout is too often. My 2015 was the 3ltr this is 2ltr, im not a fast driver so its not important to me but the latest one is slower 0-60 and you can tell. My ideal would be the interior/gadgets of the current and the engine/gearbox exterior of the facelift.

Here’s mine. Quite happy with the touch screen. A very different car from my old 2016 A7 though.

View attachment 199081 View attachment 199082 My A7's are all standard, but I've got them through the decade, from 2011 to current; The original, the face lift and the current model. Thought it might be interesting
After many years of A7 driving, and about 300k miles in three cars (current one only 40k miles) I am handing mine back as I am not doing the miles due to home working v' the office. They have been great cars, I've had A6's and 5 series and the A7 is just great at what it does. It feels safe at 70 in the pouring rain on the M1 which is where they spent most of their time. Other than one double puncture from a lorry tyre shredding and a punctured radiator from stuff falling from an unsecured lorry load, they have always got me to my destination safely. I did also have one front end bump at low speed, caused £4k worth of damage, but thats new cars for you. The auto box/ throttle lag on the current model is the most disappointing, but not enough to change my mind about the A7. Thats me leaving, my favourite of the three was the 2015 3 ltr sline facelift model, I hope you continue to enjoy your A7's.

Very nice. How do u find the ride on h&r springs

Well before the A7 I had a hot hatch on Eibach coilovers, which were fairly firm. The H&R on the A7 are still comfortable but a touch firmer than standard S Line springs. It is still smooth and not crashy at all, I'd recommend choosing a top brand if considering lowering!

Wow, nice car, RS3 will feel miniature after this if it ever arrives and or you don’t give up waiting. You are certainly getting a flavour of the Audi range whilst you wait

Hello A7/S7/RS7 lovers!! I’m new to this site so looking to share and get some idea on mods/cosmetics etc for my 2013 A7 Black Edition 3.0 Diesel.
Here she is.
Anyone had thier back boxes cut out? Think that’s gonna be my next project. Anyone know if there’s any droning at motorway speeds with this tho? Cheers

Ouch :chargrined:

Had a similar encounter with my power washer a while back. I now have two breeze blocks in the garage which stop me coming back too far!

Damnnn! Sorry to see that. I’ve used chips away a few times in the past (mainly on alloy refurbs) and they do a superb job. Beautiful car btw, what model is it?

Just scroll up a bit you will see mine and spec

Like anything, depends on who is doing it as I have had good and bad chipsaway experiences. Personally I would get it fixed properly but then you only keep your cars for 5 mins

I just hope Audi knock it out the park,
For me to want it,
I know it’s not going to be an A7 so I will be hopefully looking beyond the premium feel,
1 thing I won’t let go is it’s build slot ,as I’m 11 months in
Maybe there’s a few coins in it if I don’t like the 3 for someone who is desperate
Terrible I know
Judgement day is getting ever closer

Absolutely amazing attention to detail to bring this car to better than new paintwork
Shout out to A J car care in south Birmingham
