Default im ready, help me to decide which Q7 3.0 TDI

hi there guys, there is 3 options for me:

1. Q7 2008 V6 3.0 TDI with white exterior and tan leather seats with 48,148 miles

2.Q7 2008 V6 3.0 TDI with white exterior and black leather seats with 38,888 miles

Also both Q7 has exactly the same options and "Elite" version. all Audi services, and the condition of the exterior and interior is simple as new. My XC90 and S80 has tan interiors so never owned a black interior car. Here the weather can be about 110F or 40F. So i dont know if thats a issue.

Also, i love the white color, but dont know how it looks with the black bumper partes around, does any body painted the trims to match the color of the Q7 all around?.

I always get the s-line package with black interior, but I also part in a garage when ever possible. Having black leather seats can get hot when facing the sun so if you tint the windows and watch how you park you might be ok. I'm not a big fan of tan interior either though. With kids, I prefer to mask and issues with dark colors

So my 2 cents, white exterior with black interior and mat black rims would looks great!

Agree with Poncherelly, black interior is a must when you have kids - I got my Q7 with this spec for that reason

I'd get the white one and be sure to tint all of the windows.

Thanks guys! And what about paiting the black trims on the bumper and side skirts? To match the rest of the Q7.

Again just my 2 cents but I would leave the odd black parts black. Makes the white seem whiter.

No, I ordered the roof cross rails before I left the dealer. The fist after market parts I ordered was carbon fiber trim. Will be ordering my weather tech mates next then will look for some 22" rims. I've been looking for rims but can't find anything I like that won't cost me my first born.

Enjoy the Q7!

lol, i like the thule and whisbars racks, for some reason the oem audo racks looks to tall for my taste and i need a set because i use a lot the cargo box. The exhaust tips for 49 each is not a bad. This Q7 comes with the 20" so we are good there. Saw the rubber mats but dont know if those are oem or aftermarket.

Ya the rails do look tall. The reason I went with oem was because I was told when I bought my Q5, the cross rails plug in to holes in the roof side rails that tell the car there's something on the roof. I kept that assumption in mind (didn't confirm) when buying the Q7 since it too has the holes to connect the cross rails to.

The weather tech are definitely after market but are fantastic mats with good coverage for you carpet. I'm going to be buying a complete set for my Q7 and my wife's car including trunk mat soon.

My S-line Came with exhaust tips, so no need to buy those yet, but let me warn you that if you're getting the standard ones and not the crime ones (sell for about $100 here in Canada), they may tarnish and pit quickly. I found the standard "come looking" tips on my Q5 s-line started to look like crazy after about 1.5 years regardless how clean I tried to keep them. I'm sure the salt on our snowy streets in the winter doesn't help, but something you should be aware of.

My Q7 also has 20" rims now but they look very plane. I'm hoping to use them as winters and get some nice 22" rims for next year.

Cheers.
