The required oil will be either quality standard 504.00 or 502.00. You need to open the hood and there will be a label just above where the radiator sits in the car. That will call out which VAG spec they want you to use. The 502.00 oils are e-z to track down.

Are you absolutely sure the Q7 doesn't have the EA839 engine that requires 508.00?

No,my Q7 has the 3.0L engine and on top of the radiator I found the two stickers with the recommended oil grade 504.00 and 502.00. After some research I found that one is a 5w30 and the other is a 5w40 grade. Iím still confused why Audi gives me a choice of 2 grades of oil for this engine.

In that case my suggestion by far is German Castrol 0w30 which is 50200 approved.
