Default The Black Knight build thread

Ok guys I'm making this thread to document any mods/changes I have done to the Q. My goal is to murder it out a little and bump up the performance. I am pretty excited and I hope things come together. As she sits

2017 Q7 prestige
Stock:
Night black
Black leather
Gray oak inlays
Black headliner
Black Optics package
Night Vision package
Adaptive Suspension
Drivers Assistant package
Tow package
Cold Weather package

Here are the photos again when I picked her up.

I want to go black rims, but I really starting to like these 21's. They complement the Q well, so I might run them for a while.

After I left the dealership I went to ultimate shield down in Orange CA to get the suntek ppf installed. It came out beautiful. They did a great job. Thanks to the members here who recommended Subtle for the black. I was supposed to get optimist but because of a miscommunication on my part i will have to get it done on Washington.

I got full front, headlights, a pillar, rocker with extensions behind rear tires and roofline (front) done

Looking forward to seeing progress... We will have to get together once I have mine and it is back from PPF up in Vancouver. Still a ways to go for me though.

Loving the smoked side markers I think that would stand out on my Florett Silver although I am smokeing the taillights and lower bumper lights with LaminX. How dark are you going to tint the windows? 35% is the darkest legal here but I'm thinking about going with 25 or 18%.

I was thinking about 20 in the front and maybe 50 or 40 on the rest in hoping for a close match. I definitely want to smoke the tails...but Im looking for a dark cherry look...kinda like a 958 cayenne gts . Don't forget to post your tails when they b are complete. Look forward to seeing them

I had a small sample of the smoked LaminX but I didn't take any pics of that. It's not the darkest LaminX but it's noticeable. I have already returned the Q7 to the dealer for the day. I will be taking delivery of it on Wednesday there was a smudge on the headliner and scratch in the paint that they need to fix. Santa 🎅🏼 is going to be good to me this year.

Which of the above has anything to do with performance?

Not for performance, but you definitely need SQ7 pedals...
