Just one thing, the biggest thing you miss... what is it?
For me, it's HUD, Absolutely miss it, beating myself for not going with Prestige at the expense of not getting the color I wanted. Everything else I can live with, but having to look away from the road to the MMI display is very distracting, compared to HUD.

When stopped at a long light, doesn't simply engaging the e-brake accomplish the same thing? I do that in my S5 sometimes. I don't do it in the Q7, as it disengages start/stop, and since it's a long light I'm okay with engine shutting off.

If you use the parking brake your stop lights arenít illuminated.

Default Better Headlights

I mean, I've gotten used to these and the white is very white, but the fact that they don't move with the turns and level up and down while going on hilly roads is something I miss. I've gotten used to that with BMW.

I can see how someone can miss HUD if you've had it before. This is my first car with HUD, and now when I drive any of my other cars, I keep looking ahead for the speed!

Default Air Suspension - May be better

I have prestige with a steel suspension. Don't take me wrong its comfortable... However, sometimes I wonder I should have gone for Air suspension and 4 wheel steering option to make it "more" comfortable. Then immediately my "financial controller" inner voice kicks in to convince me it's not worth it...

Same here. I also told my self fixing that suspension would cost a lot more down the road. I'll likely drive this car in to the dirt so I was thinking long term.
