Are some of you finding the standard suspension too stiff, or just dont like it? I have the standard suspension and it seems perfect to me. Its tuned just right.

Be happy you do not have them. I wish I could take them out of my prestige. They are the biggest source of popping and creaking plastic in my Q. The thin plastic trim cover that you see on the door sill is very poorly engineered. A simple light press on it anywhere produces the most annoying crunchy creak sounds. Happens on its own in hot weather with expansion and contraction of the plastics or anytime when the car flexes enough on driveways, speed bumps or road joints etc.

I find the steel suspension perfectly fine....i have the 20 inch rims and runflats on mine.

wow...has the dealer been able to address the issue....wonder if this is a common complaint with rear shades.

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!
They do adopt the curves the with turning on/off different sections, at least my 2019 does. My 2012 Q5 used to have the actual turning ones and I think Q7's provide better visibility especially to immediate surroundings. I haven't paid attention to hills though. There is also auto high beams which are useful in night driving, I usually turn it on since it does a good job of toggling it quickly based on cars nearby. None of this will matter in 2020 models since they will get the matrix headlights.

Same here...I am happy with it.. and also want to keep the car long term.. so don't want to deal with the costly repairs if any associated with air susp... However its the thought ...am I missing something better?

Although I feel the Q7 rides good (IMO it would be great with conventional tires) I would like to have the air suspension. I didn't order mine so the only air suspension Q's available at the time had every conceivable option, most of which I didn't want so I passed...

Strange - I never had that issue...

The thing I'm missing the most is a factory remote starter.
