      The new Sq7 will put a smile on your wife's face.  My wife had a loaded S-line Prestige Q7 TDI and when she went to replace it (it was bought back after we put 65k miles on it due to diesel gate.) She just couldn't stomach the new Q7 design when it came out and we have never loved the 3.0 gasser. So she jumped over to a Jeep SRT 'cause it puts a smile on her face at every street light (fit and finish isn't Audi quality.. but she was willing to look past that.) She has been think about "what is next" and I think the new SQ7 will be a nice fit:).  Sort of the perfect car to do everything.

       

      Thanks!

      Do you have a link to that release.  Just bought a 2020 SQ5, delivered last month.  My wife wants a SQ7.  It needs to tow the boat!

      But "the turbo" they were referring to the new US market SQ7 twin turbo V8 @ 500 HP & 586 ft/lbs. Not as epic as the ROW SQ7 TDI engine, but at least it is something. Yummy and the way German cars were meant to be.

      I have an ‘08 247 with the illusion XS tower in dark blue.  The tower is powdercoated and is looking a little chalky due to oxidation.  I have seen tons of threads on restoring gel coat both here and other forums but can’t really find anything definitive on restoring powdercoating.  I’ve read a couple that say to wet sand, compound, polish and wax like gel coat and  a couple of others that say definitely DON’T wet sand powdercoat.  Anyone restored their tower and what did you do?  I’ve searched this forum as best I can but didn’t see any postings on this.  If I missed something please redirect.

      Thanks

      Done deal. I looked into the diesel but they don’t sell them in California. The 2020’s aren’t in yet. I got a 19 premium plus with A few bells and whistles and the supercharged 3,0. Turbo doesn’t come out til 2020. I think it will work for us. If not, I can always get a truck. They had to dealer trade for it so I will pick it up tomorrow or Friday.
