Just kidding!

Traded the Volvo today on this, a '15 Q7 Prestige 3.0T S-Line:







Feels good to be back in a VW/Audi, like coming home.

Next order of business is a full paint correction and detail done MY way, new front grill piece with no plate holder, and maybe an APR tune.

Paint correction? What's wrong with it? hide

Good looking vehicle nonetheless. I've always liked these.

Well, it has been on the road for 2.5 years without me caring for it, so swirls abound, even if white hides them well.

Thanks!

I bought it from our local Toyota store. There was a Highlander in the showroom; $38k... cloth interior. LOL

That's basically the joke... But in this I have a supercharged V6, Quattro, nice brown leather, and sparkly DRLs. wink Hard to find that in an actual minivan.

You may have been better off with a minivan grin

But the white sure looks sharp!

Don't care if it seems like a minivan, could be one, looks like one, etc. It is one good looking vehicle.

Exactly; I'm so glad my wife only wanted one kid- and hated minivans.
