    Looks good for a family car indecision So you are saying you prefer the diesel engine over the petrol ?

    The Diesel probably feels more powerful...and costs less to drive (fuel cost).

    I just don't like diesels . I made the mistake with my Q7 . It is nice at the beginning but very quickly you get over the first '' good'' impression . I do not like the short rev span , nor the way the torque is delivered, nor the lag , nor the sound !  2nd time I got caught by the diesel ...... hopefully I will never fall for that anymore 

    The SQ7 is pretty nice but if Audi would make a RSQ7 with the 605 hp V8 from the RS6, I would love it. 

    My wife had a X3 35d with 313 hp. Pretty impressive torque and acceleration but on the Autobahn, it was horrible. 

    In general, I'm not a fan of turbo engines anymore. The only one I liked (a bit) is the 488 Biturbo V8 but other than that, no thanks. Even the RS6 engine wasn't that great with that typical turbo lag and torque build-up.

    I just hope that at some point, someone comes up with a technology which eliminates that turbo lag and "exploding" torque buildup completely, to "simulate" a n/a engine.

    No, the  other way around. I much prefer the petrol for its character, noise and (slightly) better performance. That said, the D3 isn't far behind on performance and consumes 50% of the B3. I just returned home from the dealer in South of France, I had to stop 3x to refuel (only 55 liter tank) which is irritating. In the diesel I just about managed the same route with 1 stop.

    @Lars couldn't say goodbye yet, awesome car... oldies have a way of finding their way to your heart much more than modern cars do.

    @Duckie You bet he does! ;)

    @RC indeed it seems there more the car gives the sensation of driving and moving, the better they like it. Although I doubt he'd last long in the RS. :)

    No, no...seriously. He will love the RS. Try it (not too fast of course...that little head is too fragile yet), he will sleep like a baby. Smiley Smiley

    With the RS gone, the semi-Porsche is allowed its spot in the house. Fills up the room quite a bit more. smiley

    Ok well 'gone' was maybe not the right word. It's with the dealer, they're taking it through the inspection. Manthey's CH importer provided me with all the necessary documentation, thanks for your advice on that!

    I don't think I've ever seen a house/garage configured like that.. pretty cool though - is there a story behind it, Frank?

    It's an old farmhouse from 1830, the part you see pictured were the stables. We split that room in two, made an office on one side and a garage on the other side so you can see whatever is parked inside.
