Had my A7 for a couple of years now (40th birthday pressie).
So versatile, I thought I'd take the family camping in it!

Nice to meet you all...

The looks
Smooth mile muncher
Creature comforts
Huge boot
Economy (if you can be bothered to cruise gently - 700miles... once!)
Wifi to keep my daughter quiet
Loads of buttons to keep my wife confused

Not Love:
Narrow Parking spaces
Width restrictions with Potholes (20" alloys don't forgive)
265/35/R20 prices - lol
My stupid dog in the boot (Hence the trusty old VW golf, known as the 'dog car')
Single country lanes
SIM + no bluetooth, or Bluetooth and no Sim etc (Stupid)
Old Map software etc (Looking at yourself driving through fields amuses the kids - but not me!)


2013 A7 - 3.0TDI (245), Metallic Blue, 20" alloys, Tech pack, 4 zone climate
Old trusty VW Golf - every house needs one!
Aprilia Tuono V4 - every house should try one...

Thanks guys - looking forward to sharing some more pics (less tents, more car - got it ;))

Will have been 3 years in May since I had the car - and now starting to wonder whether I should modify it... going to start simple with upgrading the MMI 3g+ and then look for some 2017 maps.

I've also planted the 'Stage 1' seed with the wife, and I wasn't shut down immediately... hmmm... :D

Thanks again, nice to meet you all
