    Brilliant choice if it comes with a blindfold for when you approach it.
    The only car uglier than a Q7 is its step sister, the Bentley Bertago.

    The new one however is MUCH better, hell even desirable.



    If I needed 7 seats and a luxury car I would look no further than a VW Carravelle 4Morion or the MB VIANO V6

    These are pretty sensible choices if you don't need to go offroad and are actually a lot more comfortable with seven people actually on board. We had a Kia Sedona 8 seater that was probably the best ever vehicle for holiday travel. We took the clan to the orange river in it and I am quite sure they were a lot more comfortable than they would have been in any of the "more luxurious" choices mentioned in this thread.

    They are actually brilliant off-road, if by off-road we mean farm roads and good to bad dirt roads, and not proper 4x4 obstacles.

    Yea I have to say the Porsche is looking very good thanks for the comment

    The 7 seat in the BM is a joke, only Tyrone Lanaster can sit there, not even my 11 year old son can fit...

    In case you are wondering, we have an office in Dubai and the BMW was the cheapest performance suv I could buy there second hand half price to the Porsche.
    Indecently the Porsche is cheaper to service in SA THAN MY WIFES MERCEDES...

    we test drove one today.
    Its a big spaceship

    Oh just out of interest:
    the local BMW dealer will offer him +- R650-R700k for his x5.
    It has less than 20,000 kms on it.

    The 200 will be around R1.3 bar

    Its an option so it is possible to retrofit LRSA will tel you the RRS doesn't have 7 Seats at all but that's only true for the SA market

    I just checked with LR themself since I need 7 seats but also wanted RRV or RRS.

    There are no 7 seats for them, not designed to accommodate them etc...

    7 Seater Range Rover Vogue makes so much sense, I have no idea why no one has done a retrofit yet, especially with the LWB model. Have to say it's very tempting to do just the electrical gremlins that worries me... As these seats would need to be electrically operated like the RRS otherwise it's going to feel like a hack job

    A few years back I did a complete restomod to my FJ62 Landcruiser it included a 7 seat conversion using FJ80 seats belive me this was no hack job!

    Haha Bartho. You had me confused there for a second. I have an F30 330d and real consumption on that is 16kmpl (normal 130kmph average, not nannying when overtaking) so when I saw your figures on an SUV I was concerned there for how high you want to sell it! Then I saw your last post.

    Been driving an M50D for going on 7 years now. Fantastic vehicle but it is NOT built for going off road. Those 20" rims with the painted on low profiles are just a no-no for even dirt roads.Oh, and take a tip, run flats don't work on dirt. Every stone you hit once it is flat will cause serious damage, and that tyre will start falling to pieces in no time at all.Fuel consumption is excellent. When the wife drives she get's below 7l/100 on the open road. me with my heavy foot even get below 10.One more thing, the second hand value for the Beemers is really low, so you should get a much better deal there.C
    If you ain't livin on the edge, you're taking up too much space!

    OK so I have spent a lot of time in a Porsche Cayenne. Love it on road it is a spectacular performance.

    Today I was bored and took a sdv8 for a test.

    Oh my word.....

    What a sense of ocassion it is to drive that!

    Neither the Mercs or the BM or Porsche is for me such a crazy feel.

    One day when I grow up.
