I had a Boxster. Everyone said "Can't you afford a 911?" ( No...)

Yeah, just for example. Maybe not caring what people think is more important!

That being said the Q7 is about 400yds long so not the best example.

What sort of money does it cost?
Drove both, the Q7 is too big for what we want (it's deceptive).

Went for the 2.0T, it handles very well and was quicker than expected. Prices vary, paying around 3,800dh a month for 2 year lease (20,000km a year). Full insurance, servicing, parts and courtesy car if off the road.

Q7 has the shittest AC I've ever had to suffer.

Crikey, that's lumpy.

I pay:

1500 loan repayment monthly = 18,000 annually
+ 3,600ish in services, call it 4,000
+ Just got a bill for 5,000 for AC and oil leak issues, but only getting a bit done now but use the whole amount for sake of this
+ 4000ish in insurance I think
+ Registration...500??
= 31,500
= 2,625 per month.

That's quite a lot of cash for an Exploder...but I suppose the plus side is owning it, it's probably got about 5,000 of equity in it at the moment so I need to start overpaying to clear the loan.
