Similar to what happened to the 3.2FSI A4, a heavily discounted 4.2 Q7 would be just too tempting !!
Thanks @Sahil. But don't have the patience to wait a full year. I want it today and want it now !! Sorry but couldn't help it. Small things to keep you excited every day.

For some the feeling of being the first few to own the 4.2 is far more than just monetary savings, enjoy the high
Do read the ACI test, it will get your excitement levels up by a couple of notches

Did you manage to sell your 3.0 yet?

I read the ACI test and yes it essentially confirmed the reviews I had read at several other sites. The performance is quite good and with 400PS+ (after chipping) it would be quite a monster (perhaps 5.9x secs for 0-100).

I shelved the idea of selling the 3.0TDI until I get a confirmed date of 4.2TDI delivery as this is the only car I take for my highway runs. In another twist (don't know how true it is) I have been told that all of the initial batch of 4.2TDI has been taken up and going forward the billing would only be in euro (same as what used to happen for Touareg before its second launch). Thus it would not be possible to get this in company's name for new batch of 4.2TDI (know this from my earlier Touareg booking experience).

Lets see when I get my delivery date but don't expect it before June this year.

Entropy,

Congrats in advance! The 4.2 TDI will seriously be a massive beast! 5.9 to a 100 (with chip) is sports car rivaling - I guess the best thing is you get all this, without having to worry about premium petrol.

Perfect for the highways!

What color?

When you get it, could you please post a full fledged ownership report with lot's of pics so that we (I) can drool over it?

Cheers!

That is a "special price" for the limited edition 4.2 TDI Q7 which was just launched. Most of these have been pre-booked anyway (mine being one of them ). It was a surprise for me too as it was about 4 lakhs less than what I had expected. Of course with the usual loadings (Panaroma sun-roof, rear-view camera/parking, bose sound system, blinds etc.) it is about 65L ex-showroom Delhi but still VFM in Indian context for the package it offers.

Good specs ! The bluetooth doesn't seem to be included, only pre-wired? When you give all that much , I'd expect bluetooth to come standard too.

Why didn't you opt for the 20" tyres? 18" wheels look too small for the Q7. How much does the Panoramic sunroof option cost?

@Sahil - Yes its a shame that bluetooth is not standard even at this price point. Not that I'd be missing it much.

@Anand123 - The 20" look gorgeous but the ride quality would go for a complete toss. As it is the ride is a bit stiff and why make it miserable with 20". For our roads anything above 18" is not recommended at all. The panorama roof costs about 2.4 lakhs.

In about a weeks time I'd sadly part with my current Q7. Perhaps it is time to close this thread and I'd open a new one once the new car arrives in ownership section.
