But dude, its not the best trim in a Q7...the 'S-line' trim with its sporty 19" alloys only bring out the best out of the Q7....the Q7 coming to Calicut next week is S-line...

A white H3 is expected to Calicut very soon...I was informed that the car is ready at Delhi....waiting

yea .. very well aware of that .. getting 18 inch Oz's soon and having the lower body trim painted black as well .. 19inchers would look nice but would demand usage of real low profile tires which wont be too happening because of lots of long distance traveling .. overall its a sweet ride .. pretty perfect for indian conditions ..

personally i feel that the hummers H2s and H3s are really just about the look .. period .. i have seen crashes involving these hummers and they get very badly damaged .. it is not half as sturdy as it appears to be .. wish some good old Nissan Patrols would be seen more around here !!

U may be right about the hard ride of the 19"...But wat I ment is the wheed design...there is better alloys even in the 18" too...anyway for me the above one look very odd for Q7...

I too have the same opinion regarding the Hummers...its only for massive presence...not a power horse neither safer...more over its very harsh in ride....but its always a good news for the enthusiast, especially in Kerala...to hear about arrival of new Hummers

I back you ASVIN.. I've seen picture of a Hummer involved in accident with a Ford F50 (I guess). The Hummer was all gone except for the rear part..while the Ford had only minimal damages for an accident of such scale . I believe H3 wont live up to the original Hummer,except for the looks.

You guys are getting your Q7 wheel sizes all wrong. Those plain jane telephone dial wheels on the black Q7 pictures above is the 19" pattern. There are 18",19",20" and even a 21" pattern for the Q7. The S-Line package comes with a 20" 5-spoke which is what I think Hanmust is referring to. The more common 5x2 spoke is available in 18" and 20". The Q7 has to have atleast 20" to look like an SUV or else it looks like a stationwagon. The best Q7s are the full on S-Line trim with the 21" multispoke wheels featuring the same pattern as the S8 and RS4.
