After 4 years of ownership, i decided to sell the DS3, and did it in first week of January 2018.
And in its place I got something that had 4 doors instead of 2,

Let me introduce: 2011 Audi A7 3L tdi, with 83k km.


Exterior color is Dakota grey pearl, and the interior is Milano-leather.
(some)options: Head-up Display, Audi adaptive Xenons, comfort seats with memory in the front, 18” winters and 20” summers (picture in the dealer pics).

Engine: 3L tdi, 244Hp, 500Nm

Oh you bastard... you just had to upstage me! :lol:

Congrats on the ride, man. Been saying that since the day I found out about it. ;)

EDIT: I also want your interior colour and trim. It's perfect!

Oh wow. That's really nice.

That gen of Audis have always been on my radar, but at this point, I /need/ CarPlay, and you can't replace a head unit in them because of MMI.

Sweet! I've been thinking about getting an older A7, but I've been leery of out-of-warranty German car foibles. Looking forward to hearing more about this.

I'm having my A5's MMI replaced in a week. Picking up the new system tomorrow. €600 to upgrade from Symphony to MMI 3G basic. I could have spent 1000 and gone for the same one Galantti has. MMI 3G+. In the same vane, if Galantti wants to upgrade in the future, he can do so. He'd just need to swap the entire system to an upgraded one with Car Play or Android Auto support. The facelift model (2015 and 2016) has this support and is an easy swap as all the hardware uses the same mouldings and connections. I don't know exactly which specific MMI model, but that information can be found easily.

Ooh, that's one elegant A7 inside and out, congrats! Looks particularly good on the summer wheels.

Is this the opposite of the mid-life crisis purchase? When you sell the grey sedan for the bright yellow hockey skate...:lol:

But seriously, congrats. It looks great!
