Hi All,

Ive ordered my Q7 for delivery Mid to late November - only 3 weeks to go, i cant help wishing those days away! :)

Im in the UK - Camberley - and have the Phantom Black, 3.0 TDi S-Line, tech, vis, comms packs, Advanced Park camera, Rear Air Con and air bags as well as Priv Glass, heated front seats and the Bose sound.


I was hoping for some insite in to the Bose Audio system. I have found the attached picture showing speaker locations and size etc. and have heard that some are saying that its not worth the upgrade cost, missing mid range sound and feel.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the system and if your happy with it? Any one planning tp make any after market upgrades DVD's etc instead?

Thanks, from a newbie,

Bungle

Hi bungle and welcome to the forum :)

I would say that the bose system is probably the best around on the market but the stock Audi concert system is very good too so it all depends on how much money you want to throw at it !!!

Hi Bungle..
I was actually very impressed with the system. I have ben using it in "normal Mode since I had the vehicle, but this weekend I changed the settings to surround, and uned the extra features and the sound is jus fantastic....I thought the Q7 S-line came with this system as a standard but I gues not.. I like it>> It;s not a matter of weather it's worth it or not, there is not aftermarket choice for these cars so you have to settle for what is there...I'd go with the bose if it weren't offered as a standard.

On a side note..
I blows away the Mercedes Harmon Kardon system... not that that little peice of info has any merit on this site... ( smile ).

T-Sport, My07Q7 -

Thanks for the responce, sort of puts my mind at rest that the £600 + vat upgrade is worth it.

In the UK the S-Line does have an upgraded Digital Sound Processer, but not the Bose system as standard.

My dealer has phoned today to say they couldnt get the Ipod lead added to the Spec AND that my delivery date has been put back till the end of the month
:( something about Reversing Camera shortage?!?!??!?! :eek:

Hiya Bungle, got my car at the begining of september one of the first in the uk....got mine without the bose and to be honest it's brilliant...the front doors have built in subs and the bass is amazing!!

I had an A8 before which had the B and O option and I have to say the standard system in the Q7 is nearly as good!!!! and the B and O in the A8 is a 4 k option!!!!

Personally I would say dont waste your money spend it on fuel cos your gunna need it!!!

Hi, i have ordered a Q7 not for delivery until o3/07. Had several Audi Allroads, all with Bose. In my opinion it was always well worth the extra money. A friend of mine who is a music buff says its the best factory fitted system he has ever heard. Hope the Q7 system is the same. In quarter 2 next year Audi will be relasing their aftermarket IPOD connector, this will be hard wired into the car and will fit in the centre armrest, i ordered just too early to get it as a factory fit. I'm hoping the Bose will improve the quality of the sound for this as well. Good luck with your new car.
