RR sport have loads of little issues like bushes etc

Feels more special to own than a Q7,

The 4.2 is a lot quicker and drives more like a car

Values will hold about the same IMO

service and running costs are similar, tyres last longer on RR

In the last 6 months of ownership I spent 5 grand on repairs, not what I would expect on a 4 year old car that had covered 44K. I chopped it in a couple months back as the worry of the engine failure put me off the circa 10k repair bill
