Not worth it; a lot of paper work and you still have to pay the custom tax on the full price of the car.

Because we've already had the X5 and M-class (before) and we wanted to try an Audi and an SUV made sense. The Q7 was the logical choice. It's actually pretty good vehicle. We've gone through Tibet and Xinjiang in it including crossing various deserts and such. Quite frankly I don't think the X5 could have done it due to lack of off road functionality like adjustable height suspension. I think the Q7 can best the versatility of other popular Chinese off-road vehicles namely the popular Toyota Prado (Lexus GL in the US). Not to insult my own peoples, but we didn't want a Chinese made car either.
