E70 X5 vs Audi Q7

How would you compare the 4.8 X5 and the 4.2 Q7? Since X5 won't be out until middle of next year (for most countries), will someone consider the Q7 instead. Actually the Q7 S-line looks pretty good. They have the steering wheel paddle shifter and air suspension (height adjustable) together with the sport kit.

Can someone confirm whether the E70 has the height adjustable suspension? The Q7 has it, the Cayenne has it, and I believe the ML, R and GL have it. If the X5 doesn't, then it would be a BIG Disappointment, imo!

I thought audi was some language for lemon
mine randomly caught on fire on the side of the road 8 miles before my warranty expired. $tealer still didn't cover it.

Xdrive, chill. wait for the brochure!!! has BMW ever deleted a decent option between generations? no.

no offense, breathe into a paper bag.
just because there is no apparent switch does not mean that it is gone a la audi a8's air suspension is controlled on mmi. maybe you can exhaust yourself finding a pic, diagram and/or simulator.

stay sane, buddy it is a new gen of car, wait three years!

Meiac09, guess breathing into a paper bag is not going to help.
