Yeah, the key to the piano black is to keep a microfiber in the car and dust/polish it constantly. I had it in the R, and it's in the A5 too. You just get used to dealing with it. The alternative (for me) would be to swap it all out with CF ($$$$), or perhaps the grey oak trim,Okay, so you guys raised two issues that are already gnawing at me:
Piano black/glass trim: Looks great in the showroom, but its a fingerprint-fest within a day. Audi supplies a microfiber cloth for cleaning, I am growing patience for living with it.
Lack of storage: Okay, so this seems like a minor issue, but the Highlander did this better than any other car out there. There are cubbies everywhere on the Highlander, but in the Q7, front seat storage is VERY limited. You get 2 map pockets, the glove box, a smaller glove box to the left of the driver's left knee, the under-armrest "phone box"....and that's it. I would have thought the center console had more storage, but no.
Again, we can work with what's there, but it's kind of surprising.
The storage thing is what may kill it for my wife. She keeps a lot of **** in her Durango that there's literally no place to keep any of it in the Q7. The spare tire well would be the perfect spot with no spare, but it's filled with electronic bits.
