[s-cars] Q7 ramblings

Maybe a bit, but after 4 days in the Q7 I am still not sure how to 
change functions or make things happen. And I'm a pretty cleve 

The problem is that I'm thinking about the Q5 or Q7 for my wife. 
And she is somewhat technically challenged. She would find the MMI 
immensely frustrating on an ongoing basis.

That and the poor visibility to the right side and rear may be 
deal breakers. In fact I was afraid to change lanes from a stop 
due to the convex right side mirror. I simply could not tell what 
lanes cars were in or how far away they were.
