Let's face it, the Q7 is a pretty nice looking SUV.  Smooth body lines, and a luxurious interior have caught my eye over the past couple of years everytime we install a rack or replace a windshield on them.

This time, it was a rack install.  Previously, we had installed the roof rack, but today, the customer was getting ready for winter by adding in a thule cargo box.

The rack system is a 460 podium complete rack system.  As you can see from the photo, the 460 foot and the fit kit 4002 really clamp down nicely to the flush mounted side rail on the audi.
