    Do you think Rolex Pay Roger Federer millionís?
    It's just a matter of time...

    In 2006 Federer signed a deal for £10 million with the watch maker, thought to be the most lucrative watch deal ever signed by an athlete.

    Looks like it was 2012, multimillion deal

    And I thought he was just the usual old school Rolex ambassador, not a highly paid celeb. Well good for him, making money from his image during his career.

    FWIW my brother has had a Q7 and switched to a RRS 3 months ago, which is what my dad also drives. Heís not taken to it at all and and is buying another Q7.

    I think the RRS is as striking as any of the cars in that category, however I always think the interiors lack a bit of the wow factor for the money they cost.
    Got a RR with the Ingenium diesel and it goes really well. Best Diesel engine Iíve had yet in a car.

    RF and Tiger were the 2 marquee ambassadors for Rolex.
    When the shix hit the fan for Tiger they took a chance and went with him again.
    Not such a good decision.

    Just wanted to say thank you all for the feedback. Things are slightly complicated by the fact that a Tesla Model S is an alternative possibility (albeit totally different kind of car but I really want one).

    Subaru

    I bought a Subaru Forester XT.

    Comfortable, fast, 5 year warranty plus reliability record.

    I'd suggest a test drive.

    I also live in SW London not too far from Kingston and drive a Volvo XC90. If I didnít need 7 seats I would definitely have gone for the smaller XC60. I love the XC90 but it is big and my understanding is that the Q7 is even wider. The issue isnít with parking itself but getting in/out the car, you really have to be selective to find the right space so thereís enough room to actually get out and then get the kids out the back.
    If you donít need the 7 seats Iíd avoid the Q7 and get something a bit smaller for practicality.

    Audi is the size of a Transit and ugly, but it's £150 a month less, and you sit inside!

    If I had to have one and the price was the same, I'd take the Range Rover, myself (but I'd never buy such a vehicle personally).

    I love the new Sport (63 plate on) and know where my money would be.

    You know how sometimes you're reading through a thread on here and you see one post which instantly tells you all you need to know about the person who posted?

    Ooh no. Please don't. I'm not image conscious. :-)
