2017 Audi Q7: The pleasures of the pricier people mover – Los Angeles Times

Posted: Friday, January 06, 2017

The German occupation of Silver Lake began with the SUVs.

Driveways once filled with Honda Accords, Toyota Camrys and vintage Volvo station wagons began to sprout BMW X3s and X5s and Audi Q3s and Q5s.

Though I myself had been part of an earlier wave of gentrification, when I moved into the area in the 1980s, I was hypocritically suspicious of these new interlopers.

Who were they? What did they want? And why did they all drive these overdressed, overpriced pumped-up German cars?
