Default 2018 RS3 vs 2018 Q7 - long term keeper

Newbie here and potential first time Audi owner.
​​​​Im hoping for expert inputs into Audi ownership​.

​​​​I currently have a 5 year old outback and looking to get either the 2018 RS3 or 2018 Q7 w/air suspension as a second vehicle to keep long term - minimum 10 years.

I don't have any experience with Audis at all and I've been reading a lot about both vehicles in terms of reliability and longevity. There's not a lot of reliability reviews out there since both are relatively new. I do know that extended warranty is a must to keep these cars long term but other than that, what else should I know about owning one of these vehicles?

Objectively, which one will last longer and has reasonable long term maintenance costs?

Thanks in advance​ for the input and my apologies if my newbie questions have offended anyone.

I'm into year 8 of my Audi A4 2.0T. Averaging about 1000 a year in maintenance, FWIW my mechanic is saying I keep my car to a higher standard than most.

a 10 year old RS3 might hold value a bit more than a 10 year old Q7 though.

I agree with this reply. Keeping on top of scheduled maintenance and repair is key. Also, time has proven that the RS models usually retain a higher resale value than the other Audi Series cars.

Good Luck!
