I’m buying a 3.0 Audi Q7 from England with 27,000 miles on it; is this car VAT-free?

As long as it’s not less than six months old, you’ll be VAT free. The rule on VAT is that it’s charged unless the car is more than six months old, or if it has less than 6,000km (or miles equivalent) on the clock. As the Audi you’re looking at has done 27,000 miles, then it’s definitely outside the mileage VAT charge, and with that distance covered, I’d guess it must be older than six months, too.
