Sounds odd, but consistent. I hate to say it, but it seems Audi has not
fully realized the importance of ergonomics or some of the creature
comforts. I know of a other cars that addressed the problem in what I
feel is a pretty intellegent manner. Using the key, a 1 quarter turn
unlocks the driver's door, and a half turn unlocks the rest of the doors.
Just a small point, but I look at the window switch placement on my SO's
'86 4000 CSQ and have to wonder what they were thinking.
New .sig in the works chock full of fantastic good news (at least for me).
