This is why whenever I get around to adding power locks to my coupe I
probably won't use Audi spares even though I have 'em.  Those vacuum
operated locks don't really cut it IMHO.  Always liked the speed and
neatness of electric power locks.  And much easier to actuate with one
of those key fob things, right?
