[A4] Remote entry

It actually works out rather well.   When it locks at 10mph it will unlock the door when you turn off the car.  I think it is even
smart enough to know if only the driver's door was opened when entering the car.   I think I have noticed it sometimes open all the
doors when the car is shut off and sometimes just the driver's door.  I am thinking that it monitors the other doors to see if they
are opened before starting the car. 

I found it convenient to have the alarm set automatically (when it worked on my car).  It would be better if it knew that if the
windows were open, not to set the motion sensors.  With the windows open the motion sensors are triggered easily by wind.

Ewww...I would HATE my doors to automatically lock at any time.   at 5mph 
or after I turn off the car and exit.
Talk about a PITA.
