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.
