Tuning boxes have vastly improved over the years and now even, dare I say it, Audi owners are using them...

They're fine, people just need to understand, like every other gizmo that comes along, it's been tested and once you're used to it you'll think nothing of it. I have been driving for 44 years and used mechanical handbrakes for 43 of them and I don't find it an issue.

Good things:

1) It releases automatically when you pull away, even if the car is cold, as long if you're wearing the selt belt and the drivers door is closed.

2) It will automatically activate when you are stationary and then release the selt belt, open the door or turn the engine off.

3) Can be used as an emergency brake.

Bad things:

1) No handbrake turns, well on my car because it operates on all four wheels.

You do realise the DRL's dim when the headlamps are on?

They all do it and ours did, however when it went in for a first service I mentioned it and now it seems much better. I am sure that they can turn down the sensitivity...
