    Seem to be having occasional problems with the Avant boot lid not closing properly. Is there a way to adjust something? It seems to close better if you drop it with very little height, but if you push it closed from fully open (if that makes sense), it's almost as if it bounces off the catch.

    It'll just be an alignment issue, I think the catch on the boot floor has some adjustment in it if you loosen the bolts, it's a bit of a hit or miss job though

    The soft touch boot release solenoid that operates the boot catch mechanism takes a second or two to reset once pushed. So if the boot doesn’t shut properly first time you can’t just lift it by the boot release button and quickly try to shut it again because the mechanism needs a few seconds to reset it’s self. You can hear it operate and then re-set. It happens to my wife quite often and she will keep trying to slam it shut without success.
