    Have seen a few audis with the boot that opens fully when pressing the boot button on the key fob, and would like to do this on mine, as mine just pops the latch when pressed.
    I believe its a case of changing the boot hinges and adding some springs to it? Can anyone help.
    Has any one done this mod, and has any info to share on it? Part numbers for parts required would be great!
    Thanks

    I enquired about this on my old one, parts will set you back about £120. Lived with it after finding that out...although new one has it and its very useful

    I've looked at various forum threads where someone has attempted to retrofit it and they have all failed. As far as I know, noone has done it.

    It was a cheap option (I think £50) when car was ordered.

    As far as im aware its just a change of hinges and adding some springs to give it the lift.
    Richard, does your boot hinges have springs on them?
