    Either a motor on the hinge etc or some big fat gas struts !!!!! Might be hard to close though

    I think cars with a true auto open boot have motorised hinges. If the gas struts were that strong to throw an Avant tailgate right up I reckon you'd need to hang off it to close it!

    I know when changing Q7 tailgates there's a hell of a lot of stuff goes into these hinges motor wise and operating wise, it's not just a couple of bolts , they need coded to the car and and sensors to make sure it's closed, personally i couldn't be arsed. He could get the new Ford Galaxy though, ha ha
