    Considering S4 Avant as a dad wagon

    So, im contemplating chopping in my B8.5 saloon for an B8.5 S4 Avant now we have our first born....

    Is the hand/e brake fail safe?

    Take a charged 14.4v or 18v battery from a battery drill and 2 lenghts of cable with you. Instant booster pack so you can power up the car and put the handbrake on or off.

    How many cigarettes do you smoke?

    None anymore. Went from 10 to 15 a day to cold turkey on Jan 1st 2017 and never smoked since. Started smoking about 15 years old, stopped at 30. A combination of lots of caffine and smoking led to an absurdly high blood pressure and random nose bleeds when only slightly exerting myself, so...
