Takes the ****** hassles out of driving and leaves me to concentrate on driving as I'm not concentrating on putting the eBrake on. Thus I'm concentrating more on "actual driving"
But surely driving is much more than just guiding a car along the road. Using the available controls when necessary, to me at least, is all part of the enjoyment of driving, especially as most of the controls are power assisted and very easy to use these days. Personally I never had any problem using a manual handbrake for 50 years so an EPB is so easy. It's the same to me as the s-tronic which I drive nearly all the time in 'manual mode'. Power assisted gear changing. I can still remember driving (all be it military trucks and armoured vehicles) when every gear-change involved double de-clutching. Now even they have automatic or power assisted gear changing.Takes the ****** hassles out of driving and leaves me to concentrate on driving as I'm not concentrating on putting the eBrake on.

But it's so awesome when you don't have to touch anything and car does it all for you. Feel like a king sitting there just driving the car and not a lot else with S-Tronic, ACC, hill assist.
It's a nice option to have when you're cruising about town and in heavy traffic, I love it. You can always switch it off when driving 'fast' and flick on the EPB if sitting in traffic for a while.
Also, I believe it automatically switches over to the EPB when sitting still for a pre-determined time.
Just learn to adapt to new technologies and make the most of it....its 2015, not 1985!
Easier said than done V8 I'm afriadBH
Just merge it onto the end of one of the appropriate old threads.
But choose one where the dates won't get all jumbled up!
Admin don't like us doing that where there is quite a few posts. In knackers the smooth running of the site in the background I am toldBut you can move posts from this thread?
Into an older thread?
So your with this fella then V8?(I'm not in favour of democracy )
Had hill hold assist on my last A4 for 5 1/2 years & TBH it was one of the first options I went for
Some like it some loathe it
WOW!Without wishing to get into politics, it is a fallacy that we live in a (pure or direct) democratic system.
In a true democracy, power is held by the people. In our case, power is held in the elected representatives of the people, so it's more of an indirect or representative democracy, with roots in the Roman Republic.
Because the UK is a constitutional monarchy, people feel more comfortable describing our system as such, but in reality the monarch has no "real" power, this aligns our system closer to that of a Republic.
So in reality we are a republic, although most would not like to think of it as such.
As an aside, some of the most successful countries are governed by "friendly dictatorship" under the guise of indirect democracy, e.g.: Singapore
So yes, in a rabble rousing membership such as ASN, guidance is best given as friendly dictatorship, rather than rabble rousing democracy. Because you won't please all of the people all of the time.
