i agree. shame it wasn't standard..i find the a4 no good for airport runs.. i can't get the cases in...theres enough room in the boot but because of the opening being restrictive you can't actually get the cases in. if the seats could fold it'd make it so much more useful.
Plus i do alot of house alarms/rewires on my days off, and fitting 3m lengths of trunking in can be a ****! hence why i got myself some roof bars!
should've bought a navara in all honesty!
