to keep fingerprints away from the boot top, i just grab the inside handle and swing down the boot as fast as i can whilst pulling my hand out of the way at the very last split-second, which is quite a challenge. it latches fine, since i got my technique perfected!
On my UK spec car there is a handle recess inside the bootlid ( trunk ) on the right hand side that allows you to easily close it without leaving fingerprints on the paintwork ! Maybe some folks haven't discovered this ???
I believe the salesman told me that the trunk is fiberglass and not metal onDoesn't take a lot of pressure IMHO, just can't simply swing it down and expect the weight of the trunk lid to be enough to lock it in place.
Yea, my salesman had some wild ideas too. The hood and fenders are made of aluminum.I believe the salesman told me that the trunk is fiberglass and not metal on
the A5. This could be part of the problem as to not enough weight to close
that easy. He also mentioned while I am on the subject of fiberglass that the
front fenders and the hood are fiberglass as well.
