Default Auto Locking Feature

Did I read somewhere that our cars will lock themselves if we leave it unattended for some duration of time? If so, is this an MMI activated feature?

The one time in the history of owning the car that I didn't lock it, some punk ransacked it and stole my parking change...and trust in man-kind.

Default I don't think it has the feature anywhere - I think I'm going

to make one for both my A8L and Q7.

Sorry to hear about the your car...

If you unlock it and do not open any door it will lock back in 60 seconds.

Ok, so when I opened the drivers door to exit and then the trunk it must have disabeled that feature. Any way to customize it? Locking after 60 seconds as long as the key is out of range would be ideal.

My '09 A4 would lock after 20 seconds or so when you walked away but apparently the feature was discontinued by Audi at some point. As mentioned previously, the doors will only auto-lock if the door was unlocked and no door was opened.
