You do realise that the electronic parking brake will auto release when you try to accelerate.

i.e. From parked (overnight) with handbrake on and car powered down, Get into car, foot on brake pedal, power car up, when ready move foot from brake pedal to accelerator and depress, electronic brake will auto release.

That makes hill starts VERY easy as it works anytime you have the handbrake on and want to move either forward or reverse.
Always assuming you have your seatbelt on. Doesn't work if you don't. Can get messy. (No personal experience thank goodness). I love this feature and am very disappointed that the change to a foot operated handbrake in the Mk2 means that it is no longer available, AIUI.
