The role was followed with a bit part in the 1989 cult hit “Back to the Future Part II”.

Looking supremely casual and stylishly cool, Ejah Wood drove around Venice with a friend in an equally cool and stunning looking ride - the Audi A4. The compact luxury saloon arrives in both petrol and diesel variants. The older engines which were bulky and large have been replaced with awesomely silent, 1.8L turbo engines which provide a 20 percent greater fuel efficiency. The handling may not match up with the Jaguars and BMWs but the immaculately elegant interiors, the silent ride and the awesome 60 miles to the gallon make the Audi A4 a high value car for anyone.
