Rich, I have 2975 miles on my '04 and no problemns with A/C. I did read on
the AudiWorld B6 forum a while back about some A/C issues with some cars.
My heated setas seem to be okay - I haven't tested the 'eveness' of the
heat, but it seems to be okay, based on my seat-of-the-pants feeling (pun
definitely intended).
