My clutch engages high as well, always has...
Had my A4 for 3 years 35K miles and it's been high the entire time.
Never slipped, even when being 'aggressive'. 

'96 A4 2.8 V6-12v FronTrac

	on the topic, a question for all you clutched people -

	where in the clutches throw does your engine start to
engage?  mine did it at the last third of the throw.  that seemed
to me to be a sign of a worn clutch, so when i wrecked the car
i had them replace a clutch since labor would be a pitance as
the engine was already in bits.  the new clutch feels identical.

	1: they only said they did the clutch and charged for the part
	2: i'm an idiot and didn't consult other A4 cars to see how
	   their clutches felt.
