Hey Listers,
I am trying to settle an argument with one of my friends. He has a 2005 A4 
1.8T, in which the clutch is going out. The clutch is not covered under 
warranty as it is considered wear and tear. He was told that he did not have 
to shift with the clutch engaged if he did it at low rpm's. He was also told 
that this would do no damage to his transmission. I disagree and think that 
nothing good can come from this and he should get his clutch replaced asap. 
What do you think?
