What tools do you need to take out the Spark plugs? 
I was looking at a 2000 A4 1.8T, it also have those coil packs... 
Also the Air Filter seems like a nightmare to take out compared with my 2000
A6 2.7T..

There should be a bolted bracket holding those hoses in place.  Loosening 
those bolts should give you enough slack in those hoses to get the coilpacks

out.  It's been a while since I did it, but I know I didn't unclamp those 
hoses entirely... just moved them out of the way.
