I have had my '98 A4 Avant Quattro for about 4 months.  Great car!  As for
the clutch, it does seem "high" whan compared to my 86' 4kcsq.  Actually,
not much different than the '89 200q though, from what I recall.  I actually
bought another '98 A4 Avant Q before this one.  I found it had a decent
number of oil leaks (engine, trans, rear diff) and the dealer (non-Audi
dealer) bought it back after the refused to have them repaired under their
warranty.  This one also has a small engine oil leak that needs to be taken
care of too (hopefully under the Audi Assured Warranty) .  So my suggestion
would be to check the car out for leaks as it seems to be a common problem.
Any other questions?

I test drove 3 of the above and on all 3, the clutch
Command? felt like it let up high.  Anyone have a 98
A4 V6?  How do you like your 1998?
