I've just been to see a 1999 A4 1.8T Sport (190 BHP) Quattro with a view to
buying it privately. The car comes with full receipted service history, low
mileage and is very clean.

The clutch seems much higher than normal 1.8T so concerned about wear however
I could not induce any clutch slip accelerating from about 25 mph in top.
(Present owner uses a direct exit onto busy road on a steep hill.) How else
can I check clutch?

At about 70mph road noise from rear was very intrusive. Much louder than 2wd
1.8T. This vehicle is running 225 P6000s worn down to wear bars on standard
17" rims. Is this normal?

I am eager to move up to 4wd and welcome any advice.
