>From down deep in my dim memory vault, I thought Audi also raised the brake
pedal up a little. So the 2 pedals are less alike in vertical location. My
brake pedal is about 1cm (1/2 inch) above my accelerator. I have the
darndest time trying to heel-and-toe. I can't reach the accelerator. Maybe
my feet aren't wide and big enough. :-)
