    How are you all finding the pedal offset on the manual version, is it difficult to get used to.
    Be good to have some feedback although it's a bit late for me as it's build week.

    There's no doubt Audi fecked up the design when they did it. I guess they forgot about RHD.

    However everyone I know (including me and my wife) drive it first time and noticed it and then never think of it again.

    It causes no issues to us what so ever.

    But the offset looks massive, suppose as long as cruise is fitted a long run should present no problems.

    The shorter you are then I guess the more an issue it is. However my Mrs is about 5'2" and she has no problem.

    Seriously - I was concerned but I simply don't notice it now i've got the car.

    Anyway it's a bit late for second thoughts isn't it ? :rolleyes:

    I agree 100 % with Scotty.....I was really concerned after reading all the issues people say they have had, but I have the manual and I can honestly say neither myself at 6 ft nor my wife at 5' 2'' have had any issues at all and just really enjoy driving it.....what a car !

    As above don't find it an issue. After driving another car and coming back to the Audi it does takea a few minutes to get used to - just like getting in the wife's fiesta and trying to pull away without taking off the handbrake!

    Dropped into the dealer the other day to try driving position, you are all correct it's not a problem.
    Its getting close car was built on 16th so should be getting my hands on it within a couple of weeks.
