    Mine has done 103K and is still on the original. Our other A4 with 139K on the clock (130bhp 2.0 20v petrol) is also original but biting point is a lot higher than the other one.

    It depends on driving style. I just changed mine a few weeks ago while it was being repaired for a slight dent in the front and it had done 104k.
    My friend's only done 62k before he had to change it but he spent a lot of time in the city and driving hard.

    Looks like mines on the way out too...75k done although no idea of how hard the first
    42k were put on!

    Sometimes mine feels like it is slipping at low revs when pulling off, give it high revs when pulling off and it bites fine

    So can I assume that the higher the biting point, the closer to death?

    Any indication...have a choice to make, sell up or drive until it (may or may not) go on me...have a lot of miles to do this year so need to decide and cost or changing vs cost of fixing anything is the factor

    Also, was in multi-storey last night and by the third level, she seemed to be slipping like crazy, felt horrible.....
