    My 2007 a3 tdi sportback quattro starts without having to press the clutch pedal. Is that right or not?

    Yeah, it’s the cr engines from 2008 on that needs the clutch down, it’s good practice to do this anyway, because you separate the gearbox from the engine, so the starter motor doesn’t have to work so hard.
