Yes, I had forgotten about the pedal position - I've never driven an A5 and now remember why I never want to after sitting in one. It's obviously not such a problem with an auto but the manual has the clutch where the brake pedal should be!
How can Audi be so lax in engineering what is a relatively new and 'premium' design (and the A4 also suffers the same IIRC) - I don't think I've sat in any other modern car with pedals offset so much.
Roger....it's been said already - forget the manual and buy the car you should be considering - a 335d!
