I notice it every time I drive my 2004 A4Q after a long time. All
other cars seem to have equal height for both Gas and Brake pedal in
resting position. Is this normal, can the height be adjusted, Audi
expert users please comment.
I am posting a question for the first time on the board. I sincerely
appreciate the advice from all the members. I have been reading the
posts for almost a year now, and they are very very helpful.

I think in Audi's case, it may have something to do with the whole
ridiculous 'unintended acceleration' fiasco of the '80's, where people
were stomping on the gas instead of the brake. I think they
consciously have them on a different plane to help prevent this.

I hate the raised brake pedal too. My seat is adjusted for the gas
pedal. I'm pressing the brake pedal on the side edge to avoid having to
shift my leg.
I once got in an accident in a car having a raised brake pedal. The
edge of my shoe caught on the side of the brake pedal as I quickly
lifted off the gas. The extra second it took to recover resulted in
bumping the car ahead of me.
Next time I have a few free hours I'll take a closer look at the
mechanics down there. The brake on the A3 3.2 has a long travel so I
doubt it can be adjusted. Maybe the gas pedal can be moved.
