A question for those that have already purchased the manual right hand drive Audi Q5 2.0 TDI.

I've only test driven the automatic 3.0 TDI, which drove great, but some reviewers have commented that the manual 2.0 TDI has an awkward driving position because the pedals are offset to the right, and also that the footrest hinders the use of the clutch? Is this true?

Is this a real issue for you, is it something you get use to? or is it best to just consider the automatics?
Thanks in advance.

I have driven a manual twice on test drives and apparently due to the gearbox bell housing the pedal box is pushed to the right, I did not find it a difficult or uncomfortable position as repeated by Autocar and What Car but what I did notice is that the clutch is close to the left foot footrest and I caught my foot on it, I have size 10 feet though !. This will not be a problem on an auto obviously as only 2 pedals. This seems to be a problem on all manuals built on this Audi platform
A4 - A5 - Q5 , come on Audi sort it out.
