1. Brakes have been problematic on some 2.7T's and 4.2's. 2.8's have had different brakes that come from the A4. Some consider the 2.8's brakes inadequate. I would get my 2.7T again in a minute, not withstanding it's purring brakes at speed. The 2002 will have redesigned brakes for the 2.7T and 4.2. Don't know about 2.8. My bet is they won't have this problem.
2. This is a URL with a list of changes for '02. I can't swear it's complete. I've seen other lists which show Bi-xenon's and I don't think they're on this list.
3. Whether it's worth waiting for '02 is up to you. There are tradeoff's. I would wait for '02's, but I don't want to spend your money. Dealer's have been having some fantastic financing on leftover's. I also think some color combo's may have been dropped for '02, so, if you're in love with any of them, this is your last shot. That said, the sport mode option on the Tiptronic alone would make me wait for '02. The better brakes with Brake Assist is another biggie for me. Ditto the dynamic changes, stiffer structure, thicker glass. Maybe if you don't drive an A6 every day they might not be a big deal, but I would have to think they'll make a wonderful car even better.
4 My wife and I each got an Audi from Audi of Mendham in NJ. We're well satisfied with the dealer, and Bonnie Manniello is very nice to do business with.
