    Have a read through the 'sold the A3' thread, that will tell you what you need to know.... worth noting that the haldex system is not permanent 4wd.....from what i understand anyways....more of an intelligent 4wd that transfers power around the wheels as nessesary

    My understanding is that the Haldex works as a clutch which engages when it feels that it needs power to the rear wheels because of slip on the front wheels. HTH
