    Yes thats true to a point, The haldex system will send most (cant remeber the exact %) power to the front wheels in most driving conditions and only direct power to the rear wheels in the event that the front loses grip.

    Yep, it is true that Haldex quattro is fwd most of the time (unlike the torsen quattro found on a4/a5/a6 and a8. Having said that, it doesnt just come in when you 'skid' and it is more active than that and will actively grip when pulling away fast or in wet weather. Its still a great system
