    While looking for some info on Audi Quattros driving in snow & ice etc I found this video on YouTube.
    I'm also a Land Rover owner & never thought I'd see a car that could do what a Land Rover could do, very impressed.

    Check this out :yes:

    That is impressive! although looking at how the snow is packing the grills and wheels up it wont be long before it grinds to a halt. I suppose the ground clearance on the land rover will allow it to keep going and going.

    The grip from a quattro is certainly very impressive, with snow tyres they're virtually unstoppable!

    Yeah mate, there was not a single day last winter when i could not get out for a drive in me quattro. Thing is even without winter tyres the quattro will make decent progress but as you said, with winter slicks it will be unstoppable- in the true sentence ! The ABS pump will just buzz out and the car wont stop ! I know, it happened to me a few times and its embarassing when you can get up to decent speed on ice and snow but cannot stop ! I just asked for winter tyres at local tyre shop about 30min before !!! Got to be preppared...
