Ok, I know we're going into summer now, but am just interested what experiences people have had of haldex based Quattro in icy conditions perhaps versus same conditions in a FWD car? I'm thinking about winter tyres, but as I live in the barmy south and have the tyre maintenance pack it doesn't make much fiscal sense so was interested in thoughts? i know we've had a few threads/debates on Quattro here but they have been mainly focused on performance enhancement rather than wet/icy/snowy traction. Also final point, my wife has a Kia Sportage, also with Haldex AWD (probably version 4), will it be any better in ice/snow than my S3? It had lock 50/50 torque split front/rear and has hill decent control too. Thoughts? Does Audi set their Haldex up differently/better or no difference?
