    they are 4 wheel drive but the drive to the rear axle is fed thru an electrically controlled viscous clutch (haldex system). a percentage of drive is always fed to the rear wheels, say 10%. but if the front wheels slip under accelaration then the percentage increases.
    its a very good system tbh. gives the best of both worlds tbh. you can also upgrade the haldex ecu, this gives more drive to the rear making the car less like a fwd car.

    Ive got the 225 Quattro (2001) coupe. Basically the 4-wheel drive set up is only there when its needed. The car drives sweet and handles well but the pre facelift models tend to look a bit high on the suspension. but if you do buy a pre facelift model then lowering springs are cheap enough to get hold of and will have the car handling and looking great.
    you can get good ones now for about the 6K mark and theres thousands out there, just make sure the cambelt and water pump have been changed.
