Hi all, I have just got myself a 2000 1.8T Quattro Avant (BIG smile!) and was wondering if you guys could give me a bit of info about the quattro system. I know it is permanent 4wd but does it still go through a viscous coupling? I only ask because when pulling away in 1st it feels like the front leads off, then about 1-2seconds later there is a slight kick from the back as if it comes in later. The car is still in warrenty and I am taking it to an audi specailist I know just to have a look over it for any major faults before it runs out and I would like to know a bit more about the system before I go.
