    I think it's 50:50 with the ability to vary up to 65 or maybe 70% to front or rear depending on conditions.

    yep - mechanical Torsen quattro systems (i.e. the A4's) default to 50:50... but I though the max-torque bias was 80:20 in either direction :)

    I think the B7's are the same except for the RS4 which is 40:60 (front:rear) to start...

    If memory serves correctly, that applies to the Generation 5 quattro system with Torsen 3 diff as fitted to the B7 RS4 and S4, as opposed to the T2 Gen 4 systems fitted to the B6 range.

    EDIT:

    This is from Wikipedia, which I know has it's limitations:
