Re: towing

I do not think that you would have any problem towing a
quattro with the wheels on the ground. You have a problem
if your gearbox is automatic. Did any quattro ever came with
automatic transmission?
Automatics have problem with towing as the oil pump in the gearbox
is attached to the input shaft from the torque converter. If the
engine is not running, lubrication is limited. That is why towing
an automatic is not suggested/limited. Manual gearboxes and differentials
in the quattro have splash lubrication, so no problem with towing
damaging the drive line. Leave the car in neutral ;-)

Hope this helps, Peter
