Don't be so hasty in your judgement.  While the locked center diff no doubt
works better in extreme conditions (such as trying to dig yourself out of a
snowbank) the Torsen diff works better during everyday conditions.  In this
instance, Audi obviously made a judgement call and decided that more people
will benefit more from improving the car's performance in everyday use than
compromising that in return for better performance during worst-case winter
snowstorm conditions.  You're just one of the exceptions...   :^)
