per the manual, EDL uses the ABS sensors to detect wheel slip. Once detected,
the EDL engages the brakes to cause the Torsen to shift the torque to another
wheel. The unit also detects speed (works at < 35 mph) and temperature of the
brakes (dunno what temp.).

Although this system in on the '96 A6s, the late '95 S6s have it too. You
can't find a word about it in the S6 manual. I asked for an A6 manual which
was provided to me gratis. (I probably paid for it twice...)
