RE: quattro-digest V3 #455

Sounds like the variability on my wife's '95 Passat, where you kick it
into delay, pull it back to neutral, wait the length of time you want
for delay, and put it back into delay for good. I think the relay that
does this (as mentioned below) will work on front and rear of our
beloved Audis.
