Ok...discussing it in detail would be inappropriate?  The Torsen diff has
relatively widespread use among many marques...don't believe everything
an automobile dealer tells you especially Audi dealers.  Unfortunately,
Audi low volume sales(its getting better) don't attract the competent
salespersons that other high volume dealers do.  Therefore, you never
now where the Audi salesperson you are speaking to just came from.  A
good Toyota salesperson can easily make five figures a month...most 
Audi salespersons are lucky if they make four figures a month.  Usually
an Audi dealer, upon trying to fill a position, only has one requirement,
a warm body.
