When I bought my '94 90CSQ (in July) from a dealer, the salesman explained
what the switch did and when you'd use it. He recommended strongly against
using it, even to just try it out, as (at least in this generation of
Quattro) differentials had been known to break under the strain.

So, at least from my perspective, I'd rather not have people pressing the
button. Even though the lock disengages above 15mph, not knowing that its
engaged could be hazzardous if I start driving like its not engaged. Follow

Just my 2 cents.
