Re: AAAcKkkK!! Chains on a quattro! "

 I would tend to disagree with this statement,

"the quattro will help you accelerate and 
 go uphill, but is no value add over 2WD when braking or going 

If there is no traction available, say the whole driving surface is 
bioler plate, OK.  But in limited or varying traction conditions, the 
same system that helps you get up the hill will help going down.  The 
trick is use the engine and not the brake pedal!  Braking VIA the engine 
in an Audi Q is far superior to a 2 wheel drive vehicle, and to some 
SUV's I've driven especially when the Audi diffs are locked.

My 2 cents
