RE: Stiffer suspension (was A4 questions)

I'm looking for opinions about using stiffer (lowered) springs/shocks and
their effects on traction in snow and ice.  I once bought a set of stiffer
springs/shocks for my Rabbit, and I think that traction in snow and ice
suffered as a result.  As much as I like the looks and would enjoy driving a
stiffened up suspension on my 4000 for example, I'm not so sure I would do
it again on another car.  I would be tempted to leave it pretty much stock.
I'm curious about the effects on quattros, too.
