One thing to remember about this diff.  From what i know from the Haldex 
book, the static ration is 100% computer controlled and can therefore be 
adjusted by the user if the software were to be available.

As far as how it drives...lemme say this, impressive.  I drove the FWD 
TT's, several times actually, and while they were nice, they werent to 
die for as far as driving (style, well, that is another story).  Anyway, 
the first time i took a sharp turn at full throttle in a TTQ i was VERY 
impressed, the amount of grip is very impressive....

Not as great as the UrQ i drive every day, but darn close....
