oh you dont have to tell me twice. this is my 4th audi [4kq, 5ktq, 90q, a4]
all bought after doing 1 winter with a fwd car going to tahoe every weekend
in the winter. thats why i put up with all the 'character' of the audi. =)

i throw a set of dunlop wintersport m2's on 16" borbets for the winter and
this thing is UNSTOPPABLE in the snow. i mean like, 60 mph 4wheel drifts on
I-80 passing cars with my gf sound asleep in the passenger seat.

its not as good as my 5k was, i miss the lockable diffs [i miss that car..
it was SO fast] but still the a4 is nearly idiotproof in bad weather. even
with the rain we get here in CA the awd is so justified.

but, even if the civic was awd... id rather be slow in an audi than fast in
a honda.

98 audi a4
98 triumph daytona 955
