I have two open diff-, EDL equipped Audis: the 1997 S6 and the 2004 
Allroad. The Allroad has replaced the 1998 A4 which also had EDL and the 
open diff in the back. All three although OK in the snow, are a far cry 
from my previous Audis with real lockable differentials.

This past winter I finally replaced the EDL assisted open diff joke in 
the back of my S6 with a Torsen diff off a wrecked V8 sourced as part of 
the S-list group from Germany. The behaviour on snowy roads has changed 
dramatically. I wish the V8 rear Torsen could be installed in the 
Allroad as well... Alas, no such luck for us.
