I would say driving style and road conditions are more to blame, but real
snow/ice tires will help. Keep in mind that if you lose traction, you lose
traction, regardless of quattro or nonquattro, tires, etc.
My first quat' experience was when I was 16 (oh-oh) & driving dad's new 4kq.
After watching many a quattro promo video and rallies, I thought I was
invincible. Took a turn too fast, went sideways into other lanes. Luckily I
regained control. I assumed quattro meant accelerate/turn/break with
Invest in snow tires. & try easing up on the throttle--let the car "catch
up" to the traction.
